Interfaces

iLight manufactures a range of integration tools to assist with the construction and configuration of the iCAN network and for interfacing with external system components.

EG2

 


Ethernet Gateway

The Ethernet Gateway provides a connection between an iCAN network and an Ethernet LAN. This allows a user to control and configure the iLight system using iCANsoft on a LAN network PC or via the internet rather than by connecting directly into the iLight network. Where a wireless LAN is in place (or by connecting a wireless router into the Ethernet Gateway) the user can access the network with a Wi-Fi enabled PC.

The Ethernet Gateway is also the host for the iLight series of remote applications including iOS (iPhone®/ iPod touch®/ iPad®) and a webserver front end where applications are downloaded separately. Coupling the EG-2 to a WIFI network enables secure scene control, visual feedback and modification from your hand held device.

The Ethernet Gateway also facilitates connection to the internet when used with iCANsoft, a firewall, ISP and a Ethernet switch, this then enables remote connection for controlling, programming & obtaining diagnostics of the lighting control system.

The Ethernet Gateway is available in two versions:
EG2-NA - Ethernet Gateway including power supply and steel enclosure.
EG2 - Ethernet Gateway in DINrail enclosure. Power Supply and metal DINRail enclosure available to order separately.

BN-2

 


Bridge

iLight network segment to iLight network segment bridge device

  • Repeater where cable lengths exceed 1000m
  • 16 sequences each with a maximum of 128 actions
  • Programmable sequence capability
  • Message filtering and isolation for large networks
  • Dimensions: 124 x 49 x 23mm


 



SI-2

 


System Integrator Node

The bi-directional System Integrator Node allows control of a wide range of third party equipment through the iLight user interfaces including audio systems, TVs, projectors, blinds, curtains, heating and HVAC systems, security & fire alarms, surveillance and CCTV.

The SI-2 converts iLight protocol into third party device compatible RS232 protocol enabling a sequence of commands to start from the touch of a button. For example in a home cinema - lights dim, blinds close, audio system turns on, screen opens, projector turns on and the DVD starts.

  • Configurable RS232 COMMS via 9 pin female D type (Send/Recieve)
  • Adjustable baud rates of 1200, 2400, 4800, 9600, 19200, 38400, 57600, 115200
  • 1 x iCAN Bus data connection via screw terminals
  • Status LEDs
  • 20 programmable serial commands - triggered from the iLight network
  • 16 sequences each with a maximum of 128 actions
  • Dimensions: 124 x 49 x 23mm

 



RI-2

 


Relay Interface

The Relay Interface provides a versatile interface between the iLight network and other control systems. The unit is fully configurable and may be programmed to perform switching functions for curtain or blind control, AV and presentation equipment or drive contactors for heavier power applications.

  • 8 relay outputs
  • 8 inputs - programmable as analogue or digital used for volt free switches or motion detectors
  • 16 sequences each with a maximum of 128 actions
  • Audio Visual RS485 port, 2 alarm inputs
  • Dimensions: 240 x 220 x 90mm
  • 3 Kg

 



SCD24

 

DMX Controller

The SCD24 is a 24 channel DMX controller. It is designed to provide scene set dimming for any DMX512 controlled load via the iLight network.

  • DMX controller
  • 24 channels

UIG-2

 


Universal Interface

The UIG allows other items such as partition switches or PE cells to provide inputs to the iLight network. When configured for a room join, moving the partition will open or close a magnetic proximity switch contact (not included) and automatically re-program the function of the control panels within the room.

  • 4 x 0-10V analogue inputs for volt free switches or motion detectors
  • 4 volt free contact closure inputs
