PCS PulseWorx UPB Relay Fixture Module, 20A
Solution For Fluorescent Lighting
The FMR-1 Fixture Module Relay is a single channel high quality wire-in home automation non-dimming relay load controller which is capable of transmitting and receiving digital commands and status over the existing powerlines.
The ideal solution for fluorescent lights, or other non-dimming loads (such as motors or transformers), that need to be individually controlled but are not currently wired to a dedicated wall switch location.
Simply mount the FMR1 on any standard electrical box by snapping it into a 1/2" knockout. The module can either mount outside of the box or reside in the box. Use standard wire-nuts to connect the FMR1 to line and neutral and the loads. The high 20A rating of the Fixture Module Relay can control any conventional 20A residential circuit.
Receives From the Powerline
The FMR1 will accept powerline commands from any UPB-compatible transmitter such as the PulseWorx Keypad Controllers, Timed Event Controller, Interface Modules, Approved Third-Party Controllers, Touch Screens, and WS1s. It can be a member of up to 16 Links/scenes with the capability to store a pre-set relay state of 0% or 100%. Each pre-set state can easily be adjusted by the homeowner using the innovative PulseWorx manual programming method.
Transmits To the Powerline
Each Fixture Module can be configured to transmit status changes and inform the rest of the network when the Timed Auto-Off function has automatically turned the relay off. This allows the FMR1 to remotely control other devices or update indicators (LEDs on our keypads).
Easy To Configure
Like all PulseWorx devices, the FMR1 can be initially configured using PCS's free UPStart Setup Software tool. UPStart enables configuring such parameters as Network Name, Network ID, Unit ID, Room name, Device name, default on light levels, fade rates, LED colors, dimming disable, auto shut-off time, etc. as well as test the operation and communication strength of the device. UPStart has the option to configure an entire network off-line and then download the information into the devices after they are installed in the home.
UPB PulseWorx Lighting Control System
An integral part of a complete PulseWorx Lighting Control System, this device uses the patented UPB powerline communication technology (invented by PCS) to reliably communicate with any other UPB-compatible devices over the existing house electrical wires. No new wires are necessary, thus making PulseWorx perfect for retrofit situations. When initial configuration is complete, a single push of a button is all you need to activate any group of lights (or virtually anything else that connects to AC power wiring) throughout the house simultaneously.
