Super MONO controller STX-2195


   The STX-2195 controller is used for dynamic lighting control of the stairs. Its operation is based on an advanced animation of switching on the backlight of successive steps depending on the direction of movement: climbing or descending.

The controller has a built-in clear OLED text display, by means of which you can set all the parameters of the controller.

The most important features of the STX-2195 controller:
— built-in display for setting parameters and checking the operation of the controller
— operation of 25 steps and 2 handrails,
— 7 preset programs and 4 user's own programs
— all programs can be changed and modified by the user
— there are 43 different animations from which you can build your own programs
— built-in twilight sensor,
— mezzanine service with additional access to the stairs
— triggering by buttons and motion sensors,
— remote control via phone app (Android only!)

The controller has 7 different stair lighting animation programs for both directions. Additionally, the user can define his own 4 programs or change the operation of factory programs. There are 43 different basic animations available, from which you can arrange any lighting and extinguishing programs for the stairs.

Setting parameters, changing programs and other activities related to the operation of the controller can be corrected and changed using the built-in screen on which relevant information is displayed. This facilitates the operation of the controller. You can choose one of the predefined programs permanently or set options so that the selected programs change cyclically or randomly.

The controller has five inputs: three to operate the sensors: bottom, top and platform, and two additional: one to turn on the light permanently and one to change programs. An additional input allows the connection of an external light sensor to block the animation of stairs in bright lighting.

Depending on the parameter settings of the controller, the lighting of the stairs may go out to zero or to a certain minimum value that allows you to lightly illuminate the stairs for their presentation, or to make it easier to move around them in the dark - without turning on the full lighting (especially important for children!).

It is adapted to control MONO LED strips placed in the steps of the stairs or LED points (spots) built into the wall above the steps. In the case of LED strips, the driver can smoothly brighten the lighting of each stage, which gives an effect pleasing to the eye.

The lighting can be started in the simplest version by pressing a button on the wall connected directly to the controller or by using (additionally) a sensor (infrared, movement, pressure, etc.) detecting the moment when a person enters the stairs.

The controller can operate up to a maximum of 25 degrees. It can also control the illumination of the stair railing - one or two railings. If there are no illuminated handrails, the device can control, for example, ceiling lighting (12V). The controller also supports stairs with a landing and an entrance to the mezzanine. An additional sensor or button is then required.

All driver parameters can be set by the user. You can set the number of steps in the range from 5 to 25. You can also set the illumination of one or two handrails. You can also change other parameters yourself. These are, among others: selection and change of light animation programs and their pace, switching on or off the backlight of stairs in the dark. If motion sensors are used, you can set the dead time of entering after receiving a signal from the sensor or no response to one or both sensors until the animation of the stairs is finished, which prevents the lighting from being turned on again when descending the stairs. You can also set a long start-up time of the controller so that it does not respond to transient states of the sensors after turning on the power. You can also restore the factory settings at any time.

The device can be controlled remotely using an Android smartphone using a dedicated application - downloadable from the store's website.
