Description

Plug-&-play sensor measures light intensity (lux). Measuring moonlight to natural sunlight (0–83,000 lux, indoors), sensor helps protect high-value assets from excessive sun exposure. Also used in greenhouses.

The standard version of this sensor is powered by two replaceable 1.5 V AA sized batteries (included with purchase). This sensor is also available with a line power option. The line powered version of this sensor has a barrel power connector allowing it to be powered by a standard 3.0 - 3.6 V power supply (Included with Line Power option upgrade). The line powered version also uses two standard 1.5 V AA batteries as backup for uninterrupted operation in the event of line power outage.

Power options must be selected at time of purchase, as the internal hardware of the sensor must be changed to support the selected power requirements.



Features

  • Highly sensitive photodiode.
  • Good for light sensitive applications.

  * Actual range may vary depending on environment.
** Battery life is determined by sensor reporting frequency and other variables.
