ETC launches Dual Tech Sensors and Contact Interfaces for Unison Echo line
Date Posted: 5/4/2017
ETC released two new additions to their Unison Echo® line of architectural lighting control. The new Dual Tech Sensors ensure spaces can adhere to stringent energy codes, while also ensuring occupant comfort. And two Contact Interface devices provide simple and seamless integration with other
systems. 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.
Dual Tech Sensors
For locations where no movement doesn’t mean a space is vacant, the new Dual Tech sensors offer a convenient and reliable way to make sure illumination is constant. Dual Tech sensors couple passive infrared (PIR) detection with acoustic detection and can support almost any room size or configuration. Available
in wall, ceiling and switch mount configurations, with a range of finish options, the Echo Dual Tech sensors offer different models for Occupancy or Vacancy, meeting energy codes without the need for advanced configuration. The Dual Tech sensor features a walk test
function to confirm coverage, supports small movement detection up to 45-feet, and includes coverage patterns for most applications. They are UL Listed and CE marked, and meet ASHRAE 90.1, IECC, and CA Title 24 codes.

System integration is simple with the new Echo Contact Interfaces. Available in 4-input and 4-output versions, Contact Interfaces seamlessly join Echo systems to third-party, external control systems. The Echo Contact Input Interface (ECII) can receive
wet or dry contacts and uses the closure to activate actions in your Echo control system. Anything from a basic toggle switch all the way up to an advanced enterprise A/V systems can trigger the Contact Input Interface. And with the EchoAccess® mobile app users can
program the system for any Echo control action.
The Echo Contact Output Interface (ECOI) supplies contact triggers to external systems. A contact output can be generated as part of any preset or zone control to automatically trigger an external system, including functions like powering on a projector or deploying
shades. Additionally, the Echo Contact Output Interface can send a contact to third-party management programs, keeping enterprise-wide systems updated of the lighting system status. Both Echo Contact Interfaces connect your Echo system to larger installations, bringing
custom actions and high-level integration to a budget-friendly system.
