The Gateway is the brain of a Lightcloud™ system. It communicates with RAB’s servers via a private 3G cellular connection, so no internet access is required. Plus, it features an Uninterruptible Power Supply for added peace of mind.
The Controller is the basic building block of the Lightcloud™ system. Use it for switching and 0-10V dimming. Deploy it for power management. Or simply use it to extend the range of your Lightcloud mesh network.
The Lightcloud Controller gives you switching and 0-10V dimming for a single fixture, a group of fixtures or an entire circuit. It supports a load of up to 20A—this equals twenty 85-watt fixtures. Professional-grade design means you’re commissioning far fewer hardware components for a given space.
You’ll start saving money from day 1—but don’t just take our word for it. This Controller features sophisticated power-monitoring intelligence to give you data that matters, show you exactly how much energy you’re saving and where you can improve. We’ll even help you use this data to secure rebates from your utility company.
The Controller communicates with the gateway and other devices wirelessly. It uses a secure encrypted 2.4 GHz self healing mesh network to transmit data. Each Controller extends the network and provides other routes for data to optimize its path. The good news is, you don’t have to wire home runs to each fixture, saving you considerable money on installation time and complexity.
If for any reason the Controller has trouble communicating with the Lightcloud network, it can seamlessly failover to a pre-configured emergency state—for example, turning on all lights to full on. Plus, if you lose power altogether, the Controller remembers its last state and restores these settings automatically when the power returns. With this kind of proactive detection, Lightcloud is a natural fit for any business continuity strategy.
