Integrated IP Sensor
Integrated Occupancy and Photocell Sensors
With the lighting load of a commercial building accounting for
around 30% of the energy to run it, reducing the lighting load
through controls and daylight harvesting can have a significant
effect in reducing the energy consumed. This is a win win where
the building operator reduces running costs, the occupant receives
an improved lighting scheme and it is also of benefit to the
Full dimming and daylight harvesting functions are provided by the
Intelligent Lighting System described on page 459 and the LCM
on page 494.
Standard Height Intergrated IP Sensor
The IP sensor provides basic PIR occupancy detection and a
photocell for daylilght threshold switching.
The daylight threshold is set so the sensor will hold off the
luminaire if there is sufficient ambient light.
If there is insufficient ambienet light and occupancy is detected
by the PIR the luminaire will be switched on. The luminaire will
remain on while occupancy is detected and then for the set time
delay after no further occupancy.
Setting the time delay and light level threshold is achieved by 2
rotary potentiometer on the sensor head.
The standard sensors have a recommended mounting height
of up to 3m and create a detection cone with a diameter of 2 x
mounting height on the floor for seated activity, 2.4 x mounting
height for walking towards the sensor and up to 4 x mounting
height for walking across the detection zone.
Common Features of the Standard and Intergrated ‘IP’
• Elegant sensor head linked to a slimline control module via RJ
plug for simple integration into luminaires
• The sensor heads are retained by simple spring clips in the
requisite hole cut out of ~ 28mmØ
• A photocell for threshold light level switching control with
adjustment from 10 to 2000 lux via the rotary potentiometer on
the sensor head
• They can be stand alone within a luminaire or operate as
master/slaves with appropriate wiring (available on request)
• The master slave arrangement takes the lux reading of the
master only, the slaves operate on occupancy only
It is recommended to position the master furthest from the
natural light so as not to cause slave luminaires to be over
• The time delay can be set between 15 seconds and 30 minutes
using the rotary potentiometer on the sensor head
• The ambient temperature range is -25° to +50° (luminaire
ambient range may differ)
Luminaire Range Compatibility
The ‘IP’ sensor is a standard option on Crompack 5 battens and
Modulay recessed luminaires used with louvre accessories.
It provides switching with occupancy on HF control gear and can
invoke “corridor function” when used with compatible dimming
