G.E.’s Remote Control system consists of modular components which the user configures to his application’s needs. The basic low-voltage wiring allows flexible switching of any lighting load, grouping of lighting circuits for common control, and pilot light status feedback, providing a strong foundation for automation.
The new Smart Sweeper takes this simple automation to a new level. The time clock determines “normal occupancy”. Five minutes before end of day, the Sweeper blinks the lights to warn occupants staying late. Any override can be timed out with another blink warn at the end of the time delay period.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- Multiple switch control simplifies central and local control of lighting and makes it possible to control lighting easily from several locations.
- Pilot light status feedback provides visual indication of lighting status at remote switching location. (Applies to individual relay).
- Relay grouping for common control. Simple, low cost “multi-pole lighting contractor” function. Circuits can be grouped for common control and reconfiguration as the building layout changes without affecting line-voltage wiring.
- Low-voltage control wiring. Small, low-voltage cables replace costly line-voltage wiring and conduit. Particularly important for long switch legs
- Master ON/OFF with individual override allows a group of relays to be turned ON/OFF as a group while retaining the ability to override an individual load. This is a basic requirement for successful automation: automate the OFF function for an entire floor or zone, but allow an individual occupant to turn his area back on.
- Blink warn. Critical function to protect occupants and reduce complaints when automatically turning off lighting. Not only provides warning, but protects the occupant’s override from the next sweep.
- Time delay overrides provide a simple means of automatically timing out occupant overrides after hours.
- Occupancy sensor control. Individual areas such as conference rooms and restrooms can be controlled based on occupancy. In conference rooms, local switches still allow lights to be switched off for presentations.
