The Warehouse Lighting Solution
The design, supply and installation of an LED lighting and wireless lighting controls system for 3 warehouses located on the Finland Terminal, Queen Elizabeth Dock. The existing 250W and 400W High Pressure Sodium luminaires were to be replaced in the same location for suitably rated, individually fused LED luminaires generally in accordance with TM21, to meet the desired specification. The installation should utilise all existing cabling where possible.
Luxonic was heavily involved in preparing specification in conjunction with the client. Energy usage and employee perception were taken as the starting point, and all proposals compared to this. Surveys showed the 3 warehouses amounted to 60,648.84 m2 of space, and a 152.57 lux average installed light level - dimmed according to user requirement, could be produced for the end users.
The Luxonic Hi Max luminaire was specified in all areas (specific datasheets available here via "MORE" buttons). This dedicated, extremely high efficiency warehouse luminaire was supplied with appropriate glare and luminance ratings. The scheme was proven via a DIALux calculation prior to installation.
The warehouses’ 24/7 working cycles and lighting usage information was collated and the Luxonic Energy Calculator was then used to calculate energy savings. Calculations showed that the new lighting system would provide an outstanding 96% energy cost saving and payback would be achieved in only 2.4 years.
The wireless system was designed to be programmable with an android tablet such as Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 or Tab3 with 1280 x 800 pixel screen resolution. The system had the ability to collate occupancy data for energy usage monitoring and status of the emergency lighting. The luminaires were to be supplied with a presence detector and light sensor. This provided the ability to program the system to make full use of natural daylight, and the illumination of areas as specifically required.
The contractor took responsibility for all installation.
The system was initially commissioned, fully tested and demonstrated by wireless controls manufacturer LiteIP. Representatives from the Estates Department were provided with training, which then allowed them to commission the system as required in future. The whole system was wireless and so reconfiguration was possible without rewiring and without the need to gain access to the light fittings or sensors.
Training was provided to building uses and representatives of the Estates Department. Training documentation and operating and maintenance information was provided.
The client was happy with system performance, proceeding to roll the system out in other premises.
