Description Function and application The “SOLAR” presence sensor detects the presence of people and measures the intensity of ambient light. The energy supply for the presence sensor is provided by solar cells or, if daylight or artificial light is insufficient, by batteries. SOLAR The radio control system is primarily used to extend existing electrical installations without additional cabling. Function The values measured by the presence sensor (motion, light value) are transmitted to the “Switch RC” radio receiver via a radio signal. The measured light value depends on the incidence of daylight, the artificial lighting and the properties of the surface (light/dark). The presence sensor is only ensured to function in combination with the radio receiver. All switching functions and parameter settings of the presence sensor are executed via the radio receiver. The following parameters can be set for every presence sensor programmed for the radio receiver: • Delay (switch-off delay time if no motion is detected) • Light value • Mode Presence sensor (light and motion sensor) Fitting instructions Note: More information on the parameter settings can be found in the separate instructions for the „Switch RC“ radio receiver. Energy supply from solar cells/batteries If daylight or artificial light is sufficient, the sensor is powered by solar cells. For immediate operation, the energy storage unit must first be charged for approx. 5 minutes at a minimum of 50 – 100 lux. For light value measurement to function properly, the energy storage unit must be charged for several days at a minimum of 50 – 100 lux. The “Test” button can be used to check the operational readiness of the presence sensor; see “Testing the operational readiness”. The presence sensor can optionally be operated with batteries if, for example, the sensor is located in a room with a very low light value (< 50 lux). Construction A The presence sensor is made up of the following components: • “ LRN” button (A) for programming the presence sensor for the radio receiver G • Taste “Test”LRN button (B) for sending a test signal E B • Light sensor (C) Taste Test • Motion sensor (D) Lichtsensor F C • Solar cells (E) Test • LED “Test” LED (F) for monitoring the operational readiness • Housing (G) with battery compartment E D Installation Safety instructions The presence sensor must only be installed and put into operation by a qualified electrician. The applicable safety regulations and accident prevention regulations must be observed. CAUTION! Danger of damage to solar cells! • Avoid direct sunlight. • Do not cover the solar cells (e.g. with paint) or touch them with your fingers. • Clean the solar cells with a soft cloth by applying light pressure only.

Selecting the installation location Installation (cont.) Note the following when selecting an installation location: • Do not install the presence sensor on the floor or close to the floor. Optimum installation height = 2 – 3 m. The higher the sensor is installed, the greater its detection range and the lower its sensitivity: – Installation height 2.5 m: Diameter of detection range = 5 m – Installation height 3 m: Diameter of detection range = 6 m • Do not install the presence sensor in a metal housing or close to metal objects (< 10 cm) to avoid disturbance of the radio signals. • Maintain a minimum distance of 0.5 m to high frequency devices (e.g. audio and video systems, computers, ECG for light sources). • Avoid exposing the solar cells to direct sunlight. Procedure Note: program the presence sensor for the radio receiver and set the parameters; see the separate instructions for the „Switch RC“ radio receiver. Install the presence sensor as follows: Charge the energy storage unit (solar cells) for approx. 5 minutes at a minimum of 50 – 100 lux. Optional: insert batteries. Attach the included mounting plate over the detection area; see “Selecting the installation location”. Position the presence sensor on the mounting plate and turn it until it engages.
