THE CHALLENGE

The main aim of the new lighting scheme was to improve lighting levels and minimise energy usage through the use of Smart controls.

THE SOLUTION

Thorlux Lighting proposed a new installation that would combine the necessary energy savings with an improved quality of lighting throughout the building. This recommendation was based on installing the Thorlux SmartScan monitoring and management system which incorporates Smart intelligent lighting control. Thorlux SmartScan luminaires have delivered a 71% energy saving compared to the previous lighting installation. Integral Smart sensors monitor ambient light and presence, control output to the correct level, dim and switch when there is sufficient daylight and illuminate only when the area is occupied.

In the warehouse area, by replacing 2x58W fluorescent luminaires with energy efficient Solow LED and Solow XLED luminaires the number of points required was greatly reduced. This resulted in much lower capital and installation costs. The addition of high efficiency Zipline luminaires in the manufacturing area also allowed for the removal of existing task lighting over production benches.

SmartScan automatically controls the emergency lighting test regime, monitoring the status of each luminaire and reporting daily to the SmartScan website. The SmartScan website allows users to view current status information as well as full historic data when required.
