The photocell sensor automatic light control switch JL-241/242/243 series is applicable to control any independent LED home/street lighting automatically in accordance with the ambient natural lighting level.
This product is designed with microprocessor circuits with IR-filtered silicone sensor, a heavy duty surge arrester (MOV) is provided to protect the lamp from inrush current as well as impulse by lightening.
Further, a preset 10 seconds time-delay prevents excessive operation due to spotlight or lightning during the night time.
A heavy duty relay supports the work life of over 15,000 cycles, and offers extra long work life when an optional metal Armor is applied together.
This product provides twist lock terminals and signal contacts meeting the requirements of ANSI C136.41-2013, as well as being listed by UL under the Standard for Plug-In, Locking Type Photocontrols for Use with Area Lighting ANSI/UL773.
JL-243 Nema 7 Pin 0-10V Dimming Photocell Addvantages:
ANSI C136.41-2013 Twist Lock
IP65 Ready / IP67 Optional
40kA Surge Arrester Built-in
IR filtered Photodiode Sensor
LED Decay Compensation Featured**
Metal Armor for Long Life
Product 0-10V Dimming Features:
-Constant On/Off Dimming
Standard program for LED output keeping the field lit with
constant lighting level, in accordance with the natural sunlight
level detected. When the natural lighting is higher than 110% of
the rated level, hot line will be disconnected to keep LED fixture
as zero consumption
Available with JL-241C, JL-242C and JL-243C.
Standard program for LED output lowered to a customized percentage
to save power after midnight until about 1 hour before dawn time,
as well as reduce light pollution to environment.
Available with JL-242C and JL-243C.
-LED Decay Compensation
Standard program for LED output partially reserved and to be used
for compensating decay over a work time up to 13 years. It will
extend the work life of a LED fixture significantly.
Available JL-243C only

Disconnect power; wire the color coded receptacle according to the diagram below.
Push the photocontroller on and twist it clockwise to lock it into the receptacle.
Install the photocontroller with the Photocell facing the NORTH direction as indicated on the top of the photocontroller.
Adjust the receptacle position if necessary.
It is normal for the SWITCH to take several minutes to turn off when first installed.
To test “turn on” during daytime, cover its eye with sliding the metal strip mounted.
Do not cover with finger because light traveling through fingers may be great enough to keep the switch open.
Test will take approximately 2 minutes.
