Apprentice 3 Lighting Controller

Apprentice 3 Lighting Control Panel

Models: AP3-04, AP3-08, AP3-16, AP3-24, AP3-32

The Apprentice3 programmable lighting control panel is an energy saving lighting controller. You can network up to 48 control points and 64 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 Apprentice3 software. Add-on cards are easy to install and and add the following capabilities: BACnet, N2, MODBUS, TCP/IP, or modem interface, DMX control and DTMF telephone switching. Also optional remote mount 0-10V isolated dimming control modules for standard daylight harvesting operations.
