Connect Digital Box is a highly flexible, configurable and intelligent lighting control module. Designed to change the way lighting controls are incorporated into buildings. Fixed wiring is replaced with plug-in simplicity and soft wiring connections, resulting in the lighting control being part of the lighting installation by default. The CD Box consists of 6 output channels providing control through various protocols (DSI/ DALI and Analogue dimming and conventional switching), with the capability of connecting motion detectors and volt-free switch inputs. The CD Box has the ability to convert a simple momentary push-button switch into a sophisticated smart switch, that is, one switch dimming, partitioning, scene selection and more, without the high cost associated with conventional lighting control systems. The CD Box is completely compatible with the existing and highly successful MLS Digital Managed Lighting System (MLS). The flexibility of the CD Box enables it to be used in wide range of applications including commercial, industrial, educational and hospital installations.
For example, the CD Box can be installed at the base building stage, when a minimum level of lighting controls with basic switching is required. As a building becomes increasingly occupied, each CD Box can be upgraded to add dimming and motion control to expand the functionality of the lighting control system. By using soft wiring connections, luminaires can be easily plugged into existing channels or swapped between channels to suit new floor layouts. Simple programming changes are made via an infrared programmer. By connecting an MLSUCA Control and Communications Interface, each CD Box can be monitored over an internet or Ethernet connection and interact via BAC net protocol to other systems (BMS, HVAC, SECURITY).Features & Benefits:
- Quicker and easier installation for time and cost savings
- Elimination of wiring faults as pre-wired luminaires and detectors are delivered direct to site
- Greater flexibility as luminaires and detectors can be changed or repositioned without major disruption
- Programmable switch inputs that can be allocated to control lighting loads as desired
