Faced with the skyrocketing cost of energy and environmental concerns, builders, architects and lighting experts are increasingly turning to day lighting as a primary source of illumination, and proper daylight can increase the comfort. To take full advantage of daylight integration, buildings should have automated controls that either turn off or dim artificial light in response to the available daylight in the space. this is called‘daylight harvesting’.
IP1-S supplies a simple and effective solution for daylight harvesting. connecting to 1-10V interface and using photocell to measure ambient lux level and automatically calculate how much artificial light is needed, and then convert the amount of light to 1-10V dimmable control gears (ballasts or LED drivers). 1-10V dimmable control gears adjust the lighting output according to the signal from the daylight sensor.
