Adjustable voltage level triggering, which switches fluorescent ballasts ON or OFF at a pre-set point in the dimming curve, can be used for switching the ballast’s power rail, in conjunction with the integral 1-10v converter card.

It can be configured to operate low level control loads such as intruder/fire alarms and AV equipment. Easily configurable features include comparison-switching, where switching only takes place when a logic level input from AV/air conditioning equipment doesn’t match the desired status.

The output can mimic a switch-press that requires a pulse contact closure of variable duration.
