Room Controller - 0-10V Dimming

Gentec’s lighting controllers use wireless technology to monitor the room’s environment. The ERDRC controller can activate lighting loads with received input from a linked sensor or switch. As a lighting controller, it operates lights based on:

• Ambient light levels monitored by an wireless photo
sensor
• Occupancy state monitored by a wireless occupancy sensor
• Occupancy state from a connected wired occupancy sensor
• Switch action from a wireless wall switch
• Gateway control implementing scheduled events


The controller will fade lights up or down using the dimming output for a switched event. The controller can also be configured to fade lights based on an occupancy sensor ON or OFF event. With auto detection on the low voltage dimming interface, the controller can adjust between switching only to dimming automatically. A photo-inhibit feature disables Auto-ON when the natural light level measured by the light sensor is above set point.


When only occupancy sensors are linked to the controller, the sensor will automate the lights both ON and OFF. Alternately, in Vacancy Sensor mode the controller will assume manual-ON, auto-OFF operation.


The ERDRC-FC offers central command support to integrate with Building Management Systems gateways.


The controller is Range Confirmation compatible, working with all Gentec wireless sensors equipped with the range confirmation feature to provide visual feedback of a linked sensors signal strength for optimal sensor placement.


There are 3 ways to configure the controller which allows installers and facility operators to manage configuration settings without any tools, reducing call-backs and installation expense.


Simple Tap uses the switches and sensors that are linked to the controller to set the associated configuration parameters.


The ERDRC-F controllers have Gentec’s Smart Click Technology which allow configuration changes to be made with a linked wireless switch. Gentec also offers Garibaldi software which allows configuration of the controllers from a PC.
