Edin DSI Convertor solution

Installation of the New Mode Lighting Edin Din rail products.

This recent small works solution designed as a simple bolt-on to an existing LEAX Panel and an centralised emergency lighting system fed from an inverter.

The Edin panel takes over the DSI control of four channels of emergency lighting in the event of a power failure ensuring that the lighting is ramped up to an emergency level.

Dimming Voltmaster – Intelligent transformers!

Working on a recent project I came across these interesting transformers.

They allow connection of lov voltage lighting at greatly increased distance from the transformer while maintaining an optimum voltage.

The system uses a sensing cable which provides a feedback loop (similar in concept to those used in analogue sound processing) to monitor the lamp voltage and voltage drop in the cable and hence compensates for any variation and stabalises the lamp voltage.

The box itself houses a large transformer at the top with an electronic controller below. The units provide luxury service to the halogen lamps giving improved brightness, better colour rendering, longer lamp life and lovely smooth dimming.

The units can be controlled by 1-10v and 0-10v control as standard with DSI and DALI versions available.

These transformers hark back to the old days of centralised transformers but without all the cooper! They offer an alternative to leading edge dimming systems and provide a great solution.

Lighting up the Poles in Glasgow!

The market leading gentlemen’s is opening in Glasgow in the west of Scotland and Lighting control were on hand to renovate some existing lighting controls for the project.

Dedicated to offering top class entertainment in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, Spearmint Rhino has exceptional clubs throughout the UK.

Crowne plaza – Glasgow

Crowne Plaza Glasgow

Lighting controls undertook the programming and  commissioning of the recently refurbished Argyll and Castle conference suites at the Crowne Plaza Glasgow.

Both large Suites have multiple partitions to allow the rooms to be used in different configurations.  Mode evolution packs were used in combination with Key switch plates to provide intuitive functionality. This allows members of staff to recall specific lighting scenes dependant on any room configuration.
