Photocontrol incorporates radio monitoring of atomic clock.

January 16, 2009

Offered as integrated twist-lock photocontrol, PhotoClock® also incorporates radio receiver for continual synchronization with national atomic clock (NIST). This achieves precise time of day control for outdoor lighting while also providing turn-on at dusk and turn-off at dawn functionality. Solution addresses directives that concern areas of conserving energy, minimizing light pollution/trespass, and maintaining nighttime safety. Read More

Photo Control suits parking lot, sign, and street lights.

May 10, 2004

Intended for applications where outside lights do not have to be on all night, Model ESC 124DS is rated for 1,000 W tungsten, 1,800 Va lamp load and will operate over 105-285 Vac. It has 3-prong locking-type plug base, which is used in matching NEMA receptacle for street lighting. Solid-state design enables control to turn outside lights on by change of natural light level and off at predetermined time. Off time is set by screw adjustments on base. Read More
