W-DMX™ partners with Schréder

The leading Swedish manufacturer of Wireless DMX technology has recently supplied the global group Schréder, an architecturally driven manufacturer and integrator of outdoor luminaires.

The Italian division has recently fitted several LED flood lights with RGB control in the Municipality of Alba, in the province of Cuneo. Alba is considered the capital of the UNESCO Human Heritage, and therefore has several restrictions for new outdoor installations.

As part of the specifications, Schréder had to light up the Medieval Bell Tower, as well as the Bonino and Parussa towers, all monuments visible from the town square. This included a total of fourteen new LED fixtures that washed the entire monuments. The council also had in mind to reduce the energetic bill considerably, by replacing the existent incandescent sources to new energy-efficient luminaires.

In order to connect all the new fixtures to a centralised control position, Wireless Solution was asked to provide 5x WhiteBox F-1 G5 transceivers, sending one universe of DMX to multiple locations, and 7x WhiteBox F-2 G5 dual-link transceivers to receive data to a local position, and repeat the signal around the medieval construction. The DMX playback control was provided by a Pharos LPC1 controller.

Marco Ugo, Filed Application Engineer at Schréder S.p.A, liaised with Wireless Solution through the process: “The brand was recommended to us by our headquarters in Belgium – the W-DMX™ team quickly helped us specifying the project and guided us through the installation. The system just worked!”.

In the past year we have supplied the Belgium and Hungary divisions on multiple projects, one of them fitted in Jerusalem”, commented David Ferraz, International Business Development Manager for Wireless Solution Sweden. “We’re delighted to partner with such a reputable company, and offer a system that truly fits their needs, without reinventing what already is a trusted and reliable technology”.
