Smart Lighting Control for Warehouses: PIR Motion Detectors and smart LED Lights

Modern lighting controls are commonly associated with office buildings, which seek to create ‘work-friendly’ lighting for their employees; it is necessary, however, to take a look at smart lighting control for larger buildings. Advocates of lighting controls insist that the use of modern lighting should not be restricted to office buildings. Key figures in the lighting industry such as CP Electronics say that smart light systems are suitable for a variety of large buildings, such as warehouses and schools. A key factor to be considered when lighting large buildings are motion detectors. For instance, in a warehouse, an indoor loading bay may only be used for an hour during the day. If the lights were to remain on for the entire day afterward, it would be a complete waste of energy and money. A key argument for smart lighting control in warehouses: Functionality When a warehouse has varying shift patterns with different lighting requirements, a networked solution (whether it be wired or wireless) could be advantageous. A major advantage that comes with a wireless network, such as the CP Electronics An-10 system, is the ease of installation. Furthermore, it is flexible as you can move and scale it as you see fit. However, a wired system may be preferable in very large installations. These environments are sometimes hostile to electrical interference disrupting wireless connections. In terms of smart light functionality, there are other factors to account for, such as the minimum amount of light needed in an area for safety. For instance, in an unoccupied outbuilding, you may want minimal lighting to ward off potential intruders. One of the important considerations in regard to functionality is ‘ease of use’ that will all but eliminate the need for end-user intervention. The ultimate goal with systems such as these is for them to be hands-free, in order to save time. A core argument for smart lighting control in warehouses: lower costs Warehouses are similar to office buildings in numerous ways. There needs to be multiple control scenarios to suit different areas of the warehouse. Light may be in constant use during standard working hours in one office, and used barely at all in other areas (such as loading bays). Advances made in lighting control technology allows users to have more oversight of their energy consumption. At present, lighting can account for over half of the total energy budget used in warehouses annually. This is an exorbitant amount that can only be explained by energy wastage. Many manufacturing companies provide smart light systems that make use of modular light controls. CP Electronics, for example, have manufactured the Vitesse Plus system, which has a range of features that will drastically reduce costs.Buy Vitesse Plus at Sparks How do smart lighting control save money? The PIR motion detector PIR (Passive Infrared) detectors are a lifesaver when it comes to controlling light usage in warehouses. They operate by detecting moving heat; in a warehouse, this may be caused by the workers or machinery in motion. It is essential that the correct form of detector is used - in large spaces such as warehouses long-range detectors are necessary. They should be placed at a decent height and without obstructing of their line of sight. Alternatives to PIRs come in the form of microwave or High-Frequency (HF) detectors that use low power radars to detect moving objects. However, one downside is that warehouses contain other moving objects that may trigger the microwave or HF detector unnecessarily. Even some loose packaging may cause a ‘false trigger’. PIR detectors also incorporate lux sensors to ensure that areas are only lit if there is not sufficient daylight present. This provides an intelligent way of making use of natural light to ensure energy savings. Why your warehouse should use an LED smart light system The use of smart lighting provides a number of advantages to warehouses, the key one being in energy efficiency. Smart lighting allows for better optimization of lighting during critical working hours. It would also be wise to use a system that utilizes eco-efficient LED bulbs. You will be saving even more money. There are other advantages provided by most LED light systems, as outlined here.1. Better dimming capabilitiesLED lights that are compatible with dimming controls are an important aspect of achieving energy efficiency. Unlike traditional lights, dimming the LEDs won’t affect the lifespan and long-term quality of light emitted by them.2. Energy-efficiencyLED drivers use very little energy. The combined power consumption of both the light and controller is still significantly lower than those of traditional lighting systems.3. Minimal heat emissionConventional lights get hot after extended use, while LED lights emit minimal heat. LED lights have become very efficient with minimal heat output which can benefit working environments. Traditional light bulbs emit heat which can negatively affect the efficiency of air conditioning. LED lights do not have this problem.4. Consistent light with no wait timeThe illumination that LEDs provide is constant from the moment they’re switched on until the moment they’re turned off. Good quality LED lights and drivers never flicker and don’t require minutes of waiting time to get to their full capacity, unlike traditional light bulbs. You can constantly turn LEDs on and off without affecting their brightness and lifespans.5. Low maintenanceLEDs usually have long lifespans and are robust enough to withstand heavy-duty use. They don’t use electronic ballasts (unlike conventional warehouse lighting) which require regular replacements. The lack of maintenance needed for LED bulbs reduces overhead costs for companies. It also ensures that operations will not get interrupted by scheduled maintenance.Buy LED Battens at SparksFactors to consider when installing a smart lighting control systemControl devices used - One of the first things you should consider when implementing a large-scale lighting plan is what control device you intend to use. Compatibility - If you are investing a large amount of money into the system then it may be wise to contact the light manufacturer. You should ensure the controls you plan to buy are compatible with the lights. Type of environment - You should take care when siting control devices dependent on ambient temperature, and how likely it is to affect their operation and range. Number and positioning of devices - Position your lights so that there are no ‘blind spots’ in the warehouse. It is important that operators of heavy-duty machinery, such as forklifts, are able to easily hit the control device when required. Be assured, smart lighting is the solution for large-scale buildings, which have more complex requirements than regular buildings. If you introduce the appropriate control regime, not only will installation costs be reduced but savings will be made immediately. This is an incentive which is difficult to overlook for any company. If you have any further enquiries regarding the Vitesse Plus system and the smart lighting control systems from CP Electronics, please leave a comment or email us.

