Launch of New Enclosures Signals Significant Enhancements to Vantage’s InFusion Lighting Control Solution

OREM, UT, February 16, 2012 – Vantage, the leader in lighting, audio/video and comfort control systems for luxury spaces, today announced a new line of enclosures. The new enclosures have been designed to support overall enhancements to Vantage’s core Infusion lighting control solution which will provide increased control precision regarding new light sources, a future ready capability while maintaining backwards compatibility with prior Vantage hardware, and deliver enhanced Integrator efficiency for both installation and service.

 

“There are many lighting control solutions available today, but for over 25 years Vantage has led the industry in solutions that uniquely address the complexities of lighting control in luxury spaces,” said Andrew Wale, Vantage’s Vice President of Marketing.  “This evolution in our InFusion lighting control system builds on our established tenets and now introduces a whole new level of capability.”

 

This new enclosure line includes main and secondary, two or four module enclosures, as well as auxiliary enclosures. The new enclosures are designed for more efficient field installation; each enclosure features new module locking mechanisms for improved in-field plug and play module installation and service, allowing modules to be quickly replaced without affecting load connections or field wiring to the system. Custom fit hinged doors for recessed or surface installs give installers easier access to the controller and modules. The enclosure designs support the increased capability of the enhanced lighting control solution with the four module enclosure (IMPE-4) now having the capacity for up to 16 line feeds and up to 256 amps, twice the output of its predecessor with a minimal 10” increase in length. These enclosures are both UL and CE rated and available for order now.  

 

The enclosure release facilitates significant enhancements to Vantage’s InFusion lighting control solution that will take place in 2012. These enhancements, deemed necessary to translate advances in lighting technology to an improved user experience will provide:

Increased control precision - new dimming modules and Low Voltage Output Stations (LVOS) will be introduced mid 2012 to offer increased control precision of multiple light source technologies and complex lighting scenarios.

Future ready and backwards compatible - new modules are backwards compatible with installed Vantage Q and InFusion systems and will provide for field firmware upgrades, granular load monitoring, hardware notification and sensor integration with increased support of low wattage loads.

Improved system design flexibility - increased capacity regarding support of Arc Fault Breakers provided by the new modules, with full support of all dimming technologies including forward and reverse phase, 0-10, PWM and DMX form the complete solution.  Vantage’s award-winning Design Center Software will remain a constant while providing simplified enclosure layout and design capabilities.

A Global Solution – to complement its extensive range of DIN form factor products, Vantage will release a CE certified version of the above enclosure based lighting control solution in early 2013.
