A unique battery-powered plug-and-play sensor that speeds and simplifies installation to provide maximum lighting control flexibility and energy savings in industrial applications has been introduced by Dialight.

Designed to integrate seamlessly with any Dialight smart lighting system, the wireless sensor can be placed virtually anywhere within a facility, without the need to install or move cabling, for nearly unlimited lighting control options. A single sensor can be programmed to control multiple lights and groups of lights, eliminating the need to install a sensor on every light.

Using pyroelectric infrared technology, the sensor can instantly switch a single light or a group of lights from off to on or from a dimmed state to on when motion is detected for full visibility and brightness only when needed, greatly reducing on-time and power consumption. Multiple sensors can be linked to a single Dialight gateway to manage several (or up to 100) nodes (sensors and lights) from a single wall controller.

Programmable dimming and customisable timeout options allow facilities to configure fixture on-time for each sensor at one-minute intervals. Lights can be programmed to remain on for up to 30 minutes once motion is no longer detected and then dim or turn off instantly.

Auto-detect technology instantly recognises new sensors on the network upon activation for fast and easy configuration. In addition, each light and sensor in the network can be securely monitored and configured remotely from anywhere through the Dialight cloud-based gateway portal using a tablet, laptop or smartphone.

The wireless occupancy sensor is available in two lens types. A wide-angle lens detects motion up to 30 feet at a 120° angle, suitable for ceiling mount applications to cover a larger footprint for general area lighting. The long-range lens detects motion up to 100 feet away at a narrow 10° angle, best suited for wall mounting and aisle coverage.
