32 nLight Control Zone

33  Zones are daisy-chain wired (in any order)  May have a single device  May have several different device types  May have multiple devices of the same type  Can be sub-divided into 16 channels of occupancy, photocell, and switch control  Functions stand-alone if disconnected from Gateway/SensorView

34 Zones and Channels  Every nLight zone has 16 occupancy channels, 16 photocell channels, and 16 switch channels on which to communicate information  Any device with a sensor, photocell, and/or switch can broadcast each type of information on one respective channel (2 pole devices can broadcast of two channels simultaneously)  Any device with a relay and/or dimming output can listen (track) on one or more of each information type’s channels simultaneously

35 Zones and Channels - Example Example : Classroom with 4 circuits of lights (3 main rows of lights, 1 white board light) –Two occupancy sensors are needed to cover space (turn off all lights) –One dimming photocell to control two rows only –Four switches enabling individual controls of all rows and whiteboard

36 Zones and Channels - Example Physical Connections

37 Zones and Channels - Example Logical Connections

38 Example Zone Designs 1 Circuit - Relay in Power Pack

39 Example Zone Designs 2+ Circuits - Relays in Power Pack

40 Example Zone Designs 2 Distribution Circuits – Relays in both Power Pack and Sensor

41 Example Zone Designs Multi-zone Dimming

42 nLight Network Backbone

43

44

45  Backbone devices include –Bridges –Gateways

46

47 nLight Bridge Functions  Routes Information between upstream Gateways & up to 8 downstream sensor zones  Increases number of lighting zones (128 devices per port)  Acts as both a hub and router of information between zones and Gateway  Redistributes power between zones Physical Specs  8 ports (RJ-45)  Mounts to 4”x4” junction box  Powered via dedicated Power Supply

48 Bridge

49  Installation –Mounts to 4”x4” box –Serial number is on outside of unit (the reason for this is covered in commissioning section) –The fewer the bridges deep the better (see handout on trees) –Pushing the button resets bridge –No loops allowed  Powering provided by PS 150 power supply connected via terminal connections Bridge and power supply mount directly to a 4” x 4” square box

50

51 Gateway Functions  Local Control Point –Two gang low voltage device located in space –Discovers and maintains database of all network devices –Capable of managing 400 devices indirectly or 32 devices directly –Typically one per floor  Profile management –Stores all profiles created by SensorView that include a device connected to Gateway –Sends out new settings to all devices in the Group bound to a particular Profile at the times specified by that Profile –Enables profiles to be run on-demand  Network Access Point –Links Ethernet to nLight network –Contains one Ethernet port and 3 SensorNet ports  Maintains time clock

52 Gateway

53 –Local powering (via terminal connections using PS 150)

54 Gateway  Network connection –IP address can be fixed or DHCP –Derives time from network –Ethernet port connects to buildings LAN (Local Area Network)  Security –Gateway password (set via SensorView) prevents outside SensorViews from accessing network –Once password is set for one Gateway it is automatically configured as the password for all current and future Gateways on the network –4 Digit Pin Code is available to enable locking of Gateway manual interface  Installation –Discovery of network is automatic, rediscovery can be forced via MDI –Mounts to 2-gang low voltage ring

56 Example Network Design

57 Additional Network Design Topics

58 System Powering  All device and communication power is delivered via the CAT-5 bus that interconnects zones and Bridges.  Power is supplied by power packs (nPP16), power supplies (nPS 80), nPANELs, RTLEDs, and Bridges (via their external power supply) Note: WallPod Scene Selectors require 5 mA Wall Switch Sensors with the –NL option require 3.5 mA; Typical Power Consumption ~3mA Power Generation 6 mA nPANEL 40 mA per port RTLED 6 mA total

59 System Powering  Bridges combine system power from zones that are net contributors of power and distribute it to zones that are net consumers of power

60

61 BACnet IP Key Features: Downloadable plug-in to SensorView Enables interfacing with BMS systems via an IP connection Communicates information gathered by nLight to other building systems (such as HVAC) Translates and forwards lighting relay and other select control commands from BMS system to nLight control devices. Demonstrated compatibility to date with Siemens Apogee, Johnson Controls Metasys, and Tridium. Interoperability with other systems will be added as required.
