Simple retrofit for lighting control

The Ebmint miniature presence detector from CP Electronics is designed for quick and simple retrofitting to luminaires to provide control by presence and lux level. These detectors can be fitted onto an LED, T5 or T8 tube directly or to a louvre blade of a parabolic louvred luminaire — minimising disruption. They can also be used with compact fluorescent lamps.

There are three models — Premium (switched), Direct Dim of up to four dimming ballasts (DALI or DSI) and analogue dim (1 to 10 V). Movement can be detected up to 7 m from the device.

These detectors have a built-in power supply and come prewired with a heat-resistant cable and patent-pending louvre clip.
