Espen Technology Releases Innovative Powerline Communication Dimming For 0-10V Fixtures & TLEDs

Espen Technology announced today that it is offering the VersaDim System, an innovative, comprehensive dimming and control system using PCLC powerline communication technology. Espen will be demonstrating the new system at LightFair International, Booth # 3867.

VersaDim is an easy and secure power line communication dimming system comprised of a controller and a receiver. In a typical installation, one controlled fixture needs one receiver. One controller can control many receivers on the same branch circuit. No separate signal wires are required, there are no compatibility issues common to standard wall dimmers, and the system is plug-and-play. VersaDim eliminates wireless security concerns; does not adversely affect power line quality (PF/THD); handles heavy loads up to 2,000 W without derating; and is capable of zone control.

PCLC (Powerline Communicated Load Control) is an emerging control technology that provides the important capability of wireless controls (avoiding separate signal wires) while eliminating the drawbacks of wireless - extra cost in commissioning, maintenance, and security issues.

According to John Clancy, SVP of Sales & Marketing at Espen, “The VersaDim system stands out as an innovative new smart lighting technology because it’s an elegant and simple approach in a world of rapidly increasing complexity. It combines the best benefits of wired and wireless dimming approaches.”
