CIMCON’s Plug & Play Wireless Lighting Controller (iSLC) with Dimming Capability

The iSLC-3100-480-7P

The iSLC-3100-480-7P is an intelligent wireless controller that uses a highly robust and reliable self-forming and self-healing RF mesh network, and is economical for use on individual light fixtures for remote control and operations. Each iSLC-3100-480-7P provides intelligent ON/OFF switching, dimming control, accurate power metering and health monitoring of the light fixture. Support is also included for inputs from motion or light sensors for control of groups or individual light fixtures.

  • Robust and Reliable: Reliably operates over large distances.

  • Wireless Technology: The controller utilizes the latest developments in wireless RF technology that is self-forming and self-healing.

  • Light-agnostic Support: Works with any lamp type or manufacturer.

  • Simple and Easy Remote Monitoring: The controller monitors various assets of the lighting fixture and updates the Central Management System.

  • Remote Control and Scheduling: The controller supports five lamp control modes. Control can be based on user configurable ON/OFF/DIM schedules programmed on a daily / monthly / yearly / special events basis or can be controlled locally using a built-in astro-clock that calculates sunset and sunrise times using location and time zone data throughout the year.

  • Dimming Control: The controller supports dimming of any lamp with a 0-10 V or PWM input dimmable ballast with up to 10 dimming schedules.

  • Power Metering:The controller can monitor electrical parameters such as Current, Voltage, Frequency, Power Factor, kW and kWh.

  • Fault Monitoring: Extensive fault monitoring is provided that reports lamp burnouts, lamp cycling, ballast failure, over/under voltage, abnormal power consumption, low power factor, communication failure and more. All faults are sent to the Central Management System that generates alarms for visualization and fault rectification.

  • Burn Hours: The controller keeps track of lamp burn hours for predictive maintenance, allowing proactive lamp replacement.

  • Plug and Play Installation: iSLC 3100-480-7P uses the latest 7-pin NEMA interface for a true plug-and-play installation that includes dimming and motion-based controls.
