Control Units (CU-4)

The Enlighted Fixture Mount Control Unit (CU) interfaces with Enlighted sensors and ballast or LED driver to intelligently control light behavior.

Available Control Units:

  1. Fixture Mount Control Unit for 0-10V drivers:  
    Control Unit (CU-4E-FMH) Spec Sheet. The CU is mounted inside an enclosure. 
  2. Nipple Mount External/Internal Control Unit (North America only):
    Control Unit (CU-4E-NME/NMI) Spec Sheet. Intended for field installations, mounted on the side in the junction box using the nipple, or mounted outside of the fixture. Two versions are available, NME (Nipple mount external), where the sensor is external to the fixture, NMI (Nipple mount internal). the sensor is mounted internal to the fixture. 
  3. Fixture Mount Control Unit for DALI drivers (Europe only): in support of our traditional 8-pin sensors and enabling hardware energy metering of traditional DALI drivers, the Fixture Mount Control Unit for DALI drivers is available ONLY in the EU countries accepting the CE mark.  Please note that the  Control Unit for DALI incorporates the DALI PSU, so there is no need to procure a separate PSU.  The Control Unit for DALI does NOT support Tunable White (DT8) or Emergency Lighting (DT1) functions, but it has the ability to meter energy.

  • What is different with the D-Link PoE switch than the previous switches?

    The D-Link PoE switch is larger than the previous switches and can support higher PoE wattage devices (PoE Budget of 130 Watts), such as People Counting sensors.
  • Is there any Registration or special programming required to use this switch?

    The D-Link switch is an Out-of-the-Box switch that does not require any Registration or manual setup.
  • The switch has two SFP ports available. Can those ports be used?

    Enlighted supports using the managed ports numbered 1 through 8 only.  Ports 9 & 10 (SFP Ports) should not be used, and the plugs in those ports should not be removed. Daisey Chaining multiple switches through the managed ports is allowed.  Daisey Chaining through the SFP ports is not supported by Enlighted.
  • What are the options for mounting this switch?

    The images show the Rack Mount and Wall Mount options using the mounting bracket that comes with the switch. Also, install rubber pads if the PoE switch is going to be placed on a Desk or flat surface.

Plug Load Controller (PC‐xx‐20)

The Enlighted Plug Load Controller (PLC) transforms receptacles in 20A circuits to controlled and metered smart receptacles for energy-efficient and code-compliant plug load control.

Spec Sheets

View or download the required Spec sheet:

Best Practices:

  • PLCs are installed near the outlet or load they control, and they must be wired properly to the outlet.
  • Place the PLC in the electrical closet or near an electrical panel for easy access and visibility.
  • Plug Load Controller should be installed within the gateway's wireless range and close to any sensor of the group they belong to.
  • PLCs need to hear from only one sensor and do not need to hear from all sensors in the group.
  • The controlling sensor should belong to the same motion group to which the Gateway is assigned. Make sure the sensor is placed near the closet.
  • For floor outlets, the PLC must not be buried in the floor.
