Dynalite range of Open Protocol Dimmer Controllers, have been designed to meet the future demands of projects. These devices are capable of transmitting all industry standard ballast protocols (1-10V, DSI, DALI and Broadcast DALI) and support two ranges of install opportunities of both DIN rail and wall box, to allow for flexible install opportunities. The Open Protocol Dimmer Controller range also support a vast range of ballast controllers with a variety of circuit numbers and sizes to work individually or as part of a system, suiting any project requirement.
Within any project, many different lighting load types may be required to achieve a desired result. Each of these load types may require a different style of control. The Dynalite range of multipurpose controllers allows customization of output types via different output module units. When using DIN-rail multipurpose controllers, a specific type of control can be chosen for each circuit: relay, leading-edge dimmer, trailing-edge dimmer, driver control, controller with out-of-the-box functionality, fan control, and blind/screen control.In any combination, multiple load types can be controlled from a single device. This simplifies installation and prevents wasted capacity of circuits that are not required.
Within any modern project, many third-party systems can be found performing different roles. Each separate system may use a different protocol for communication. Dynalite has developed a range of gateway devices that can be used to synchronize these systems’ functions into one integrated system solution. By utilizing the correct gateway, different systems can be integrated, allowing end-users access to a fully automated site from one interface. By successfully integrating third-party systems with a Dynalite solution, repetitive end-user interaction is reduced.
As one of the most popular forms of lighting control, relay controllers can have the greatest impact in terms of energy management and lighting control. Available in both DIN-rail and wall-box configurations, this Dynalite solution enables a vast range of relay controllers with a variety of circuit numbers and sizes to work individually or as part of a system, thus fulfilling any project requirement.
LED PWM Controllers
Capable of directly driving LED fittings, the Dynalite LED Dimmers use Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) technology to great effect. Perfectly suited to Red, Green, Blue (RGB) color changing applications, chase sequencing or provision of elegant scene settings. The Dynalite LED drivers come in a range of configurations to meet the compatibility requirements of many of the available LED fittings. Each device is ready to receive native DMX allowing them to be used in color mixing or chase sequence applications.
Regardless of the level of integration and range of available functions, a control system requires an intuitive end-user interface, so that users can easily schedule and activate the various control functionalities. Philips Dynalite user interfaces come in a broad range of Keypads, touchscreens and wiring devices – with a rich variety of styles and finishes to match any project budget, level of interactivity, or décor requirements.
Trailing edge dimmer
Devices with trailing edge output are suitable for use with most types of dimmable electronic transformers. They can operate from a three phase or single phase supply, and is especially suited for controlling track mounted fixtures on a three circuit track. Philips Dynalite’s superior voltage regulation and soft start technologies protect lamps, dramatically extending their life. The power circuit for each channel is contained within plug in modules for ease of maintenance. The device incorporates a Programmable Logic Controller that can process complex conditional and sequential logic and macro functions. It is DMX512 compatible, making it perfect for use in theaters and auditoriums.
Philips Dynalite timer clocks are true astronomical 365-day clocks with sunrise/sunset tracking, automatic daylight saving adjustment, and powerful macro and conditional logic functions. The timer clock interfaces with other devices over the DyNet RS485 network to automate tasks and trigger time based events. It may be used as an energy management controller or simply to select scenes at preset times of the day or week.The timer clock is powerful enough to provide full automation of a large commercial project and can be programmed with events that automatically run at a specified time. A typical application would entail automatically adjusting lighting levels throughout the day, using long fade time to ensure a disruption-free and smooth work cycle. If required, a local button press on a panel can override the pre-programmed events until the next timed event occurs.
The Dynalite sensor range combines motion detection, light level detection and IR receive in one unit. Each of these features can be operated at the same time, allowing automation scenarios such as turning on the lights after detecting motion and then dimming the lighting level once the available sunlight has been measured, thereby providing additional energy savings. By combining each of these functions into one device, operational efficiency is improved. Each sensor has an in-built microprocessor, allowing logical functions to control one small room, the floor of a building, or an entire building. All sensors receive their power from the DyNet network, and as they are fully remotely programmable, they can be configured to automate and control a virtually unlimited number of controlled outputs.
