Lumisys unveils MAXIOM Lumisys unveils MAXIOM

The first multi-protocol native relay panel

(Atlanta, GA) - Lumisys continues to simplify the lighting control process offering new innovative technology to make life easier for its integration partners and more energy efficient for the end user. The company has developed and launched a new lighting control product, MAXIOM which is the first product to feature Lumisys’ Lx5 technology platform. Lx5 is Lumisys’ 5th generation platform. It delivers industry-leading performance; two 32-bit microprocessors designed to work in concert with each other, four native protocols that are selectable via a dip switch (BACnet MS/TP, N2 Open, Lumisys Open, and TRIATEK legacy), capacity for additional native protocols, field flash upgradable memory, and Digi-Touch (an embedded subnet for local override switches and occupancy sensors that eliminates low voltage home run wiring and improves life-cycle maintenance). Beyond its integration capabilities, MAXIOM also delivers industry-leading relay endurance with Lumisys True Relay (LTR) technology. The product is now being used by Lumisys’ Integration Partners; Automated Logic, Johnson Controls, and Siemens Building Technologies.

Berk-Tek Launches New Line of Micro Data Center Plenum (MDP) Fiber Optic Cables

Berk-TekDesigned specifically for data centers and storage area networks, Berk-Tek delivers best-in-class micro-cabling technology with new and innovative MDP (patent pending) cable design, the perfect balance of performance and cable size. The new MDP cable design incorporates Berk-Tek’s patented dry loose-tube technology in a smaller O.D. and adapted specifically for the indoor-only DC/SAN and building backbone environment. The new patent-pending construction provides a 50% smaller cross sectional area than equivalent fiber count indoor cables. In DC/SAN applications, the new MDP cables can help prevent cabinet and pathway congestion, considerably enhancing airflow, and facilitating more efficient cooling. When compared to traditional ribbon interconnect, premises distribution, and indoor/outdoor loose tube cables, this new breed of cables offers improved density, ease of installation, termination, and sub-unit handling, presenting exceptional value in the DC/SAN space as well as intra-building backbone infrastructure.

ELK-M1KAM Single Door Access ModuleELK-M1KAM Single Door Access Module

The ELK-M1KAM is designed for access control. It is a single door access interface module for use on the M1 and M1EZ8 Control Panels. The M1KAM connects to the 4 wire keypad data bus in place of a traditional M1 Keypad. Since the maximum number of keypads on an M1 or M1EZ8 is 16, the maximum number of M1KAM modules (and controlled doors) is 16, minus any installed keypads. Even though an M1 Keypad can accept a 26 bit access reader, the M1KAM is a more powerful and less expensive access solution. For example; the M1KAM includes a relay (door unlock) output with form "C" dry contacts, making it compatible with most door lock devices regardless of the voltage rating and style (AC or DC). The M1KAM accepts many types of card swipe or proximity readers conforming to the 26 bit Wiegand format. As an added benefit, the M1KAM also accepts Dallas "One-Wire" iButtonTM readers/devices. The M1KAM also has additional inputs and outputs, including: a request to exit (RTE) button or device and a Door Contact (Sensor) input. Outputs on the M1KAM consist of a voltage output for "Door Held Open" Alarm, a voltage output for "System Ready to Arm", and a voltage output for "System Armed". The M1KAM is mounted in a universal surface mount plastic housing with knockouts for surface mount raceways.
