Product Name(s): CAC-200; IDC-200; LLC-200; PMC-201
Product Description: LONWORKS compatible, security, lighting, and power management controllers.
Product Application(s): CAC-200: Designed to operate card controlled doors and locking mechanisms. Compatible with a variety of card access technologies. IDC-200: Designed to monitor industry standard security devices including glass break monitors, motion detectors, door contacts, and tamper switches. Supports interface to remote dial-out alarming. LLC-200: Designed to control low voltage lighting control relays. Expandable to 48 circuits using (3) twelve circuit expansion modules. Supports lighting circuit activation based on occupancy or ambient lighting. PMC-201 monitors 4 power input signals to provide demand side management through electrical load shedding over the network (no hardware digital output signals). Maintains trend information on power usage, including average and peak demand. Performs pulse counting with four sliding-window or two fixed-window utility meters.

Additional Information
* Items in NV memory are not lost upon power or battery failure. Other types of NV memory such as EPROM, NOVROM, etc. do not directly impact system performance.
Can trend data be stored in this controller? Yes, IDC and PMC
How many total trend values can be stored? Information not provided
What is the controllers role in trending? Programming resident within controller gathers and stores trend data on-board. At set intervals, data is pulled by controller to workstation for archival.
Can controller be programmed to 'push' data to archive or are trends 'pulled' from controller?
When full, does controller automatically send up trend data, overwrite data, or stop logging data? If controller trend data buffer fills before being called by archive workstation, old data is overwritten.
Programming Method(s) Template/Menu-based configuration
Resident vs Non-Resident Program Execution All program execution is controller resident
Resident/Supervisory. This controller supervises the scheduling of other controllers.
Resident/Stand Alone. This controller contains its own schedule.
Non-Resident. This controller is dependent upon another controller for its schedule.
None. This controller has no scheduling features.
Resident Energy Management
Energy management algorithms for this controller can be custom programmed
Pre-programmed/built-in algorithms available, and are fully editable using custom programming
Pre-Programmed/built-in with limited editing via template-based programming (PMC-201 only).

Operate with last global settings or user-specified value? N.A.
Do broken network segments continue to communicate within the remaining segment?
(Note: May depend on proper termination of segments for higher speed networks.)
Does network automatically reconfigure upon restoration? No
Does network store 'loss of communications' alarm with time of event? Yes - by SMC-202
