How to achieve primary and secondary zone Daylight Harvesting with one Paradigm Light Sensor (P-LS)


A single Paradigm Light Sensor (P-LS) is only capable of controlling a single scope of control (channel, group, or space). The P-LS is capable of monitoring two different lux values from a primary and secondary "zone" by adding a remote sensor head. The remote head's wire pair lands on the header labeled 'optional sensor' on the sensor's PCB. The sensor will monitors values from both heads and creates a single averaged value that is sent to the Paradigm processor (P-ACP) to harvest the channel, group or space. Program the sensor as usual in LightDesigner, there is no need for additional programming since this functionality is coded directly into the unit's firmware.

If true discrete control of separate lighting zones is needed, a P-LS station for each zone is required, each with different target lux levels to maintain the desired light level across the space.
