Unified Lighting Control
Unified Lighting Control completes the BAS, incorporating lighting and HVAC controls on the same network. This network consolidation eliminates surplus hardware required for stand-alone and gateway lighting control. As a result, installation and maintenance costs decrease while simple and complete building control increases energy savings. This approach provides more savings for less cost.
When a complete Building Automation System (BAS) is required, Unified Lighting Control is the superior lighting control solution.
Products - Relay Panels
Relay Panel (RP) is a UL Listed lighting control panel. RP may be scheduled from any BACnet BAS and is compatible with all low voltage switches, occupancy sensors, and light level sensors. RP mounts near the circuit breaker panel to provide centralized control of branch lighting circuits. Relay Panels are available in 08, 16, 32, 48, and 64 sizes to accommodate up to 64 Lighting Tough Relays (LTR).
Products - Zone Control
Zone Control (ZC) is a UL Listed distributed lighting controller in a compact junction box mounted package. ZC may be scheduled from any BACnet BAS, and it is compatible with all low voltage override switches, occupancy sensors, and light level sensors. ZC is suited for new or existing buildings, and may be scaled from basic to advanced control sequences; including daylight harvesting, load shedding, equipment optimization, and trending.
SpecIfying Unified Lighting Control aligns the responsibility of each contractor (BAS Controls Contractor & Electrical Contractor) with their area of expertise.
In simple terms:
The BAS Controls Contractor furnishes the lighting control system.
The Electrical Contractor installs the lighting control system.
By aligning each contractor's responsibility with their area of expertise integration uncertainty is eliminated, and there is one point of accountability. Blue Ridge Technologies offers a two part BACnet Guide Specification, based upon CSI 2004, that makes specifying Unified Lighting Control easy.
