EDT Introduces New Switch to i -LiNE Lighting Control System

Electronic Design Technology -September 2006 - Manufacturer of the i-LiNE Lighting Control System has announced a new addition to the product line; the i-ON-L, a 2-wire latching relay switch.

Why the New Switch?

The new 2 -wire relay switch has a 1500 watt resistance that will enable i -LiNE to control much higher loads. For example, it will now be possible to control over the network a 1200 watt entry way chandelier, or an automatic electric fireplace, or a large bank of commercial fluorescent lights. The market has shown a growing demand for the ability to control high wattage fluorescent lamps, incandescent lamps, resistive loads, and small motors. The i -LiNE system now has this ability.

i -ON -LS 1500w Relay with Sensor Input

One of the great features of the i -LiNE system is ability to control lighting and other fixtures using contact closures. Program a scene to activate when the garage door opens or have the outside security lights turn on when the alarm is set. The options are endless with the i -PoRT -C1 and i -PoRT -C4 contact closure modules.

Together with the i -ON -L, EDT has introduced the i -ON -LS switch with Sensor Contact Closure Input. Prior to the release of the i -ON -LS, the i -PoRT -C1 contact closure module had to be purchased separately. The i -ON -LS relay switch now has a sensor contact closure built in. Essentially, the i -ON -LS has eliminated the need for an external i -PoRT -C1, cutting the costs to almost half. Also available is the i -ON -slS which is the 'slave' or 'scene' switch to the i -ON -LS.

It has become apparent that in our day of technology home automation has extended far beyond simple lighting control. EDT recognized this early on and has designed the i -LiNE network to accommodate much more. With the i -PoRT -C1 & C4 and now with the i -ON -LS, i -LiNE can control blinds, ceiling fans, fireplaces, garage doors, entry gates, as well as many other security and convenience applications.

i -LiNE 230Volt International Update

After announcing the release of the 230V version of i -LiNE in August 2006, EDT immediately began receiving interest from around the world. The production crews are now processing large shipments of the 230V system to South America and Russia. Many additional regions have also expressed their interest in i -LiNE 230V version.
