Battery-Powered Photosensor Provides Natural Light Sensing

August 20, 2015 By Linda Hardesty

CrestronCrestron is now shipping a new battery-powered photosensor that provides natural light sensing and indoor light control for daylight harvesting applications.

The GLS-LDL-EX-BATT dual-loop photosensor features two internal photocells – one for open-loop daylight sensing and one for closed-loop ambient light sensing. The GLS-LDL-EX-BATT monitors natural daylight from windows, automatically adjusting shades and lighting to optimize natural light reducing energy usage while maintaining the comfort and convenience of the space and its occupants.

The battery-powered photosensor can be mounted in a variety of places and communicates with a Crestron control system via an infiNET EX wireless network. The sensor can be mounted to drywall with an anchor and screw, to a drop ceiling or lighting fixture with a magnetic strip, or in a temporary location with adhesive tape. For ceiling mounts, the entire photosensor snaps into a mounting plate that can rotate up to 40 degrees after being secured in place, allowing its position to be fine-tuned after installation.
