Dimensions & Features

PWRPositive 10-30 VDC POCO supply power. Line must be fused prior to connecting to POCO with 3 Amp ATC blade fuse or equivalent (Constant ON or Switched with ACC Line)
GRNDNegative 10-30 VDC POCO supply power
ACCPositive 10-30 VDC, Low current enable line to turn POCO on from remote device (i.e. MFD) (Must be powered to enable Poco)
RESET*See "RESET MODES" chart below
1-4 INChannel Input power. Line must be fused prior to connecting to POCO with 10 Amp ATC blade fuse or equivalent (14 AWG 300V 16 inch long cable)
1-4 OUTChannel Output power to lighting circuit. Maximum 10 Amp load per channel. Maximum total load across all channels is limited to 40 Amps. Load on channel must be only one of the following (Lumitec PLI enabled lighting / lighting capable of dimming (through PWM) / device requiring a standard ON-OFF circuit) (14 AWG 300V 16 inch long cable)
LANLocal Area Network connection. 10/100 Base T data connection to POCO. Standard CAT-5 cable with RJ45 connector required to plug into sealed network cable adapter. (18 inch long cable with Link light)
POWERIndicator - Illuminates Green if POCO is powered on, both PWR and ACC lines must have supply voltage between 10 and 30 VDC
CH1-4Indicator - Illuminates Red if power is supplied to Channel from fuse/breaker panel: - Illuminates Green if power is supplied to Channel input and channel is turned on inside of POCO controller; PLI enabled lights may be OFF: - Flashes Orange if PLI data is transmitted: - Illuminates Orange if channel is dimmed through a PWM signal.
STATUSGreen blinking light indicates WiFi connection status: - 0 blinks: WiFi disabled - 1 blink: WiFi enabled but not connected to any peers - 2 blinks: WiFi is connected to one or more peers Blue blinking light indicates Bluetooth-LE connection status: - 0 blinks: Bluetooth-LE is disabled - 1 blink: Bluetooth-LE enabled but not connected - 2 blinks: Bluetooth-LE is connected
Short-press while Poco is running. Must release before 5s.Reboot poco (no change to settings)No indication while holding down button. After release button, status LEDturns solid 'aqua' color while rebooting. Then resumes normal pattern.
Press-hold for > 5s while Poco is running, then releaseRestore WiFi/BLE/Eth settings. Reboot poco (no change to settings) (no action until release, butLED provide feedback thatyou have held long-enough)No indication while holding down button for the first 5 seconds, then rapidly blink Green/Blue until release button. After release button, status LED turns solid 'aqua' color while rebooting. Then resumes normal pattern.
Press-hold while powering-on Poco. Release before 5snormal boot (no change to settings)Status LED turns solid 'aqua' color while booting. Then resumes normal pattern
Press-hold while powering-on Poco. Hold for > 5s.Factory restore all. - Wipes otadata partition; which disables booting to any OTApartitions. - Wipes internalfs (FAT) partition; which clears any user configuration. - Wipes nvs partition; which clears WiFi/BLE/Eth settings.Status LED turns solid 'aqua' color while waiting for user to keep holding button. There is no indication that user has held down button long-enough. After release button, Status LED continues solid 'aqua' color while booting. Then resumes normal pattern.


MFDMultifunction Display. Typically a touch screen with graphical user interface connected to various vessel sensors and hardware
PLIPower Line Instruction - Digital data sent from POCO over power wires to Lumitec lights to control color, intensity and displayed patterns
PWMPulse Width Modulation - Used to control the intensity of Non-PLI enabled lighting through the control of the power duty cycle
UIUser Interface typically displayed on MFD or other portable connected devices
TTPTime Toggle Protocol - Lumitec's proprietary technology allowing for user selectable light modes within a light by toggling a standard toggle switch
Channel (CH)One of (4) outputs on the switch hardware module
DeviceA single specific light or other accessory
ClanA PLI-level identifier for one or more devices. Clans are roughly organized around product families. See User Interface Setup for list of Clans
Light GroupA single Device or multiple Devices defined by Clan & Channel for PLI lights or a Channel if the light group is a PWM dimmable of standard ON/OFF device
SpectrumMode built into some Lumitec Lights that is a continuous changing of light hues (starts with blue light, transitions to red, then transitions to green and then transitions back to blue over a 3 minute time period)
Omnillume SwitchUser interface switch that has the ability to modify color and brightness for the lights that are attached to it with a press and hold action
SceneA set of commands sent to multiple light groups to create a custom lighting environment. Commands may include Intensity, Color, ON/OFF State, Etc.
