High Bay Lighting
By combining LED lighting with low power wireless technology such as ZigBee, significant savings can be made on the control circuitry, especially in larger buildings where the control cable would otherwise need to be long enough to reach the operator. The energy efficiency and life span of LED fixtures also makes them an obvious candidate for a high bay lighting solution, where maintenance and repairs to installations of conventional lighting would otherwise require the workforce to be carrying out work at height on a regular basis.
Until recently, metal-halide lamps have been most commonly used in high bay luminaires, though advances in LED technology have meant that instead of vast arrays of LEDs, sngle high power LEDs can be utilised to provide bright lighting in easy to control areas of the building. Smart solutions based on synchronising overhead lighting with the movement of workers or machinery around a warehouse would also be relatively simple to implement using low power MCUs, wired or wireless interfaces and LED lighting, contributing to further efficiency savings.
