The Dimmable Sensor Driver is an Essential Component of a Smart Lighting System
The dimmable sensor driver is an essential component of a smart lighting system. The driver allows you to control the brightness of LED lighting based on the presence or absence of a sensor.
For example, lighting in a parking garage could be dimmed to low levels at night and brought back up to brighter levels when a motion sensor or occupancy sensor detects someone present.
MC601V Motion Sensor
HomeKit motion sensors are a great way to control your lights, but they can quickly become frustrating if you don’t have the right settings configured. That’s why we developed the MC601V Motion Sensor, which offers several features to help make your smart lighting system run smoothly.
The MC601V is an innovative and active motion detector that uses the 5.8GHz HF dimmable sensor driver system to detect movement through plastic, glass and thin non-metal materials. In addition, the MC601V can work with dimmable LED drivers or ballasts to achieve a 3-step dimming function. This is especially useful for areas where a light change notice must be given before the lights are completely turned off. Additionally, the MC601V can be used in conjunction with a stand-alone daylight sensor and implement daylight harvesting, allowing the lighting system to automatically control your artificial light in response to the available daylight in your space.
In addition to its energy saving capabilities, the MC601V also works with Aqara’s Smart Control app to allow for fine-tuned configuration of how your lights are controlled. With Smart Control, you can set up multiple time frames that control how your lights respond to motion. This feature makes the MC601V an ideal choice for a smarter, more intuitive lighting system.
MC601V Daylight Sensor
The MC601V Daylight Sensor uses the latest in LED technology to create a small but powerful device that can dim the lights to an impressively low level when motion is detected, resulting in energy savings without sacrificing the quality of light. Featuring a high-speed HF system 5.8GHz, this innovative light switch enables a wide detection area and can be easily fixed within most luminaires. When combined with a dimmable sensor driver or ballast, it can also boast an impressive 3 step dimming function that will likely be the envy of the office. The most impressive feature is that the sensor can be configured to also operate in reverse – it will illuminate the room when no movement is detected, so it’s not just an LED novelty.
MC601V Corridor Sensor
The MC601V is a ceiling mounted PIR motion detector designed for narrow spaces, like corridors. It has an impressive HF system that can detect motion through plastic, glass and thin non-metal materials. The sensor features a three-step dimming function and a built-in light sensor. It can also be combined with a 1-10V dimmable LED driver or ballast to achieve the most impressive lighting controls. It can even match up with the Merrytek MS01, our stand-alone light sensor for the best and most cost effective lighting control solution in any space. It is an impressive device that uses the latest in wireless technology and can be controlled by a remote (EM MAN DM0). The battery-free, energy saving MC601V will save up to 30 percent on your electricity bill without compromising comfort.
The MC601V is an innovative active sensor which can be mounted high up to 39ft (12m) and has a wide detection area of 25ft (8m). It uses the third generation Merrytek technology with HF system 5.8GHz and motion is detected through plastic, glass or thin non-metal materials. It can be used with dimmable LED drivers or ballasts to achieve 3-step dimming function, perfect for use in areas where light change notice is required dimmable sensor driver before the light totally switches off. It also has a 1-10V interface which can match up with Merrytek stand-alone daylight sensor MS01, and it can implement daylight harvesting, allowing the lighting system to have automated controls that either turn off or dim artificial light in response to the available daylight in the space.
The MC601V can be set for automatic switching or dimming by setting the detection area, time delay and daylight threshold via DIP switches. It is ideal for corridors with multiple lights and can be easily fixed within most luminaires.
