Tridonic has supplied around 3,000 dimmable DALI ballasts via Luminaire UK for use at Birmingham City Council’s new Woodcock Street office development in Aston. The ballasts are incorporated into luminaires to provide a versatile interface with the lighting management system.
Installed and specified by Birmingham based Luminaire UK, the Tridonic ballasts are being used in conjunction with 2 x 49W T5 lighting in open plan areas, along with a range of other T5 and compact fluorescent light sources. Tridonic has also supplied all of the emergency lighting control gear.
Thanks to the Tridonic DALI interface, the lighting is fully integrated with occupancy sensors throughout the building, so that lighting is only turned on when required. Daylight sensors are also used in luminaires close to windows so that the lighting can be dimmed in relation to natural daylight levels.
