Delmatic delivers control of lighting for Cannon Place
The Delmatic lighting-control system installed in the shell and core areas of Cannon Place in London has been extended to the office fit-out of the building. The development includes over 46 000 m2 of offices. The inside-out design of the building, with its exposed skeleton, is an architectural response to its location directly above a mainline railway station.
Delmatic initially provided lighting control for shell-and-core areas throughout the building, scene setting in the dramatic reception area and two office fit-out floors. The latest contract extended the system to the remaining office floors.
Each floor has four potential tenant zones and demands considerable flexibility to meet the individual requirements of different tenants. The Delmatic system gives individual control of each luminaire through plug-in Dali modules.
The system provides presence and absence detection and daylight linking. It can also monitor and test emergency lighting.
Tenants can enhance controls within their own domain by adding scene setting, touchpads and touchpanels. They can also improve energy and operational efficiency by integrating services using the LON protocol.
Modifications to system configuration in response to tenants’ layout changes are made through the system software — including time-out periods of sensors and daylight dimming thresholds.
The complete lighting-control system is managed and monitored through graphical head-end software, which displays the active status of lighting and provides information on luminaire run times and lamp failures in real time.
