  • Optional LightMaster Pro Windows software

Comprehensive User Guide

  • The ILC Apprentice includes a USER Guide, which includes all standard documentation required for basic stand alone applications

Relay Groups

  • Relays may be assigned to any of 48 available groups or presets
  • Relay groups may be assigned to multiple Timers, Switch Inputs, and

Open/Close Times

  • Lighting Control Schedules may adjust based on business (retail) Open/Close hours for easy adjustment when operating hours fluctuate
  • Seven standard Open/Close times and 365 custom daily Open/Close times available
  • Scheduled event may be programmed to occur before, after or at Open/Close times

Relay Functions

  • Each relay may be programmed for ON only, OFF only or ON/OFF control
  • Pulsed output for control of external devices such as lighting contactors or other systems
  • HID multilevel control (specialized output control for multilevel HID ballasts including warm-up sequence)

Switch Types

  • The ILC Apprentice may be programmed to accept virtually any type of switch input, momentary or maintained
  • Easy direct connection to motion and photo sensing devices via dry contact input
  • Override inputs can enable or disable any relay or group of relays
  • Input disable based on time of day

Switch Input to Relay Output Mapping

  • All switch to relay settings are completely soft, requiring no field rewiring when changes are required
  • Any switch can control any combination of 1 to 48 relays

Automatic Power-Up Settings

  • Relays may be programmed to automatically return to ON, OFF or remaining in the state they were in prior to the outage

After Hours Sweeps

  • Individual relay or groups of relays may be programmed to be swept OFF during non-operational hours

Daylight Saving Time Adjustment

  • Automatic adjustment for daylight saving changes (may be enabled or disabled from keypad or software)

Astronomical Clock

  • Automatic calculation of Sunrise and Sunset based on date and geographic position
  • Scheduled events may be programmed to occur before, after or on an astro event

Blink Alert
