Mobile, AL–CentraLite Systems Elegance and LiteJet System now supports PCS’s Universal Powerline Bus (UPB) devices in both the Elegance and LiteJet Programming Software.
Both CentraLites Elegance and LiteJet Systems combine digital dimming, whole home lighting management and scene lighting with the reliability of a hard-wired system. CentraLite officials further stated that by adding support for UPB, PCSs powerline technology, customers of Centralites lighting control systems can now expand and add-on to their current lighting installations.
“To date, we have avoided supporting powerline technologies, because they are inherently unreliable,” said Jimmy Busby, CTO of CentraLite. “We have chosen to add support for PCS UPB technology to both our Elegance and LiteJet Systems because we have found it to be the only powerline protocol that meets our rigid reliability standards.”
“By adding support for UPB, CentraLite Systems customers now have the option to expand the functionality of their current lighting system without compromising on the quality and reliability that theyve come to expect with a hardwired installation,” said Stan Mann, PCS’ chief operating officer. “With the addition of CentraLite Systems to our list of supporters, UPB is now the undisputed reliable technology of choice for powerline communications.”
Support for UPB is available now for current CentraLite Elegance and LiteJet System customers with a software upgrade which can be downloaded from CentraLites website free of charge.
