CentraLite Elegance 48 XL Package

Elegance XL 48 Load/Circuit Whole Home Lighting Control System Package
Manufacturer: CentraLite


The CentraLite Elegance 48 XL is the first step onto the Elegance range of whole home lighting control systems, and is the next natural step away from the smaller LiteJet systems that can encompass upto 24 loads.

The Elegance 48 XL is a complete system 'package' that includes the ability to control and dim* up to 48 loads (or circuits) of lighting. It comes with two 24 load ‘slim-line relay panels’ (SLRP's), and these panels house 24 low leakage leading edge dimming modules, and also comes complete with pre-fitted Relay Driver Boards (RDB's) with power supplies.

Also housed in the bottom of each SLRP is a 96 input 'SuperStar' (with pre-wired PSU's). The SuperStar is dedicated board for terminating switches/buttons into the system. The SuperStar features both 110 punchdowns and RJ45's for Cat5 cabling - which means easy and quick termination of all your system switches, such as the UK 'DFP' (Designer Flat Plate) switches. This means that in total the Elegance 48 XL supports upto 192 completely indepedent switch lines/button's.

Also included in the system package are two 24 load 'Hotbox' manual override units - one for each panel. These units enable lights to be turned on manually without the need of the system MCP, which is perfect for sites where everything is not completed and when you don't want the MCP yet put into place to avoid potential damage. Additionally; it means that lights can be turned on or off in the unlikely event of a MCP malfunction.

Unlike the LiteJet, the more powerful Elegance 48 XL features a seperately housed microprocessor - what we refer to as the 'MCP'.  The MCP has a myriad of custom settings, as the system MCP supports over 2,000 dimming levels, and also provides up to 256 unique customisable scenes and up to 50 timed events. The resident astronomical clock automatically can calculate day length throughout the year and adjusts programs or triggers events/scenes as needed when configured. The Elegance MCP also has 3 RS232 ports for programming and 3rd party control connectivity, and is housed in a seperately supplied  'Rough In Enclosure' (RIE) and comes with a dedicated PSU.

Finally, the Elegance 48 XL package comes with 17 UK DFP (Designer Flat Plate) switches. These are an 'entitlement', so they can be in any combination of 2, 4 or 6 button styles and in either polished or brushed steel finishes. When you place the order with us - let us know which types and styles you require for your project and these will be added to your system package.

The Elegance 48 XL is also supported by most major control systems - such as Compass Control from Key Digital, or by Control4 with Extra Vegetables modules now available. If your chosen control system does not have a module already written, don't panic - the RS232 protocols are available and are easily encompassed within any project.

The system has a complete 5 year limited warranty and is supplied with the programming software on purchase. Training berfore purchase is mandatory.
