What Outdoor Photocell is appropriate to use with Powerlink G3?

Issue:
What Outdoor Photocell is appropriate to use with Powerlink G3?

Product Line:
Powerlink Lighting Control
NF Panelboards

Environment:
North America, Commercial Building Lighting Control

Resolution:
Powerlink G3 supports digital on/off inputs.   Thus the photocell must have internal logic to create a dry contact output when the outdoor light level reaches a specific value.   

Schneider Electric does not have any such outdoor photocell in the company portfolio.   One photocell that we have worked with in the past and recommend is the MAS-O sensor from PLC Multipoint.   This sensor would have to be coupled with the LC8 controller from the same company.  More information about both of these devices can be found at www.plcbuildings.com .
