Crestron Lighting Processor Provides Easy Installation and Setup

Crestron Green Light(tm) Controller Fits in Standard 3-Gang Electrical Box

ROCKLEIGH, NJ, January 19, 2009 - Crestron announces its new IPAC (Integrated Professional Automation Computer) 2 -Series control processor. A compact, low -cost solution for many lighting and automation applications, the IPAC -GL1 is designed for simple wall mount installation. Built -in relays, sensor inputs, plus Ethernet, Cresnet, and RS -232 ports enable connectivity to all kinds of devices, controls, and networks. The onboard e -Control® Web server achieves complete integration as part of a facility -wide managed control network.


The IPAC serves as the central control processor for a Crestron Green Light™ power switching system. Right out of the box, a preconfigured default program, user -friendly LCD display and front panel controls enable easy setup and programming for a complete switching system consisting of:
• Up to 210 switched loads
• CNX -B, C2N -DB, or Cameo keypads (up to 16 total)
• 41 occupancy sensors and photo sensors
• 100 time clock events

The IPAC utilizes a built -in astronomical time clock to automatically turn lights on and off according to time of day or sunrise/sunset. Lighting events may be programmed to occur at specific times or at an offset. Occupancy sensors and photocells may also be implemented to enable automatic on/off lighting control based on room occupancy and ambient light levels.
The IPAC can also be custom programmed to seamlessly integrate with the entire Crestron line of touchpanels, wireless remotes, lighting dimmers, shade controllers, thermostats, and more. It can also interface with third -party devices and systems such as security and access controls, surveillance cameras, and HVAC.

For installation flexibility, the IPAC is designed to be mounted in a standard 3 -gang electrical box, independent of the lighting panels.
