Save time and money with the Room controller

Comparison

Addressing

Time to address and arrange a full DALI line *

Room setup

Time taken to setup a full DALI line with 10 rooms, 2 switches / room and 2 sensors / room in absence or presence mode

Grouping

Time to Group a FULL DALI line into 10 rooms.

Single change

Time taken to make a single DALI change. Includes connecting / getting the current value and writing value

Thousand changes

Time takes to make 1000 changes on a DALI line. Includes connecting/ getting the current value and writing value

Replace / repair

Time to setup a single DALI light fitting after failure including adding to group and allowing switch and sensor control.

Comparisons made between zencontrol Room controller and other manufacturers DALI gateways. Times are based on the commissioning job by an agent/ engineer and not the installation by the electrician. *Due to the room control design, devices are addressed and assigned to rooms automatically, removing the need for specific address locations.

Fixed loads – no problem

 

Every channel on the Room controller can be toggled to act as a fully complaint DALI relay. This relay can be used to control other non-DALI loads, seamlessly integrating their control with other DALI products.

 

Additionally, the Room controller will detect non-DALI loads and automatically setup them up associating the control to the previous channel.

The Room controller represents a significant paradigm shift within lighting control. Building upon traditional LCM and DALI Gateways, the Room controller makes a generational jump.

 

Automatic addressing

zencontrol products address DALI devices automatically and is complete before you even need it.

 

Add additional fittings at any time knowing they will be addressed and added to the system.

 

Simple setup

The room controller groups and sets up the rooms automatically, allowing the lighting, switches and sensors to work out of the box.

 

Switches and sensors can work in absence or presence, with time outs of 10/15/25/30 minutes, without a commissioning agent.

 

Additionally, throughout its entire life, any additional or replaced products will also be addressed, grouped and setup automatically reducing downtime and expensive call out fees.

 

Comissioning errors sorted

Issues associated with duplicate DALI addresses, which can be caused when relocating fittings, pre-addressed devices or poorly designed products are automatically fixed with zencontrol.

 

Additionally, the original device will retain its address while the newly added device will be moved to the next free location,  reducing the time spent fault finding.

Wiring

 

With the zencontrol room Controller, wiring becomes simpler and easier. Compared to traditional LCM wiring, less custom lead lengths are required making installation for the luminaire manufacture and the installer easier.

 

Wiring the room controller could not be easier, for each room, simply connect all light fittings, sensors, switches and emergency lighting together and back into a single channel on the room controller.

Logical numbering

 

The zencontrol room controller makes your job easier by sequentially numbering all devices found in a room, even after you add more devices.

Sequential numbering makes the process of commissioning and fault finding easier

Shorts

 

From time to time manufactures products fail, in some cases the DALI Ballast or drivers can short the DALI line. In other cases, poor wiring or setup can lead to a DALI line short. Most Installers know that finding a DALI short is a timely process which can sometimes leave the lights uncontrollable for some time.

 

The room controller is able to identify the room in which a short is present and isolate it from the rest of the DALI line. This significantly reduces the fault-finding time and additionally leaves all other rooms operational

Full featured and controllable

Out of the box the room controller is designed to work, however a commissioning agent can tailor the product to work for almost any custom requirement.
