What is Lighting Automation? How is Lighting Management in Buildings Done?
Our expectations are increasing in our living spaces. On the one hand, we want to increase our comfort while saving energy. Establishing this dual balance actually means that you use your system most efficiently. Automation becomes inevitable. Well, wouldn’t we want to install your automation equipment, which is quite a lot, not to be simpler, more complex after the assembly phase? It is very necessary to talk about the WAGO Lighting Management system at this very moment.
In the past, when your lighting system had to be programmed, you had to consult a specialist and do maintenance every time. Because every change you made was to process the automation control systems that are the brains of the system and to revise the software.
WAGO Lighting Management is your new lighting control and management system that we want to reduce our expenses, save time and apply your personal automation preferences to the system.
Some things can change over time. Especially when it comes to lighting automation, we may have more requests. You may want to open new sections in your work area or combine two existing sections. To give you the simplest example, you may want to divide your work office and make a new room and divide your lighting into two separate groups.
You may want to operate the brightness of the lighting on a different level after a period of use in the lighting automation system that has been installed. You may want to change the time settings of the presence or motion sensors you have used. By using daylight coming from outside, you can obtain constant energy consuming lower energy. By adding a special or official holiday program to your system, you can request that your lamps turn on automatically on those days. You may want to make changes to the working start and end or midday. Here, you can easily make these changes by yourself or your authorized maintenance personnel without being a software developer.
What kind of protocols does DALI support?
In this regard, WAGO dali illumination automation is flexible. WAGO controller also works seamlessly under protocols such as Ethernet, KNX, BACnet. In the lighting automation system, each luminaire can be controlled individually or in groups. In case of failure in the illumination branch terminal, automatic configuration is simplified by defective product replacement. Maintenance costs are low. An advantage of the WAGO DALI Lighting System is that it maintains the lamp voltage to extend the life of the lamps by 30 percent. Since the lifetimes of Dali ballasts are longer than normal ballasts, the system has a long service life and low maintenance costs. Dali does not only get the fault status information of all lamps and ballasts, but also makes it easier for maintenance personnel to respond to the malfunction.
Emergency lighting kits are also safer with DALI lighting automation. It periodically checks the battery and failure conditions of the emergency lighting kits, and no possible interruptions are encountered. WAGO offers the advantages offered to the end user of the system to the employee during the assembly phase. The complex cable structure, which the assembly companies look at, is very simple with the WAGO DALI lighting system. Sensor, button, DALI ballast trio are connected to the DALI line in series or in star form, no independent wiring is required. It can be connected without polarity and any topology. In addition, the WAGO sensor and button do not need an external supply line. This system means 50% wiring and cable savings compared to other 0-10 V signal automation systems.
WAGO Lighting Management allows Google Chrome, Safari etc. via a browser without any extra software to the lighting automation controllerBy connecting, you can easily make your requests we counted. You can also monitor your system’s 3-phase energy from the browser page you are connected to. Smarter systems, simpler solutions; WAGO Lighting Management.
