Within a classroom environment e-Sense ActiLume offers many advantages. The lighting control is adapted to the size of the room, automatically incorporating the luminaires which are positioned away from the window. Installation costs are kept to a minimum thanks to the ease of installation and commissioning.
- Automatic switching on/off or only switching off.
- Daylight control.
- Offset control of luminaires by the corridor.
- Control by door and AV panels.
- Control integrated in standard pushbuttons.
- Quick programming using IR-transmitters.
Proposal for the installation of control in classrooms
The sensor is pre-fitted in one of the luminaires in the row by the windows; acting as a master luminaire. The sensor offers occupancy detection and daylight control, which can be easily accessed via a IR-receiver and a service button. Other luminaires are connected to the master luminaire on two different DALI connections. The luminaires away from the windows are adjusted with an offset of 30 % compared to those located by the windows.
The inclusion of offset control creates a balanced illumination over the whole area, which previously was only possible using an advanced bus system. After installation, a maintained illumination level of approximately
500 lx can be achieved by pressing the service button on the sensor and activating daylight control. The desired light level and other functions can be easily changed with an IR-transmitter 86155.
Depending on the design of an older installation, energy consumption can be reduced by up to 80 %.
