MACH-ProLight™
BACnet® Controller

Small, durable and packed with flexibility, the Reliable Controls® MACH-ProLight™ (MPL) is a fully programmable advanced lighting controller with highly scalable I/O in a very small footprint. The MPL meets or exceeds the BACnet® Building Controller (B-BC) device profile and supports the BACnet Binary Lighting Output object, which provides specialized properties for Blink Warn and lighting control strategies. The MACH-ProLight is ideal for a wide range of applications.

Typical Object Configuration

There are physical limitations to the number of inputs, outputs, and SMART-Sensors that can be connected to a MACH-ProLight controller. For other object types, a maximum number of 128 objects of a single type can be created. The total number of objects (including inputs, outputs, and SMART-Sensors) is limited to 160, and is also limited by the onboard memory. The table below details typical databases that fit in all models.

* Runtime Logs & EnOcean values are not counted in the 160 object limit while EnOcean device objects do count. Inputs and outputs are counted in the 160 object limit.

** Trends are configured to store 128 samples.
