DAYSIM Header File Keyword: sensor_file_info

This keyword provides information for each sensor in the Sensor Point File. The syntax is the keyword followed by n entries for n sensor such as:

sensor_file_info 0 0 LG1 0 0 0 0 0 BG1 0 BG1,LG2 BG1_Ext 0

The example has 13 sensors in the Sensor Point File. The nomenclature for each sensor is as follows.

  • '0'  denotes that a sensor is not used by the electric lighting or shading modules
  • LG1 means that the sensor is a reference sensor for lighting group 1
  • BG2 mean that the sensor is a reference sensor for Blind Group 2.
  • BG1_Ext mean that the sensor is an external sensor (used forglare analysis) by Blind Group2

Note that the same sensor can be a reference sensor for multiple Lighting and Blind groups. If this is the case, the delimiter is a comma.
