PCS Introduces The TEC (Timed Event Controller) as Part of The PulseWorxâ„¢ Product Line

PCS (Powerline Control Systems, Inc), a Northridge, CA based manufacturer of lighting control products announces a new product addition called the TEC to its PulseWorxâ„¢ product line. The TEC, a programmable timer to automatically control PulseWorxâ„¢ lighting devices at preset times provides lighting automation without the need for an expensive home management system.

"For consumers who simply want the convenience of having certain lights come on at different times of the day, the TEC is the answer", explains Stan Mann, PCS VP and Director of New Business Development and Licensing. "It provides an affordable automated lighting control solution for people who don't need a full fledged home automation system."

The TEC is part of PCS's PulseWorxâ„¢ line of residential lighting control products that utilize the patented UPBâ„¢ (Universal Powerline Bus) technology. The TEC can be programmed with 20 individual events, which can occur between once a day to once a year. Based on geographic location, a built-in astronomical clock can automatically adjust for sunrise/sunset, leap year and daylight savings. All programmed data is protected by non-volatile memory and can only be changed or deleted by reprogramming, regardless of power outage durations. A computer is used to program the TEC but scheduled events can easily be disabled from any UPBâ„¢ transmitter.

All PulseWorxâ„¢ products, including the new TEC are sold through Authorized PulseWorxâ„¢ Dealers, Wholesale Distributors, and professional integrators. These representatives sell, install, and support PulseWorxâ„¢ products to residential customers. For more information please visit http://www.pulseworx.com or call 818-701-9831.
