When replacing luminaires with LEDs investors wonder about the benefits of lighting control. Manual operation of many lamps spread over a wide area is usually problematic. This applies to the lighting of a warehouse, hall, office or street infrastructure. To simplify the operation of multiple light sources and increase energy savings for lighting, an automatic control system can be installed.
Therefore, in this article we have included information on:

  • modern solutions in LED control systems,
  • the benefits of lighting control,
  • an innovative approach to luminaire management.

Modern LED lighting control systems

The pace of upgrading office, industrial and street lighting as well as the novelties introduced is increasing. This is related to energy consumption and the technical condition of luminaires located in the facility. In lighting upgrade projects, businesses are increasingly investing in automatic control solutions dedicated to LED luminaires, both in work areas and in outdoor lighting In this way, the illuminance level and the power output of the luminaires can be adapted to the needs of the users. The comfort of using such solutions is definitely higher than in the case of a system with manual lighting control.

Tangible benefits of lighting control

For large systems, turning the lighting both on and off is time-consuming. That is why, in industrial facilities, commercial buildings or offices, luminaire group management systems are increasingly used. It is an ideal solution that makes it easier to run the business and has a number of benefits.

Luminaire control optimises electricity consumption

There are many benefits to controlling lighting. One of them is the lower consumption of electricity used to run the system The use of motion sensors comes in handy, e.g. in passageways, which adjust the operation of luminaires based on the activity of people in their vicinity, and optimise the lighting intensity.
Lighting control can also be based on a preset schedule. In this way, the light sources will turn on and off at a certain time.

Use of lighting control systems vs. daylight

The maximum use of sunlight indoors also has tangible benefits. Adjusting the light intensity based on the amount of daylight entering the room and focusing the luminous flux where necessary provide savings. It is possible, with the use of sensors, to easily reduce the power output of the luminaires, which in turn results in significantly lower energy consumption.

Innovative management – a different approach to lighting control

The continuous development of the industry related to lighting automation is associated with the introduction of new solutions that have further benefits. The functionality of LED luminaires, combined with intelligent control and cloud data transmission or Big Data, is an innovative approach. With sensors installed in the luminaires and the connection of lamps to the control system, it is possible to send their parameters to a dedicated platform. This in turn allows for monitoring of, among others temperature, operating time or power output.

How does this affect the lighting control?

There are many benefits of this solution. First of all, data in the cloud can be analysed on an ongoing basis by the responsible person. Another advantage is the ability to automatically generate current reports on the condition of the luminaire. Therefore, and by sending possible failure alerts, this can guarantee the continuity of the system operation. On the other hand, users can fully control the comfort of work.

Lumens to watts – how to convert the luminous flux?

The luminous flux of LED lighting is given in lumens. With traditional light sources, on the other hand, the luminous intensity was usually determined as the power they consumed in watts. To be able to at least compare the two sources to some extent, it is necessary to convert lumens to watts. Therefore, in this article we address this issue.
