Light Sensor

If connected to a lighting bus, the KT 74 will adjust the brightness of
the front panel lighting based upon the lighting bus input. If no
lighting bus input is detected, the KT 74 will automatically control the
front panel lighting based on the ambient light sensor. The dim point
for the Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) backlight illumination can be
adjusted by using the configuration mode as described in section
1.9 of this guide.
