ADVANCED MULTIPLEX TRANSMISSION
Full 2-WAY Remote Lighting Control System
The LPA Series is the “Advanced” version of PLC-Multipoint’s multiplex transmission Full-2Way remote lighting control system. It uses just two 24 V signal wires for all of the switches on a network, and controls lighting using mechanically latching relays. This reduces the number of wires needed compared to conventional control wiring.
The system is cost-effective and easily-configurable with programming and accessories. Centralized monitoring and control of lighting can handle up to 256 circuits per system, and it is logically capable of turning up to 127 groups of lights on and off in an entire section of any application area. Up to 72 control patterns can be programmed to match work schedules or habits, allowing for maximum occupant satisfaction while achieving energy and operating cost savings. The LPA is easily configurable to match a daily schedule for lights to be automatically turned on and off. Passive infrared motion sensor control
is also offered to turn on and off lighting depending on occupancy of a monitored building space.
For additional energy savings, indoor daylight sensors are available which respond to the brightness of the environment. In addition to the capabilities above, this system offers added energy saving possibilities by adding optional components such as; dimmer controls; and PLCSensors line of CES sensors for indoor, outdoor, atrium and skylight applications. Programmed operational functions such as: Photo Control, Sweep, Time Scheduling and Override. Communication protocols include RS485 Modbus and Ethernet BACnet. Optional zones of control can be configured.
