Founded in 1992, Powerline Control Systems (PCS) has been successfully developing and manufacturing reliable, high-quality lighting controls for the residential and commercial markets. PCS products are designed to use standard powerlines to communicate control signals without additional wiring. PCS has developed UPBâ„¢ powerline communication technology which raises the reliability of powerline control to a new level. Potential applications for this technology include lighting, appliance, heating and cooling systems, and web-to-device interfacing. Additionally, PCS developed IPC(Industrial Powerline Communications), a patented retrofittable lighting control technology for industrial and commercial applications. Based on PCS's award-winning UPB technology, used extensively in residential applications, IPC has been developed specifically for high noise, high attenuation environments. Without new wires being run to the lighting fixtures, IPC provides remote control of almost unlimited numbers and types of lighting fixtures. Lighting zones can include any fixture in the building regardless of the fixture's physical location, phase, circuit, or panel it is connected to. IPC allows for the lighting zones to be programmed remotely from a computer without physically accessing the fixtures or rewiring. PCS has been awarded the Home Automation and Networking Association Product of the Year (1999), as well as being chosen as a Top 50 Editor's Pick in 1998 (Lighting Control Module), 1999 (Multi-Module), and 2000 (Fluorescent Smartswitch) by CEPro magazine. PCS currently maintains membership in the following professional organizations; CABA and the Techome Division of the Consumer Electronics Association.
