Tridonic lighting dashboard supervises multiple sites


Tridonic has developed a lighting dashboard to supplement its connecDIM lighting-control solution. This dashboard interfaces with the connecDIM system and opens up the opportunity for the Tridonic system to integrate with the HVAC building-management system.

This dashboard makes it possible to extract and interrogate data that will help users make complex business decisions and gain additional value from their lighting installations.

It has been developed on the Tridium Niagara platform by Forest Rock, which worked with a number of Tridonic customers to understand the best format for the data. For example, a facilities manager can rank sites from a portfolio in terms of kWh/m2 for lighting efficiency. It supplements the cloud-based connecDIM lighting-control solution that use the DALI protocol to monitor energy usage, fault conditions and emergency lighting across all of a client’s sites.
