Trends in lighting management

Emergency lighting
 
Synergies create added value
ONLITE luminaires and emergency lighting systems make a perfect match with the LUXMATE LITENET lighting control system. Not only do they use the same DALI control lines, but all luminaires are integrated into the highly functional, tightly monitored system.
Changing colour temperatures
 
At the right place, at the right time
The right colour temperature has a major impact in terms of whether a product is bought, a work of art fascinates the beholder or whether people feel at ease. With that in mind, Zumtobel has developed a wide range of luminaires and lighting control technologies – from gradually adjustable white tones to dynamic changes of colour temperature and quantity of light.
Use of daylight
 
The best light is free
People's need to get the ideal quantity of daylight and natural daylight quality results in perfect adjustment of lighting and blinds, allowing them to eliminate glare and avoid the overheating of rooms.
Saving energy
 
Daily routine
Having an intelligent system work in the background makes it easy to save energy on an ongoing basis. Working hours, people's presence at the workplace and, above all, daylight open up a wide range of saving opportunities. All this helps to reduce CO2 emissions, something which gives buildings credits to obtain environmental certification.

Lighting management

1 Saving energy

Due to the latest building measures, for instance in the areas of air-conditioning, lighting or room design, environmentally certified buildings have been verified to have a positive impact on their users and therefore also on the company. Surveys have revealed that the employees' performance and motivation increase whereas absence to due illness decreases. In addition to a highly energy-efficient combination of luminaires and lighting management, Zumtobel also provides hands-on support for obtaining certification. The environmental product declaration (EPD) required for that purpose is available for an ever-growing number of Zumtobel products.

Time-based management

Luminaires and light sources

In order to save a maximum of energy, all potential savings must be added up and the lighting installation needs to be maintained on an ongoing basis. The result is more independence from energy price trends, and sustainable reduction of costs and CO2 for many years.
  • Using luminaires fitted with advanced electronic control gear with dimming functions reduces energy consumption by some 25 percent
  • Presence detectors or pre-defined switch-on times provide potential savings in the range from 20 to 40 percent
  • Using daylight reduces energy consumption for lighting by as much as 75 percent
  • A building's cooling load is reduced by properly adjusted control of lighting and blinds

2 Using daylight

Architecture and daylight
 
Large glass façades are an effective tool to allow as much daylight as possible to enter the building. In this context, blinds and thermal insulation become important issues for planners and designers. Nowadays, almost every building is fitted with a control system, and in the case of refurbishments, too, advanced luminaire and lighting control technologies are used increasingly. 
People and daylight
 
Natural daylight and its dynamic changes are essential to make us feel good. Perfect lighting takes varying room situations and people's needs into account. This induces ongoing adjustment to people's individual vision, the visual tasks and duties they have to perform, as well as changes according to the weather, season and time of day. 
Light is the elixir of life
 
Directional sunlight and the sky's diffuse light combine to create dynamic lighting scenes; even the colours of light are based on the 24-hour cycle. Variable light colours and illuminance levels influence the production of hormones. This in turn stabilises people's circadian wake-sleep rhythms, enhancing stimulation, making them feel at ease and enhancing their sense of time.

 Winter

 Summer

Daylight used in five intelligent ways:
 
1 Makes optimum use of sunlight
2 Prevents distracting glare
3 Preserves a visual link with outdoors
4 Adjusts the room climate in winter and summer alike
5 Makes sure façades look attractive
Automation
Daylight measuring head
Incident daylight
Desired lighting level: constantly 500 lux

Look Out sensors

 
If incident light is captured centrally on the roof of a building or on the actual window frontage, lighting control systems work more accurately and involve less effort than constant-light sensors. Depending on the position of the luminaire, the lighting control system adds sufficient artificial lighting to achieve the desired lighting level.

3 Changing colour temperatures

People's inner clocks are stabilised by predefined time lines which create the right light colour and lighting level suitable for any time of day. Subtle changes in white tones suffice to provide stimulation or relaxation. Nowadays, design concepts take the biological effect of light on people's inner clocks more strongly into account. The basis of biologically effective lighting concepts is the effective use of daylight – if daylight is not available, intelligently controlled artificial lighting takes over its functions to the greatest possible extent.

