Title (EN) METHODS AND DEVICES FOR AUTO-CALIBRATING LIGHT DIMMERS
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET DISPOSITIFS D'AUTO-ÉTALONNAGE DE GRADATEURS DE LUMIÈRE
Abstract:
(EN) An automated dimming load controller automatically measures the relationship between the current draw and the dimmer setting for each light or group of lights connected to the load controller. Once measured, the relationship between the current draw and the dimmer setting can be used to enable the dimmer controller to adjust the lights between their minimum and maximum effective illumination. This automatic setting of the dimmer controller may be performed regularly to accommodate changes in performance or replacement of any of the connected lights, drivers or ballasts.
(FR) Une commande automatisée de charge de gradation mesure automatiquement la relation entre l'appel de courant et le réglage de gradateur pour chaque luminaire ou groupe de luminaires relié à la commande de charge. Une fois mesurée, la relation entre l'appel de courant et le réglage de gradateur peut être utilisée pour permettre à la commande de gradateurs de régler les luminaires entre leur éclairement effectif minimal et maximal. Ce réglage automatique de la commande de gradateurs peut être effectué régulièrement pour s'adapter à des variations de performances ou au remplacement d'éléments quelconques parmi les luminaires, les excitateurs ou les ballasts connectés.
