Introducing The New Industrial Smart Ranges Posted on Thursday, 20 January 2011 The world's ever increasing demand for energy is rapidly changing our environment and the need for energy efficiency in every aspect of our daily lives has never been greater. Thorlux has produced an Australian industrial Smart brochure which details its industrial luminaires and explains the Thorlux Smart System. The Thorlux Smart System combines the latest “Digital Technology” to provide a simple, effective method of lighting control which minimises energy consumption whilst retaining high levels of user comfort. A discrete sensor integral to the luminaire monitors ambient light and presence, to control output to the correct level, and to ensure that the area is only illuminated when occupied. Lighting can account for a high percentage of energy consumed within a building, especially if uncontrolled discharge luminaires or old technology switch start luminaires are installed. Savings by installation of automatic lighting control systems can reach 70%. For mounting heights above 6m see our Smart Presence Detection Application Guide.
