MACH-ProLight
BACnet® Controller

Empower your facility managers to save energy by integrating lighting controls into your building automation system with the Reliable Controls MACH‑ProLight™ advanced lighting controller, the world’s first BTL Listed product to meet or exceed the BACnet Lighting Device (B-LD) profile. The MACH‑ProLight is a freely programmable and scalable BACnet Building Controller (B‑BC) that provides 0–10 V continuous dimming and BACnet binary lighting output (BLO) object support. This allows you to implement advanced control strategies such as daylight harvesting, dim‑to‑off control, vacancy control, plug‑load control, and scene/theme control, key strategies for achieving OpenADR and Title 24 compliance. Compatible with standard lighting control relays, low‑voltage peripherals, EnOcean wireless products, and Reliable Controls SPACE‑Sensor™ Temperature and SMART‑Sensor™ products, the MACH‑ProLight ships in a convenient preassembled UL 508A Listed control panel or as individual components.

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.
