How many lights can be dimmed from one sensor?

* The maximum sinking current of LiteTrace’s luminaire-mounted sensors is 10mA. This limits the number of fixtures that can be wired to and dimmed from a single sensor.

* To control a group of lights from one sensor, the FA102 or PPA102S Bluetooth nodes can be added to each individual fixture.

* The FA102 requires a dim-to-off capable driver with 12V AUX output in each light. It allows dimming control.

* Using these Bluetooth nodes distributed on each light allows a single LiteTrace sensor to control multiple fixtures, with the 10mA current draw limit per sensor still applying.

* This distributed Bluetooth architecture allows for grouping multiple lights under one sensor.

So, in summary, current limits define how many lights can be controlled per sensor, with various options available to suit different installation needs.