Will the Modular Lighting be the Ideal Lighting Solution for Schools?

A large increase in demand for public services, including the education sector, has been fuelled by a booming population and an increase in migration; to tackle lighting in schools, the question is, Will the modular lighting be the ideal lighting solution? Some local authorities have had problems in accommodating the streams of new students applying to their schools. One way in which this problem is being addressed is with ‘modular buildings’. A modular building is a prefabricated building, where individual sections are constructed off-site. The sections are then brought together and combined on-site. This unique construction process means the building's infrastructure will have to be configured differently to normal buildings. This includes the lighting for these ‘modular schools’, whose installation could be a difficulty because the entire building is not made on the same site. This makes planning a functional light system difficult. However, modular lighting could prove a fine solution and meet the needs of the flourishing modular building market. Strains on the education sector that make modular buildings necessary The education sector has predicted diverging fortunes during a potentially big change in industry hiring trends. Demand for British Universities has actually declined following the uncertainty caused by Brexit, and less overseas students are applying to complete their degrees in the UK. However, experts predict a sharp rise in demand for primary and secondary school spaces, and relevant industry training following that. Projections made in 2018 state there will be a surge in demand for London schools, particularly in the next five years. Figures from the London Datastore show that London will need to find places for approximately 4,800 new students each year. This may prove to be a huge strain on the UK education sector. The big question is whether this demand can be met - and how. Modular buildings compared to traditionally designed buildings Modular buildings present a far quicker alternative to traditional ‘brick and mortar’ schools. It is estimated they can be built in 70% of the time it takes to construct a traditional school. The materials used to build them have been designed in a way so that they can be re-used and re-purposed, making them more eco-friendly. Faster construction times result in lowered costs for the building work itself. However, it also enables substantial cost savings in regards to supply chain efficiency and labour costs. This is due to the fact there is less requirement for skilled construction workers. The money saved in construction has not reflected poorly in the quality of modular housing. In fact, they can easily meet high-spec designs, and are adaptable to meet the standards of a school building. They are functional, long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing. We here at Sparks are delighted to offer a range of modular lighting controls. They are convenient not only for schools but for domestic premises as well. What do modular lighting systems and controls provide? There are various modular lighting systems on the market, all of which offer different features. One example is the Vitesse Plus system made by CP Electronics. We here at Sparks supply modular parts from the Vitesse range, which you can find here. The Vitesse Plus offers a great variety of functions, and are useful for both installers and users. It has a built-in pre-set menu with up to four detectors. This allows users to configure and reconfigure the system quickly and effectively in most settings. The Vitesse Plus includes PIR and microwave combined presence/absence detectors. These movement sensors are ideal for eco-efficiency, as they will turn on only when they detect the heat and motion emitted by people. This system from CP Electronics also includes dimming control switches. These alter the brightness of automatically controlled DALI or DSI bulbs. This means you can adjust the lights to blend in with the natural light levels of their surroundings. Not only does this mean that lighting levels are easily changeable, but it also ensures that energy is used in the most efficient way possible.Buy Modular Lighting at Sparks Modular lighting: tackling the key issues that face today’s schools Schools now face greater levels of scrutiny regarding their eco-friendliness, as they must comply with relevant government legislation. Most notably, Part L of the Building Regulations and the BREEAM standards raise a high level of expectation. Thankfully, modular lighting can meet these expectations, as many of them are designed with eco-efficiency in mind. With traditional building methods, the lighting of an entire school can be very inefficient. They have inherent problems with regards to lighting. Lighting controls and detectors must be hard-wired into a junction box. This work costs a lot of time and is a labour intensive process. Ultimately, it will lead to drawn-out project times and burdensome additional costs. With a prefabricated school, the entire plan for the construction of the building is worked out beforehand. This includes - of course - the lighting. Modular lighting offers solutions that address the key issues that today’s schools face. These are as follows: Functionality Installation Configuration Compliance with relevant legislation Modular lighting - why it is the ideal lighting solution for schools The modular building sector offers something distinct from its traditional counterpart. Firstly, their off-site manufacturing process can enable a real competitive advantage in expenses. Local authorities in the UK have often complained about the costs needed to accommodate influxes of new students. Modular schools seem to be the answer to the problem of high costs. They provide ‘plug and play’ solutions to lighting. Plug and play lighting systems are simple to install. Usually, they’re low voltage systems and require little in the way of tools or maintenance. Furthermore, they do away with the need for deeply buried cables. This means you won’t need to call an electrician, so the labour costs for installing modular systems is minimal compared to that of traditional lighting. These appealing lighting schemes are great for the exterior of buildings. They will illuminate the outside of a school in a grand and useful fashion. Real-life proof that modular lighting is the future for UK schools The Ark Byron Academy School in Ealing implemented a Vitesse Plus and Vitesse modular lighting system. They are already seeing the rewards regarding meeting government regulations and helping students with their work rate. The simple and effective design meant fewer parts are now required, which has reduced transport and storage costs. They also cut maintenance costs by eliminating the need to regularly replace failed or rapidly depreciating lamps.Modular Lighting at Sparks Ark Byron Academy School gratefully declared this system had opened up new revenue streams. A school statement read that: Using the modular plug and play electrical lighting solution helped to reduce the construction time from 6 months to 3 months... The easy-fit nature of the Vitesse systems saved the contractor significant labour costs So, it is expected that modular systems such as the Vitesse Plus will play a crucial role in the construction of sustainable modular-built learning facilities. This will be essential in order to meet the anticipated spike in demand for primary and secondary school education in the UK.

