Hi Danielle.

Based on a proposed code change that's proposed for inclusion in NECB 2015, which clarify the description, this is what I understand it is :

-       "Personal control" => Full manual on/off control

-       "Occupancy-Sensing Mechanism - Manual" => Full manual on/off control (i.e. same as above)

-       "Occupancy-Sensing Mechanism - Automatic" => full auto on/off control

Other type of controls (bi-level, auto off/manual on) are not accounted for in NECB 2011 Section 4.3.

Quick question about the NECB 2011 (Section There are different factors (credits to account for):

-          "Personal control"

-          "Occupancy-Sensing Mechanism - Manual"

-          "Occupancy-Sensing Mechanism - Automatic"

What is meant by each of these? I'm assuming:

-          Personal Control - An on/off switch or task light.

-          Occupancy-Sensing Mechanism - Manual: A push-button for an occupancy override with timer (no switch).

-          Occupancy-Sensing Mechanism - Automatic: An automatic occupancy sensor.

If anyone can confirm my interpretation is correct, that would be great. Thanks.
