Room Controller - Phase angle dimming (600W)

The ER6CD is a phase adaptive line voltage lighting
controller that provides forward or reverse phase dimming based on the connected load type. The dimmer makes upgrading to a hybrid lighting system easy, by offering phase-adaptive, line voltage dimming for tungsten, twowire fluorescent, line-voltage LED, and 120 V electronic lowvoltage transformer loads. As a lighting controller, it dims lighting loads with received input from linked sensors or switches based on:

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


The controller will fade lights up or down on a switch ON or OFF event. Closed and open loop dimming control is available for daylight harvesting applications. With only occupancy sensors 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. A photo-inhibit feature will ignore Auto-ON lighting with occupancy when the natural light level monitored by the light sensor is above the day-lighting set point.


The ER6CD 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.


A variety of configuration methods allows installers and facility operators to manage configuration settings without any tools, reducing call-backs and installation expense.
