The new headquarters of publishing company PPMG in Nanjing City are brought to life at night using specially designed facade lighting, controlled through Tridonic’s winDIM@net system.
Through the winDIM@net system the lamps are operated in a colour changing sequence to spell out Chinese characters in blue white and yellow. Through the winDIM@net system, PPMG has central control of the lighting with options for on/off switching, dimming and scene setting. The system also provides monitoring of individual luminaires, feeding back information on energy performance and lamp errors.
Tridonic's winDIM@net software is based on two very unique languages: DALI, the digital addressable lighting interface and TCP/IP, the language of the Internet. The winDIM@net software package is a revolutionary approach to the operation and management of lighting utilising software rather than hardware to limit its functionality. The winDIM@net software is designed to be installed on the client’s existing building Ethernet network, either installed onto the main server or a dedicated PC designated as the “lighting server”.
The entire project demonstrates the power of Tridonic’s winDIM@net system and has created a major visual landmark in Nanjing City, which reinforces the importance of PPMG. Installing winDIM@net on the company’s Ethernet also enhances the company’s overall control of its lighting systems, so that any future re-configuration of the exterior lighting will be quick, simple and inexpensive.
