PCS PulseWorx UPB Output Control Module
Transmit & Receive Digital Commands & Status
The OCM Output Control Module is a high quality plug-in home automation isolated relay contact controller capable of transmitting and receiving digital commands and status over the existing powerlines.
The OCM is perfect for controlling Valves, Gates, Garage Doors, Gas fireplaces, Pumps, a large high voltage contactor and anything that is controlled by a relay.
Simply plug the OCM into any standard wall outlet and wire the device to the controlled relay. The OCM is designed in a white enclosure with two completely isolated Class 2 contacts rated at 8 Amps. A mounting tab is included at the top to be screwed into the receptacle for added security.
Receives From the Powerline
The OCM 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. Each channel of the OCM can be a member of up to 16 Links/Scenes with the capability to store a pre-set relay state (OPEN or CLOSE). Each pre-set state can easily be adjusted by the homeowner using the innovative PulseWorx manual programming method.
Transmits to the Powerline
Each channel output can be configured to transmit status changes and inform the rest of the network when the timed auto-off function has automatically turned each relay off. This allows the OCM to remotely control other devices or update indicators (LEDs on our keypads).
Easy To Configure
Like all PulseWorx devices, the OCM 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.
