LightSpace® Controller (LSC) extends ActiveLED Lighting Zones to Ethernet and LightSpace Server. Allows up to eight EDSaP input channles and eight EDSaP output channels per device to be controlled by a program stored in the LSC. The LSC also has an PoE Ethernet connection extending the local EDSaP network to the Ethernet network.
The ActiveLED® Controller centrally controls the light levels of all attached lighting zones from 0 (off) to 100% (fully on) in 2% increments. The human interface can be to a GUI application on a PC connected to the controller via Ethernet, USB or Wireless.
The Controller can also be configured to manage lighting zones in conjunction with other LightSpace Appliances such as the LightSpace Manager and the LightSpace Remote Motion Sensor. In this configuration each Appliance controls a lighting zone while the Controller gathers and records lighting statistics for each zone, such as maximum and minimum light levels and durations.
ActiveLED® Lighting Fixtures can be interconnected to each other, building a lighting zone. A lighting network consists of one or many lighting zones, each zone may be individually connected to the LightSpace Controller, the sum of the lighting zones being a lighting network. A lighting zone can be as simple as a single light fixture, the fixtures in a room or section of a building, or perhaps all the fixtures in a building that are interconnected using ActiveLED's inexpensive communications cabling scheme.
Each LightSpace Controller can directly manage up to eight of these physical lighting zones to form a lighting network and up to five LightSpace Controllers (host plus four) can be locally interconnected via USB to provide control of up to 40 lighting zones. LightSpace Controllers can be remotely interconnected via an Ethernet network to provide seamless management as a single integrated lighting network.
Up to eight LightSpace Appliances (LightSpace Manager, Digital Rotary Dimmers, Motion Sensors, etc) can be attached to a single LightSpace Controller via a 6-wire RJ-12 cable. Up to five LightSpace Controllers can be locally interconnected via USB and at least 100 LightSpace Controllers can be remotely interconnected via an Ethernet network to provide seamless management of a single integrated lighting network.

LightSpace® Controller Physical Overview
The LightSpace Controller with its power supply is a 1U 19" Rack Mount for easy and secure installation. The following ports / connections are available:
|•||Eight RJ-11 4-pin EDSaP channels, each one is for unidirectional communications directly to an ActiveLED Lighting fixture or zone as defined earlier.|
|•||Eight RJ-12 6-pin EDSaP channels, each one is for bi-directional communications directly to a LightSpace Appliance.|
|•||One 10/100 MB Ethernet port for connection to an Ethernet network.|
|•||Four USB ports for inter-connecting five Controllers together or connecting to a PC and the management software or attaching optional devices such as a Wireless Dongle.|
|•||Internal connector for the optional ZigBee wireless adapter.|
LightSpace® Server Software Overview
LightSpace Server is state-of-the-art software technology running on all currently supported Microsoft Business or Education Platforms such as Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 or 10 as well as server platforms 2003 and 2008.
The database is MS-SQL or MS-SQL-Express. It's purpose is to collect events, device and zone configurations such as on and off times and dimming levels, as well as storing rules for enterprise wide enforcement if that option is installed.
The service can be controlled through an HTML-5 compliant browser interface. Compatible browsers are Safari, Firefox and MS-Explorer 10.
The supplied LSCServiceConfig utility is used to configure the service with it's database settings.
