CIMCON’s Plug & Play Wireless Lighting Controller (iSLC) with Remote Monitoring, Dimming, GPS, Metering and Sensor Input Capabilities

CIMCON’s iSLC-3100-7P

CIMCON’s iSLC-3100-7P is an intelligent wireless lighting controller with exceptional fault tolerance and a multitude of features. Each iSLC-3100-7P provides intelligent ON/OFF switching, dimming control, GPS, highly accurate power metering, analog and digital sensor inputs and constant status and health monitoring of your lighting fixtures.

  • A Photocell in Every Controller: CIMCON’s iSLCs operate immediately upon installation without dependency on the network.

  • A GPS in Every Controller: CIMCON’s GPS capabilities reduce install times and eliminate future mapping issues. GPS coordinates for each iSLC are sent automatically to CIMCON’s cloud-based Central Management System for overlay on a Google Maps interface. Without GPS, installers must manually record the pole ID, iSLC ID and its Latitude/Longitude location to map them correctly.

  • Extended Surge Protection: CATB surge protection is standard, while CATC surge protection is available as an option.

  • Full ANSI C136.41 7-pin Dimming Receptacle Support: CIMCON’s iSLCs work with any lamp type or manufacturer with full support for all 7 pins on the ANSI C136.41 dimming receptacle for true “plug and play” installation. CIMCON’s controllers support the addition of digital or analog sensors, such as motion, vehicle counts or environmental sensors through pins 6 and 7.

  • Revenue Grade Energy Metering: CIMCON’s iSLCs monitor Current, Voltage, Frequency, Power Factor, kW and kWh, and offer metering accuracy as high as .5% for accurate consumption data and billing.

  • Fault Tolerance: Each CIMCON iSLC is a highly intelligent stand-alone device that utilizes the latest developments in self-organizing, self-healing, wireless technologies. Proper operation and execution of a light’s schedule is not dependent on network communications.

  • Remote Control and Scheduling: CIMCON’s iSLCs support multiple lamp control modes such as user configurable ON/OFF/DIM schedules programmed on a daily / monthly / special events basis, local ad-hoc control, photocell and astro-clock scheduling, and mixed mode scheduling incorporating sensor inputs.

  • Flexible Dimming Control: CIMCON’s iSLCs support dimming through 0-10 VDC, PVM or DALI interfaces.

  • Fault Monitoring: CIMCON’s iSLCs provide extensive fault monitoring to report on day burners, burnouts, lamp cycling, ballast failures, over/under voltage, abnormal power consumption, low power factors, communication failures and more. All faults are sent to CIMCON’s cloud-based Central Management System for alarm routing, visualization and fault correction. Alerts can be sent directly to relevant users via emails or text messages (SMS) immediately when they occur. Alerts are time stamped and contain key parameters associated with the fault/alarm.
