The latest generation of the Rapid fully addressable lighting-control system from CP Electronics offers a cutting-edge solution to the most complex lighting-control scenarios. The system combines modular mechanics with user-friendly software for a front-end PC and a graphical interface.

Key highlights of the system include an expandable lighting-control module (LCM), improved area controller and new energy-measurement technology.

The system can be configured to control rooms and areas with lighting-control modules networks from an area controller on each floor. An entire multi-building network can be created with area controlled linked with a backbone network cable.

Rapid can be interfaced to a building-management system using CPs BACnet gateway.

LCMs are available with eight or 12 outputs. The 8-output unit can be expanded to 12 with a plug-in module. Dimming protocols and volt-free options can be mixed on a single LCM.

The new Rapid area controller combines three switchable field bus outputs with TCP/IP Ethernet connectivity via an RJ45 port that enables it to become part of the building network via an IP address.

The energy consumption of all luminaires connected to a module can be logged and the associated reports accessed via a web-based reporting suite on the front-end PC. The date is also available in XML format.

Other benefits include graduated daylight linking. Emergency luminaires can be tested and monitored.
