This short video, produced by the Lighting Controls Association at the 2011 LIGHTFAIR event, introduces the building industry to the P-Series lighting control system by PLC Buildings, a division of PLC Multipoint. The P-Series is a multiplex transmission Full-2Way remote lighting control system. It uses just two ±24 V signal wires for all the switches […]
Multipoint Control Systems was founded in 1978 to design and manufacture products for the lighting controls industry. Multipoint Control Systems’ product line evolved over the years into a full range of photo sensors and control products, meeting the needs of an ever-changing industry. Several innovative patents were developed, combining sensors and controls. In 1991, PLC-Multipoint […]
PLC Multipoint has introduced Nebula, an energy-saving dimming solution for classrooms. Key to this solution is the use of Satellites, which enable control scenarios to be replicated easily throughout multiple classrooms. Utilizing Panasonic’s Full-2Way bus architecture, the Satellites are connected via 2 polarity-neutral wires. This makes the installation very simple, while also providing network control […]
This short video, produced by the Lighting Controls Association at the 2011 LIGHTFAIR event, introduces the building industry to Bantam, an 8-relay, all-in-one lighting control panel by PLC Buildings, a division of PLC Multipoint. The Bantam comes standard with 8 relays, 8 switch inputs, an astronomical clock and keypad programming. The panel also comes standard […]

PLCBuildings, a division of PLC Multipoint, has announced availability of The Bantam, an 8-relay, all-in-one lighting control panel. The Bantam comes standard with 8 relays, 8 switch inputs, an astronomical clock and keypad programming. The panel also comes standard with 4 analog photosensor inputs and Micro SD card.
Control wiring provides a path for command and status communication between control devices in a lighting and control system and, in many cases, power to the devices as well. Wiring is interrelated with overall lighting control system considerations—such as selection of control system and components, layout and installation practices—and is therefore an important consideration when choosing a lighting control solution.
Daylight harvesting’s value proposition is fairly simple: As daylight levels increase in a space, electric light levels can be automatically reduced to maintain a target task light level and save energy. All automatic daylight harvesting control systems need a device that can measure light levels and signal a controller to dim or switch the lights in response to daylight contribution. This device is called a photosensor. The photosensor is a small device that can include a light-sensitive photocell, input optics and an electronic circuit used to convert the photocell signal into an output control signal, all within a housing and with mounting hardware.
Panasonic Electric Works of America and PLC-Multipoint, Inc. have announced a contractual relationship whereby PLC-Multipoint will act as a United States distributor of Panasonic brand of lighting control equipment based on the unique Full – 2Way communication protocol. PLC-Multipoint will also use Panasonic brand components for their own product lines.