4 Integrating emergency lighting

Luminaires for general lighting
Emergency luminaires as part of general lighting
A perfect combination: LUXMATE LITENET and the central ONLITE supply system use the same DALI circuit to ensure trouble-free communication.
Safety is a basic human need and so is light. Where an integrated solution is used, the emergency lighting components remain unobtrusive during normal operation, revealing their true capabilities only in the event of testing or an emergency.

The purpose of building management is to preserve the value and the functional capabilities of a building. Building management systems must therefore adapt themselves to changing uses and support continuous improvement initiatives. Regular maintenance and inspections preserve the required energy efficiency and are mandatory in the case of emergency lighting installations. Newly developed potential technical capabilities and savings can be exploited even in existing projects by adapting the lighting or operating concept for instance. Zumtobel service packages help implement such improvements without disruption in every phase of a building’s life-cycle.

Architect: Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, London (UK)
The Yellow Building in London with a floor space of some 15,000 square metres accommodates the headquarters of the Monsoon Accessorize fashion brand as well as exhibits of the Monsoon art exhibition.

The seven-storey building is dominated by an impressive atrium supported by an outstanding concrete structure where plenty of daylight can enter the building.

In particular the people working in the design department in the upper storeys benefit from having lots of daylight available at work. Where insufficient daylight is available, artificial lighting in the amount required for achieving the necessary level of illuminance is automatically added by the Zumtobel lighting solution with daylight-based control using the LUXMATE LITENET lighting management system. The combination with presence detectors at the workstations ensures that the energy saving potential is utilised to optimum effect.

Safely provided for all over with the best light for people and the environment
Since the company's move to the Yellow Building, the use of the building and the area utilised on the various floors have been modified several times. In order to make sure that the optimum lighting solution for people and the environment is used at all times, even with continuously changing requirements placed on the lighting system, Zumtobel offers extensive service and maintenance packages.

The operators of the Yellow Building rely on Maintenance Platinum, the highest level of Zumtobel's service agreements, which guarantees the best lighting quality and energy efficiency as well as maximum safety at all times. The services included in the Platinum package go far beyond general on-site maintenance. Providing on-site visits and measurements made on a regular basis, Zumtobel's service engineers apply all their know-how to ensure that optimisation potential is fully exploited, resulting in reduced operating costs and at the same time increased lighting quality.

Direct contact to service engineers and remote maintenance ensure that problems are solved quickly, even in case of urgent issues, without compromising the use of the building.

 

“The service contract Zumtobel provides gives us peace of mind. Any issues or queries I have are answered and resolved by the lighting engineer during service visits.”

Better light. Lower energy consumption.

This family-owned business is the world’s biggest manufacturer of injection moulding machines and is committed to using resources responsibly. In the wake of problems with its existing high-intensity discharge lamps, the company devised a concept for a perfect lighting solution that was to be rolled out across all its sites. Zumtobel’s ecoCALC calculation program was used to work up different versions and compare them with each other beforehand.

The objectives of the project to refurbish the lighting in the production bays focused on two key issues: saving energy, and providing excellent lighting quality to assist fault-free work.

Latest-generation high-bay luminaires replaced the ageing high-bay reflector luminaires. Their dimmability was indispensable in order for the LUXMATE LITENET lighting control system to exploit free day- light to the full by providing only as much artificial lighting as need- ed in order to maintain a constant lighting level. The central software control centre reveals its full capabilities in the St. Valentin plant: the lighting in all 45 areas of the plant is controlled minute by minute based on predefined time intervals. Lighting scenes are adapted to suit individual needs via all the computer workstations using web-based LITENET incontrol operating software with appropriate user management. Graphical visualisation with CAD bay layout drawings gives building services staff a complete overview and lamp failures are pinpointed immediately – with interfaces to other building services systems. After commissioning by Zumtobel and a specially tailored training session, building services specialists at Engel have now assumed responsibility for operating the LITENET system.

Upgrading the company’s building

Conveyor and processing systems for the print media industry are manufactured, cabled and tested in Ferag AG’s machine shop. The lighting in the machine shop was timeworn until just a few months ago. Insufficient light, frequent lamp failures and awkward maintenance often disrupted work and incurred considerable costs.

The chief argument in favour of lighting refurbishment was the need for optimum lighting conditions. The procurement and maintenance costs as well as the energy consumption of the old luminaires were also no longer acceptable. The new solution was consistent with the company’s basic principles of using resources carefully and being committed to sustainability.

