The LCS 2-X-2 is a computerized lighting control systems utilizing microprocessor technology. The LCS 2-X-2 offers effective control of the energy consumption in large and small buildings. The LCS 2-X-2 system is designed for standalone operation, which is programmed through the LCD display on the CPU Board for smaller applications and in a network for larger more complex applications.

The LCS 2-X-2 control system central component is the Relay Processing Panel (RPP). The RPP is capable of supporting 32 inputs (e.g., switches) and 32 relay drivers each capable of driving 2 relays. The output relay design accommodates Panasonic HID lighting relays. Inputs are powered by the RPP therefore, no external power is required.  The inputs accommodate contact closure devices such as switches and motion detectors. The LCS 2-X-2 product line includes momentary contact lighting switches. Each switch has a Dual color LED for on/off status, which is powered by the RPP.

The RPP is designed for flexibility in configuring the inputs and outputs. Output relays can be programmed separately or programmed to “follow” a relay. Inputs are programmable to control multiple output relays. As a network, all inputs and outputs are addressable and programmable from any RPP. Creating a seamless network of panels. Programming is accessible through an RPP (LCD Display), or a laptop plug-in, or a networked PC, or modem. This system’s features include an optional modem connection for off site control, monitoring and troubleshooting.

The scheduling function features a 9-day format. Days 1 to 7 are defined as Monday to Sunday and days 8 and 9 as Holiday schedules. Each day schedule can perform 10 “on” and 10 “off” commands. Every output relay has 9 day scheduling capability.

Scheduled “off” commands can activate a “flicker warning” feature. The “flicker warning” will alert the occupants that the lights are scheduled to turn off. This allows the occupants time to override the “off” command using a wall mounted switch. The zones controlled by the switch are fully programmable. The extended occupancy time can range from 1 minute to 2 hours.

Today we are all concerned with the energy we consume within our homes. But how many truly understand the ins and outs of home energy use, and where exactly does the electrician and the development of energy management systems come into play. There is much to consider when discussing home energy use. The consumer first off needs to be informed about energy use, how it is calculated and ultimately billed if they are to make changes to their energy consumption rates. But in terms of educating consumers does the residential electrician have a role? And beyond that are manufacturers developing products designed to help electricians and consumers better understand residential energy use? Throughout this article we will deal with each of these important questions.

Jeremy Herrington

Total Electrical Solutions was founded in 2013 by Jeremy Herrington in Quispamsis, on the outskirts of Saint John, New Brunswick. Since 2013 Jeremy has steadily grown Total Electrical Solutions in the residential, commercial and construction sectors. The growth is primarily the result of Jeremy’s customer first philosophy, plus his over 20 years of industry experience.

Jeremy grew up learning about the industry from his father who was an electrical contractor. Jeremy spent his early years helping and watching his father as a contractor and business owner. After high school Jeremy was, like many, not wholly aware of the course he wished to take and so he began an electrical apprenticeship at his father’s company.
