EDT i -LiNE Introduces New Products - i -ON -L and the i -PoWER -MX4

LONGVIEW, Texas - Electronic Design Technology (EDT) recently announced the release of two new additions to the product line: the i-ON-L, a 2-wire latching relay switch and the i-PoWER-MX4, advanced 4-port network interface module.

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 your garage door opens or have your outside security lights turn on when alarm is activated. The options are endless with the i -PoRT -C1 and i -PoRT -C4 contact closure modules.

Along with the i -ON -L, EDT introduces the i -ON -LS switch with Sensor 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. In other words, 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.



i -LiNE Network Gets an Upgrade
i -PoWER -MX4 - Advanced Interface Module

Upgrade: Timers with built in Astronomical Clock

The newly designed i -PoWER -MX4 has taken all of the useful features of the original Interface Module and has added a few more. i -LiNE users will now have the ability to set timers to the network based on an internal astronomical clock.

What are the benefits of a having timers? Simply put, they enhance the features of automation and convenience. If you happen to be a home or business owner, you will now be able to automate your standard sprinkler system to a preset list of times to automatically turn on and off. If security is important to you than you might appreciate the ability to activate a sequence of lights to turn on and off making it appear as though someone is home. If you tell the kids lights out at 10:00pm, you can now enforce it at 6:00pm knowing i -LiNE will follow through with a pre -programmed timer to turn off the lights in the kids' rooms. With the new i -PoWER -MX4, you can worry about what really matters and let i -LiNE take care of the rest.
