Applied Technology Lighting Bringing the sea to life Inspiration from efficient lighting


A new aquatic centre in Luton is saving energy and reducing carbon emissions after specifying CP Electronics’ Vitesse Modular 4 lighting connection system which has been used in conjunc- tion with the company’s EBD- SPIR-PRM detectors.


ColorBlast Powercore LED fixtures from Philips Lighting are being used at the Brighton Sea Life Centre to create a colour changing display while at the same time helping to reduce energy con- sumption and carbon emissions. A feature of the Brighton Sea Life Centre is a gothic style underground arcade that passes between the exhibits. However, until recently the arcade had painted sur- faces and stark white lighting that did little to enhance the visitor experience. During the winter of 2011/12 the walls and ceilings were stripped back to dis-


play the original stonework and masonry and the new LED lighting was installed. The ColorBlast fittings are used to cre- ate a rolling wave of colour along the length of the arcade. Initial thoughts were to use just blue and green to simulate the oceans but trials showed that a wider range of colours enhanced the displays by continually changing their appear- ance. The ColorBlast fittings are also supplemented by Vaya LED floodlights above some of the tanks. Philips Lighting www.philips.com T: 01483 298 677

Known as the Inspire Luton Sports Village, the new £26m centre has been constructed through a partnership between Luton Borough Council and Luton Learning and Community Partnership and includes a 50m, eight lane pool with world class diving facilities, a 20m five lane community pool, a large sports hall, gymnasium and dance studio. At the heart of the design are a range of sustainability features and one of the key areas that has been addressed through the lighting control system is the variable occupancy of many of the spaces. Specified and installed by MITIE, the CP system provides presence and absence detection throughout a range of spaces including offices, changing areas and toilets. In some areas the system is configured so that lighting is


switched on manually and then switched off automatically when the space has been unoccupied for a pre-set period of time. In other areas automatic on/off is employed. The sensitivity of each detector is adjustable, so that the different layouts of each space could easily be accommodated. Installation of power and lighting control cabling was facilitated by the design of the Vitesse Modular 4 marshalling boxes, which feature a spacious wiring compartment for connec- tion of power, and pluggable control inputs and outputs using the pre-wired leads supplied with the detectors.
