The new Delmatic Metro Desktop Touchpad frpm Delmatic is a versatile controller that helps to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions while giving users unparalleled control of their local environment from a single device. As such, the Touchpad is a wireless controller with intuitive context-sensitive graphical screens and a wide selection of software-configurable functions. Controllable parameters include light levels and lighting scenes, temperature, glare/shading and audio-visual funct

Delmatic Metro Desktop Touchpad

The Metro Touchpad can be used in both general offices spaces and in meeting rooms. In either case the touchpad itself is wireless and communicates to a ceiling-mounted receiver using infra-red signals. In a general office space it will control light levels, temperature set point and automatic blinds, whilst in a meeting room it can be used to control light levels, select pre-set lighting scenes and control audio-visual equipment.

The unit includes an integral temperature sensor, so that room temperature is measured at desk level and there is no requirement for wall-mounted temperature sensors and associated wiring. The MetroTouchpad can also be combined with a Delmatic multisensor, which combines a photocell sensor with a motion detector (configurable for absence or presence detection) This combination enables lighting and HVAC systems to be linked to occupancy – so that lighting in unoccupied areas can be dimmed or switched off, while temperature set points can be allowed to ‘drift’ through a wider band before activating cooling or heating. ASHRAE studies have shown that a widening of the temperature control band by just 1°C can result in up to 4% energy savings.

In addition, the photocell in the sensor can enable lighting to be dimmed in relation to daylight levels while maintaining required illuminance levels. This overcomes the problem of someone increasing lighting levels early in the day and then forgetting to reduce them as more daylight enters the space
