Add and Manage Fixtures

A variety of ballasts and bulbs are available in the market. The fixture database maintains and tracks the most complete, up-to-date, manufacturer-specific information. The database is organized into three categories:

  1. Ballasts: Add a Ballast
  2. Bulbs: Add a Bulb
  3. Fixture Type: Add a Fixture Type

For adding any type of fixture, navigate to Administration-> System Management -> Fixture Type Management. The following screen appears with a list of fixture types allowing you to add or manage the various fixture types. When the Show Used Ballasts box is checked, the list of ballasts at the selected facility is displayed.

Adding a Fixture Type

See article Adding a Fixture Type

By default, the fixtures added to the database are not assigned to facilities, and so the next step is to assign the fixtures you added to a facility.  Refer to the article Assigning Facility to a Fixture Type.

Only the fixture types assigned to the facility are displayed in the drop-down list when assigning the fixture type to a sensor. See Assigning Fixture Type to Sensors.
