ETC releases Unison Paradigm 4.0

ETC has released the latest version of its software for the Unison Paradigm system for lighting installations. Paradigm 4.0 incorporates energy monitoring options, including Demand Response, extended support for Paradigm Inspire stations, including faders, and many software optimisations.

Energy monitoring, conservation and response are mission critical in today’s lighting systems. Demand Response is now a fully-integrated component to Paradigm.

Individual channels, groups of channels or whole spaces can be set to shed load when the system receives a demand response command from the utility company. Standard actions are defined in Paradigm and can be executed from contact closures, UDP, RS232, or BACnet.

Load Schedule import and export functions make it easy to enter load information, and Paradigm’s software automatically calculates energy usage for all load types from any manufacturer.

Many ETC products communicate with the Paradigm control system natively using Net3 Energy Reporting to get accurate, real-time energy usage. The system is smart enough to accommodate multiple costs for peak, partial-peak, and off-peak consumption, too. All this information is available in interactive graphs showing energy consumption for up to 10 years, while users can also export daily usage information in a calendar format.

The public face of Paradigm receives an update with improved support for Paradigm Inspire stations as well as tunable-white and colour-changing fixtures. The stations now offer increased control options with button support for push, double-tap, and hold functionality. The new four-button with fader control station offers an intuitive way for users to choose colour, intensity, hue, saturation, colour temperature, and tint.

Paradigm 4.0 features UI updates and design software improvements. Paradigm’s own design software, LightDesigner and ControlDesigner, both receive an upgrade.
