Stairs lighting MONO Controller STX-1795 (Professional)

Controllers » Stairs lighting



The STX-1795 controller serves for a dynamic control of the lighting of stairs. The lighting is switched on for consecutive steps, upwards or downwards, depending on the desired direction.

The controller is adapted to control MONO LED strips mounted in stair steps or LED points (spots) built into the wall above the steps. The LED strip controller can light up each step smoothly, which gives a nice visual effect.

Principle of operation - animation of light

   The controller has 3 different modes of light animation programs (upwards): WAVE – stairs light up one after another, CASCADE – the light „jumps” fast from top to bottom, lighting up the steps, ELEVATOR – three steps are lighted slowly, towards the top of the staircase. Downwards, the direction of the animation is changed suitably. You can permanently select one of the programs or set the options to cyclically change programs.
   The controller has four inputs which permits it to react to two or three detectors. This for instance makes it possible to serve a mezzanine with an entrance to the staircase. Input No. 4 allows you to turn the staircase lighting permanently on.

   Please watch the video - animation of STX-1795 is the same as STX-1792:

   Depending on the way the parameters of the controller are set, the lighting of the stairs can fade out totally or to a predetermined minimum value (making it possible to faintly light up the stairs, or to walk them easily in the dark — without turning on a full light — especially important for children!). When you press the top button, the stairs are lighted from top to bottom or turned off in the same direction.
   If another person steps on the stairs, the controller switches on a full illumination of stairs and after some time fades them out smoothly.

   Our Stairs Light Controller at work: 


   Lights can be turned on by directly pressing a button on the wall, which is connected to the controller, or by using an additional sensor (infrared, motion, pressure, etc.), which detects when a person steps on the stairs.
   The controller can be used for up to 23 steps. It can also control lighting of one or two handrails. If there is no handrail, the controller can serve to turn on ceiling lights (12V). The controller also can be used for a staircase with an entrance to a mezzanine. In such a case an additional sensor or button is necessary.

STX-1795 - diagram    Diagram shows the connection of the controller for 18 steps and two handrails (on both sides of the stairs). The control is provided via two push buttons on the top and bottom of stairs.

   All the parameters of the controller can be set by the user. In the original (factory) settings, the controller is ready for lighting up 15 steps, without lighting up the railing. It can be set up for a different number of steps, from 5 to 23. It is also possible to light up one or two rails. Other parameters can also be changed. These include: turning the lighting of the stairs on or off in the dark, the time steps are lit up, the time interval between the lightening up of successive steps (this influences the speed of lightening of the whole staircase), or the time after which the steps will be faded out. If motion detectors are used, “dead” time can be set after receiving a signal from a sensor, or if there is no response to one or both of the sensors, until the end of the animation program, to prevent re-lighting the stairs while going down. It is also possible to preset a longer time to start up the controller, so that it does not react to transient states after power is turned on. At any time, factory settings can be restored .
