Welight - UCA

Lighting Control Unit (LCU)

The Lighting Control Unit (LCU) is a device with a processing capacity and wireless communications (LORA/SIGFOX), which collects, analyses and stores data from the network analyser, sending them to the WeLight server via the GPRS module in the device itself.

In addition, the unit receives the programming for each of the days of the week from the WeLight server, storing it in the memory. Therefore, it is possible to configure both the on and off times as well as the operating modes for each interval.

Installed in each lighting control panel, the LCU manages the measurement equipment, the turning on and off of the lighting, communications with the server and also controls the additional elements in the electrical panel such as point-to-point control equipment, cable theft protection, flux regulators, door opening sensors, etc.

The LCU design is based on 2 CPUs to make it more robust for the lighting operation in the event of a fault. The high versatility of the equipment allows additional external input and output communication modules to be added.
Measuring 160 x 90 mm and weighing 350 g, the device also incorporates an assembly system on a 35 mm DIN-rail which facilitates and simplifies its installation, saving time and work.
