Those with an eagle eye, may have seen the new AntumbraLite lighting control panel on the Dynalite.org site.
The newly announced AntumbraLite sets new standards for functionality and aesthetic appeal within the market.
Responding to market requests, particularly from the hospitality industry, for a more cost effective user interface, AntumbraLite is engineered to deliver focused features while retaining the Antumbra look and feel.
AntumbraLite reuses AntumbraButton’s mechanical parts without the networking components has resulted in a cost-effective addition to the control market. It is intended for use with Dynalite load controllers that have dry contact inputs.
Available in the full range of Antumbra button and rim finishes, AntrumbraLite also supports customized button labelling with text or icons to suit any application.
I will provide more information as it becomes available.
Each AntumbraLite can send six dry contact signals out. Each of these must be wired to a compatible load controller that supports dry contact inputs, such as the DDRC-GRMS-E (18 dry contact inputs), DDMC802 (8 dry contact inputs), and DDRC810DT-GL (8 dry contact inputs).
If required, additional user interfaces can be connected using a dry contact input device such as the DDMIDC8, DPMI940-DALI, and DLLI8I8O. Each of these devices can respond directly to dry contact inputs, or forward them as network messages for the system to then execute the requested function.
The AntumbraLite panel can also be used with a DPMI940-DALI and used as a DALI user interface.
We are currently exploring other applications for the AntumbraLite that could be beneficial, and will provide updates as we find them.
