What is nLight? nLight is a networked digital lighting control system that provides both energy savings & increased user configurability by cost effectively integrating time-based, daylight-based, sensor-based & manual lighting control schemes.
How does nLight work? nLight networks together intelligent digital devices including occupancy sensors, photocells, power packs, wall switches, dimmers, panels, and even luminaires; creating a system with an unmatched level of “distributed intelligence”
What is Distributed Intelligence? Digitally Addressable - Locally makes switching & dimming control decisions – no central controller Self-Commissioning Stand-alone Operation
nLight Devices Model numbers start with the letter “n” RJ-45 style communication ports All devices consist of one or more of basic lighting control components o sensor o relay o manual control station o dimmer DEFINITION: A device having the ability to communicate over an nLight network.
Example Combinations of Lighting Control Elements Lighting Control Elements Sensor Relay Manual Control Station Dimmer Model Number Examples OccupancyPhotocell nCM PC nCM 9 nCM 9 ADC nCMR 9 ADC nPODM nPODM D nPODMR D nWSX nIO D nPP16 nPP16 D
GTL SERIES nLight-enabled Luminaire Families (w/ integrated nIO or nPP16 D) DEFINITION: A luminaire with a factory installed nLight device. More added all the time!
nLight Control Zone Zones are wired together using CAT-5e cable (in any order, daisy-chain recommended) May have a single or several different devices types May have multiple devices of the same type Can be sub-divided into 16 local groups (channels) of occupancy, photocell, and switch control Functions stand-alone if disconnected from Gateway/SensorView DEFINITION: A collection of nLight devices and nLight-enabled luminaires that function together in order to control a space’s lighting.
