Energy saving made easier

Published

DALI MULTI 3 – a new system from OSRAM AG (Munich, Germany), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Siemens AG and one of the two leading light manufacturers in the world has innovatively made lighting control easier and more efficient.

The service being rolled-out by Vishelectric in Kenya has been adopted by Safaricom a leading mobile service provider as well as IBM which has just opened its Eastern African headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya.

Paresh Shah, the managing director of Vish Electric notes that with DALI System, one is able to save up to 80 percent of energy.

Daylight and presence-dependent

Offices have a lot to benefit from this technology. In offices, it is possible to save a lot of energy if the available daylight is integrated in the lighting concept. The artificial light from luminaires is dimmed automatically on the needed light level.

Combined with presence detection the lighting can be controlled even more energy-saving because the light is only switched on if anyone is in the room.

With a diameter of only 50 mm and an installation height of 21 mm, DALI MULTI 3 is the smallest adjustable recessed ceiling sensor on the market and provides architects and lighting designers with manifold possibilities of use.

While other systems are still “thinking”, DALI MULTI 3 has already acted. The new, miniaturized sensor system allows instant presence detection and a continual adjustment of the lighting level to the daylight.

Manifold possibilities

Due to optimised regulating characteristics, DALI MULTI 3 ensures even greater precision in the daylight linked control of artificial lighting, making the latter more effective with greater energy savings than conventional lighting control systems.

The use of the smallest adjustable recessed ceiling sensor on the market allows lighting solutions that provide architects and lighting designers with manifold possibilities. The recessed sensor controls the lighting situation without disturbing the uniform ceiling appearance.

DALI MULTI 3 can also be provided with the easy-to-use and effective Enocean radio technology, which requires no batteries and is maintenance-free. A total of 32 luminaires can be connected to a DALI MULTI 3 control unit. Up to four control units can be synchronised for central presence detection.

This makes it possible to accomplish any concept – from individual and group workplaces to open-plan offices. The result is lighting solutions with up to 60 per cent increased efficiency – and that with comparable lamp technology.
