ETC launches Unison Paradigm Inspire control stations and Dual Tech sensors

Paradigm Inspire Stations

ETC expanded their Unison Paradigm® line of architectural lighting controls, increasing lighting station options with the line of Inspire® control stations and making it easier to comply with stringent energy requirements with the new Dual Tech sensors. Visitors at the 2017 LIGHTFAIR International tradeshow, May 9th-11thin Philadelphia, can find these new products and the rest of ETC’s extensive architectural lighting options in Booth 525. 

Inspire Control Stations

The powerful and elegant Inspire station, originally introduced in the Unison Echo® product line, is now a member of the Paradigm family with an updated design and the full feature set of the Paradigm control system. Stations come in a range of styles and button configurations, which allow them to be a perfect match for any installation. 

The Inspire stations can be easily programmed for preset lighting looks, zone control, space-combine functions or any other Paradigm control function. With one-, two-, four-, six-, and eight-button station options—as well as the four-button station with a fader coming late summer—the Inspire stations can be as tailored as the light itself. Laser marked button labels identify each button, and custom marked button caps are available to personalize any installation. The button caps are easily replaceable in the field if control needs change with ongoing use. 

Each button features a color-controllable LED backlight that offers a quick visual indicator of function and button state. And when it’s time to set looks, the Inspire fader station offers basic intensity control as well as intuitive color control for hue, saturation, and intensity for color mixing luminaires.

Contractors will appreciate the thought that went into making installation a snap. The stations are standard sizes and can easily be ganged together to fit into any control location required. Stations and faceplates are available in cream, gray, black, and white, ensuring a visual fit in any setting. Behind the scenes the stations use the LinkConnect two-wire, topology-free system to give installers the freedom to put stations where needed without worrying about wiring. 

“They’ve been incredibly popular as the face of the Echo control line and now we are very excited to offer them as an additional control station option for our Paradigm line,” said Bryan Palmer, architectural market manager for ETC.

The Paradigm Inspire button stations will be available at the end of April, with the four-button fader station available in early summer.

Paradigm Dual Tech Sensor Family

Paradigm Dual Tech Occupancy and Vacancy Sensors

ETC’s new Dual Tech Occupancy/Vacancy Sensors are designed for restrooms, privacy rooms and other areas where a lack of movement doesn’t necessarily mean a space is unoccupied. The Dual Tech sensors take their name from the fact that they couple passive infrared (PIR) detection with acoustic detection technology, ensuring lights stay on when needed and turn off when they’re not. 

Spaces of any size are supported by the new Dual Tech sensors, with multiple mounting options including ceiling-, wall-, and switch-mounted configurations. More installation customizations include the option to program either Occupancy or Vacancy mode during commissioning, multiple coverage options—with a walk test function to confirm coverage—and multiple finish options. Dual Tech Sensors meet ASHRAE 90.1, IECC, and CA Title 24 codes, keeping occupants comfortable while complying with current energy regulations. They are also UL listed and CE marked.
