Applied solutions – illumination design

In this stage, when a comprehensive upgrade of artificial lighting is attempted, simulations are run to specify the optimum LED luminaires. A design of the artificial lighting for a production floor, a showroom, a shop, or an office is based on the knowledge and experience of its design engineers. Considering the colour and illuminance of light and the optical performance of lamps, the light distribution is specified to match the area of new luminaire installation. An electrical lighting system can be provided with extra functionalities, like the DALI control, which can improve the worker’s comfort and productivity. The artificial lighting design should also specify the electrical power consumption before and after the upgrade of the lights. The artificial lighting design should also contain a specification of existing and planned power consumption and planned energy savings.

LED lighting – installation of luminaires

The new light sources should be installed without impeding with the production operations on site and with strict respect for the safety requirements. The lamps should be replaced by experienced professionals and the replacement is best specified in detail in the installation plans.
