Individual light for workplaces

As part of upgrading the lighting, SITECO supplied an individual and highly efficient lighting solution for the offices and conference rooms. With help of state-of-the-art multi-sensors and the DALI Eco control system, the suspended LED luminaires installed are now controlled according to daylight, occupancy and movement. This annually saves up to 65% in energy.

The Bavarian State Medical Board with headquarters in Munich, Germany is one of 17 German medical chambers that supports 75,000 Bavarian doctors as their legislative professional association. The office and conference rooms were upgraded in 2015 with around 700 ARKTIKA luminaires. The ultra-flat and computer screen-compliant designer luminaires float by two thin wires, and create highly pleasant room atmospheres thanks to a combination of direct and indirect light components. The luminaires were also combined with state-of-the-art sensor and control technology. Multi-sensors and the DALI Eco control system implement presence and motion detection as well as control of light according to levels of daylight. Users can also additionally control the luminaires individually using push-buttons (on/off and dimming).

The passive infrared PR3 sensor is installed in the ceiling, and although hardly recognisable for observers still features high performance. The sensor detects the occupancy of people at workstations and enables motion detection in the room. Control is implemented in semi-automatic mode. If an employee enters the room in the morning he presses the button to activate the lighting. The system adds the required quantity of artificial lighting according to the ingress of daylight until an illuminance level of 500 lux is achieved, as valid for office spaces. If nobody is in the room any more, lighting is dimmed down to 10% after 15 minutes and switches off completely after a further 10 minutes.
