CAEN-MLO Automation Enclosure

Crestron has integrated advanced dimming controls with Eaton® breaker panels to deliver a highly efficient and easy-to-install automation enclosure for any home or business. With the CAEN-MLO Automation Enclosure, lighting controls are no longer separated from the breaker panel, which streamlines installation, troubleshooting and ongoing maintenance of the lighting system. The built-in LED diagnostic feature helps electricians pinpoint the cause of a trip; integrated breakers enable easy disconnection of individual loads or entire modules. And with its space saving design, the enclosure fits where you need it while supporting up to 80 controlled circuits. When combined with Crestron dimmer modules, the Eaton AFCI breakers can handle 2000W of dimmed load without nuisance breaker tripping, which is twice the previous industry standard. As a result, you need fewer breakers and fewer control modules to configure your system, reducing costs on parts and labor. With three sizes available, the largest CAEN-MLO enclosure houses up to 20 breakers, the smallest houses six breakers. The CAEN-MLO uses breakers with a clip-on neutral, greatly reducing wiring clutter and labor. And only Crestron will configure a lighting automation panel to ship with Eaton AFCI breakers pre-installed. Any CAEN-MLO automation enclosure can also be equipped with a complete Crestron automation control system, integrating dimming controls and switches with shading controls, climate controls, remote sensors, keypads and touch screen controllers throughout the building.

Green Light® Dimmable LED Drivers

Crestron Green Light® Dimmable LED Drivers (GLD-LED) support both DALI® and 0-10V control protocols to deliver new levels of performance, flexibility and cost-savings for virtually any home lighting control system. Superior, High-Power Dimming — Employing a combination of duty-cycle and current dimming technologies, Green Light LED drivers provide smooth, deep dimming with excellent color stability to 0.1%. A choice of 50W and 100W models affords high-power capability for use with a wide range of LED fixtures. Fine tuned control With the GLD-LED featuring the DALI® control protocol, Crestron underscores its commitment to open standards technology to give homeowners total freedom in their lighting designs. DALI® models are available in either single or 2-channel configurations and two-way communication enables independent control and monitoring of each individual fixture. It gives you granular control of each fixture on the network, allowing you to design pre-set lighting styles, maximize daylight harvesting, or adjust ambience through tunable white light applications. GLD-LED models utilizing 0-10V control technology deliver high-quality, single-channel dimming, and are compatible with both current sink and current source controls. Cost-effective performance For fixtures featuring direct and indirect lighting strategies, such as those found media rooms, the independent output channel control capability available in a single GLD-LED driver reduces the LED driver requirement by half, saving homeowners costs on both parts and installation.

Digital QMT™ Shade Motor

Crestron enhances home shading controls with a compact, yet powerful new solution for any exposure. The new Digital QMT™ Shade Motor™ delivers highly energy-efficient and quiet operation of window shades of any size. The Digital QMT features the first brushless motor design for shades, which translates into greater reliability, much longer life, smoother operation, and ultra-quiet operation in the home. Plus it eliminates the carbon dust generated by motors utilizing brushes. But going brushless does not diminish power. To the contrary, the Digital QMT provides more torque in a smaller package than any other shade motor. This reduces power consumption while enabling it to be paired with shades ranging from just 17-inches to over 10-feet wide, with no difference in operating noise and performance. No other shade motor can fit into such narrow windows. Both wired and wireless models are available and provide users with an unprecedented level of precision thanks to Variable Speed Control (VSC) settings that adjust shades speeds in 1/10th RPM increments. The Digital QMT integrates seamlessly into the complete Crestron home automation ecosystem, allowing homeowners to adjust their shades, lighting, audio, video, temperature, door locks and more from any device they choose, including touch screens, iPads®, or their smartphone.
