To simplify both mounting and planning as well as reducing possible errors, Glamox has chosen to integrate different sensor alternatives into the luminaire.
We have chosen 2 PIR solutions for our interior solutions (presence based on IR) and multi-sensors where both presence and daylight sensors are built in.
It is not possible to use IR in luminaires with tight covers because temperature changes in the cover will cause the sensor to react in error. In these instances we have chosen an ultrasound sensor which uses the Doppler effect.
By integrating the sensor into the luminaire we reduce the number of installation points, as well as placing the most used sensor very close to the user.
Remember that lower usage of the luminaire also increases the life of both the tubes and the electronics. Using a sensor always gives good overall economy.
A ”stand alone” IR sensor that can control the unit in which it is housed. Depending on whether there is anyone in the room the sensor will turn off/on. The delay can be set on the rear of the sensor. Factory default = 15 min.
A ”master” IR sensor that can control up to 19 slave luminaires. It can be connected to several ”master luminaires” for a greater coverage. This sensor turns the light down to approx. 10% when there is no-one in the room. Well suited to offices, corridors with glass walls and adjoining rooms etc. The slave luminaire is a standard luminaire with HFDd connection. The delay can be set on the rear of the sensor. Factory default = 15 min.
A ”dimmable” master multi-sensor (IR + daylight) that can control up to 19 slave luminaires. It can be connected to several “master luminaires” together for better coverage. This sensor turns a light off/on depending on presence in a room and regulates light depending on the amount of daylight compared to a pre-set reference level. This level is set by pulling a cord switch until you have found the desired level. You then pull the cord twice in quick succession to memorise this (the luminaire will blink twice if this has been done correctly). You can then either hide the cord in the luminaire or leave it for user adjustment which will override the pre-set level. The luminaire will return to the pre-set level when it is turned on again. Well-suited to areas with large amounts of daylight. The slave luminaire is a standard luminaire with HFDd connection.
Ultrasonic sensor that works as a ”Master” which can control up to 500W of lamp load. The sensor turns off/on depending upon presence in the room. The sensor is programmed with a sensitivity of about 9 metres in diameter and a 15 minute delay. Both the sensitivity and the delay are adjustable. It is very important to find the right sensitivity level as the sensor can react to very small vibrations. U-sensors are well suited for use in garage areas, technical rooms and other spaces where lighting with tight diffuser covers are used.
