LiteTouch plans to debut its new Central Control Unit (CCU) technology at CEDIA EXPO next week.
New technology will be applied to the company’s flagship controller, the LiteTouch FIVEk CCU, as well as to a new CCU, the LiteTouch kORE, aimed at fulfilling the needs of smaller sized projects.
The new kORE CCU has many of the advanced features of the FIVEk CCU, but designed to accommodate small-scale projects.
LiteTouch kORE CCU Feature Highlights:
• Small Specialty-Wired Project Solution: The kORE CCU communicates with up to 128 low-voltage keypads and a maximum of 128 LiteTouch Control Modules.
• Wireless-Enabled: Optional Built-in Wireless Technology allows the kORE CCU to instantly communicate with up to 64 Hybrid Wall Box Dimmers or Lamp Modules. Remote Base Antennas can be added for a maximum of 256 Hybrid Units set to wireless mode.
• CCU System Interface: System adjustments can be made from the face of the unit, including timer adjustments, scene and other programming adjustments. Visual system diagnostics and built-in trouble shooting tools will also make this new CCU a dealer favorite.
• Lifetime Support Guarantee: True to LiteTouch’s backwards-compatible development philosophy, the new kORE CCU will be able to be installed into existing LiteTouch Systems when upgraded functionality is desired, including ethernet integration, complex programming, and wireless compatibility.
• Programmed with LiteWare4 Software: Utilizes the power of LiteWare4 programming and system design software, programming like other LiteTouch CCUs. No new software to learn.
To incorporate dealer product feedback, LiteTouch will begin soliciting its dealers to be part of an extended beta program, beginning fourth quarter 2010.
