What is nLight?
nLight is a revolutionary digital architecture and
networking technology that cost-effectively integrates
time-based, daylight-based, sensor-based and manual
lighting controls.
How does nLight work?
nLight networks together intelligent digital devices
including occupancy sensors, photocells, power
packs, wall switches, dimmers, panels, and even
luminaires; creating a system with an unmatched
level of “distributed intelligence”
What is Distributed Intelligence?
• Digitally Addressable
• Locally makes switching & dimming
control decisions
• Self-Commissioning
• Stand-alone Operation

Zones are daisy-chain wired (in any order)
May have a single device
May have several different device types
May have multiple devices of the same type
Can be sub-divided into 16 channels of occupancy,
photocell, and switch control
 Functions stand-alone if disconnected from
Gateway/SensorView
Zones and Channels
 Every nLight zone has 16 occupancy channels, 16 photocell channels, and 16 switch
channels on which to communicate information
 Any device with a sensor, photocell, and/or
switch can broadcast each type of
information on one respective channel
(2 pole devices can broadcast of two
channels simultaneously)
 Any device with a relay and/or dimming
output can listen (track) on one or more of
each information type’s channels
simultaneously
Zones and Channels - Example
Example:
Classroom with 4 circuits of lights (3 main rows of lights, 1 white board light)
–
Two occupancy sensors are needed to cover space (turn off all lights)
–
One dimming photocell to control two rows only
–
Four switches enabling individual controls of all rows and whiteboard

Bridge
Bridge
 Powering provided by PS 150 power supply connected via terminal
connections
 Installation
– Mounts to 4”x4” box
– Serial number is on outside of unit
(the reason for this is covered in
commissioning section)
– The fewer the bridges deep the
better (see handout on trees)
– Pushing the button resets bridge
– No loops allowed
Bridge and power supply mount
directly to a 4” x 4” square box
Gateway
Functions
 Local Control Point
– Two gang low voltage device located in
space
– Discovers and maintains database of all
network devices
– Capable of managing 400 devices
indirectly or 32 devices directly
– Typically one per floor
 Network Access Point
–
–
Links Ethernet to nLight network
Contains one Ethernet port and 3 SensorNet ports
 Maintains time clock
 Profile management
–
–
–
Stores all profiles created by SensorView that include a device connected to
Gateway
Sends out new settings to all devices in the Group bound to a particular Profile at
the times specified by that Profile
Enables profiles to be run on-demand
Gateway
Gateway
–
Local powering (via terminal connections using PS 150)
Gateway
 Network connection
– IP address can be fixed or DHCP
– Derives time from network
– Ethernet port connects to buildings LAN
(Local Area Network)
 Security
– Gateway password (set via SensorView)
prevents outside SensorViews from
accessing network
– Once password is set for one Gateway it
is automatically configured as the
password for all current and future
Gateways on the network
– 4 Digit Pin Code is available to enable
locking of Gateway manual interface
 Installation
– Discovery of network is automatic, rediscovery can be forced via MDI
– Mounts to 2-gang low voltage ring

System Powering
 All device and communication power is delivered via the CAT-5 bus that
interconnects zones and Bridges.
 Power is supplied by power packs (nPP16), power supplies (nPS 80),
nPANELs, RTLEDs, and Bridges (via their external power supply)
Typical Power Consumption

System Powering
 Bridges combine system power from zones that are net contributors of power
and distribute it to zones that are net consumers of power

Troubleshooting
LED indications
– Sensors/Photocells
• SOS Blink out if bad communication
– Bridge
• No LED blinks indicates bad cabling
• Rapid blinks indicates discovery
• Persistent and/or periodic rapid flashing means communications issue
(short, cross)
Activity Mode (default)
• Single blink indicates normal polling traffic of zone (Knight Rider sequence)
• Double blink indicates upstream Bridge or Gateway connection
• 4 blinks indicates downstream Bridge or Transceiver
Device Count Mode (press button once to toggle between modes)
• Number of detected devices is blinked out in two digits
– Power Pack
• Interior LED will be solid if it is polling the zone (e.g. Bridge not connected)
• Only one per zone at any time should be polling
• Exterior LED will blink at regular pace to indicate being polled
