Ledvance Siemens Lighting

The lighting solution from LEDVANCE at SIEMENS Campus Erlangen provides ordinance-compliant, flexible and intelligent lighting in the office spaces used for a variety of purposes. The luminaires were adapted to the existing architectural conditions and integrated into the current ceiling concept. 

For this project, two different LEDVANCE luminaires were selected offering the possibility of being hung from the ceiling in a suspended and flexible way. The luminaire LINEAR INDIVILED DIRECT/INDIRECT can be controlled via DALI and is equipped with sensors for the presence of the employees and daylight detection, as well. The PANEL DIRECT/INDIRECT luminaire operating with DALI control gear impresses with its flat design and homogeneous light. With this lighting solution, the 500 lux light in the room required by the workplace ordinance achieved across the board and the customers wish for flexible use of space is thus fulfilled.

Oliver Wehner, Project Sales and Verticals DACH, LEDVANCE said: “When selecting luminaires for SIEMENS Campus Erlangen, the already existing suspended ceiling surfaces were a particular challenge. The new luminaires had to be mounted between the panels on the ceiling to integrate them into the lighting design. Furthermore, SIEMENS wanted luminaires with the daylight sensors, presence detectors and a uniform, bright room illumination, so that a flexible arrangement of the furniture in the room is possible.” 

The advantage and reason for choosing the selected luminaires are to benefit from their high level of lighting comfort with direct/indirect beam characteristics, their glare control (UGR≤19) and their low maintenance requirements at low operating costs. A further advantage of this LEDVANCE solution is that the sensors for the presence and daylight detection are integrated directly into the luminaires. Independent of the building management system, they automatically detect whether the room is in use or not and switch the light on or off accordingly.

Wehner added: “At the end, I would like to mention that SIEMENS project has proven that we can provide high-quality solutions to meet the needs and requirements of our customers up to and including the planning of the lighting management.”
