Hubbell FXRoomControllerSeptember 11, 2020

Hubbell Control Solutions announced the release of the newly improved FX Room Controller, a vital component for room optimization and control in conjunction with the use of NX Distributed Intelligence™ System Devices.

The FX Room Controller is the first of its kind in the industry with a built-in time clock for scheduling capability of room controls without the need for additional network components or a central time server.

The new FX Room Controller is part of the NX Room Controller family and it fundamentally changes the architectural role of the controller and the ease of installation for electrical contractors and specifiers. Not only does the FX Room Controller expand the device support and capabilities through additional connections, the device is also equipped with built-in scheduling capabilities, and power metering, adding significant value in energy cost savings and run-time efficiency.

Ease of Installation

The FX Room Controller has all of the abilities of the previous NX Room Controller but it is significantly easier to configure and install for facility-wide lighting control.

The FX Room Controller reduces installation complexity through “plug and play installation” in which NX-enabled luminaires, occupancy sensors, daylight sensors, and other manual controls can be connected through SmartPORT™ technology, and optimized through self-configuration as the controller automatically recognizes the connected devices and assigns the room controls to a logical lighting sequence.

The FX Room Controller also offers the ability of NX Zone expansion through additional FX Port Functionality allowing up to 32 Room Controllers to be connected through the FX bus, effectively more than doubling the previous controller’s connective abilities.

Built-In Scheduling Capabilities

The FX Room Controller can be easily accessed and configured through the use of “NXBTC,” or an NX Digital Smart Sensor. The FX Room Controller also hosts a built-in time clock which allows devices to run scheduled events without the need of a central time server or gateway.

The FX Room Controller does this by separating the infrastructure into “Zones” wherein subsequent rooms are automated by the NX according to the system’s schedule. Similarly, the FX Room Controller can automate fixtures through a dimming interface based on the capabilities of the luminaires connected to the Room Controller on a schedule. 

Energy Savings

The FX Room Controller complies with energy code requirements including ASHRAE 90.1, IECC, and Title 24 regulations. Users can even track their power usage to better manage energy consumption using the NXAC and BACnet™.

All Happening Live: the Eplan Virtual Fair

Rittal and EplanLast year Eplan welcomed around 1,400 attendees from 73 countries to its international Virtual Fair. Impressive figures – and that in times before such virtual formats had become the standard almost everywhere. This year the interest in new, innovative Leadership Talks, practice-oriented webcasts and worldwide chats for talking shop with other users is likely to increase again.

This year’s Eplan Virtual Fair has a full sixteen-hour programme planned. This year marks the fifth edition of the global “trade show on the net”, which has enjoyed a continually growing number of visitors from all around the world. The fair will be broadcasting, presenting and chatting live from 6.00 am to 10.00 pm (CEST).

Safety Scanner or Safety Mat? How to Choose the Right Safeguarding Device.

 

Omron Safety ScannerYou've done your risk assessment, and now it's time to implement a risk reduction strategy using engineering control measures. Since physical barriers can be costly and impractical, many manufacturers opt for what are known as presence sensing devices, a category that includes technologies like safety light curtains, safety laser scanners, and safety mats.

Because they don’t physically prevent an operator from reaching the hazard zone, presence sensing devices only work for machines that can be stopped anywhere in their cycle. Each device must be positioned far enough away from the machine that it’s extremely unlikely for anyone to be able to reach the danger area after triggering the safety response.

Pandemic Creates New Job Roles and Fosters Automation Investment

Pandemic Job RolesBy Pat McGibbon, Chief Knowledge Officer, AMT

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” This observation was made by philosopher George Santayana in 1905, but can help manufacturers today avoid mistakes in responding to the impacts of the pandemic. History shows that there are two likely outcomes of the current crisis which relate to manufacturing.

First, automation and digital manufacturing technologies will expand sooner and faster than the manufacturing technology market as a whole over the next two years. Second, this growth spurt will lead to changes in the manufacturing workforce throughout the recovery.
