DLC-G1212 Programmable BACnet Lighting Control

DLC-G1212 Lighting Controller

The DLC-G1212 is a fully programmable, Native BACnet™ Advanced Application Controller that communicates on a BACnet MS/TP RS-485 LAN. This controller is designed for lighting applications and has 12 GE lighting relay outputs per controller. The controller also supports up to 12 Delta BACstats connected on its LINKnet subnetwork.


The DLC-G1212 is suitable for controlling up to 12 lighting zones, switching a maximum of 48 GE lighting relays. The controller can be mounted in various GE relay enclosures for both new and retrofit construction projects. The DLC-G1212 is fully programmable: GCL+ programs and BACnet objects can be created and or modified for specific lighting applications.
