CA The first phase of the lighting project focused on replacing the existing fixtures in the high-bay warehouse space with intelligent LED fixtures. INTELLIGENT SOLUTIONS 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- Peak Performance Intexure Architects wanted a studio that integrated work and living spaces.

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 facility. "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." Scan the QR code for detailed product information. SAVINGS JUSTIFIES FACILITY-WIDE CONTROL The project's outcomes more than exceeded the Dassault team's expectations in lighting performance and energy savings.
