ATLANTA – July 8, 2020 -- nLight®, an Acuity Brands company, introduced today the nLight Digital Time Clock (nDTC), a touch screen device that offers a cost-effective solution for time-based control in a lighting control zone, eliminating the need for complex networked controllers. The nLight nDTC device delivers simple lighting configuration, control and scheduling capabilities for small-to-medium projects such as retail stores, smaller footprint industrial and warehouse facilities, parking lots and outdoor site lighting spaces.

The nDTC device communicates with an nLight wired network and can support up to 127 digital devices in an nLight control zone, while allowing for up 32 individually created and controlled schedules.  nDTC is available as wall-mounted or pre-assembled in an ARP relay panel for more robust functionality in spaces requiring full circuit control.   


Key nDTC device features include:

  • Onscreen programming and configuration make programming easier without the need for specialized technicians, software, USB wiring or cable.
  • Digital time clock creates schedules to adjust a building’s light levels automatically for energy efficiency and aid in code compliance.
  • Scalable design allows for the flexibility to have a stand-alone solution that can scale to a fully networked solution.
  • Out-of-the-box functionality provides default settings that work immediately after installation helping to speed-up job completion.
