When connected to one of these HVAC programmable controllers, each expansion module can control up to 4 DALI buses (typically 16 ballasts)
As part of the Smart Room Control solution, the ECx-Light-4DALI expansion module can be freely combined with ECx-Light-4/4D lighting modules and ECx-Blind-4/4LV sunblind modules to control up to 8 light groups or DALI buses, and 8 shade / sunblind motors.
- The ECx-Light Expansion Modules operate off of a separate sub-network bus (governed by the main HVAC controller). This optimizes the control possibilities while allowing such a modular solution (HVAC controller + expansion modules) to be interpreted as a single device by the network, thereby avoiding unnecessary system overloading.
- In addition, by positioning the expansion modules directly in ceilings, close to the lights, the installation effort is reduced. As well, connecting the module to the main HVAC controller through a single RJ-45 cable reduces wiring costs and minimizes the risk of errors.
- Custom program the ECx-Light expansion modules directly when configuring the main HVAC controller using EC-gfxProgram. This allows you to quickly and easily create your own control sequences capable of meeting the most demanding requirements of any engineering specification.
- Moreover, the internal electronics being powered by the host controller, the lighting load consumption can easily be monitored, allowing for energy counting, and allowing the supervisor to instantly detect abnormal power usage and anticipate bulb maintenance as part of a proactive preventive maintenance program.
