The Preset 10 Architectural is a lighting control station capable of storing up to ten presets. These presets are recorded by capturing the output of a DMX512 console. Each preset can then be assigned a unique fade time, from 0 to 999 seconds. Presets are recalled by pressing one of the buttons. Systems can be created by using one or more stations and a power supply. The solid aluminum faceplate is designed to install over a standard single gang electrical box. Connections to the Preset 10 Architectural are power (2 wires) and DMX512 (3 wires). Power for the Preset 10 can be supplied from a variety of sources, including a 10V class 2 "doorbell" transformer.

The Preset 10 Architectural system can work in conjunction with a lighting console, automatically switching between preset and console control. When the console generates DMX the Preset 10 Architectural goes off-line. The console then operates normally. Upon loss of DMX from the console, the Preset 10 Architectural either returns to its pervious preset or holds the last look (jumper selectable). The Preset 10 system also comes in a portable version (model PRE10-P) that acts as a backup station for any DMX512 lighting console or as a stand-alone DMX512 preset console.