The various task areas in the machine shop and a desire to integrate daylight provided the starting point for lighting design work. There are CNC machines with displays in the front part of the shop, and mechanical plant components are assembled elsewhere. The TECTON continuous-row system uses various optics to cater for the needs of the various visual tasks. A DIMLITE lighting control unit compensates for changing amounts of daylight over the course of the day. Look Out sensors facing the glazed frontage measure incoming natural light. If daylight fails to provide the predefined brightness, luminaires are dimmed up to an appropriate level. This improves lighting comfort and minimises energy consumption: lighting refurbishment will pay for itself within about two years.

Technology is meant to help, not hinder

What do you get when the client comes from a scientific, technical background, the interior designer likes to be provocative and the hotel operator is an experienced old hand? A hotel like the Belvoir. The hotel echoes the shape of a nearby glacier and offers magnificent views across Lake Zurich.

That is the yardstick by which the lighting control system is also judged. The client and the future hotel operator both assumed different roles several times during the planning phase: the role of guest in order to test user-friendliness, or the role of operator with the primary concern being low maintenance costs, energy savings and simple maintenance.

ZBOX is is a self-contained system that controls one hotel room and responds flexibly to requested changes. CIRCLE multifunction switches make it clear to guests immediately how to operate the system. Guests can set ready-made lighting scenes at the press of a button. The horizontal shutters are controlled by a central daylight measuring head but can nevertheless be raised or lowered manually. Automatically closed blinds prevent the build-up of heat when a room is unoccupied. Inserting a key card automatically opens the blinds and activates the "welcome" lighting scene. A morning, midday and evening scene is programmed for the restaurant; their brightness is easily adjusted by touching the iPod-like CIRIA user interface. The lighting control systems, emergency lighting system and emergency luminaires have been provided by a single supplier. The fewer interfaces there are, the easier and quicker it is to put a system into service.

Appetising efficiency

The restaurant in Kassel was extensively renovated in order to give the slogan "Nordsee. The alternative" added impetus. In the course of interior refurbishment, the lighting too was completely modernised.

The entire restaurant was converted to LED, and colour temperature in the dining area are inspired by the model that is provided by nature. The lighting control system was commissioned by Zumtobel Service, who also familiarised staff with the innovative lighting concept and showed them how to operate it.

From a lighting viewpoint, morning starts by simply turning a central key-operated switch. The right light and high illuminance levels for restaurant prep work are immediately available. For diners, the day gets off to a start with warm colour temperatures reminiscent of the rising sun. At midday the restaurant is bathed in gleaming, cool light. In the evening, the EMOTION lighting control system paints a marine sunset scene: reddish hues invite diners to savour their evening meal at leisure. Recessed LED luminaires and LED light coves provide refreshing accent lighting regardless of the time of day. In kitchen areas, brightness levels rather than the light colour of the general lighting are changed to suit the best lighting situation for any particular task. The LUXMATE EMOTION lighting control system thus combines the benefits of LEDs, which include, among other advantages, low heat emission and therefore reduced expenditure on food refrigeration, with excellent hospitality. Operating convenience can also be taken for granted when using EMOTION. When the restaurant closes in the evening, turning the key-operated switch illuminates the restaurant in a red light which matches the firm’s corporate design.

The future starts now

The workplace of the future is already a reality at the head office of Hannoversche Lebensversicherung AG. This highly efficient building with triple glazing and thermally insulating façade elements uses geothermal probes, heat pumps and district heating to meet its considerably reduced energy requirements.

The client wanted a highly efficient office building that provided maximum flexibility and was ideally prepared to cope with a large number of anticipated alterations in room layouts. It was looking for a company that supported lighting management externally, took over facility management and performed maintenance.

All the luminaires and blinds in the three-part building complex are controlled by a TCP/IP-based LITENET lighting management system. All settings and changes to the system can be made from a central location. This was achieved by integrating the system into a building-wide OPC visual display. Individually addressed DALI luminaires make it possible to respond flexibly to changes. Available daylight is measured by a central daylight measuring head. Exterior blinds with a light guidance function are adjusted appropriately depending on the position of the sun. The required dimming level of each individual luminaire to ensure constant lighting levels is recalculated and set at one-minute intervals. Presence detectors reduce the operating hours of luminaires in line with staffing levels. Employees can use wireless light switches to adapt lighting scenes to suit their personal preferences completely independently of any wiring in the building.
