DALI Lighting System for Manchester Airport, Terminal 2
saves money and protects the environment In terminal 2 of Manchester
Airport, a new and modern DALI Lighting System was installed. Equipped
with LOYTEC components, the highly efficient system allows annual
savings of approximately 3,000 MWH.
Responsible for the implementation was the British LOYTEC systems integrator Calon, who integrated the modern DALI lighting system with constant light control and occupancy detection, in cooperation with the company Building Environment Controls.
The lighting system is integrated in the airport’s building management system (BMS) and flight control systems via BACnet. This allows automatic configuration at each gate according to the flight departure and arrival schedules, time of day, and ambient light level.
The integral solution includes the following features:
· Daylight and occupancy based lighting control
· Connection to the airport’s “Flight Information System”: The information regarding occupied gates is sent to the DALI lighting system. The set point is raised for occupied gates whereas it is lowered for currently unused gates.
· “Maintenance-free” due to the use of LED technology
The results in terms
of energy savings are impressive. The more efficient luminaires that
are used in the new lighting system, allow replacement savings of
approximately 2,000 MWh annually. In addition, 1,000 MWh can be saved
because of the automatic control functions of the installed system.
Projects for lighting control of the public areas of Terminals 1 & 3 are already in the planning stage.
