Project Details:

AutomateNow were contracted by THG Electrical to design, procure, programme & commission a DALI Addressable Lighting Control System for the South Australian Power Networks IT Offices. The arrangement of the two large floors of office space leant itself to a Philips Dynalite multi-Universe DALI Addressable lighting system with DyNet communications layer.

AutomateNow provided the SAPN IT Office with sophisticated Area Cascading strategies, to enhance safety, comfort and energy savings, through the use of adaptive pathways. The distinct green circulation pathways are illuminated upon occupancy detection and remain as such until the system is satisfied that the tenancy region in question is completely unoccupied. A manager of a staffer assigned to an office farthest from the lift lobby can always be assured that safe access and egress is available, regardless of whether anyone else is in the building.

The system provided an opto-isolated DyNet2 Lighting Control Network between the Ground and Level 1 Distribution Boards to form a robust Distributed Intelligence control system, programmed with predefined behaviours for operating each of the areas of the building based on whether it was deemed to be in Office-Hours or After-Hours. At the end of the scheduled day, the large open office areas gently pulse their lighting to alert any remaining staff that the lighting is commencing a gradual fade to off. Should any staffer wish to stay back and work after hours, they can attend the lighting control display panel for their respective open office and request a short, medium or long extension to the lighting – at the conclusion of which, the pulse and fade to off will reoccur.
