iLight set new standards in lighting control panels Monday 18 August 2008 PDF Print Two advanced lighting control panel ranges have been launched by iLight, part of Cooper Controls. Known as Revio and Ineo, they combine good looking high tech design with simple intuitive operation. The Revio is the company's new premier range with touch pad control and is unlike any other lighting control panels available today. Good layout leads users to simply press the on / off button or touch the surface of the panel to select the scene or zone they want to control, making it much easier than having to navigate through traditional panels with many buttons of the same size and shape. Twisting the rotary knob raises or lowers the light levels accordingly. Users will love the easily identifiable power button - it's even softly illuminated when off - so they can always find the light controls even in a darkened room. The light icon, rotary control, and liquid glass-styled touch pads are complemented with a customisable label insert. Installers may easily present button labels in any language or graphic. And unlike single group rotary controls, Revio rotary dimmer controls can go beyond single group control to take control of multiple groups of lights in any area. Scene and zone names on the control panel are backlit and can even produce an audible click when a scene is selected. And despite its power, the new Revio is the only lighting control user interface simple enough to deliver a full range of control features within the single gang back box (included). Two methods are available to configure the Revio panels. For easy configuration a range of six standard panel templates can be selected via a Source Controller. For more advanced configuration, iLight's iCANsoft(TM) software can be employed to configure each button for a variety of functions. Ineo is the second range of control panels being introduced by iLight. Again it sets new standards in simple ergonomic layout. A large circular on / off button is presented within a configurable button module with up to 10 different button configurations possible using large or small button options. Panels are shipped with back box included. Panels may also be ganged together to meet particular project requirements. All buttons have backlit indicator lights and provide strong tactile feedback. Revio and Ineo panels can be incorporated into any iLight system, which can include systems such as energy management, dimming, occupancy sensing, energy metering etc. Extensive customer research has been the driver for developing these new ranges - to produce instantly recognisable, simple, intuitive controls, for even the first time user. -ends- Image caption: The Revio range of touch panels from iLight are unlike any other lighting control available today.
