Siemens Campus Erlangen Lighting Installation
A new lighting solution from LEDVANCE has been installed at Siemens Campus Erlangen in Bavaria to provide ordinance-compliant intelligent lighting in office spaces that are used for a variety of purposes.
The luminaires were adapted to the existing architectural conditions and integrated into the existing ceiling concept for a simple, unobtrusive installation.
Selected for LEDVANCE’s LINEAR INDIVILED direct and indirect luminaires can be controlled via DALI and is also equipped with sensors for presence of employees and daylight detection. A lighting panel operating with DALI control gear provides the 500 lux lighting required by the local workplace ordinance.
“When selecting luminaires for Siemens Campus Erlangen, the existing suspended ceiling surfaces were a particular challenge,” explains Oliver Wehner, Project Sales and Verticals DACH, 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.”
The advantages of choosing these luminaires include a high level of lighting comfort with direct/indirect beam characteristics, good glare control (UGR≤19) and low maintenance requirements at low operating costs. A further advantage of this 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.
Although brightness is kept constantly at 500 lux, in the event of strong daylight entering the building from outside, the system dims luminaires, as required, saving energy and ensuring uniform lighting comfort.
According to the manufacturer, the particular combination of lighting solutions used in the project can reduce lighting energy costs by 63 per cent when compared to conventional T5 technology.
