PROTOCOL  Architectural  Lighting control Systems & Dimmers


Simple, reliable, easy to install & inexpensive lighting controls

The PROTOCOL architectural lighting control system ( dimming or switching )  is modular with distributed processing. The absence of a central processing unit (CPU) makes it  simple, reliable, inexpensive and suitable for most small to middle sized commercial and residential lighting control and energy management applications.


Wireless RS485 interfaces could be used to expand the systems to areas where there are no DATA cables.


The PROTOCOL Dimmer Modules adapt perfectly to all types of installations. The PROTOCOL Wall stations ( keypads) conveniently replace numerous and confusing banks of wall Dimmers and Switches. 


The Presets ( Scenes ) could be created from the wall stations and modified by the User  without the need of any PC or programming devices.


From 2 dimming Zones and up, the PROTOCOL presents  affordable dimming and lighting controls solutions.


The PROTOCOL presents a practical alternative for repairing and restoring older lighting control Systems.


 LED Lights PWM dimming Modules makes the PROTOCOL dimming & switching system an ideal solution for lighting control  systems powered by a DC voltage such as sailboats, RVs , Solar powered cabins, etc.


The PROTOCOL Dimmers can seamlessly interface to PCs and other Audio Visual A / V control devices via RAU-96 and could be voice activated by Infrared remote.


The PROTOCOL Dimmers and control stations are  user friendly, highly reliable and competitively priced.  

The PROTOCOL Dimmers are  UL listed .  Made in the USA


High quality Architectural lighting dimming systems at a lot lower cost  PRICING.
