Phantom load on Occupancy Sensor?
I recently learned (to my delight) that Lutron now sells occupancy sensors that also work with CFL's and/or LED's (Lutron Maestro - http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/3671632a_Maestro_Occ_Sens...).
I would like to use occupancy sensors in our deep energy retrofit (http://delafleur.com/blog/) - but now have the nagging suspicion that in order to operate (constantly monitor environment), they have to draw a phantom load. Question:
- Does anyone know if they do draw a phantom load?
- If they do, does anyone have a sense about the load size?
