RA Controller

Remote Access Controller
Utility Controller - Remote Access

This RA Series of the Utility Controller features many of the same configurations and options as the Standard Controller but is designed to provide ease in a retrofit situation.  Intended as an upgrade to present control of the science classroom utilities without the refurbishing of the entire room.  Output circuits should comply with ISIMET output circuit requirements.

Specific Features:

  • Allows the Door Panel component to be “Surface Mounted”.
  • Permits the Controller to be located remotely from the classroom.
  • Eliminates wall repairs and resurfacing.
  • Key Switch resets Panic.  
  • Can be Multi-Packaged for up to 4 individual systems.
  • Available in White Powder Coat Wall Panel Only.
  • Single systems can be upgraded to the LS Series.

 

Additional Features and Offerings:

  • Limited design assistance provided to the school.
  • System can be installed by on-site maintenance staff.
  • Auxiliary and Remote Circuits are available.

The RA Series combines a surface mounted Wall Panel with a separate enclosure that houses the primary Controller components.  Minimum wall demolition is required with virtually no wall repairs needed.  A wall box is inserted into the wall cavity to provide a mounting point and connection area for the control wiring from the wall panel switches terminating at the PCB of the Controller. 

The system is provided with a spool of 24 AWG shielded control cable in lengths of 25 feet; 50 feet; or 75 feet.  This control cable can be either installed surface mounted to the wall with a field provided wire mold or within the wall cavity.  Once control cabling is installed, the wall panel mounts onto the wall box, using two set-screws to secure it in place.

It is recommended that the Controller be mounted directly overhead in the ceiling space (especially important if the LS Series Option is included); or remotely mounted on a wall surface in either a storage closet or science prep-room.  Control wiring to the solenoids and electrical contacts are installed similarly to that of the standard unit.

A Multi-Pack system is available that incorporates up to four Wall Panels in four individual classrooms.  Each Panel terminates at a single remotely located Multi-Package Controller that houses four individual Version 8.4 PC Boards that each functions independently from the others.  A single source “EMS” signal will enable all four Controllers.  Alarm outputs from each can be directed either individually to a Remote Monitoring Panel or combined into a single output signal.

 The Multi-Pack systems are engineered to meet the specific needs of an individual application on demand and can be packaged with multiple-grouped E-Series Enclosures and individual solenoids as well as necessary hook-up wiring cables.  Design criteria and limited installation coordination service is included in Multi-Pack systems.


 

ISIMET Utility Controllers and Companion Enclosures
Two Hour Fire Rating

UL Test #1479

All ISIMET Utility Controllers, Enclosures and Accessories can be certified for two-hour fire rating.  Working closely with the industry leader in fire rated materials, ISIMET can offer our enclosures with a one-half inch fire rated blanket.  This blanket that is adhered to the outer surface of the enclosure will enable the installer to incorporate the ISIMET product into a fire rated wall without the need for additional blanket or other rated material.

To specify a unit as “Fire Rated” use the following nomenclature:

Add to the ISIMET Part Number:  Prefix “F2” for all Utility Controllers, Companion Enclosures and Accessories.  Model numbers are for example only.

UtC-F2-12X9 indicates a four-circuit Utility Controller with fire blanket.

LA-F2-1212 indicates a wall mounted LA Series with fire blanket.

FLA-F2-2235 indicates a wall mounted FLA Series with fire blanket.

E-F2-1212 indicates a twelve-circuit E-Series with fire blanket.

S-F2-1211-3-3/4-K indicates a three-station S-Series with fire blanket.

MLA-F2-1-B indicates a Monitoring Beacon with fire blanket.

All components utilized in this “Fire Rating” will be provided with additional instructions for installation in order to insure that the rated material and process is not violated or damaged during installation.  Fire caulking as well as foil tape and extra blanket material is included for all components except for accessories.  Accessories are provided with foil tap and extra blanket only.  Fire caulking will need to be field provided.  Enclosure Sizes limited to 24” X 24” X 8” and smaller.
