The Smart Driver is connected to the wireless mesh network via the AMBR and the Amatis 6LoWireless protocol. Every Smart Driver includes an RJ12 port designed to connect with the Amatis Controls Sensor2 MLTH. When connected, the sensor can detect occupancy, vacancy, available daylight, temperature, and humidity levels within the sensing area. Then the sensor leverages the Smart Driver’s on-board 6LoWireless communication to transmit that data across the network.

The Smart Driver wires in like any other driver. Line (voltage) and neutral wires give power to the Smart Driver.  The Smart Driver outputs low voltage DC to the LED tube or tubes, with a positive wire on 1 side of the LED tube, and the negative wire to the other side.  Dimming capability is controlled within the Smart Driver, requiring no additional wiring.

Amatis offers a few select Smart Fixtures, which come with Smart Drivers pre-installed, making installation as simple as putting in a new fixture.

What is the difference between an Advanced Load Controller and a Smart Driver?

An Advanced Load Controller will generally be used when you’re installing new, dimmable LED fixtures or when you’re just looking to control dimmable LED fixtures.

The Smart LED Driver is used when you’re retrofitting, but not replacing, linear fluorescent fixtures. Choose this product when you have a flourescent fixtures and you want the lowest-cost, fully dimmable solution without replacing the fixture. Replace the fluorescent ballast with our smart driver, and the fluorescent tubes with Type C LED tubes.
