The part no. 364677-01 ALC Branch Hub extends the wiring distances of ALC branches up to 1000 additional feet from a lighting controller. The Hub incorporates active electronics that selectively recondition weakened communication signals on an ALC two-wire communications branch. The Hub supports direct wiring of ALC switches to a centralized connection location providing a structured ALC lighting system installation. A direct wiring methodology is conducive to testing and efficient isolation of faults when they occur. The Hub acts as a conduit to pass ALC communications between all connected switches and a lighting controller. A single category cable may provide ALC communications and 12 VDC, 100mA power to each Hub.
