Lighting and Shades Control

Overview

Studies show that lighting can account for up to 30 to 40% of a building's energy use.

Distech Controls' lighting control offering, from our Smart Room Control solution to our EC-Light relay panels, can reduce lighting energy usage by up to an estimated 70% via a multitude of energy saving control techniques:
  • Event-based scheduling



  • Occupancy detection

  • Timed Switching

  • Daylight sensing

  • Task tuning

  • Load scheduling

Smart Room Control Solution – Lighting and Shades Control



Distech Controls' Smart Room Control Solution is an end-to-end system for the control of HVAC room terminal equipment, Lighting, and Shades/Sunblind, achieving the highest levels of comfort for occupants while increasing operating cost savings, from installation time and wiring/material requirements to energy consumption.



It is a unique, modular solution designed for local or room applications, such as offices, patient rooms, dorms, military housing, etc.
  • ECx-Light Series
    The ECx-Light Expansion Modules are microprocessor-based interfaces that extend the number of inputs and outputs provided by the ECL/ECB-PTU Series controllers as well as ECY/ECL/ECB-VAV controllers.
  • ECx-Light-4DALI
    The ECx-Light-4DALI Expansion Modules are microprocessor-based interfaces that extend the number of inputs and outputs provided by the ECL/ECB-PTU Series controllers as well as ECY/ECL/ECB-VAV controllers.
  • ECx-Blind Series
    The ECx-Blind Series Expansion Modules are microprocessor-based interfaces that extend the number of inputs and outputs provided by the ECL/ECB-PTU Series controllers as well as ECY/ECL/ECB-VAV controllers.

Lighting Control Panels

EC-Light lighting control system is fully configurable, making it easy to provide optimal illumination in different zones (i.e. reception, corridors, offices, and parking areas) and allows for quick re-configuration if changes are made to the building environment. The system also provides for minimized energy waste by delivering the best possible lighting in all settings and situations, regardless of occupancy state.

EC-Light is designed to meet the requirements of any commercial or industrial lighting application, including accent and general lighting.

  • Configurable using EC-NetAX™ EC-Configure wizards or LNS-based EC-Configure plug-ins to quickly and easily create energy saving lighting control sequences
  • Fully automates interior and exterior lighting networks
  • Completely configurable for optimal illumination of different zones (i.e. reception, corridors, offices, and parking areas)
  • Control up to 64 zones with one panel


EC-Light is sold pre-mounted in steel enclosures and comes standard with input controller, heavy-duty relays and output controllers. Standard EC-Light panels come with 8, 16, 32, or 64 relays, or can be customized for specific installation requirements. For additional functionality, an EC-Light-Scheduler or EC-Light-Display can be mounted directly on the panels.

  • Lighting Controls Panels
    Mounted in steel enclosures, the EC-Light Panels are available in standard sizes including 8, 16, 32 and 64 relays and come standard with input controller, heavy-duty relays, output controllers, 120/277/347 Volt transformer and a movable protection plate between high and low voltage sections. For additional functionality, an EC-Light-Scheduler or EC-Light-Display can be mounted onto the panels.
  • EC-Light Input and Output Cards
  • EC-Light Display
    EC-Light Display is a multi-function backlit LCD Display. It is the perfect interface for any sized system, where a PC front end is not always required or where a manual interface is desired for a faster and more convenient access.
  • EC-Light Scheduler
    EC-Light Scheduler is a device dedicated to storing and managing the scheduled events needed for any lighting or HVAC control system.
