Tridonic makes ancient art shine in new light

Lighting upgrade at the China Imperial Examination Museum

Flexible dimmable lighting solution with basicDIM Wireless.

In 2015, Tridonic was first commissioned to shine new light on the China Imperial Examination Museum. In 2020 Tridonic implemented a state-of-the-art, flexibly dimmable lighting solution for the museum in Jiangnan that is tailored to the special features of the individual exhibits. The original lighting for the showcases was to be renewed to meet the current guidelines for museum lighting. The colour temperature, colour scheme, glare level and light incidence of the spotlights were to remain unchanged.

To achieve this, Tridonic replaced the original DALI drivers with a total of 150 new Bluetooth®-capable LC 25W 350-1050mA bDW SC PRE2 drivers and 25 basicDIM Wireless PWM CV 4CH drivers. This enables the lighting in the museum display cases to be dimmed continuously from 1 to 100 percent of the light intensity. Due to the wireless technology, no intervention in the line infrastructure was required for the extensive upgrade. The compact design of the drivers was easy to integrate.
