LIGHTING CONTROL

The lighting industry is a constantly evolving environment, with lighting controls playing a major role in not only increasing energy efficiency but becoming more orientated towards putting the control in the users hands. Regent Lighting Solutions extensive knowledge and experience within the industry puts us in a unique position to not only understand the wants and needs, but also provide a seamless lighting solution in combination with controls.

From small scale stand-alone applications through to large scale lighting management systems, RLS can facilitate the latest requirements in monitoring, facility optimisation and convenience in the growing world of IoT.

TYPES OF LIGHTING CONTROL STRATEGIES

Lighting controls are devices and systems that receive a signal, in order to make a choice whether to reduce the lighting and by how much. The inputs may be manual (human based) or automatic (based on time, occupancy or light level). The outputs are switching, dimming or tuning. The unique combinations of inputs and outputs gives us a variety of strategies that, when properly matched to the application, can deliver satisfying lighting control benefits.

MANUAL CONTROL

Manual controls enable users to turn ON/OFF or reduce their lighting in response to visual needs. Incorporating flexibility provides a selection of light levels and can increase satisfaction while saving energy. Manual controls are ideally suited for personal work spaces such as private offices.

TIME-BASED CONTROL

Time-based controls turn lighting ON/OFF or reduce it based on a time event, saving energy and maintenance costs by reducing lighting when it is not needed. This type of control is ideally suited to spaces that are consistently occupied on a predictable schedule or for site lighting applications.

OCCUPANCY SENSING

Occupancy sensing controls turn lighting OFF or reduce it in response to whether the space is occupied. The sensor may automatically turn the lights ON to full output or a reduced light level, and/or require manual-ON operation (vacancy sensing). This type of control is ideally suited to spaces that are intermittently occupied, such as private offices and classrooms.

DAYLIGHT HARVESTING

Daylight harvesting controls turn lighting OFF or reduce it based on the contribution of daylight to task lighting needs. This type of control is ideally suited to spaces receiving consistent, ample daylight.

TASK TUNING

Task tuning control involves analyzing the local lighting needs in each space and dimming various areas based on need.

BENEFITS OF LIGHTING CONTROL SYSTEMS

ENERGY SAVING
Lights can be automatically dimmed or turned off according to occupancy or available daylight. Reduces or eliminates reliance on occupants to turn lights off; lighting controls do this automatically with timers, sensors or programmable logic
INSTALLATION COST REDUCTION
Wireless lighting controls reduce installation costs and increase flexibility in areas where switches and sensors can be placed
FLEXIBILITY OF BUILDING USE
Lighting controls offer flexibility in lighting a specific office, a group of lights, a section of a floor or a whole floor
MAINTENANCE IMPROVEMENTS
Life of lamps extended due to reduced run-time which reduces time spent on maintenance and lowers overall maintenance expense. Reduces the number of hours per year that the lights are on.
SAFETY AND CONVENIENCE
Emergency lighting is designed to switch on automatically in the instance of an emergency or power outage to help provide lighting to people who need to make their way to an exit or to follow an escape route.
COMFORT, HEALTH AND WELL BEING
Improves employee satisfaction and productivity by providing appropriate lighting levels, minimizing glare and balancing surface brightness.
COMPLIANCE WITH STANDARDS AND REGULATIONS
The use of lighting control system can contribute to energy consumption been reduced and therefore complying to Green Building standards.
