Modules

With the introduction electronic transformers on LV light fittings and the advance of LED applications, dimmer systems today need to be tailored to best suit the load types. Various lighting control technologies are available in the State Automation Modular Power Control Range

Clear

Description

Advanced phase control (APC) technology is a Highly Efficient “Green” dimmer, uniquely developed by State Automation’s engineers to provide a new generation of dimmers with high rise time (that is, extremely good filtering) but with low heat loss compared with other dimmers. APC also greatly increases the range of switchable loads that may be controlled by the dimmer channels.

In addition, each APC dimmer output can be supplied with an optional relay to enhance its functionality. The fitted relay may have either NO (Normally Open) or NC (Normally Closed) contacts. They can be connected either in parallel or in series with the load. This provides three control enhancements that are exclusive to the SA APC Dimmer Modules.

VST is the most technological advanced dimming technology available on the market. A dimmer incorporating Variable Sinewave Technology (VST) is close to an “ideal dimmer”. Dimmers employing VST technology produce essentially zero electrical noise pollution. Specifically, power factor, input harmonics and output harmonics are all dramatically reduced when compared with phase control dimmers.

VST is a new type of dimming technology, using modern insulated gate bipolar transistors (transistors) and pulse width modulation (PWM). This enables an AC input voltage to be regulated to produce a variable amplitude sinusoidal output, with virtually no change in frequency or wave-shape.

Unlike other Reverse Phase Control dimmer, State Automation’s RPC uses an innovative approach to create a slower turn off edge. It has a slim case without using a chunky heat sink and equips a discrimination circuit to protect dimmer from both overload and short circuit. When an overload happens, it reduces the output voltage gradually until a rated current is reached. If a short circuit appears, it shuts down the circuit after confirming a short circuit by sending a series of pulses to the output. The RPC module also has a load type detection circuit which will sense the load condition and shut down its output a heavier inductive load be connected.
