The E-Flex lighting and energy control system is a relay based controller for switched and 0-10V lighting control for direct connection to dimming ballasts and LED drivers. The system is flexible enough to act as a standalone room controller, or to accept DMX512 directly to easily integrate alongside DMX-based architectural lighting. It is available with four or eight output circuits and four input banks to accept occupancy, daylight, contact closure and CapT wallstations.
It is an ideal solution for standalone applications – classrooms, conference rooms, offices, or to simply light public spaces such as stairwells, hallways, or lobbies. Built-in support for occupancy and daylight sensors provides a complete energy management solution. Receptacle zone type is provided to meet automatic receptacle control requirements. Additional inputs provide UL924 emergency, timeclock, or demand response support. Demand Response includes load shed adjustment on a zone-by-zone basis for maximum flexibility to meet energy codes and reduce power consumption. An integral astronomical timeclock option is also available with 50 events and support to control individual panels and zones or to broadcast an event to all panels on FlexNet.
E-flex provides support for both primary and secondary daylight zones controlled from a single photocell. Secondary daylight zones can be adjusted on a zone-by-zone basis using DASC (daylight scaler) which scales the effect of the daylight sensor on a zone from 100% down to 0.
Each input bank has an input for Lehigh’s CapTTM wallstations which provide a capacitive touch button interface with wake-on proximity sensing for low-power operation. CapT wall stations include button layouts with up to 7-buttons from simple ON/OFF to a 4-preset recall with OFF, and raise/lower control.
With DMX512 and RDM support the E-Flex integrates alongside DMX-based lighting fixtures and is compatible with Lehigh’s Solitaire and Impress DMX architectural control systems, as well as the DX3 architectural processor.
