There are three installation types for the Amatis Advanced Load Controller.
Option 1: Per Fixture Control
Per fixture control allows more customization, compared to groupings of fixtures that provide a maximum return on investment.
|Maximum customizability, grouping, data, capability, and flexibility||Highest Amatis material cost|
|No circuitry limitations or labor estimation risk|
Option 2: Convenient Zone Control
Convenient Zone Control is when the pre-existing circuitry does not need to be modified to accommodate the newly proposed lighting zones.
|Minimal Amatis material cost||Controlled zone is defined by current circuitry which may not be ideal|
|Primary labor effort limited to low voltage 0-10V||Re-zoning not possible|
|Minimal labor effort if no 0-10V dimming required|
Option 3: Inconvenient Zone Control
Inconvenient Zone Control is when the circuit needs to be broken and re-established by connecting necessary fixtures and running unswitched power to the start of each zone.
|Minimal Amatis material cost (same as option 2)||Complete overhaul of existing circuitry = maximum labor required|
|Re-zoning not possible|
- Designing controls into a space is often a balance between material and labor costs
- Saving material costs is possible, but be sure to understand the labor impact first
- Per-fixture controls offers the most flexibility with the lowest labor risk
