Diagram depicts Plug Load Controller Connections to both Switched and Unswitched Loads. Download PDF.

  1. The application shown below represents using the Plug Load Controller (PLC) to control switched portions of a wall receptacle circuit. The switched portion of these receptacles are controlled by the PLC communicating with the overhead sensors as part of the same Motion Group.
  2. Energy usage is metered and reported to the Enlighted Manage software for both the switched and unswitched portions of the PLC.
  3. The PLC is also capable of circuit level control of other types of electrical circuits subject to the load limits listed on the Electrical Ratings table shown below. This circuit level control can be accomplished by using occupancy inputs from sensors or by using a Time of Day profile programmed into the PLC.
  4. The total combined output Amps of both the switched and unswitched portions of the PLC cannot exceed the output rating of the switched portion of the PLC listed in the Electrical Rating table shown below.
  5. The PLC is a wireless device and it can not be installed inside a metal enclosure or underneath a raised floor. The PLC requires wireless communication with the Sensors and Gateway to function. Any metal or concrete structures between the PLC, Sensors and Gateway will negatively impact wireless communication.
