Recommended Accessories
Radio Design Labs' FP-ECC1 is a control unit designed to automatically turn an A/V system on and off for maximum energy savings.  Multiple sensing inputs and control outputs are provided in standard formats affording optimum flexibility in a broad variety of installations.  The FP-ECC1 features may be enhanced through the use of optional RDL remote controls and detection and control modules.  Connections are provided to interface the FP-ECC1 with OEM equipment.

NOTE: Radio Design Labs' PS-24AS power supply is NOT included but is required in order to power this product.  Please see the "Accessories" tab or click here for more information on the PS-24AS power supply.

Actuation of any trigger input activates the CONTROL OUTPUTS.  The open-collector PULSE ON output is pulled to ground for one second to initiate startup of OEM equipment requiring momentary actuation.  The open-collector ON CONTINUOUS terminal is pulled to ground and the relay is engaged to control logic or relay-switched mains outlets for the A/V system.  Mains power may not be directly connected through the FP-ECC1.  Once triggered, the outputs are held on by any of the HOLD INPUTS or TRIGGER INPUTS.  Loss of signal on the trigger and hold inputs starts the power-down DELAY which is switch-selectable for 15, 30 or 60 minutes.  If the trigger and hold inputs remain inactive for the delay period, the ON CONTINUOUS terminal opens, the relay is de-energized and the PULSE OFF output is pulled to ground for one second to initiate shutdown of OEM equipment requiring momentary actuation.  The control outputs remain off and the module remains in a standby condition until the next trigger input is received.  The front-panel blue power LED glows dimly when the control outputs are off; it is bright when the control outputs are on.

The FP-ECC1 may be triggered by any of the three audio trigger inputs or by pulling the external trigger terminal to ground using RDL detection or control modules, open-collector outputs from OEM controllers or equipment, or by a magnetic door switch or motion sensor.

Two HOLD INPUTS are provided in addition to the TRIGGER INPUTS to keep the system powered while there is any user activity.  The AUDIO input is normally connected to the speaker output of the system power amplifier.  Switch-selectable low-cut filters are provided for all of the audio sensing inputs.  These filters attenuate low frequencies that could false trigger the module.  Audio and control connections use detachable terminal blocks.

RDL offers optional remote controls (D/DS-ECR1 and D/DS-ECR1L) that connect directly to the FP-ECC1 using twisted-pair wire and RJ45 connectors.  The remote controls provide the end-user with a momentary pushbutton to manually trigger the module control outputs and manually return the module to the standby condition.  A remote control is available that provides both a momentary power button and a 0 to 10 Vdc volume control.
