C3 Lighting pioneered Remote Power and Control of LED Illumination, also known as Distributed DC Power. In 2009 C3 Lighting, Inc. proposed that the LED should be considered simply one component of a lighting system, allowing a building’s illumination to be more easily configured as a network. In addition, the conversion of AC to DC power to drive a fixture’s LED’s should not be on or in a fixture, but in a central location. This eliminates LED drivers and the controls required for dimming and illumination color changes from fixtures. This model is the basis for C3 Lighting’s Remote Power and Control Network for LED Illumination.
