The first phase of the lighting project focused on replacing the existing
fixtures in the high-bay warehouse space with intelligent LED fixtures.
The first phase of the lighting project focused on replacing the existing fixtures in the high-bay warehouse space
with high-bay intelligent LED fixtures. These low-occupancy areas, with racked aisles for pick-and-pack functions, have facility personnel entering and exiting at
only 30 to 40 sec. at a time. Therefore, when people are
not in the aisles, the lights can dim during the day or
turn off at night.
After securing the economic and environmental ben-

efits of the new system in high-bay spaces, Dassault needed a suitable lighting replacement for the low-bay areas of
the facility, previously illuminated with T8 fluorescents
and 175-W metal halides. Covering roughly 30% of the
distribution center, the low-bay areas serve quality-assurance functions. In this area, employees require high light
levels to read barcodes and take pictures of aircraft parts
and components. When it was time to select a lighting
solution, they chose Digital Lumens' LLEs (linear intelligent LED fixtures).
The combination of these two intelligent fixtures provided the distribution center with a solution for facility-wide intelligence, giving the facility manager the ability to control all fixtures in all spaces-individually or
grouped-through the LightRules platform, and track
operational patterns and energy usage across the entire
"Having the ability to change the schedules and the
light levels anywhere in the facility is very helpful," explained Mosca. "Also, being able to see the amount of
electricity used and pull data to show exactly what these
new lights are doing for us is incredible."

The project's outcomes more than exceeded the Dassault
team's expectations in lighting performance and energy
savings. Recognizing the value in controls and being
able to adjust lighting settings to meet facility needs, the
