Receptable outlet controller

The Split Duplex Receptacle Outlet Controller provides a simple solution to meet energy codes without requiring complex changes to a facility. The controller can retrofit your existing duplex receptacles simply and quickly, without the need for new wiring. The controller offers a duplex receptacle with a 15-amp relay-switched outlet and a 15-amp constant-power outlet. Its auxiliary output allows for additional standard outlets to be controlled by its internal relay. Compatible with Gentec wireless occupancy sensors, the outlet can be switched based on room occupancy, helping to meet the most stringent ASHRAE and California energy codes. The Split Duplex Controller mounts in a standard electrical box and will accept a decorator style face place (not included).


Arrow shaped LEDs provide permanent marking of the control outlet and users can choose to have the LEDs turned off.


The controller activates electrical loads with received input from a linked sensor or switch transmitting:

  • Ambient light levels monitored by a wireless photo sensor
  • Occupancy state monitored by a wireless occupancy sensor
  • Switch action from a wireless single or dual paddle wall switch
  • Switch action from a wireless key card switch
  • Switch action from a wireless door/window (reed) switch
  • Gateway control implementing schedules or other events

The Split Duplex Controller fits equally as well into hospitality applications. Responding to linked key card switches that monitor suite occupancy, control can be added to lighting or other electrical circuits to disable the loads when the suite is vacant. The controller can also be used to enable and disable air-conditioning equipment based on the occupancy state and/or patio door position.


Other features include telegram repeating and BEMS system integration allowing the controller to be used both in distributed control applications or as a component of a centralized system.

  • Use for controlling plug-in electrical loads
  • Occupancy based automation with auto-ON/OFF or manual ON + auto-OFF using wireless occupancy sensors
  • Monitors linked battery-free key card, proximity (reed) switches, wall switches, occupancy sensors and photo sensors.
  • Range Confirmation allows optimal placement of linked sensors, (Gentec wireless sensors with range confirmation feature only)
  • Central command support for BEMS gateway control
  • Supports commissioning via Smart Click, Simple Tap or Garibaldi (remote management) software
  • Assign up to 20 battery-free wireless wall switches or sensors to one controller
  • Reliable radio reception range of 24 m (80 ft), commercial office spaces (typical), up to 100 m (330 ft) line of sight
  • Low-cost alternative to running wires and conduit, ideal for retrofit projects
  • Doubles as a telegram repeater
  • Single-channel 15 A relay and 15 A constant-power outlets
  • 120 V power input
  • Tamper resistant receptacles
