The panels make it possible for LynTec customers to add more circuits in the same horizontal wall space to control a greater number of components, as needed. Taking advantage of a change in the National Electrical Code, the RPC panels support 48, 66, and 84 circuit breaker positions. Previously, RPC panels were available only with 30 or 42 circuit breaker slots. Customers have incremental options between the 30- and 84-position panels with no increase in width. All RPC panels leverage the RPC controller’s ability to address up to 168 motorized circuit breakers. The new panels are also available as main lug only (MLO) and main circuit breaker (MCB) in 225, 400, and 600-amp interiors.
Also new to the RPC family of control panels is the capability to add dimming control. This new feature is being demonstrated for the first time at LDI 2016. LynTec has combined breaker/relay switching with 0-10VDC dimming in a single RPC panel for DMX512 or streaming ACN (E1.31, sACN). This now allows analog low-voltage dimming and power on/off switching for each controlled individual DMX or sACN channel and line voltage circuit. Up to 64 0-10VDC dimming positions can be combined in a breaker or relay panel. The new feature and hardware seamlessly work together through LynTec’s popular and easy-to-use built-in web server.
