PCS PulseWorx UPB Plug-In Dimmable Lamp Module, 400W
1-Channel, 400Watt Lamp Module
The PulseWorx UPB Plug-In Lamp Module (400W) is a high quality plug-in home automation lamp dimmer that is capable of transmitting and receiving digital commands and status over the existing powerlines.
- Controls 120VAC plug-in lamps up to 400 Watts
- Supports incandescent, LED, fluorescent or magnetic low voltage loads
- Pass-through outlet powers devices that do not require UPB control
- Programmable auto-off timer up to 120 minutes
- Pre-programmed with 7 lighting scenes
Simply plug the LM1 into any standard wall outlet and plug the lamp into the LM1's bottom controlled outlet. The LM1 is white in color and designed for controlling incandescent, LED, fluorescent or magnetic low voltage loads and provide as much as 400W of power to the lamp(s). The dimmer function can also be disabled, turning the outlets into a switch, to allow the LM1 to turn on and off non-dimmable loads such as fans or radios. A pass-through outlet allows plugging in vacuums, computers, and other devices that do not require remote control.
Receives From the Powerline
The LM1 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. The LM1 can be a member of up to 16 Links/scenes with the capability to store a pre-set level from 0 to 100% and one of 16 fade rates (Snap to 1 Hour) for each scene. Each pre-set light level can easily be adjusted by the homeowner using the innovative PulseWorx manual programming method.
Lamp Switch Triggers
Lamp switch trigger circuits allow the LM1 to turn on the lamp when its local on/off switch is opened and then closed. This is a great feature for reading lamps when you don't want to have to find a controller to turn your lamp on.
Transmits To the Powerline
The LM1 can be configured to transmit status changes and inform the rest of the network when its lamp switch trigger has turned the lamp on or off. This allows the LM1 to remotely control other devices or update indicators (LEDs on our keypads).
Easy To Configure
Like all PulseWorx devices, the LM1 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.