Passive Infrared Sensors (PIRs) for Lighting, Ventilation, and Heating

The PIR - Passive Infrared Sensor - is an electronic sensor that measures infrared (IR) light radiating from objects in its field of view and then trigger a certain action in a device or light fitting. They are most often used in PIR-based motion detectors, and they work in conjunction with lights, heating, ventilation, etc. Their main purpose is detecting the presence (or absence) of a human being (or a pet) in a certain area, and then switching ON or OFF the light, the fan, or the heat. The PIRs are of different kinds depending on the lighting loads, location (indoor or outdoor, wall or ceiling), IP rating, usage, etc. Some PIRs are integrated with the fitting: some light fittings come complete with a PIR sensor, and some fans have a PIR integrated for presence or motion detection. On our website at www.sparksdirect.co.uk we have quite a large range of PIR sensors - the standalone units - to help you save energy and make sure you don't waste money just because you forgot to turn the light or the fan off. Ceiling or Wall PIR Detectors from CP Electronics CP Electronics has quite a wide range of PIRs. One of them is the batten mount PIR, a miniature PIR that has been specifically engineered for mounting directly onto a batten style luminaire (see EBMPIR-MB), while another one is a retrofit PIR that allows previously uncontrolled lighting sources to benefit from presence detection and lux level (see EBMINT); these are both ceiling mounted PIRs. For ceiling flush mounting CP Electronics has the GEFL PIR movement sensor that provides automatic control of lighting, heating, or ventilation loads, having a low profile and being almost un-noticeable on the ceiling.If you prefer a wall-mounted PIR, the PDS-PRM no-neutral wall-mounted presence detector combines the PIR presence detection with a time delay function - it ideally replaces a wall switch so that, when the presence of a person is detected, the light turns on automatically.Buy CP Electronics PIR Detectors PIR Occupancy Switches from Danlers The Danlers range of passive PIR infra-red occupancy switches is designed for the automatic control of lighting, heating, ventilation or air conditioning loads. How it works: the PIR switch will switch on the connected load automatically when an area is occupied, and then switch it off automatically when the area has been vacant for a chosen duration. This has the benefits of reduced energy bills and automatic control. When being used to control lighting, the built-in photocell can be used to keep the lights off on bright days. Among the most popular ceiling flush PIRs from Danlers are the CEFL PIR (ideal for false or plasterboard ceilings) and the CEFL Sealed version (ideal for bathrooms and damp areas, sealed bathroom version). They also provide a wide range of batten-mounted PIRs with the new "intelligent" photocell and a range of 5-10m detection; they are cost-effective solutions. Furthermore, they have some ceiling directional PIRs (which can be rotated and lowered, ideal for corridors and aisles), wall PIR detectors, and even some PIR occupancy switch modules (ideal for building into luminaires and for wall/ceiling mounting).Buy Danlers PIR Occupancy Switches Other PIRs: mini PIR, Outdoor PIRs, and Integrated PIRs Besides these two main British Manufacturers of PIR detectors and sensors there are many others, such as the outdoor BB2002 black outdoor wall-mounted PIR (up to 2000W, covers approx. 10m range, can be manually operated) and the BB3027 (2000W black PIR for corner-mounting outdoor, 270 degrees, 10m coverage). For indoor lighting control and with a £1 size is the BEG Luxomat PD9 - circular detection area, ceiling-mounted or directly built-in lamps, or the ceiling-mounted PD3FC circular mini occupancy detector which can be remotely controlled. For small spaces such as wardrobe lighting you can always use the LEDPC in-line photocell for LED striplights or the PIRSENSO mini PIR motion sensor for switching ON/OFF the lights up to 250W (10 sec - 3 mins PIR cupboard switch). The choice is yours: where and for what do you need a presence detector? Is it for indoor or outdoor? Is it for LED lamps, fluorescent fittings, or regular halogen or incandescent lamps?
