Flicker-Free Lighting

Traditional drivers are inefficient, and eventually cause flickering. Cence intelligently delivers DC power to lighting to eliminate inefficiencies caused by traditional drivers.

This makes your lighting low-maintenance and flicker free.

Cence LVDC

How Cence Works

There are two Cence cabinets: Cence Class 2 low-voltage (LVDC), and Cence Class 4 high-voltage (HVDC). Cence LVDC can receive 4 types of power inputs: renewable energy, power from energy storage, AC power, and Digital Current™ from Cence HVDC. If either of them receive AC power, they make a highly efficient AC to DC conversion (up to 99% efficiency).

Cence LVDC has 8 internal drivers (LM1's) with 4 channels each. Each of these channels sends up to 60V DC, or 100W, to connected devices, such as LED lighting and our smart power splitters. In total, Cence LVDC can send up to 3200W per panel. Cence optimizes cable usage, and power yield, with daisy chaining.

Cence HVDC has 5 internal transmitters with 1 channel each. Each channel sends up to 450V DC to transceivers as Digital Current™. Digital Current™ is what makes our system a fault-managed, Class 4 power system. Furthermore, the Cence transceivers have integrated DC-DC converters that supply devices with appropriate voltages. Cence HVDC is ideal for projects with longer cable lengths because sending higher voltages reduces line losses, saving energy.

Cence HVDC, LVDC, smart power splitters (external devices to the LVDC panel), transceivers (external to the HVDC panel), and our wireless sensors, are all connected to our wireless mesh network. The wireless mesh network allows all connected devices (ex. LED lighting) to be monitored, and parameters to be controlled, automated and optimized via our digital twin cloud-app.
