Controls play a vital role in lighting up any environment and can improve the overall efficiency of a lighting installation. Danlers have recently launched a new range of


Batten-mount PIR occupancy


switches. They are ideal for


switching lights off when not required and Danlers claim energy


savings of up to 50%,


meaning the payback period is kept to a minimum.

between 100 lux and 3000 lux. This technology has a GB patent pending No. 1219746.3.


Some lighting professionals believe that lighting controls hold the key for ultimate energy efficiency. Guy Simmonds, head of sustainable solutions, Europe at Lutron, comments “Although LEDs are in vogue, the real trick is managing both artificial and natural light properly to achieve maximum efficiencies over the life of a building. Although in the past lighting was the ultimate ‘fit and forget’ technology in commercial buildings, there are key strategies that need to be built into an installation from day one to ensure a successful long-term lighting control solution in terms of energy efficiency and occupancy satisfaction.” Simmonds continues “By managing both artificial and natural light properly, it is possible to achieve maximum efficiencies over the life of a building. The strategies that need to be built into a system from day one include the following: ensuring that all of the fixtures


Lighting controls are extremely easy to use and can bring vast energy savings to buildings. In the commercial sector, lighting equates to 43% of the total electrical consumption of a building, so any energy savings we can offer this sector will be significant.

energy savings. A ‘real time’ photocell status LED indicates if the photocell is active or inactive. These UK manufactured IP53 rated controls can switch lighting loads of up to 10 amps and can be mounted onto the end of lighting battens. They detect movement of a warm body within their detection zones (either 5m or 10m variants) and include a photocell which can be set to

Keeping these strategies in mind will maximise the potential of the lighting control solution in terms of
