The new SNAP lighting control panel provides unified DMX512 control of 0-10V analog outputs and relay switching, all within a single enclosure.  Intended for use with fully isolated LED fixture drivers requiring mains switching and 0-10V dimming, and for Mark VII type electronic fluorescent ballasts.

Each SNAP panel consists of an LC&D GR1400-series Blue Box relay panel with a Pathway Connectivity eDIN SNAP Panel Interface card. The interface provides single DMX channel control over the relay and analog output pairs, or allows separate DMX control of relays and analog outputs. The interface also provides a full, non-sequential DMX soft-patch for maximum flexibility.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Pathway has determined that some LED luminaire manufacturers are providing non-isolated fixture drivers with non-Class 2, 0-10V dimming options.  The #1004 is not intended for use with non-isolated or Class 1 fixture drivers.  Please review the Technical Bulletin in the download chart below, or download the document here. Use of the #1004 with non-isolated drivers may result in damage to the #1004. This damage is not covered under warranty.

UL924: When connected to the emergency transfer circuit, the SNAP panel will perform normally, and circuits may be triggered using the AUX IN dry contact control. For best operation, AUX1 and AUX2 are jumpered together and a maintained contact is provided by the panel between AUX1/2 and COM.  When the maintained contact is broken on return to normal operation, the panel will be restored to DMX control.  

If the panel electronics are not connected to the emergency transfer circuit, the panel is designed to fail with the relays closed and the analog outputs open (full intensity).  Please note that any mix of emergency and non-emergency circutis is governed by local codes.
