Crestron recently introduced its CLS-EXP line of lighting expansion modules. Providing integrators with an added level of versatility when integrating Crestron dimmers and lighting solutions, the CLS-EXP modules enable the Crestron iLux™ integrated lighting system and other Crestron lighting dimmers to handle more load types, a wider range of voltages, and larger loads.
The CLS-EXP line features four new models that are now available. The CLS-EXP-DIM model allows each output channel of the iLux system to dim a fully loaded circuit of incandescent, magnetic low-voltage, neon/cold cathode, or dimmable 2-wire fluorescent lighting loads up to 16 Amps. Residential integrators will welcome the CLS-EXP-DIMU Universal Dimmer model, which supports electronic low voltage (ELV) commonly found in recessed lighting. Additional models support 3 and 4-wire dimmable fluorescents, as well as switching for non-dimmable lighting and motors.
CLS-EXP modules support a wider range of voltages, from 120 to 277 Volts. Also, with the ability to support a greater number of loads, CLS-EXP modules enable integrators to add up to five expansion modules to each iLux output for a maximum of 80 Amps per zone. iLux units feature six independent outputs and can support up to 8 additional units, expanding a system to 54 lighting zones.
CLS-EXP modules work with iLux integrated lighting systems, CLW-Series in-wall dimmers and select CLX-Series lighting control modules. Easy to install, CLS-EXP modules connect to the output of the controlling dimmer just like a light fixture. Each model can be quickly wall mounted and include conduit knockouts on the bottom and lower sides.
