Title
(EN) BATTERY-POWERED OCCUPANCY SENSOR
(FR) DÉTECTEUR DE PRÉSENCE ALIMENTÉ PAR BATTERIE
Abstract
(EN) A load control system comprises a load control device and a battery-powered occupancy sensor, which transmits a first wireless signal to the load control device in response to detecting the presence of an occupant in a space. The load control system further comprises a visual indicator for providing a visual indication when the magnitude of a battery voltage of a battery of the occupancy sensor has dropped below a predetermined low-battery voltage threshold. The occupancy sensor may comprise the visual indicator, such that the visual indicator is illuminated when the occupancy detects the presence of the occupant in the space and the magnitude of the battery voltage is less than the predetermined threshold. Alternatively, the load control device may comprise the visual indicator, such that the visual indicator is illuminated in response to receiving a second wireless signal, which is transmitting by the occupancy sensor when the magnitude of the battery voltage is less than the predetermined threshold.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un système de commande de charge qui comprend un dispositif de commande de charge et un détecteur de présence alimenté par batterie, lequel transmet un premier signal sans fil au dispositif de commande de charge en réponse à la détection de la présence d'un occupant dans un espace. Le système de commande de charge comprend en outre un indicateur visuel pour fournir une indication visuelle lorsque l'amplitude d'une tension de batterie d'une batterie du détecteur de présence a chuté au-dessous d'un seuil de tension de batterie bas prédéterminé. Le détecteur de présence peut comprendre l'indicateur visuel, de telle sorte que l'indicateur visuel est éclairé lorsque le détecteur de présence détecte la présence de l'occupant dans l'espace et que l'amplitude de la tension de batterie est inférieure au seuil prédéterminé. En variante, le dispositif de commande de charge peut comprendre l'indicateur visuel, de telle sorte que l'indicateur visuel est éclairé en réponse à la réception d'un second signal sans fil, qui est transmis par le détecteur de présence lorsque l'amplitude de la tension de batterie est inférieure au seuil prédéterminé.
