Cooper Controls' iLight brand will debut two new ranges of advanced lighting control panels at the forthcoming Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) show in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, in February 2009. Known as Revio and Ineo, these new control panel ranges combine good looking high tech design with intuitive ergonomic layouts for simple operation.
Revio is the company's new premier range featuring touch pad control and is unlike any other lighting control panel available today. Good layout resulting from extensive ergonomic research instantly leads users to simply press the on / off button or touch the surface of the panel to select the scene or zone they want to control. This is much easier than having to navigate through traditional panels with many buttons of the same size and shape. Obviously, twisting the rotary knob raises or lowers the light levels accordingly.
Users appreciate the easily identifiable power button, softly illuminated when off, so they can always find the light controls even in a darkened room. The light icon, rotary control, and liquid glass-styled touch pads are complemented with a customisable label insert. Installers may easily present button labels in any language or graphic. Also, unlike single zone rotary controls, Revio rotary dimmer controls can take control of multiple zones of lights in any area.
Despite its power, the Revio is the only lighting control simple user interface enough to deliver a full range of control features within a single gang back box.
Ineo is the second new iLight range of control panels being showcased by Cooper Controls, and again sets new standards with its simple ergonomic layout. A large circular on / off button is presented within a configurable button module with up to 10 different configurations using large or small button options. All buttons have backlit indicator lights and provide strong tactile feedback. The panels may even be ganged together to meet particular project requirements.
Revio and Ineo panels can be incorporated into any iLight Control system, creating new standards of user simplicity and convenience with no loss of capability
Cooper Controls will be on Stand 1K63 at Integrated Systems Europe, which takes place in Amsterdam on 3 - 5 February 2009.
