e.control R series - the large selection of modules for distribution boards!

DALI devices can be commissioned directly with a PDA or a notebook!
LNS plug-in for managing the DALI devices

spega offers you the most extensive range of LON actuators for all kinds of installations. The e.control R series covers the classic distribution-box installation on DIN rails and includes digital and analogue inputs and outputs as well as fieldbus controllers for all room automation functions.

Suitable light actuators are available for all types of lighting, and are switched on by means of a high-current relay, a 1-10V interface, or by a universal dimmer. And that with 2, 4, 8, 12 or in fact 16 channels. Since dimmable lighting facilities are becoming increasingly important due to their efficiency in terms of energy, a wide range is particularly important here. e.control uses in particular universal dimmers for bulbs, low-voltage or high-voltage halogen lamps with 2 or 4 output channels and power up to 1140 Watts per channel, control elements with 1-10V output signal for electronic ballasts with 4 or 8 channels, as well as DALI controllers for up to 64 DALI ballasts in a maximum of 16 groups. All devices are equipped with configurable switch-on and switch-off delay, stair lighting and a scene management system.

By assigning addresses for the devices, the new DALI controller enables the operation of up to 64 DALI devices on a common data line. The devices are divided into a maximum of 4, 8 or 16 groups and can thus be separately activated via the LON bus. Since communication between the DALI devices and the controller is bidirectional, status feedback, for example, to report the failure of a lamp to the building control system, can also be issued. For configuring DALI devices and group allocation, spega offers a comfortable LNS plug-in. For the first time, it is now possible to perform all parameterising work on the DALI devices during initial commissioning or for maintenance purposes (e.g. when replacing electronic ballasts or when expanding to include new ballasts) using a notebook or PDA, too, via the built-in serial interface. In this manner, all work on the DALI system can be performed independently of the access to the LON network.

For the sunblind technology, the R series also offers an extensive actuator range. Actuators are available which can be connected to 230V sunblind drives with 2 or 3 limit switches as well as to 24V DC motors. The actuators are available with 4, 8 or 12 outputs each. Furthermore, digital SMI sunblind motors can also be operated by the new SMI controller and are recommended due to their high LNS plug-in for managing the DALI devices precision, especially in daylight control systems. Each Controller can operate up to 16 motors, divided in to 4 or up to 16 groups. Status feedback from the drives is available for building management systems. The application software for all sunblind actuators enables exact positioning of the sunblind in any intermediate position and at any slat angle. In combination with the sun tracking controller ombra BST, all actuators are suitable for sun tracking control and shading correction. Moreover, they have control over the priority management of movement commands from weather protection to commands to anti-glare commands.

The extensive analogue and digital I/O range of the R series is worth considering for HVAC technology. In addition to inputs for 0-10V or 4-20mA signals, actuators for all kinds of dampers are available with 4 to 16 channels. Every output has functions for output limitation, calibration or valve maintenance against jamming. The new MP Bus controller is furthermore capable of controlling up to 8 bus-compatible dampers or valve actuators. Beside status feedback information also connected sensors are read back by the MP Bus controller.

As is customary at spega, each channel is configured by an easy-to-use plug-in. With every plug-in it is possible to transfer parameters from one channel to a selection of further channels of the same kind by just a click of the mouse. This ensures speed and safety during commissioning.
