fagerhult e-senseAdded intelligence
Some forms of technology have been steeped in
mystery to the extent that they negate the purpose
for which they were designed.
Light control is such an example. A technology
that was born from our need of ergonomic and
energy-saving lighting. Obvious, yet too diffi cult
to understand. Both to those planning, the person
installing, and to the person who has to use it.
At last the technology has fi nally matured and Fa-
gerhult can now introduce a unique concept. e-Sense
added intelligence. All you need to do is to connect
the luminaire and press a button.
Our aim has been to eliminate all the hidden costs
of installation, operation and maintenance. To avoid
switches and complicated settings. You install a nor-
mal luminaire, but get a complete control system.
With e-Sense each luminaire in the room can
think for itself, or as one system. The luminaires
have a newly developed multisensor that detects
movement in the room, measures the daylight and
and adapts the output accordingly. You determine
its level of intelligence by selecting from two system
models, the fully featured e-Sense ActiLume or the
basic model e-Sense SmartSwitch. No matter what
you choose the luminaire takes care of itself.
On the other hand, there is nothing more frustra-
ting than infl exible technology. If you want to you
can control the light yourself, with the help of a pull
switch. And if you want to refurnish your offi ce, it's
not a problem as the luminaire is an independent
working unit. Time consuming and costly repro-
gramming is no longer needed.
e-Sense represents ease of use, effi ciency, energy
and economy. Easy to install and use. Effective with
regard to light treatment and energy consumption
you save up to 75 per cent. Ergonomic as you look
after visual and psychological needs. Economy is the
sum of all parts. We have integrated light control
into the system, so you can divert your energies
elsewhere. A smart move we think.

Fagerhult e-Sense is the smart way to save energy.
One of the most diffi cult choices you have to make is between form
and function. This has been the case for a long time within light control.
Choosing a light control function limited the number of luminaire models
available, while those who gave priority to design had to cope with com-
plicated control systems or no control at all. This was an insult to all the
architects, light planners and interior designers that applied a holistic ap-
proach to their work. Consequently, we now offer e-Sense on virtually all
luminaires in our product range. Which refl ects the growing importance
we attach to integrated lighting control.
Initially we will offer various leading products in an e-Sense design with
ready-to-install order numbers. Install, connect and start experiencing the
benefi ts of control.
We also offer e-Sense MLS, with a range of existing luminaires incorpo-
rating the new miniaturized sensor from Ex-Or, the DH sensor.

Fagerhult e-sense is the easiest, quickest way to install light control. All you have to do is to connect it. And the system is up and running. If you want to make personal set-tings, you can do this by pressing the service button and selecting between the two most common operating functions. It couldnt be easier.
Fagerhult e-Sense luminaires are equipped with integrated light control. An attractive, easy installation without the need of add-on or external sensors. No connections no problems.
ActiLume is a control system based on
the DALI protocol. The system consists of
a detector and a controller. The sensor
has three different parts: a detector for
presence, a sensor for daylight control and
an IR receiver should you want to use a
e-Sense ActiLume offers maximum
comfort and energy savings up to 75 %.
The immense energy saving potential gives
the possibility of repaying the investment
The system also offers the user the
chance to adjust the lighting to his/her
personal level with the help of a retractable
switch, pull cord or a remote control.
The master luminaire can control ten
others (11 HF-ballasts). The system has two
channels, A and B. Channel B has a 30 %
offset, which means that Channel B starts
to be regulated when channel A drops to
70 %. When channel A is regulated to 10 %,
channel B is then set to 40 %.
In recessed installations channel A can
control the luminaires close to the window
where there is more incoming daylight, and
channel B control luminaires away from
In pendant three lamp luminaires (with
two ballasts) we use the system to control
the direct and indirect light separately with
channel B controlling the indirect light.

SmartSwitch is an on/off-sensor that con-
trols the connected luminaire via the mains
voltage. There is also a model with pull dim
for individual setting of the lighting level
available. SmartSwitch gives automatic ig-
nition/extinguishing controlled by presence
and the ambient light. The presence detec-
tion can be set with a delay of between 1
to 30 minutes.
When the amount of ambient light
(daylight) is suffi cient the lighting is swit-
ched off, the lighting level that activates
switching off can be set between 502000
lux. This function can be omitted.
e-Sense SmartSwitch absence dimming
A control function adapted to a room in an
offi ce which is used sparingly, for example,
a copying room, stockroom, corridors or
a cloakroom. The lighting level is set at a
constant low level to counteract the im-
pression of a darkened room. Any presence
is detected and the lighting is adjusted to
100 %. The time delay to return to the low
level (10 %) can be short unlike control with
a switch off function where you need to av-
oid unnecessary starting of the fl uorescent
lamp. If you wish to switch off the lumin-
aire completely, this can be done centrally
once working hours are over.
In addition, with the setting for lux
on/off you can prevent control if there is
already suffi cient light in the room. Adjust-
ment of the time and lux level are made on
the rear of the sensor.

e-Sense ActiLumeFunctions offered by e-Sense luminaires equipped with ActiLume
Presence control switches the lighting on and off auto-
matically. After the last presence detection the lighting
is switched off with a 15 minutes delay.
A sensor adapts the lighting output to the amount of
incidental light (natural light). If there is no daylight,
this function regulates the light output to maintain
the required illumination level.
To control and programme using the remote control if
required. The remote control is an accessory.
Manual control (touch)
Full manual control via pull dim in the luminaire or
retractive switch on the wall.
Channel B 30 % offset
Channel B has a 30 % offset, which means that channel
B starts to be regulated when channel A drops to 70 %.
When channel A is regulated to 10 %, channel B is then
set to 40 %.
ActiLume offers maximum comfort and au-
tomatic energy saving. ActiLume adapts the
level of light to the surrounding environ-
ment and when the room is not in use the
light is switched off.
When the sensor detects presence, the
system automatically switches the light
on. If there is suffi cient daylight in a room
the level is automatically dampened. The
light is switched off when the room has
been empty for some time. As light is only
on when needed, the system can give the
energy savings up to 75 %.
Night: The offi ce is in darkness. 07:56 The luminaire is switched on with presence as the daylight does not satisfy the lighting need.
Daylight reduces the luminaire light accordingly, also known as daylight control.
Adjustment is performed slowly and constantly according to a set value. When dimmed, the uplight is 30% higher than the downlight.
The series of pictures shows what happens in the room. The curve shows how the luminaire's energy use varies throughout the day.
