Ansell LED Luminaires Technology



CFCorridor FunctionCorridor Function is a setting of DD Dimmable control gear for operation with a PIR (standard on/off). Dimmable ballasts reduces light output to approximately 10% when the area is unoccupied and increases to full light output when presence detector (MWS/ PIR) is activated, saving energy from the reduction.
DD1Switch DimmingSwitch DIM operation for ON / OFF and dimming is by means of a push-to-make (retractive) switch and is the simplest form of dimming. A brief operation of the switch (<0.6sec) will switch ON or OFF. When the push to make switch is held, the ballast is dimmed. On a further push, the ballast is dimmed in the opposite direction.
DD2Digital DimmingDigital dimming (DSI) - Require a digital (DSI) signal from an external source to instruct the ballast to switch ON/OFF and dim. A Digital Serial Interface (DSI) translates the signal from the controller and operates the ballast / driver.
DD3DALI DimmingDigital Addressable Lighting Interface. A dimming system that employs DALI protocol-based technology (i.e. digital control signals) to control electronic ballasts, controllers, sensors belonging to the system. Each system component has its own device-specific address, and this makes it possible to implement individual device control.
DD4Analogue Dimming1-10v control gear requires an analogue signal from an external source to instruct ballast/ LED driver to dim. This system is commonly employed in larger installations with scene-set controllers or energy management systems. Digital dimming is also used for PIR presence detection and automatic daylight sensing.
DD5OCTO Smart DimmingMains / triac dimming option; allowing detailed products to be used in conjunction with OCTO controllers AOCTO/IC/200 or AOCTO/OC/IP65/200
SM3Self-Test EmergencyThe self-test circuit utilises an accurate internal clock which is programmed to interrupt the permanent mains supply at set intervals thus initiating emergency lighting tests. The self-test units are supplied pre-programmed to initiate short duration tests once every month, a third duration test after six months and a full duration test once every 12 months as recommended in BS5266 and EN50172
MWSMicrowave SensorSophisticated presence detector that uses low power Microwave signals which are then reflected by moving persons and measured using the "Doppler effect" method. As lamps will have life expectancy affected by frequent switching, sensors integral to Ansell luminaires have been configured to maximise lamp life.
M3Maintained 3 HourMaintained 3-hour, Mode and duration (minimum with fully charged batteries of an emergency luminaire. To ensure the full duration is achieved, Emergency luminaires must be correctly maintained to condition the batteries.
