B+B Brightness sensor

The B+B brightness sensor is a light sensor that is used, among other things, in building automation or agriculture to measure an illuminance both in the building and outdoors. The measurement of the illuminance is done with a precise and long-term stable photodiode. Our three-point calibration guarantees high accuracy over the entire measuring range. Due to the analog output signal (0-10V), the brightness sensor can be connected to any standard automation system and is suitable for continuous use due to its overvoltage protection.

With the B+B brightness sensor, switching operations in building automation can be implemented very easily. The reliable measurement of the brightness guarantees an effective use e.g. of solar modules. Likewise, illuminants can be switched precisely as soon as the daylight changes.

The special features at a glance:

  • Standard output signal 0…10 V
  • Measuring ranges 0…1000 Lux (for indoor)/0…10.000 Lux (for indoor)/0…100.000 Lux (for outdoor)
  • 3-point calibrated and linearized
  • Light sensor and transmitter compactly combined in one housing
  • Protection class IP54 (IP67 on request)
