A ‘plug and play’ answer to lighting controls

Electrical industry folklore has it that lighting controls are complicated and suitable only for large projects. This is untrue, says Thorn, as it introduces SensaModular, a simple 'plug-and-play' dimming solution for single room applications that is capable of taking in and responding to sensors and other interfaces, without the need for extra commissioning tools.

A ‘plug and play’ answer to lighting controls

Central to the system is the SensaModular controller which processes the inputs from the sensors, photocells, scene plates, switches and handheld IR devices to operate up to three groups of luminaires, creating ideal conditions for daylight-linking, presence-linking and scene setting. The
device can automatically detect and operate DSI or DALI ballasts, or any combination thereof (up to 50 DSI or 25 DALI ballasts per group), and two screwdriver adjustable rotary switches set the operation mode (‘On/Off’, ‘only Off’ or ‘On/Corridor’) and off delay time for the presence-link function. This makes commissioning quick, easy and safe. The controller comes in two sizes: for two or three luminaire groups.

Thorn is hoping that its new range will open up new markets for dimming applications - particularly in offices, schools, leisure buildings and warehouses.
