Apprentice II Lighting Controller Panels

The Apprentice II programmable lighting control panel is an energy saving lighting controller. You can network up to 48 control points and 32 LightSync devices per network and connect via easy to use RJ-45 ports. Connect and program panels using a USB port on a laptop and our free Apprentice II software. Add-on cards are easy to install and and add the following capabilities: BACnet, LonWorks, N2, MODBUS, TCP/IP, or modem interface, DMX control and DTMF telephone switching.
