Gen 5 Sensor Wiring Test Results

Download the Gen 5 Sensor Wiring Test report for the various sensor firmware releases. 

The Sensor LED indicates the Wiring Test results after the wiring test has been run.  In addition to the table below, you can find the LED indicator patterns for specific firmware versions in the Firmware release notes for that version.  Links in the table below provide access to the FW release notes.  In general,   

  • Solid GREEN indicates that the wiring test is completed, the sensor is waiting to be discovered.
  • Blinking BLUE indicates that the wiring test is completed and it did not detect an energy metering device.
  • Blinking RED indicates the test is complete with a few exceptions corresponding to a common error state. This could be due to any of the following reasons:
    • The fixture power level is too low, and the power change is too small to be deemed different enough.
    • In a few fixture designs, a non-dimmable driver is connected. The fixture does not support dimming and needs ON/OFF control from the sensor.
    • The driver power efficiency is low, which rendered the power consumption of total output vs. low dim level output to be both at a high overhead power consumption level, which narrowed down the power consumption differences among the different dimming setting levels, and 
    •  If none of the above, it may be due to wrong wiring, which the fixture manufacturer needs to troubleshoot.

The report describes the lighting sequence for the sensor wiring test when powered on and the LED status at the end of the wiring test.

Gen 5 Sensor Wiring Test Results for Sensor Firmware
Lighting Sequence and Sensor LED Behavior
Version: 4.0 as of Oct 14, 2021

*Note: with multiple DALI drivers connected to an Enlighted 2-wire sensor, each of the drivers will go through the "Power ON Lighting Sequence" one by one, and at the end of the last driver finishing the sequence, the sensor will indicate the test result as "End of Wiring Test LED Behavior" shows.

CU includes the following devices, CU-4E-FMH, CU-4E-NMI, CU-4E-NME and DALI CU

Configuring Contact Closure Devices in Manage

Enlighted offers external hardware contact closure devices that can connect to the Manage server located within the building's premises. Manage supports the Barionet 50 Contact Closure devices. The Barionet 50 accepts four input controls; each input control can be programmed to perform an action when the trigger goes from open to close (0 to 1). When the trigger goes back from close to open (1 to 0), no action is programmed to be taken by the Contact Closure. 

For installing and configuring the Contact Closure device, and TCP port, contact Enlighted Support.

Note: The Contact Closure must get the IP address only from Manage DHCP.  This applies to all models: Manage, Midrange Manage, Enterprise Manage. Refer to the Manage Spec Sheets.

Also, ensure that the Contact Closure runs VB2.02 and above; otherwise, download the latest version from www.barix.com. While configuring the device, the TCP Port must be set to 12302.  

Each Contact Closure input can be programmed to perform any of the following actions when the trigger goes from open to close (0 to 1).

  1. Set all Fixtures in Manage to a Percentage (1-100%): When the contact closure is triggered, all lights configured in Manage can be set to a light level value between 1 to 100 percent. Lights are full-on at 100.
  2. Set all Fixtures in Switch Group to a Scene: Based on the lighting profiles configured for fixtures belonging to a switch group for a scene, the Contact Closure returns all fixture light lights defined for the scene. 
  3. Set all Fixtures in Manage to Auto Mode: Based on the lighting profiles configured for fixtures in Manage, the Contact Closure returns all lights to their assigned fixture profiles. 
  4. Set all Fixtures in Switch Group to Auto Mode: Based on the lighting profiles configured for fixtures belonging to a switch group, the Contact Closure returns all lights to their assigned fixture.
  5. Do Nothing: When the Contact Closure is triggered, it takes no action.

Discovering Contact Closure Devices

After a Contact Closure is installed and configured, navigate to Administration > Contact Closure Configuration menu. To discover the Contact Closure device, check the Enable box to enable the Contact Closure devices and click Save.

Note: The Discover button appears on the screen only after the Save button is clicked.

1_CC_Enable.png

Click the Discover button to discover all Barionet Contact Closure devices in the network. The discovered Contact Closure devices are listed along with the MAC and IP addresses, as shown below.

2_CC_Discovered.png

Programming Contact Closure Devices

  1. Click the Edit button to program a Contact Closure.
  2. Select an Action for each input. If Set all Fixtures in Switch Group to a percentage is selected, select one or more switches from the Switch Group drop-down.
  3. Enter a value in the Duration column indicating the length of time to hold the Action.
  4. Repeat the steps above for each input of the Contact Closure device.
  5. Click the Save button.

Note: When multiple inputs are triggered simultaneously, the last input received by Manage will take priority.

Using the RJ45 Cable Splitter to Power Two Sensors from a Single Source

Overview

This article describes the usage of the RJ45 Cable Splitter (CBL-CS-RJ45) to power two sensors from a single light fixture. Only one of the sensors will be able to control the light fixture, the second sensor gets power only and must be configured as a fixtureless sensor. 

RJ-45 Cable Splitter (CBL-CS-RJ45) Connections

The CBL-CL-RJ45 is shown below. The provided 6-inch RJ45 cable plugs into the side of the splitter with a single RJ45 connector. The other end of the RJ45 cable plugs into the Control Unit or power interface to the driver/light fixture.

Cable.png

The two sensor ports on the other side of the splitter connect directly to the sensors. The SU/SIG port supports a connection with signaling for lighting control and must be connected to the sensor controlling the light fixture. The SG/PWR port only provides power to the connected sensor and does not control the light fixture. These connections are depicted below.

Note that the sensor LED of uncommissioned sensors connected to the SG/PWR port will blink blue or red to indicate that no metering device was found.
