Improved control, significant cost savings and simple configuration were the key requirements for the entire lighting management system for the new Zayed University in Abu Dhabi. These requirements were met by the winDIM@net lighting management system from Tridonic.
The winDIM@net software from Tridonic provides for simple configuration. It enables both normal and emergency DALI lighting loops to be linked directly with the TCP/IP network via proDIM BC9000. As a result, all the lighting in all 38 buildings can be easily monitored and controlled from a single PC. proDIM BC9000, which therefore acts as a central modular gateway for communication between the DALI and TCP/IP protocols. At the Zayed University all the zones are controlled by DALI MSensors for motion-dependent and daylightdependent regulation, together with DALI group controllers for switched and manual dimming control.
“This system does not need any special cables and also avoids the need for additional cabling. We have therefore achieved considerable savings in material costs and installation time. In view of these factors, the Tridonic solution is proving to be highly cost-effective”, added Mohammad Darwish.
