Mode Evolution Control Plates


The lighting within an installation can be manually controlled by a multi-button Control Plate.

Key features

  - Single gang plate
  - Screwless fascias plate utilising the MK Aspect range 
  - Buttons available in either black or white
  - Multifunction buttons - scene recall, impulse and toggle
  - Indicator LED's with seven user selectable RGB colours and intensity. Red, Green, Blue, Magenta, Cyan, Orange and White.
  - Integral IR Infrared receiver
  - 1-4 Room Partition facility
  - Two volt-free contact switch inputs - Individually addressable and configurable
  - Keypad Lockout
  - Fault condition feedback via LED flashing
  - 2 year warranty

The 10 Button Control Plate provides eight configurable buttons allowing scene recall, impulse and toggle and two multifunction buttons providing On & Raise and Off & Lower with integral IR receiver. All buttons have integral RGB LED's.

The indicator LED's within the buttons are RGB and dimmable, therefore seven colours of selectable intensity are available. Where buttons have a multifunction i.e. Toggle On & Off, the LED colour can toggle, say Green & Red to provide current status.

The Control Plates are connected to an Area Controller via the M-BUS network cable. The M-BUS provides the means of SELV communication between the Area Controller to Lighting Controllers and Control Devices

  • Leading Edge Dimmer Packs Evolution Power and...
    Evolution is a versatile and highly configurable architectural control system designed for both lighting and peripheral management. Evolution is uniquely adaptable, making it an ideal choice for use in a vast number of applications including modern smart homes, shopping centres, restaurants, hotels, cruise ships, boardrooms, hospitality suites and offices. System features include RS232, DMX, DSI and 0/1-10v controls. A built-in astronomical clock facilitates events triggered at any time of day, linked with sunrise - sunset calculations or by user definable seasons. Any input may control any output with the ability to provide operation of a sequence of events, for example, control of lighting, blind motors, commands to building management systems, colour changing etc. Unique features such as self-program-on-installation and distributed intelligence make the Evolution simple to install and maintain.
    The Evolution power and processor unit builds on the quality and reliability of Mode product designs and offers high specification control and power management in a mechanically, electrically and thermo dynamically designed unit.
    All Mode products are guaranteed for a two year period.
