Ex-Or adds web interface to lighting-control system
The addition of a web server to Ex-Or’s MLS Digital managed lighting system provides access via a web browser on a computer.
MLS Digital operates via a network of communicating detectors that constantly monitor presence and levels of ambient light to provide zoned lighting tailored to occupants’ needs
Ex-Or has always made much of the fact that MLS Digital does not need a central computer, so no overall breakdown is possible and there is no fiddling about matching up pre-addressed components on a computerised master plan.
The new interface adds to this functionality by providing additional tools for those who need them. A system is still commissioned using a hand-held programmer and its menu of programmable features. Settings can be uploaded to detectors (or downloaded for checking) just by pointing and clicking. Settings are changed in the same way.
The new interface gives a real-time display of current lighting status. The display shows where detectors are located and what zones have been set up, providing an overview of occupancy for every zone. The system can generate reports so that occupancy hours for each zone can be accumulated.
