The Crestron IPAC is a 2-Series control processor designed for wall mount installation. Its front panel controls and LCD display deliver a user-friendly interface for out-of-the-box system setup. Built-in Ethernet, Cresnet, RS-232, relay, and sensor inputs provide direct connectivity for interfacing with all kinds of devices, controls, and networks. The onboard e-Control® Web server allows for complete integration as part of a facility-wide managed control network.
Out-of-the-Box Lighting Control
The GL1 version of IPAC comes preconfigured for use as the central control processor for a Green Light Power Switching system. Right out of the box, the IPAC-GL1 affords easy setup and programming for a complete switching system consisting of:
Up to 210 switched loads
CNX-B, C2N-DB, and Cameo keypads
41 occupancy sensors and photosensors
100 time clock events
Keypads with as many as 12 buttons each can be programmed easily to control lighting loads and other functions. As well, the seven function buttons on the front panel of the IPAC-GL1 may also be programmed. Custom backlit labeling of the front panel buttons is facilitated using an assortment of pre-printed labels or Crestron Engraver software.
Lights can be programmed to turn on and off automatically using the built-in astronomical time clock feature. Lighting events may be programmed to occur at specific times or at an offset from sunrise or sunset. Occupancy sensors and photosensors may also be implemented to enable automatic on/off lighting control based on room occupancy and ambient light levels.
With additional custom programming, the IPAC-GL1 can support virtually any functionality imaginable. It works seamlessly with Crestron's entire line of touchpanels, wireless remotes, lighting dimmers, shade controllers, thermostats, and more. It can also interface with third-party devices and systems such as security and access controls, surveillance cameras, and HVAC for a fully integrated solution. Contact Crestron Sales Support Services for more information.
The IPAC-GL1 is designed to be mounted in a standard 3-gang electrical box independent of the lighting panels, allowing it to be installed wherever it is most advantageous for the project.
