LEDVANCE lighting project focused on simplified installation
A new lighting solution from German company LEDVANCE has been installed at Siemens Campus Erlangen providing flexible and intelligent lighting in office spaces used for a variety of purposes.
The company said that the new luminaires were successfully adapted to the existing architectural conditions and integrated into the existing ceiling concept for a simple installation.
For this project, two different luminaires were selected, which offered the possibility of being hung from the ceiling in a suspended and flexible way. The luminaire Linear Indiviled Direct/Indirect can be controlled via DALI and is equipped with sensors for presence and daylight detection. Also, with the Panel Direct/Indirect luminaire, also operated with DALI control gear, the 500 lux light in the room required by the workplace ordinance is fully achieved.
“When selecting luminaires for Siemens Campus Erlangen, the existing suspended ceiling surfaces were a particular challenge,” said Oliver Wehner, Project Sales manager at LEDVANCE. “The new luminaires had to be mounted between the panels on the ceiling in order to integrate them into the lighting design. Furthermore, Siemens wanted luminaires with daylight sensors, presence detectors and a bright, uniform illumination, to allow for flexible arrangement of the furniture in the room,” Wehner added.
The company noted that the advantages of choosing these luminaires include a high level of lighting comfort with direct/indirect beam characteristics, good glare control and low maintenance requirements at low operating costs. A further advantage of this lighting solution is the direct integration of presence and daylight detection sensors into the luminaires. Independent of the building management system, the sensors automatically detect whether the room is in use or not and switch the light on or off accordingly.
“The Siemens project has proven that we are able to provide high quality solutions to meet the needs and requirements of our customers up to and including the planning of the lighting management,” the executive said.
With headquarters in Garching bei München, Germany, LEDVANCE is an international company for lighting products and networked light applications that evolved from the divestment of OSRAM in July 2016.
The current product portfolio of Ledvance consists of LED lamps, over-the-counter (OTC) luminaires, lighting solutions for the Smart Home and Smart Building sectors and traditional lamps.
