LightSpace® Manager 2 - Intelligent Digital Dimmer with DMX and IR Receiver for ActiveLED® Lighting Systems

  • LightSpace® Manager 2, Low DC Voltage and very low power consumption intelligent appliance that combines:
    • light switch (on / off / auto)
    • digital dimmer
    • motion / occupancy sensor
    • IR (InfraRed) Receiver
    • DMX - RS485 - 250 kbps

  • Controls one or many ActiveLED® lighting fixtures with precise digital dimming of the perceived light level from 0 to 100% in 2% increments

  • Implement a digitally manageable ActiveLED occupancy zone / lighting network (up to 8 LSM2 devices may be daisy-chained per Power Supply or LSC)
    For special applications in board rooms or Training Facilities, the LSM2 can be remotely operated using the optional hand-held remote IR controller or a USB to IR converter for control from a laptop or PC.

  • The number of LED lights that can be controlled from one LightSpace Manager 2 is virtually limitless (up to 999) - each interconnected ActiveLED fixture /power supply relays the Manager signals to the next fixture in the chain

  • Each LightSpace Manager 2 is powered by the single ActiveLED lighting fixture to which it is directly connected

  • Standard 6-wire "flat ribbon" or UTP cable connection to an ActiveLED power supply using RJ-12 male connectors

  • Standard RJ-11 / RJ12 (4-wire) "flat ribbon" interconnects each ActiveLED lighting fixture providing a lighting network / occupancy zone of controllable lights

  • Satisfies the occupancy zone requirements of 2006 IECC

LightSpace® Manager 2 - DMX enabled, intelligent Digital Dimmer for ActiveLED® Lighting Systems

Uses Smart Technology to combine the capabilities of a light switch, dimmer, occupancy sensor and remote IR receiver into a single appliance - applicable on a fixture-by-fixture basis or across an ActiveLED® occupancy zone / lighting "network"

LightSpace® Manager 2 is designed to be connected to an ActiveLED® Series EDSaP manageable power supply / driver. One LSM2-MI-DMX can digitally control one or many (up to 999) ActiveLED lighting fixtures, allowing the adjustment of light levels and occupancy sensing to suit occupancy needs while saving significant amounts of energy. The built-in IR receiver provides the ability to remotely operate the LSM up to 50 feet away using a hand-held IR remote controller.

ActiveLED lights connected to an LSM2-DMX device, in the absence of a DMX Signal, can be independently controlled by the LSM2. When a DMX signal arrives for the pre-programmed channel, the LSM2 will take on the level(s) received through the RS-485 DMX connection. DMX signals override the local setting and put the LSM2 into DMX mode unless the LSM2 has been set up to ignore DMX input.

A group of controlled ActiveLED light fixtures can be interconnected to form an occupancy zone / lighting "network".

ActiveLED® Occupancy Zone / Lighting Network

Up to 999 ActiveLED lighting fixtures in a zone can be controlled from a single LightSpace Manager.
LSM2-MI-DMX is connected to the digital input of one ActiveLED lighting fixture using an inexpensive 6-wire cable terminated with 6-pin RJ-12 connectors.

Each interconnected LED fixture / power supply relays the LSM2-MI-DMX settings to the next connected fixture via a 4-wire RJ11 / RJ12 communications cable, giving unlimited flexibility in managing a defined ActiveLED lighting occupancy zone or lighting network.

The following diagram is one example of a building or room with three entrances and three LightSpace Manager 2 appliances controlling a lighting network or occupancy zone.

Depending upon the size and shape of the defined space and the number of entry and exit points, one LSM2-MI can be combined with up to 10 (ten) separate motion / occupancy sensors in designing the occupancy zone to provide maximum energy savings. The perceived light level can be precisely adjusted from 0 (off) to 100% in 2% increments to suit the particular requirements of the occupancy zone.

LightSpace® Manager 2 Programmability

The LSM2-MI is programmable to meet most lighting requirements via its easy-to-use user interface.
Light levels (dimming) can be programmed to suit local preferences in 2% increments, from 0 (off) to 100% (fully on).
The triggering of the occupancy sensor can be programmed in one minute increments from 1 to 540 minutes (9 hours), after which time it will dim the lights down to 50%.
The sensor can then be programmed in one minute increments to further reduce the lighting to zero, or a pre-defined low lighting level, after an additional 1 to 540 minutes. The Motion Sensor built into each ActiveLED LSM2-MI-DMX has a range of 35 feet in a cone that is 50° from the perpendicular (100° total cone).

LightSpace® Manager 2 - IR Operating Modes

The LSM2-MI-DMX has three selectable modes of operation:

Auto Enables both the Dimmer and Motion Sensor “automatic” functionality and the attached ActiveLED light fixtures will be managed by the LSM2-MI-DMX.
On Puts the LSM2-MI-DMX into "On" or "Manual" mode and enables the Dimming up and down feature but disables the Motion Sensor.
Off Turns the attached Ringdale ActiveLED lights off (or down to the configured light level) and disables the Motion Sensor, while the background of the LSM2-MI-DMX is lit to facilitate locating it in low ambient light levels.

In applications where the LSM2-MI-DMX needs to be operated remotely - for example from a podium across the room from the LSM2-MI-DMX, or where the LSM2-MI-DMX is installed out of reach of unauthorized users - all of the above described operations can be remotely managed via the built-in IR Receiver from a hand-held remote control, in much the same way as a home theater is operated from a remote IR control (remote IR controller sold separately).
