The Master Equipment Controller 2 (MEC2) system shall offer a state-of-the-art method of operating of gymnasium equipment such as basketball backstops, electric height adjusters, divider curtains, batting cages, overhead volleyball systems, and wrestling mat hoists. The MEC2 also allows on-off control of auxiliary components such as scoreboards, lights, fans, etc.* The MEC2 comes standard with one touch screen, 12VDC power supply, and main relay board capable of operating eight (8) gymnasium equipment components and/or up to 16 auxiliary components. The MEC2 is easily expandable to meet the demands of any facility, with maximum capability of operating 256 gymnasium equipment devices and/or up to 512 auxiliary devices. Key switch operation shall not approve as equal.
The MEC2 system shall consist of a 5" projected capacitive glass touch screen with a flush mounted bezel. Touch screen must be mounted into a standard 6 13/16"W x 4 1/2"H x 2 1/2"D electrical box (Garvin GB-2122 or equivalent) supplied and installed by others. Touch screen shall be installed within a clear, unobstructed view of all the controlled equipment. If operation of equipment in different locations is desired, the MEC2 can accompany an unlimited number of touch screens. For larger facilities where significant distance between touch screens is anticipated, an additional 12VDC power supply may be necessary for each additional touch screen. Any operator that does not allow multiple touch screens shall not be approved as equals. Any operator that is not projected capacitive such as tri-color LED shall not be approved as equals.
The MEC2 shall have tiered access levels that can be easily reprogrammed at any time to prevent unauthorized use. User level access shall have the ability to operate individual components or pre-defined groups. Administrative level access shall have the ability to define all field configurable settings, change passwords, define groups, and operate individual or grouped components.
The MEC2 system shall incorporate username and password to prevent unauthorized use. Up to 50 unique logins can be programmed. The MEC2 is safer than key switches because it only brings 12 volts to the floor, as opposed to inline key switches that use 110 volts. Safe operation of gymnasium equipment requires constant visual and audible monitoring. To promote safe operation, the system is designed to require constant pressure on touch screen to operate gymnasium equipment. Turning auxiliary components on or off simply requires a single touch. The system will automatically revert to secure mode after 15-60 seconds of inactivity. Secure mode time delay is field configurable by the end user.
The MEC2 shall include a main relay panel that consists of two banks of eight (16 total) 30 amp relays capable of operating eight momentary-controlled devices (0-230VAC or 0-30VDC) and/or up to 16 auxiliary components. The system requires only one 120VAC circuit, rated at minimum 15 amps for individual operation. The MEC2 also allows simultaneous grouped operation of gymnasium components up to eight (8) gymnasium components**. Groups will operate in an "ALL UP" or "ALL DOWN" manner for gymnasium equipment or "ALL ON" or "ALL OFF" for auxiliary components. Up to 20 groups per system can be easily programmed into the MEC2. For grouped operation of momentary-controlled devices, a dedicated 15 amp service is required for each device (e.g. to operate groups of up to 8 basketball backstop winches, provide 8x 15A circuits or 4x 30A circuits)***. Any system that does not offer grouped operation shall not be approved as equals.
The MEC2 system can be easily expanded at any point in time to meet any facility requirements. The system can accommodate 62 expansion relay boards per network. Expansion relay panels are available in two economical sizes to prevent excessive unused relays and to minimize system cost.
Refer to the MEC2 Wiring Diagram for complete electrical requirements. All wiring of electrical components shall be in accordance with local codes. All wiring, conduit, boxes, and programming shall be the responsibility of the electrical contractor. Jaypro Sports does not warrant any of the electrical work done by others. Any damage caused by faulty wiring or electrical problems shall not be the responsibility of Jaypro Sports, LLC.
