Version 3.0 of Strand System Builder™ lighting control software includes updates to its Luminaire Wizard, Console Wizard, and Distribution Wizard, as well as hundreds of updates and additions to the reference library source materials. It now features compatibility with products such as Palette II/Palette VL control desks, Contact Low Voltage Relay Panels, and Occupancy/Photocell sensors. Check for Updates makes data sheets, written specifications, user manuals, catalogs, and product drawings available via the Strand server. Rooms may now be linked, allowing the design of standalone dimmer rooms that connect to a control system in another room. Rooms with separate architectural dimmer systems may also be linked to rooms containing master control panels. Additionally, dimming and relay equipment may now be optimized on a room-by-room basis, rather than project-wide.
