Savage Marine Ltd, leading specialists in the design and manufacture of lighting solutions for the cruise, superyacht and marine leisure industries, has extended its product line with the addition of a fully integrated lighting control system for the control and dimming of LEDs: the BOLT 320.
The BOLT 320, part of Savage Lighting’s new Zeus Technology range, has been specifically designed for the marine markets to simplify LED lighting integration. It focuses on ease of installation, configuration, and operation. Supplied as a self-contained unit with built-in Wi-Fi for stand alone set up, it is connected via a simple low voltage 3 wire bus system. It features four 0-10v industry standard dimming channels, supports an incoming DC range from 12v-28v and can be connected directly to LED lights with inbuilt drivers or to external 0-10v compatible drivers.
The system is configured via a simple web-based user interface. It provides real-time scene and mood settings allowing the user to see the exact effects of any changes made to the setup. To prevent flickering LEDs when dimmed below a certain level, the trim of the LED can also be set. The modular design enables the system to be extended as required. Integrators looking to use this as part of a boat-wide integrated system can opt to use the conventional ethernet connection for configuration as well as the available control modules for integration with third-party control systems such as Crestron, Control 4, AMX and Savant.
Throughout the design and development, onboard needs have remained central to the product’s functionality and features. With an input for emergency lighting, the system automatically switches to the emergency supply and predetermined lighting scene. It supports up to six Zeus Connect switches per controller and scenes can be programmed for the switches. Scenes can also be programmed for external I/O triggers and emergency settings.
