Delmatic returns to 99 Bishopsgate
Delmatic has supplied a new lighting-management system for the restack of seven office floors of 99 Bishopsgate in London. This project continues Delmatic’s association with the 26-storey building, which was originally equipped with a Delmatic system in 1995. A plug-in upgrade in 2005 converted the former proprietary controls into open LON technology. The current restack introduces the latest Dali dimming technology.
The new system incorporated Delmatic’s 10-output Dali plug-in control modules, Dali presence detectors and multi-sensors, as well as network routers.
The new system was connected to the existing vertical buswire network and is managed and monitored from the existing head-end PC. Graphical head-end software enables lighting to be monitored and managed through drag-and-drop controls and includes monitoring of lamp running times and failures.
Energy efficiency is achieved by presence detection, absence detection and daylight linking. Delmatic’s latest Dali sensors are configurable for presence or absence detection. Delmatic’s Dali plug-in modules provide all the advantages of Dali without needing to address ballasts.
The restack project benefits from Delmatic’s policy of new modules and routers being backward-compatible to previous generations of the system so they can be managed and monitored from earlier versions of software.
