0-10 Clarification on eldoLED White paper on Lighting Control System

eldoLED White paper on Choosing the right Lighting Control System

On the section of 0-10 control there has been some confusion



In this section eldoLED are using 0-10V and 1-10V to indicate the two different styles of this type of control.

  • What they are calling 0-10V is the old school analog lighting desk style 0-10V. Controller sources current, controlled devices sink current.
  • What they are calling 1-10V is the architectural current usage of this – controller sinks current, controlled devices source current.

In their terms, the ETC 0-10v card is a 1-10v controller – it sinks current.

  • These would include:
    • ERP 0-10v control card
    • ERP-FT 0-10v control card
    • Echo Room controller (4 and 8)
    • Echo Zone Controller with 0-10v
    • Foundry Mini Panel (4 and 8 )
    • Foundry Zone Controller with 0-10v
    • Sensor IQ 0-10v control card
    • Unison DRd 0-10v control card
    • Response 0-10v Gateway
