Simmtronic announce new intelligent universal dual bus sensor with the SPU.6-L


Simmtronic, an independent specialist manufacturer of high-performance lighting control systems, today announce a sophisticated universal sensor which combines high performance presence detection, light level sensing and infra-red control into one compact unit.


Simmtronic has responded to the current trend of narrower luminaires by introducing the SPU.6-L, a new linear narrow body sensor designed to be built into luminaires and track systems.

The SPU.6-L case is specifically designed to align with the common 30mm width of control gear (LED drivers). Provision is made for multiple method of fixing the case, top and bottom surface fixing points and provision for spring clip retention.

The sensor can either plug into an LCM’s DALI line or E-Bus from which both power and communication are achieved. The sensor automatically identifies itself on either bus and continuously reports its status and current readings. SPECS Manager software can uniquely address each sensor and configure each control element to different lighting groups as required. Photocell readings and presence detection history may be dynamically displayed for all sensors connected to the system.

Feature solutions include:

Addressable Intelligent Universal Sensor | Luminaire mountable | 360-degree PIR presence detection | Wide range linear photocell | Programmable infra-red receiver | Flexible configuration via SPECS Manager graphical software | Simple E-Bus or DALI connection | Self-test LED indicator | Low profile compact design

“The device was conceived because our previous small PD became too big with the advent of slimmer LED lights. Architects want clean ceilings in exposed services projects and this new smaller solution fits into most light fittings as it is the same width as the LED Drivers within the light fittings. The unit was designed to be easy to fit with blanking plates, or incorporated in end plates in light fittings, with lots of mounting options provided to facilitate easy installation within light fittings,” said Simmtronic Sales Director, Mario Costanzo.

“Designed to fit into the RIDI pre-wired LINIA trunking system, this system is proving popular for CAT A office fit-outs and combined with Simmtronic’s solid presence in the commercial interior market, we believe this is a perfect solution for providing a fast fix lighting and control system,” said RIDI Managing Director, Michael Attard.
