A new lighting solution from LEDVANCE has been installed at Siemens Campus Erlangen, providing ordinance-compliant, flexible and intelligent lighting in office spaces used for a variety of purposes. The luminaires were successfully adapted to the existing architectural conditions and integrated into the existing ceiling concept for a simple, unobtrusive installation.
Selected for this project, the luminaire LINEAR INDIVILED DIRECT/INDIRECT can be controlled via DALI and is also equipped with sensors for presence of employees and daylight detection. The PANEL DIRECT/INDIRECT luminaire operating with DALI control gear impresses with its flat design and homogeneous light. With this solution, the 500 lux light required by the workplace ordinance is achieved across the board, and the customer’s need for flexible use of space is met.
“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,” added Wehner.
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 LEDVANCE 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 the brightness is kept constantly at 500 lux, in the case of strong daylight from outside, the system dims the luminaires as required, saving energy and ensuring uniform lighting comfort. Compared to conventional T5 technology, this combination can save up to 63% of electricity along with maintenance costs.
“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,” concludes Oliver Wehner.
