KNX provides lighting control for O2 in Dublin

KNX UK, Andromeda Telematics, lighting control

Andromeda Telematics was shortlisted in the KNX International awards presented at the 2010 Light+Building Exhibition for the renovation of the O2 project in Dublin. This integrated control solution for lighting delivers KNX/DALI colour-change functionality and testing for emergency lighting.

This a huge entertainment venue, and the system signals exits and provides emergency lighting. The creation of a perception of the venue as energy conscious was achieved using a sustainable KNX design.

Cutting-edge building services were integral to the relaunch of O2, with lighting playing a major role, and lighting control being used in a practical sense.

The KNX/DALI solution includes building-wide lighting-scene control for public areas controlled via local touchscreens and a central headend. There is also local scene control and dimming in the private bars, as well as local control in all back-of-house areas for over-riding the lighting condition.

The use of KNX technology reduced cabling requirements. The lighting-control strategy has proven to reduce energy consumption by up to 60%, with presence detection and lux sensors using lighting only when required. Installation and commissioning work was completed in five months.
