Lighting vision achieved with intelligent B.E.G. system

The DALISYS lighting control system from B.E.G. was ideal for Blautopf School.

Lighting controls specialist B.E.G. has completed the first installation of its new DALISYS system in a new comprehensive school building in Germany.

Blautopf School has a 400sq m learning centre, smaller classrooms and corridors which are occupied for short amounts of time, meaning lighting levels and timings needed to be flexible and responsive to the activities in each space.

The DALISYS lighting control system from German manufacturer B.E.G. was ideal because it can send individual operating commands, triggered by a user or the environment, to multiple zones simultaneously.

The DALISYS is a high-performance, efficient lighting system which works on the principle of distributed intelligence to ensure a high level of operational reliability. Its modular, networkable system is also entirely scalable, as required. This system includes a wide range of multi-sensors including the new B.E.G. PureColour Wellness Sensor for control of light colour in tune with natural daylight.

The B.E.G. DALISYS system was ideal for the school as it will reduce energy consumption and bills by dimming lighting in certain zones of the large space which are not being occupied.

The corridors also had B.E.G. DALISYS sensors installed as students gather together for short bursts in these spaces, during break. The products ensure sufficient light is available during these brief but busy times and then switches the lighting off when there is no activity, combining optimum energy efficiency with maximum convenience.

This product also includes a ‘guided light’ feature which enables it to lead students through the building in a ‘pool of light’. The whole system works on one level, but also vertically in the entire atrium, over different floors. B.E.G. DALISYS sensors can be distributed over several routers, connecting the light across subdivisions. B.E.G. also provided safety lighting.

Paul Jones, B.E.G. UK Director for UK & Ireland, said: “Blautopf School is a great example of an education facility which required a light control strategy which was completely scalable, extremely flexible in terms of fitting around its architectural challenges and which would improve its carbon footprint and reduce its energy costs.”
