Industrial automation manufacturer says its compact Network LED Dimmer, a solid-state and networkable device, uses pulse width modulation (PWM) to control LED brightness (0 to 100%) for 9 to 30 Vdc constant voltage LED lighting assemblies such as lamps, bulbs, strips, ropes, and bars. Used alone or teamed with other dimmers, the Network LED device is suitable for applications that requires variable light from LEDs. Lighting designers, facility engineers, and architects can use the dimmer in applications such as path marking, backlighting, and facade or wall lighting. When connected to an RS-485 serial network, multiple Network LED Dimmers can be integrated into a lighting, automation, or building control system that supports DMX512-A, Modbus/ASCII, or Optomux network protocols.
The dimmer includes a built-in test pushbutton for ramping LED intensity up and down, connectors for wiring a pushbutton for manual operation, and indicator lights to show serial communication and ramping operation.
As with other Opto 22 products, the Network LED Dimmer has a QR code imprinted on the inside cover that makes current documentation and configuration information available immediately. Scanning the QR code with a smartphone or other Internet-connected mobile device brings up product instructions, specifications, wiring, and an interactive utility for configuring internal DIP switches; see an example here: http://op22.co/LED-SPCV-LV100W The Network LED Dimmer, Opto 22 part number LED-SPCV-LV100W, is available now at a list price of $79.00.
