Blue Box LTD System

The Blue Box system is the 100% digital replacement for traditional time clocks, twist timers and contactor packages. Panels and switches daisy-chain together using Cat. 5 patch cable with RJ45 connectors in any sequence.
A photosensor input supporting the Blue Box outdoor photosensor is provided for controlling exterior lights. Ideal applications include small stand-alone systems such as: tenant improvement, specialty retailers and site lighting. Also used as a remote panel with the GR 2400™ system.
Features:

- 32-channel, 365-day/astronomical time clock. Large display (21 x 8 characters) acts as programming interface for the entire system. Non-volatile memory holds all programming indefinitely. Ten-year battery back-up for time-of-day

- Modem includes free lifetime factory programming

- Manual override of individual relays, zones or entire panel. 30 A Latching Relay allows default to NC (normally closed) or NO (normally open) on power failure. UL listed for 18,000 amp SCCR at 277v.

- Will operate with all GR 2400 accessories

- Available with 14 option contact closure inputs

- Link up to 16 digital devices via Cat. 5 patch cable with RJ45 connectors
Contactors and Twist-Timers:
   - Typical analog-based “star topology” requires more costly line voltage wiring

   - Override switches require extra components and wiring

   - Number of contacts on each contactor must be sized to keep zones under 5,000 ft.2

   - Schedule changes are expensive when they have to be done by a contractor

The Blue Box:
   - A single Master Panel can be used to control other Blue Box panels on the bus through the DTC

   - Input for a photocell and override switches for greater connectivity

   - Meets all the new local energy code requirements for indoor or outdoor lighting

   - Typically costs at least 20% less to install than lighting contactors and timers

Easy to Use
Easy to Specify: Based on many successful designs, LC&D has put together several integrated lighting control solutions for a number of design applications (such as schools, and specialty-retail projects) that are proven effective. We’re dedicated to putting our extensive lighting control experience to our customer’s advantage! 
Ease of Installation: One of the biggest benefits of specifying digital controls is that most line voltage wiring is eliminated and replaced with less-costly Cat. 5 cables. Not only does this save money on materials – Since the low voltage cabling is connected via RJ45 connectors, installation is a snap! 
Customer Support: Another huge benefit of our digital lighting controls is that systems equipped with a modem are accessible over the Internet. This allows LC&D technicians to dial into your lighting controls to:
   - Verify that design intent is accomplished through remote commissioning
   - Troubleshoot to assure that systems operate as intended
   - Run reports to validate system performance
   - Change on/off schedules as needed
