nLIGHT DEVICE A native nLight device is individually addressable and has the ability to digitally communicate over an nLight network. Device types include occupancy sensors, photocells, power/relay packs, wall switches, dimmers, panels, and specialty i/o devices. nLIGHT ENABLED LUMINAIRE Many luminaires are available "nLight Enabled," meaning they have a factory installed nLight device that communicates for the fixture. Look for the nLight Enabled logo on luminaire data sheets. nLIGHT CONTROL ZONE An nLight Control Zone is a collection of nLight devices and nLight Enabled luminaires that function together in order to control a space's lighting. It is recommended that there be one control zone per room, however large areas (such as open offices) may require two or more zones. Zones can also be subdivided via programming to cover several small rooms. Once wired, a zone will self-commission and begin to function as a standalone system. nLIGHT BACKBONE The communication network that interconnects zones in an nLight network is called the backbone. A backbone is required in order to deploy remote or time-based commands, (such as a scheduled override), out to a device, groups of devices, or zone(s). Additionally, advanced features, such as performance monitoring and interfacing with higher level BMS systems, require the end-to-end network connectivity that the backbone provides. A backbone is typically made up of nLight Bridge and Gateway devices wired together with CAT-5e cabling, although utilization of a WiFi network is an optional method of providing a backbone. nLIGHT 961 PSG11 nLIGHT SENSOR SWITCH SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE TM B A C K B O N E nLight Control System
