The RAPIX eHub is a powerful DALI application controller. It is a part of the RAPIX Lighting Control System, and connects input peripherals to a DALI line.
The device includes four smart channel inputs for connecting to RAPIX eHub smart channel peripherals, and two additional input connections for occupancy sensors and / or dry contacts.
Peripherals are connected to the smart channel inputs. Available peripherals include an LCD switch, push-button and rotary switches, general dry-contact input, and expanders to allow dry-contact style movement sensors.
The eHub manages input peripheral power requirements, DALI communications, and provides extensive embedded logical functions for the connected switches and sensor peripherals.
An Ethernet connection allows integration with AV systems using a simple TCP/IP connection and the RAPIX API.
The eHub is a compact unit, and fits through a standard 90 mm downlight ceiling hole. It is suitable for locating in a ceiling void.
With firmware version 3, the RAPIX eHub supports up to 8 schedules. Each schedule can support an event to be run at a particular time, on one or more days of each week.
Schedules can also be enabled or disable over DALI.
For more complex schedules, a RAPIX Zone Controller is recommended.
The eHub supports plug-and-play for peripherals, so you can remove an LCD switch and connect a modular switch instead (or the other way around). The button functions will be exactly the same, with no need for re-configuration.
