AN INTUITIVE iPAD BASED LIGHTING CONTROL SYSTEM

Remote Controlled Lighting (RCL) has been at the forefront of developing technology for the architectural lighting industry since 2001. RCL’s motorised luminaires have transformed lighting control in over 1000 luxury hotel ballrooms and numerous museum, gallery and retail projects worldwide. RCL has used its 18 years of experience and expertise to create RCL Control, our brand-new lighting control system which simplifies complex motorised lighting schemes into one easy-to-use system, capable of operating across multiple rooms and even multiple floors. RCL’s latest luminaires feature the ability to manipulate beam width, colour temperature and motorised positioning, giving ultimate flexibility no matter the application.

RCL Control has been designed to reflect the real time nature of lighting control; the system uses a dynamic reconfiguring wireless mesh network, constantly self-optimising to maintain signal reliability. The Thread mesh network provides longer range coverage with excellent scalability, but without compromising on latency, the reaction speed between command and action, meaning there is almost no limit to the size or shape of a project. RCL Control is highly resilient to any security threat as it does not require any internet services and uses the latest in wireless device security, along with a unique and secure authentication system.

Users can easily organise and navigate complex lighting schemes thanks to the intuitive user interface. Live on-screen feedback ensures that luminaire adjustment is simple, intuitive and responsive. Perfect for large scale applications, RCL Control allows the user to create ‘Zones’, ‘Light plans’, Groups and Scenes (pre-saved light settings) to organise hundreds of luminaires across multiple rooms and floors. This tiered set-up allows users to easily navigate complex lighting schemes and control individual or multiple luminaires at once.

Controlling and manipulating light has never been so easy. Users position their luminaires directly onto ‘light plans’ for quick and easy selection and adjustability, putting complete control into their hands. RCL Control allows users to import professional lighting schematics, or even take photos of room layouts instantly with the iPad camera, offering simple and highly versatile commissioning of lighting schemes.

RCL Control offers multiple levels of control, ranging from group fixture manipulation to fine tuning individual luminaires. Motorised pan and tilt positioning can be controlled either together through the joystick interface for rapid positioning, or individually via the precision control dials, allowing adjustments in minute increments for incredible accuracy. Along with high resolution positioning, RCL Control provides user friendly beam manipulation of colour temperature and beam width, delivering truly customisable lighting at the user’s fingertips.

RCL Control has the ability to integrate into existing DALI control systems, transmitting external commands from the master building control system, and allowing saved Scenes, inclusive of motorised positioning and full beam manipulation, to be configured for and recalled by DALI Scene panels, providing yet another level of control and flexibility.
