ETC expands Unison Paradigm line
Posted on Thursday, May 18th, 2017
ETC has expanded its Unison Paradigm line of architectural lighting controls, increasing lighting station options with the line of Inspire control stations and making it easier to comply with stringent energy requirements with the new Dual Tech sensors.
The powerful and elegant Inspire station, originally introduced in the Unison Echo product line, is now a member of the Paradigm family with an updated design and the full feature set of the Paradigm control system. Stations come in a range of styles and button configurations, which allow them to be a perfect match for any installation.
The Inspire stations can be easily programmed for pre-set lighting looks, zone control, space-combine functions or any other Paradigm control function. With one-, two-, four-, six-, and eight-button station options – as well as the four-button station with a fader coming late summer – the Inspire stations can be as tailored as the light itself. Laser marked button labels identify each button, and custom marked button caps are available to personalise any installation. The button caps are easily replaceable in the field if control needs change with ongoing use.
Each button features a colour-controllable LED backlight that offers a quick visual indicator of function and button state. And when it’s time to set looks, the Inspire fader station offers basic intensity control as well as intuitive colour control for hue, saturation, and intensity for colour mixing luminaires.
Contractors will appreciate the thought that went into making installation a snap. The stations are standard sizes and can easily be ganged together to fit into any control location required. Stations and faceplates are available in cream, grey, black, and white, ensuring a visual fit in any setting. Behind the scenes the stations use the LinkConnect two-wire, topology-free system to give installers the freedom to put stations where needed without worrying about wiring.
“They’ve been incredibly popular as the face of the Echo control line and now we are very excited to offer them as an additional control station option for our Paradigm line,” said Bryan Palmer, architectural market manager for ETC.
