“Imagine the day when a fifty story mid-rise will change its
glass “skin” façade as the day progresses, taking into
account the landlord’s operational requirements, tenant
customization, the temperature outdoors, and the amount of
sunlight hitting each window – Welcome to the world of
windows controlled by SCSC”
"SCSC is a proud RFI licensee for SPD electronics. Our
mission is to be THE electronics' partners for our fellow
John Petraglia, CEO
“We have assembled a management team and engineering staff
with vast systems experience to create a full product line
that will allow SPD-Smart windows and other products to be
controlled in the smallest residential installation to the
largest commercial environments, and in automotive,
aerospace, rail and marine vehicles as well. Whether it is a
private residence, a small office building, or a skyscraper
with thousands of windows, SCSC will offer standardized
electronic control systems to maintain energy efficiency and
occupant comfort through automated or manual tinting

(Long Island, NY) about SCSC.
The SPD industry is
progressing rapidly after the major film announcements by
Hitachi. The first markets are
automotive and aerospace. The marine and architectural
markets are not far behind.
require one source for satisfying their SPD requirements.
The suppliers must provide a guaranteed SPD film supply, glass, lamination, and electronics. Customers are looking for total solutions, including the
electronics. SCSC is playing a
key role in bringing together SPD licensees to satisfy customer
requirements. We have been on the road over the last couple
of months to Japan, Germany, Italy and Spain. We are visiting
automotive customers and licensees with the intent of
coordinating the supply chain and to present the benefits of
working with SCSC as the SPD Electronics Center of Excellence.
SPD Building Facade Simulation
Welcome to a
“12-Hour SPD Day” video animation. The video you are about to
see, simulates the daily operation of a high rise office
building that is constructed from SPD-Glass. The SPD-Glass
building in this video is in a city of fixed tinted windows.
This building is equipped with the SPD Control Systems
Corporation (SCSC) Falcon Controllers and the SCSC Master
Control Computer coordinating their activities wirelessly.
controllers are placed across the entire façade of the building.
In the summer day shown in the video, solar energy is
dynamically and dramatically reduced by keeping the windows
darkened during that time of the day that the sun is hitting
them. Because the system is software driven and each individual
window is controllable, many different control sequences can be
programmed into the system.
SCSC is proud to announce that we are now shipping
the first orders for SPD Film Demonstration Units. With the availability
of Gen 2 film from DIC and Hitachi we were able to complete the unit
with optimum electrical/optical characteristics for film from both
companies. We are now supporting our licensees, car makers, and
glass makers by providing them demonstration units required by
their on going projects.
We are accepting
orders for the second production run of Demonstration
The demo unit has been created so that you can put operational SPD
material in the hands of the architects and other designers
who are capable of integrating this material into their new
designs. The demo setup consists of two pieces of
SPD-Glass/Film (not included) and a control unit that
operates manually, via photocell, via remote control IR
devices, or automatically - running through a series of
lighting programs to display switching speeds and lighting
of the specifications are,
·Housed in a
·Power ON LED
·Battery Low LED
- the device will NOT drive the SPD glass if power is below
a fixed amount to insure the highest performance of the
·Button to set
- a DARK/CLEAR button allows for a linear change to the
opaqueness/transparency of the SPD glass.
– up to 2 pieces of SPD glass cycle through a predefined set
of demos with a slow ramp up, fast ramp up, blinking on and
off, and a mix of other combinations. The beating of the
settings on different pieces of material is an impressive
display of the switching capabilities.
- to demonstrate how the glass can change depending upon
light hitting a photocell
- where you can use an IR remote controller directly to
change the transparency of the glass.
- this is reserved for a special demo or feature as
requested by a customer.
The Revelation demonstration controller has a custom mode reserved
in it for us to load specialized software requested by our
customers. Although the standard product is perfect to give
to an architectural firm so they can see SPD-film in
operation and play around with it, the custom mode can be
set up to support glass manufacturers in insuring that every
piece of glass that leaves the factory has been unit tested.
The custom mode can be programmed for other variations that
the particular manufacturer wishes to test as part of their
discounting of Revelation products is shown at the online
price sheet for this product.
