Simmtronic, an independent specialist manufacturer of fully intelligent lighting control systems, today announce an elegant full colour touch screen with a single integrated interface to Simmtronic lighting controls, blind systems and temperature control functions.
Continuing to invest in the development of innovative products, the Simmtronic Development Team has paid close attention to creating a clear and straightforward interface thereby enabling users to control lighting, blinds and room temperature effortlessly from a single product. At early stages in development, client engagement has ensured that the SPS.20 solves problems and meets the needs of the market. With the SPS.20, designers can reduce the number of interface device needed to control room functions, reducing overall component count for an installation.
The SPS.20 provides a single clean and efficient user interface carefully refined to meet the needs of a commercial environment which may have flexible working spaces. The presentation to users is refined and uncluttered with programmable features hidden from view.
“In-house designed injection moulded parts and a glass fronted touch screen are combined with other proven technologies to create a high-quality attractive product. Say goodbye to wall clutter and confusing interfaces and welcome in a new dawn for control technology,” says Simmtronic Hardware Lead Engineer, Phil Knowles.
The touch screen provides full featured scene programmability over many channels and up to 16 scenes. A balance is achieved by assigning eight scenes to be formally defined lighting levels within the Simmtronic SPM Manager and the remaining eight scenes to be locally programmed to user preference as required. The device features a 30,000-hour screen and solid state capacitors. To ensure screen brightness is maintained over many years, after use, the switch will enter a screen saver mode running at reduced brightness and awake to full brightness as soon as the screen is pressed. The Full colour LED provides status indication.
“We as a supplier are starting to see the Construction Industry pushing harder towards developing Smart Technologies and reducing its carbon footprint. With this demand in mind, the SPS.20 allows end users to integrate other buildings systems, such as temperature and blind control, into one slick device. The Switch Plate takes a positive step forward in reducing a building’s carbon footprint with less interfaces now required to control multiple building services,” says Simmtronic Specification Engineer, Tomas Frenzel.
