Comprehensive lighting from B.E.G.

B.E.G. Lighting controls, Blautopf School

Lighting controls specialist B.E.G has completed its first installation of the company’s DALISYS control system in a comprehensive school in Germany.

The Blautopf School opened for the 2018/18 academic year and has a 400m2 learning centre at its core as well as smaller classrooms. It also has corridors which are occupied for short amounts of time, meaning lighting levels and timings needed to be flexible and responsive to the type of activity occuring in each space.

The DALISYS lighting control system from B.E.G. was ideal for this large building complex because it can send individual operating commands, triggered by a user or the environment, to multiple zones simultaneously.

The DALISYS® is a high- performance, efficient lighting system which works on the principle of distributed intelligence to ensure a high level of operational reliability is achieved. Its modular, networkable system is also entirely scalable, as required. This advanced lighting management system includes a wide range of multi-sensors including the new B.E.G. PureColour Wellness Sensor for control of light colour in tune with natural daylight.

The corridors also had B.E.G. DALISYS® sensors installed as students gather together for short bursts in these spaces, during break-times. The products ensure sufficient light is available during these brief but busy times and then switches the lighting off when there is no activity, combining optimum energy efficiency with maximum convenience.

This product also includes a ‘guided light’ feature which enables it to lead students through the building in a ‘pool of light’. The whole system works on one level, but also vertically in the entire atrium, over different floors.
