Orkla decided to invest in the Philips GreenManufacturing system, which offers smart, energy-efficient LED lighting and wireless lighting controls. 30 Pacific LED fixtures with wireless occupancy control were installed in the 480m2 treatment plant. The result was a crisp white light (4000K), which helps create a more comfortable working environment.
The 6 wireless movement-detection sensors have been placed in strategic positions to ensure full movement detection coverage. The wireless sensors detect movement and ‘talk’ to the Pacific LED fixtures and give them a command. “When someone enters the building movement is detected in an area, and the lighting is switched on to 100% output” explains Persson. “And when they leave the area and no movement is detected for 5 minutes the lighting dims to 20% output level. After a further 5 minutes of no movement detection, the lighting switches off completely. We’re saving energy every day because lighting is only being used when it’s needed.”
The new GreenManufacturing lighting system is excellent,” says Persson. “We’ve reduced energy consumption by 74%, which is a huge saving.
