Energy consumption in buildings can be reduced with the help of Merten ARGUS presence detectors. It detects the presence of persons in the room and simultaneously measures the intensity of the natural light. If the degree of brightness is less than the pre-set value, even the smallest of movements is enough to activate the lighting. However, if the brightness of the surroundings is adequate or if ARGUS does not detect anyone in the room, the lights are switched off once again. Ideal for offices, long corridors and entrance areas.
FeaturesThe ARGUS presence detector range offers efficient stand-alone and system solutions for different: constant light control for consistent brightness by the use of 1-10 V and DALI as well as the control of heating or Ventilation.

BenefitsContinuously rising energy prices are the result of a changed global energy situation. Energy efficient products are more important and more in demand than ever, because saving is the only way to conserve resources and reduce costs.
Presence detectors from Schneider Electric avoid unnecessary energy consumption and contribute significantly to cost savings - in offices, schools, hospitals and any kind of public buildings.
With the installation of presence detectors, the energy efficiency class B of the ENPD (Energy Performance for Buildings Directive) can be reached. This class certifies high energy savings of buildings, from which inhabitants as well as operators or building owners benefit.
ApplicationsConstant light control of open space rooms: Improve the comfort of occupants and save energy by achieving a constant lighting level in the office. By the DALI or 1-10 V detectors it is possible to increase or decrease the lighting level in proportion to the natural brightness saves energy and is thus cost-efficient. A high level of convenience and efficiency is thus provided for large spaces like open space office rooms, entrance/sport halls, classrooms or cafeterias.
Light and ventilation control in office rooms: Improve the comfort in the workplaces and save energy by controlling light and heating in the office depending on whether a room or area is being used. Combined light and ventilation control means double efficiency and thus optimizes the energy costs considerably. This solution also provides a high level of efficiency for facilities like rest rooms or sport halls.
Light control of corridors with master and slave connection: Optimizing the time of lighting in the corridor to save energy by creation a master and slave detector line. Units are connected via a single core 230V cable. Depending on the external brightness, the light will be switched on or off automatically, so the corridors will always be sufficiently lit when people move around. This flexible and quick way of installation is especially easy to apply in commercial/public buildings like offices or hospitals.
