Lantronix PoE++ Switch helps Hotel Marcel Net-Zero with power supply | Wbactive

IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lantronix Inc. (NASDAQ: LTRX), a global provider of secure, turnkey solutions for the Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) and intelligent IT markets, announced the Smart Managed Gigabit Power over Ethernet++ (PoE++) SM24TBT2DPB Switch was used to power the net-zero energy Hotel Marcel. Built in 1970, the hotel is a designated historic building and is part of the Tapestry Collection by Hilton, a group of historic boutique hotels.

“To create the net-zero energy Hotel Marcel, we used alternative resources like the Lantronix PoE++ switch to power the entire hotel, including the lights and even our window shades,” said Bruce Redman Becker, FAIA, LEED AP by Becker + Becker and owner of Hotel Marcel.

Case study overview

With advanced technology contributions from Lantronix and its value-added reseller (VAR) Sinclair Digital Services, Hotel Marcel is the first net-zero energy hotel in the country to be fully powered by its energy-efficient DC microgrid. The hotel’s renewable energy solution is partially powered by Lantronix’ state-of-the-art PoE++ switch.

Challenge: Support the creation of a Net Zero Energy Hotel

The hotel owner’s ambitious goal was to create an environmental sustainability model by building a net-zero energy hotel that would run entirely on the energy generated.

Included challenges:

  • Identification and implementation of the most efficient energy technologies
  • Renovation of a 50 year old historical building
  • Accommodating a very tight schedule

Solution: Lantronix Smart Managed Gigabit Ethernet PoE++ Switch

The hotel team turned to Lantronix, a leading provider of high-end Power over Ethernet solutions for smart buildings; and Sinclair Digital Services, experts in providing sustainable, safe power sources that enable efficiency, reduce costs and provide a positive experience for building occupants.

To power the hotel’s on-site renewable energy generation solution, the hotel team chose the Lantronix PoE++ switch. As the only UL-certified switch with true 24×90 watt power and direct high-voltage DC power supply, the switch supports the latest PoE standard, ensuring the highest possible integration with other smart building solutions. The Lantronix team worked with their partner to customize the functionality to ensure it met the hotel’s unique energy needs.

Result: Hotel generates 100 percent of its own electricity

Supported by Lantronix’s custom PoE++ switch and a smooth and integrated installation by Sinclair Digital Services, the hotel generates 100 percent of its own power and energy to power, automate and control all of its electrical systems, including lighting , automatic blinds, heating and hot water as well as the refrigerators of the guest rooms.

As the country’s first net-zero energy hotel, Hotel Marcel is also one of the first Passive House certified hotels and one of less than a dozen LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) platinum certified hotels in the country.
