Next-Generation Lighting Solutions Speed Programming, Installation

DENVER - Sept. 14, 2006 - AMX®, a worldwide leader in advanced control system technology, unveiled its next -generation, full -feature lighting family - the Radia Eclipse™ Series. The first products introduced in the new line are dimmer modules that will make configuring, integrating and installing lighting with AMX control systems easier than ever.

The Radia Eclipse Dimmer Module 4 (RE -DM4) supports four traditional dimmers and two specialty dimmers, while the Radia Eclipse Dimmer Module 6 (RE -DM6) supports six traditional dimmers. In total, the new AMX lighting system can support up to 768 dimmers - a more than eight fold increase over the previous generation Radia lighting solution. With this additional capacity, the Radia Eclipse Series can handle the lighting needs of nearly any indoor or outdoor space.

"With the Radia Eclipse Series, AMX is making it easier than ever to program and install lighting, because we have transformed complex lighting requirements into simplified, cost -effective solutions," said Robert Noble, AMX's vice president of product management. "From programming to procurement, the Radia Eclipse Series simplifies lighting for AMX dealers."

The Radia Eclipse Dimmer Modules are:
• Easier to integrate. The modules are native NetLinx® devices designed to interface with AMX's full line of residential products.
• Easier to program. The modules are also native VisualArchitect devices. Simply drag and drop the desired lighting module into the customer's system, and VisualArchitect will automatically generate the NetLinx code.
• Easier to configure. Lighting presets can be saved and reused in multiple zones within the same structure/campus, as well as other customer installations.
• Easier to install. The modules communicate with the NetLinx Controller via the AXLink control network.

The new Radia Eclipse Dimmer Modules also offer greater processing power than the previous generation, enabling the modules to recall lighting presets almost instantly. The RE -DM4 and RE -DM6 are RoHS compliant and are available in both 120 and 240 Volt Alternating Current (VAC) for domestic and international installations. Both modules can be used with any of AMX's full line of user interfaces - Mio Modero Keypads and Handheld Remotes, as well as its flagship Modero Touch Panels.

The RE -DM4 and RE -DM6 will be available by December 2006.
