Phase Cut Dimming Module (PCDM)
Key Features & Benefits
- Adjusting light levels to respond to variable lighting requirements
- Scheduling luminaire group operation to lower energy use during off-peak occupancy
- Customizing lighting scenes for tailored experiences/tasks
- Adjusting luminaire group assignments for adjusted space layouts
The Phase Cut Dimming Module (PCDM) provides an interface between the phase cut dimmable (forward and reverse phase) ballasts/LED drivers and the ENCELIUM EXTEND Networked and ENCELIUM EDGE Standalone Wireless Light Management Systems. The PCDM is automatically addressed as soon as it is connected to the GreenBus II network. Individually addressable, the PCDM enables each group or zone of fixtures to be independently controlled and configured to best meet the needs of the facility.
The PCDM is designed to control popular load types such as Incandescent/ Halogen lamps, Fluorescent ballasts, LED fixtures, and LED/CF lamps. The phase cut dimmable fixtures connected to a PCDM can then be controlled by any of the ENCELIUM EXTEND low voltage wall station controllers, the Touch Screen Panel or from Polaris 3D® software through the GreenBus II communication network. The PCDM has a built-in relay which provides ON/OFF switching control in addition to smoothly dimming the fixtures.
