An-10 - Features and Functionality
- Wireless signals can pass through walls, floors and ceilings, so you can position switches and detectors exactly where you need them.
- No need to run costly control wires between devices or back to a central controller.
- Reduces installation times and minimizes disruption, making it an ideal solution for retrofit and new builds alike.
- Easier to meet building regulations and today’s demands for greater energy efficiency.
- Ideal for historic and listed buildings where disturbing the building fabric is difficult or impossible.
System functionality is achieved by programming, not hard wiring, making it incredibly easy to design the operation of your lighting control system. If you need to reorganize your living or working space, simply move and/or reprogram devices for the new layout. There is a particular useful for open-plan environments.
Adding extra devices is simple. No additional control wiring is required; simply install the extra device, program it into the system and you are ready to go.
As well as being competitively priced, the mySmart An-10 system offers considerable savings over conventional wireless lighting control systems, whilst providing a highly cost effective alternative to conventional wired systems.
The An-10 wireless range achieves significant reductions in total system cost through cheaper installation. An-10 allows for a system to be expanded simply and cost-effectively.
Safe and Dependale
Wireless technology is already in common usage around many homes and workplaces and has proven to be safe, dependable and in virtually all cases no less reliable than their wired counterparts. An-10 meets all required Australian and European standards and operates on operates on an Australian Communications and Media Authority approved frequency of 915MHz.
mySmart An-10 uses a unique ‘hybrid mesh’ network topology, together with a communication protocol that has been specifically designed to meet the needs of lighting control. Control messages are routed only to specific devices according to the needs of the system. Compared to other wireless lighting systems, An-10 significantly reduces the amount of data traffic generated resulting in faster and more efficient operation.
Furthermore, An-10 makes multiple attempts to deliver a control message. The ability to redicrect control messages in different ways around the network gives An-10 exceptional immunity to transient conditions such as interference from other RF systems.
Flexible, Independent Device Addressing
Every mySmart An-10 device within a system uses a number of different address codes that identify its place within that system and how it interacts with other devices.
A Building Code is used to identify devices that form part of the same overall system. This allows An-10 systems in adjacent buildings to be completely independent and prevents cross-system interference.
A Local Code typically defines all devices in a specific location. For example, the switch plates, sensors and dimmers in one room may all share the same Local Code so that only the devices in that room are controlled and do not affect, or are affected by, devices in other rooms. An optional Sub Local Code can also be used to further subdivide devices within a room if required.
One or more Area Codes will allow common control across multiple locations. Typical applications of Area Codes include ‘corridor hold’ schemes.
Scene Selection Functionality
Scene selection allows the recall of pre-programmed lighting levels to create different moods or to suit different uses within an environment. A scene is a selection of circuits that are set to individual lighting levels and stored. They can then be invoked by a switch connected to the An-10 input unit or the presence detector detecting a person.
For example, in a meeting room you may just want one scene that sets all lights at maximum level for meetings, but another scene that sets the individual circuits to different levels for presentations. An-10 allows up to 20 local scenes and up to 120 area scenes that can be easily programmed via infrared handsets.
