Ultra efficient 28W LED total wattage

Up to 107 LPCW Lumens per circuit watt

Up to 60 % additional energy saving

Skytile® Sense has been developed to ensure minimal energy usage and that only the required light output is supplied.

Our Skytile® Sense Microwave presence detection option ensures that frequently vacant areas are only fully illuminated when in use, cutting down unnecessary energy usage. With various step dim and hold time options, it is ideal for corridors, toilets and unused offices.

The Skytile® Sense Daylight Harvesting option ensures only the right amount of light is supplied to the room. Using intelligent sensors that detect UV light, Skytile® Sense Daylight Harvesting dims the fitting down based on the natural light that enters the room, making it ideal for rooms that have large windows. The installer simply sets the required Lux level on the working plane on the intuitive dip switch design, and the panel does the rest, further reducing energy use and ensuring the workplace is adequately lit.

Integrated Sensor Technology

Combined led driver & sensor

The integrated driver-sensor simply attaches to the back of the Skytile® using magnets, creating an effortless installation. The technology used within the integrated driver-sensor allows detection through the panel, meaning no additional sensors or cutouts are required.

Microwave Presence Detection

Significantly reduce running costs

Presence detectors ensure that areas are only lit when occupied and are therefore one of the best ways to significantly reduce running costs. Skytile® Sense integrated driver technology uses microwaves to detect presence through the back of the LED panel controlling the LED panel when occupancy is detected.

  • Variable detection diameter

    • Wide and narrow detection area
    • Suitable for office and corridor applications
  • Microwave presence detection

    • Step dimming from 10-50%
    • Variable hold time and standby period
  • Integrated sensor technology

    • Combined LED driver and microwave sensor
    • Single point installation, no commissioning required
  • Group wiring

    • Fittings wired in synchronised banks
    • Seamless workplace integration

How presence detection works

When presence is no longer detected, the panel will automatically dim down and depending on settings pre-selected by the user; the panel will stay at a low light level or switch off fully. To ensure sensor technology is integrated seamlessly into the workplace environment, the panels can be wired in banks so that the panels are synchronised with one another.

Wired in Synchronised Banks

Intelligent Office Lighting

Control what lights turn on once a sensor picks up movement by wiring the panels in one or numerous banks. All sensors within the designated bank act as masters and slaves, meaning if any one of the sensors behind the panel is activated by motion, it will trigger all other lights in the bank.

Skytile Sense synchronised banks

Variable Detection Area

One sensor, different applications

Adjust the detection area of the sensor by using the simple dipswitch controls. Two options are available, 100% for full area detection such as open office spaces or 50% detection for narrower applications such as corridors and aisle racking.

Daylight harvesting

Automatically maintain optimal light levels

Maintaining optimal light level without over lighting the workspace environment is a fantastically simple way of making further energy and cost savings. The integrated light sensor within the Skytile® LED driver, which sits on the back of each LED panel, has been engineered to continuously detect and monitor ambient daylight within the work space environment.

  • Target ambient lux levels

    • Simple initial dipswitch setup
    • Preset levels from 150-500 lux
  • Responsive dimming

    • Intelligently adapts to fluctuations in natural daylight
    • Significant reductions in running costs
  • Integrated sensor technology

    • Combined driver with photocell
    • Automatic daylight sensing through panel face
  • Single point installation

    • Quick and simple point retrofit solution for 4x18W T8
    • No need for additional wiring or sensors

How daylight harvesting works

Throughout the day, Skytile® will automatically dim and brighten in order to balance LED light with natural light fluctuations through nearby windows, to meet the target LUX level that has been pre-set by the user adjusting the dip switches on the driver.
