The Square D® Clipsal® Area Lighting Panels allow users to realize daylight harvesting schemes in a conference room or suite in a commercial building. They are designed to meet energy code requirements related to reduction in lighting loads by integrating natural light with artificial light.

Users can set up the panels as a stand-alone system or connected as a part of a larger Square D Clipsal network. A Cat-5 cable connection gives the pre-engineered enclosed panels the ability to integrate light-level detection, occupancy detection, keypads and switching.

Outfitting an area with a Square D Clipsal light-level sensor allows an Area Lighting Panel to automatically dim lights to capitalize on available natural light. When using Square D Clipsal occupancy sensors, the panel automatically turns lights off after everyone leaves. Additionally, various pre-programmed lighting scenes can be automatically executed by the panel by pressing a button on a Square D Clipsal lighting control keypad.

The panels consist of a NEMA 1 enclosure with Square D Clipsal DIN rail-mounted, microprocessor-based output modules. Options include a four-channel relay output package, an eight-channel relay output package, and four-channel relay and four-channel 0-10V dimming packages. Relay models have four or eight 20A relay outputs and are available in 120V and 277V. Dimming models are available in 120V and 277V and include four 20A relay outputs and four 0-10V outputs for control of dimmable fluorescent ballasts, such as the Advance Mark 7, Osram Sylvania Quicktronic® and Universal Lighting Technologies SuperDim®. All Area Lighting Panel configurations are available with a power supply, which provides extra power to the network when multiple keypads or sensors are required.
