Further added benefits include Imagine’s ability to integrate and connect to other building systems and data services for intelligent building optimisation and analytics.
First DALI-2 Multi-master Customer Case – Tampere University of Applied Sciences, Finland
Helvar has been providing DALI control solutions to Tampere University for several years. It is the second largest University of Applied Sciences in Finland with over 10,000 students. In November 2020, the building upgraded to the DALI-2 Helvar Imagine 950 solution. “The 950 Router was chosen because we have worked with Helvar for years, so it was a natural update for the existing lighting systems we have here in the university,” acknowledges Heikki Seppälä, Maintenance Engineer, Tampere University.
“We provide education for lighting and lighting control systems, so for us and our students it’s important that we have access to the latest lighting control technology,” commends Kari Kallioharju, Senior Lecturer, Building Services Engineering, Tampere University. “Another aspect of good lighting and lighting control is to support health and wellbeing of our staff and students. This latest project with the 950 Router complements our existing system. It also responds to the changing requirements of the future. We continue the cooperation with Helvar in the future because it’s always a pleasure to work with the front runners.”
