iLux® Integrated System Control Now Shipping

Now Shipping: iLux CLS-C6 Integrated System Control

Crestron is now shipping its iLux® CLS-C6 Integrated Zoned Lighting System. iLux CLS-C6 controls six lighting zones and 6 groups of shades. The iLux CLS-C6 replaces the litany of switches and dimmers on the wall, and centralizes the lighting, shade and screen controls. Users won't need to search for the right switch plate or fumble through trial and error to find the right combination of light settings. The iLux CLS-C6 enables 16 user-preset lighting scenes, and offers the added benefit of seamless integration with Crestron's award-winning AV control solutions.

The iLux CLS-C6 is a cost-effective, wall-mount unit featuring a built-in control processor and dimmer circuits to control six lighting zones for dimming incandescent, magnetic low-voltage, neon/cold cathode, and 2-wire dimmable fluorescent loads. On/off switching of many non-dimmable lighting loads is also possible. Each channel will handle up to 800 watts individually, with a total rating of 1920 watts for the complete unit.

The six front-panel 3-position rocker buttons control each zone and provide white-LED feedback. Behind the flip-up front cover, the corresponding 6 green LED bargraphs offer easy visualization of lighting levels in each zone. A front-panel "Master" button and large "Off" and "On" buttons provide additional lighting system control. Up to 16 scenes for lighting and shades may be pre-programmed for simple, intuitive homeowner use. Fade time and ramp rate are programmable along with various system functions such as scene recall, scene off and master dim control. Each scene may be assigned to individual buttons at setup.

Beyond the extensive yet simple front panel control, the iLux CLS-C6 accommodates up to 16 Crestron keypads and 16 shade controllers for expanded system control capability. An optional built-in motion detector and up to two external motion detectors are available for occupancy sensing to automatically turn lights on or off, or activate a programmed scene.

Additionally, up to 8 CLS-C6 units may be daisy-chained, enabling systems of up to 54 lighting zones and 54 shade groups. Commands for typical functions like scene recall, scene off, master dimming, and occupancy status are shared between the CLS-C6 units. Each individual unit can still support a complete assortment of local devices including keypads, shade controllers, and motion detectors.

System programming is easy from either the front panel using the mode select and setup buttons, or from a PC via the programming port using the supplied intuitive setup software. All programming buttons, ports and LEDs are elegantly hidden behind an opaque flip-up panel. A built-in astronomical clock ensures reliable system synchronization and timed functionality. Available in black, white or almond the iLux CLS-C6 is a cost-effective, versatile and powerful lighting control solution.
