Precision Multiple Controls (PMC) Photo Controls provide dusk-to-dawn control of street, parking lot, billboard and security lighting. Mounting types include fixed position mounting, stem mounting and twist lock. With so many different options, Precision and Green Electrical Supply have the right Photo Control sensors for your application.

The Precision Lumatrol Series - Extreme Life - model number EXDV-AP-TD, dusk-to-dawn photocell is designed for use with lighting loads up to 750 watts LED or 1000 watts HID in outdoor security, area lighting or wall packs. The EXDV-AP-TD provides long life, reliable photo control in LED or HID lighting applications requiring a 3-terminal NEMA twist and lock type plug connection. They operate on 105-285 volt, turn on in the evening when light levels reach 1 footcandle and turn off in the morning when light level readings reach 3 footcandles.

The EXDV-AP-TD is constructed with a filtered silicone sensor for accurate, non-drift operation. The housing and window are 30% thicker than standard twist lock photo controls to prevent UV degradation and are sealed to IP65 standards, preventing penetration of moisture, dust and other contaminates. Each EXDV-AP-TD has enhanced LED in-rush protection and a 640 Joule MOV surge arrestor. The physical dimensions of the Precision Lumatrol Extreme Long Life EXDV-AP-TD dusk-to-dawn photocell are 3.07" in diameter by 2.15 high (the control housing only).

Tips To Optimize Photocell Performance

Do not face the photocell into the midday sun. If the photo control is installed on the south side of a building, face the photocell east or west or point the photo control down toward the ground. The best direction to face the photo control is north.

Do not face the photocell where it can see artificial light. Light from windows, signs, street lights, etc., will cause the photo control not to switch on. The photo control should not be positioned so that it sees the light it is controlling (or reflected light - like off of your white siding or white painted soffit overhang). These conditions will cause the light to cycle on and off.

Do not install the photo control with wires up unless there is NO POSSIBILITY of water entering the photo control around the wires. The photo control must be installed in an approved weatherproof box. Do not attempt to caulk around the wires. Installing a Photocell below the box is WRONG! Photocells installed on top of the Box is RIGHT! Any Photo Control installed by the side of the weatherproof box is: ACCEPTABLE!

When you are testing the photocell, be sure to turn on the power (load will come on) and wait up to 5 minutes for the photocell to switch load off. For further testing cover the photo control completely with black tape or another dark material to simulate night conditions. If you can't cover the control with tape, try covering the photo control with the shipping carton to simulate night conditions.
