Gen 5 Sensor Cables for Control Unit (CU-4E/CU-4D)

Overview

This article explains the different types of cables used for connecting the Control Unit (CU-4E/CU-4D) with the Gen 5 (SU-5E) family of sensors. For the list of all Gen 5 cables, refer to the Cable Spec Sheets.

  1. Fixture Mount Control Unit for 0-10V drivers: CU-4E-FMH,
  2. Nipple Mount External/Internal Control Unit: CU-4E-NME/NMI, for North America only

The Control Unit (CU-4D) applies to the following models:

  1. Fixture Mount Control Unit for DALI drivers: CU-4D-FM, for use in the EU only.

The following sections are categorized based on the type of Gen 5 sensor connected to the Control Unit (CU-4E/CU-4D).

Overview: Gen 5 Sensors Cabling Matrix 

The Sensor Cabling Matrix table provides an overview of the cables needed to connect a Gen 5 sensor to the Control Unit. The table is categorized based on the type of Gen 5 sensor and Control Unit model. 

The maximum cable length between an Enlighted SU-5 sensor (SU-5E or SU-5S) and a CU-4E/CU-4D control unit can be a 300’ CAT5E cable. Multiple cables from different sensors going to different CUs can share the same raceway or cable tray without signal degradation or cross-talk. Maintain the separation of circuits from class 1 wiring per the requirements of the AHJ.

Note: All Enlighted cables are plenum-rated as indicated by the CMP (Communications Multipurpose Plenum), 600 VAC, #24 AWG CAT 3 cables, and UL numbers are indicated on the cable.

Notes:

  • All Ruggedized sensors (-xRx) have integrated 20" cable with connector (RJ12 or RJ45). Note the required cable extensions in the table.
  • Any Gen 5, 2-wire sensor can be connected to function as a fixtureless sensor. For details, refer to the article 2-wire, Install Solutions for Fixtureless Sensors.
  • All IoT, Connected Lighting (CL), and Independent Lighting (IL) product codes for Micro sensor (SU-5E), High Bay, Ruggedized sensors (SU-5S) are covered by the appropriate SU-5E/5S sensor column. Refer to the corresponding Gen 5 Sensor Spec Sheets for the IoT and CL product codes.
