connecDIM provides differentiated and individual lighting moods in the new headquarters of Sattler Lighting.
A new dimension for connected light
The new headquarters of this designer luminaire manufacturers has a floor area of around 2500 square metres and accommodates a large showroom and generous meeting rooms and offices in addition to storerooms and social areas. Production facilities, warehousing, a dispatch centre, laboratories and workshops are also located at the new site. The artificial lighting in the entire building is regulated according to the amount of available daylight by a connecDIM light management system to create the ideal conditions with optimum energy efficiency based on demand.
More than 50 sensors send movement and/or ambient light parameters to the connecDIM Gateway. At Sattler there are two of these, offering a total of eight lines. This provides enough freedom to respond with a high degree of flexibility to any changes in the use of rooms and to any future expansion. The daylight sensors inform the connecDIM Gateway whether, how and in which colour and intensity it should switch on or dim the light. The aim is to provide a minimum illuminance of 700 lux at the workstations. Both the illuminance and the light colour (Tunable White) can be set on the basis of demand. It is therefore possible to control the colour temperature to simulate the changes in natural daylight over the course of a day. The connecDIM system is easy to control in the new Sattler building from a PC or via an app on a smartphone or tablet.
