Crestron announced this week the launch of its new “intelligent power supply” (CSA-PWS10S-HUB), which can power up to ten Crestron shade motors of any kind, each with its own replaceable fuse. The built-in integrated five-segment Cresnet hub provides an isolated control network for each pair of shades, therefore limiting the impact of any wiring faults. The CSA-PWS10S-HUB replaces all current Crestron multi-shade power supplies.
According to Crestron, no other shade power supply offers such robust built-in diagnostics, enabling integrators to:
- Automatically shut down the branch with the fault
- Identify wiring issues such as shorts and crossed connections quickly and easily without a multi-meter
- Trigger program events based on problems detected by the power supply (e.g., notices on touch screens and emails to service department).
A master raise/lower pushbuttons on the supply housing make it simple to test for proper shade operation prior to system commissioning — without the need for a connected control system or computer.
The power supply ships ready to mount on the wall. It’s also available in a pre-assembled, UL listed bundle with a 1×1 CAEN enclosure (CSA-PWS10S-HUB-CAEN-1X1) that can be surface or recess mounted.
