Can you connect a Nordlux Sensor to other lamps?
No, you cannot, as the sensor in the Nordlux lamp does not have an extra connection.
Does Nordlux have light fixtures for which it is possible to configure the sensor?
Yes, this manual adjustment is possible on 3 of our outdoor lamps in the Tin range and 2 of our indoor ceiling lamps Ash and Montone:
1. Time regulation, for how long you want the light to stay on.
2. Light level, when the light should come on in relation to the daylight from the sun.
3. The sensitivity for when the sensor should be activated
These setting options are described in the accompanying manual.
What to do, if the sensor lamp is on constantly?
Try to turn the lamp on and off 2 times quickly. If this does not remedy the problem the sensor may be defective.
What sensor types are there? How does a sensor lightfixture work?
There are several different sensor types, but the most commonly used sensor types in connection with lighting are either a so-called PIR sensor (Pyroelectric Infrared Sensor) or a Microwave sensor. The first-mentioned sensor type senses when a warm object (human or animal) moves in the sensor’s area. When the sensor is activated, the light will turn on for a period that is predetermined (set) or you can decide the interval / set how long you want the light to be turned on after the sensor has registered people or animals in the area. The sensor’s area is stated on the user manual or on the packaging.
The microwave sensor sends out microwaves, which are thrown back to the sensor (like an echo sounder) when they hit an object that is moving within a given range. When the waves are registered by the sensor, the light turns on for a period that can also be set to a determined period of time.
Outdoor sensor lamps - Manual override
This video explains on which Nordlux outdoor sensor lamps "manual override" can be used, so that the lamp will illuminate continuously for 3 hours. In addition, a test setup shows how the setting is performed in practice.
