With just a glance down the hallway, an SSW series hallway sign provides highly-visible indication of a room’s availability as part of a complete Crestron® enterprise room scheduling solution. Its stylish appearance and vivid color illumination complement any corporate office environment. The two-sided, clear acrylic sign face glows bright green or red to indicate room availability. The sign face is custom engravable with the room number, name, icon, or other designation. The complete sign assembly mounts to the wall over a single-gang electrical box or plaster ring.
Room Availability Status
For room scheduling applications, the SSW simply connects via USB to a Crestron TSS-770, TSS-1070, TSW-770, TSW-770-GV, TSW-1070, or TSW-1070-GV series touch screen. No special programming or configuration is required. The sign color is controlled by the room scheduling application, which runs on the touch screen and syncs with Crestron Fusion® or another room scheduling service. The sign illuminates green when the room is available and red when the room is occupied.
Custom RGB Colors
For custom applications, the SSW can be integrated with a Crestron control system and programmed to illuminate in a wide variety of colors. Its RGB LEDs can be controlled in 10% increments per color. When powered by USB, any single color LED can be used at full brightness, while if connected via Cresnet two color LEDs can be used at full brightness simultaneously. Three color mixing is possible when powered by Cresnet if each LED is limited to 70%. The control system can be programmed to support all types of functionality, enabling colors to alternate, fade in and out, or blink on and off as desired. Control system integration can be accomplished through a USB connection to a TSW-770(-GV) or TSW-1070(-GV) series touch screen, or through a Cresnet® connection to the control system.
The SSW is available with or without custom engraving. The engraving appears on both sides of the acrylic sign face to identify the room by name, number, or a representative icon image. When illuminated, the engraving is clearly visible at a distance of 50 feet or 15 meters. Engraving can be changed at any time by purchasing a replacement sign face (model SSW-ACR-100 or SSW-ACR-102 ). Specifying the engraving is facilitated using Crestron Studio® software.
Installing the SSW is simple. It mounts to the wall over a standard 1-gang electrical box or plaster ring. Power and communications are supplied by a single USB or Cresnet wire. A six foot (1.83 meter) USB cable is included, which connects to the touch screen mounted below. Alternately, a Cresnet cable (sold separately) can be run to a control system up to 3000 feet (914 meters) away. Cresnet allows for daisy-chaining multiple hallway signs using a single cable.[1,2]
Mullion Mounting Option
When a suitable wall surface is not available, the SSW can be mounted to the mullion of an interior glass wall, window, or partition using the optional SSW-MUMK Mullion Mount Kit (sold separately). The same kit may also be adhered directly to the glass or any other smooth surface.
Note: The SSW may be converted to an SIW-100 Room Availability Status Indicator by replacing the acrylic sign face with an SIW-ACR-100 acrylic indicator lens.
