Danlers launches ‘intelligent’ batten-mount PIR occupancy switch range
Danlers has launched two batten-mounted PIR occupancy switches capable of significant energy savings at low cost, ideal for switching lights off when not required. With energy savings of up to 50% the payback period is kept to a minimum.
These UK manufactured IP 53 rated controls can switch lighting loads of up to 10A and be mounted onto the end of lighting battens. They detect movement of a warm body within their detection zones (5 or 10 m variants) and include a photocell which can be set to between 100 and 3000 lx. An LED indicates if the photocell is active or inactive. Its radical calibration process can distinguish the difference between artificial and natural light, removing the site-specific addition of artificial light from any decision to automatically switch the lights on/off. This technology has a GB patent pending No. 1219746.3.
