Abstract

This issue of Specifier Reports updates information reported in Specifier Reports: Photosensors, originally published in 1998. Photosensor technology has advanced significantly since that report was published. The new report presents the findings of testing conducted by NLPIP on the latest photosensor products and provides information to assist in the selection, setup, and general understanding of photosensors. It includes datasheets on each photosensor product tested and discussed by NLPIP. A growing desire to create sustainable buildings has led to the current trend in building design of increasing emphasis on daylit spaces that use lighting controls to reduce electrical energy needs. Therefore, interest in photosensors has increased dramatically.
