    Welcome to the forum.

    Normally there isn't any device connected between LOAD terminals and the load they supply.

    Guessing by the thread title I'd say you're talking about a photosensor which will turn the light on/off according to how much light it receives?

    BTW some charge controllers have this function built-in, activating the LOAD terminals when the light falling on the PV drops output from it below a certain level. Examples: http://www.solar-electric.com/inverters-controllers-accessories/chco/mochco/solico.html
