The DTL Difference

The DTL brand, a trusted name in the outdoor lighting controls market since 1990, has created some of the most reliable products to be used in the field.

In today’s growing LED market, the DTL brand continues this trend by utilizing TRIAC assisted relay circuitry in its LED photocontrols. A TRIAC, being a solid-state device, ensures precise switching control versus zero-cross relays to provide consistent long-life LED performance. The TRIAC protects the relay during switching cycles, offering superior inrush protection leading to low inrush current with low-voltage switch on and no inductive arcing with low-current switch off.

DTL photocontrols, which are among the most ubiquitous outdoor photocontrols, are built using well designed electronic circuitry. They run cool, consume less energy and offer consistent performance over voltage ranges and time. Explore the difference in electronic photocontrol with Dark to Light.
