T-8 High-Bay Fixtures
Viewpoint offers a family of
infrared motion sensors designed for fluorescent high bay
fixtures employing one, two or three electronic ballasts. To
maintain rated lamp life, fixtures should be equipped with
programmed rapid start (PRS) ballasts.
When aisles are empty the fixture’s power
output is reduced by removing AC line voltage from selected
ballasts. The number of ballasts that remain powered in the
absence of motion (usually one ballast or none) can be
configured on a fixture-by-fixture basis and stored in the
sensor’s non-volatile memory. No programming tools are
Viewpoint can also supply sensors that are
optimized for use with continuously-dimmable fluorescent
electronic ballasts. These sensors control a ballast dimming
pin rather than removing AC line voltage to the ballast.
Extends Lamp Life
Competing sensors for fluorescent
fixtures offer only one switching relay, so you’re forced to
turn the fixture completely off or leave one ballast powered
in the absence of motion. One continuously-powered ballast
means re-lamping the fixture frequently and uneven lamp wear.
Viewpoint’s fluorescent sensors can be
ordered with three built-in relays that rotate the choice of
powered ballast in the “night-light mode”. Ballast rotation
equalizes lamp life and eliminates premature re-lamping.
Plug ‘n’ Go
Installation on Compatible Fixtures
manufacturers can provide Plug ‘n’ Go fluorescent fixtures
with a Viewpoint-compatible sensor port already installed.
These fixtures operate at full rated wattage until you install
a sensor. Adding a motion sensor to a Plug ‘n’ Go fixture
takes just a screwdriver and 60 seconds of labor.
