Sensors & Timer clocks

Timer Clocks

All Philips Dynalite timer clocks are true astronomical 365 day clocks with sunrise/ sunset tracking, automatic daylight saving adjustment and powerful macro and conditional logic functions. The timer clock interfaces with other devices over the DyNet RS485 network to automate tasks and trigger timed based events. It may be used as an energy management controller or simply to select scenes at preset times of the day or week.
The timer clock is powerful enough to provide full automation of a large commercial project and can be programmed with events that automatically run at the specified time.



A typical application would entail automatically adjusting lighting levels throughout the day within a restaurant for breakfast, lunch, dinner, evening entertainment and cleaning, using long fade time to ensure a disruption free and smooth work cycle. If required, a local button press on a panel can override the pre-programmed events until the next timed event occurs. In energy management applications, the timer clock can set the operating mode of other devices, such as Philips Dynalite sensors’ motion time-out, so that in afterhours a shorter time-out can be set, ensuring the lights are not left burning when not required. 


Sensors

Offering the ability to interact with project spaces passively, the Philips Dynalite sensor range brings the features of motion detection, light level detection and IR receive into one unit.
Each of these features can be operating at the same time, allowing automation scenarios such as turning on the lights after detecting motion and then dimming the lighting level once the available sun light has been measured, providing additional energy savings.
After the area has been unoccupied for the predetermined time, the lights will then switch off. By combining each of these functions into one device, operational efficiency is improved, helping reduce the requirement for many different types of sensors cluttering the ceiling space.



Each sensor has an inbuilt microprocessor, allowing for logical functions to control one small room, the floor of a building or an entire building. In applications such as office buildings, lecture theatres and homes, the Philips Dynalite universal sensor can be utilized to detect motion and switch on the lights. All sensors receive their power from the DyNet network and as they are fully remotely programmable, they can be configured to automate and control virtually an unlimited number of controlled outputs.
