NAPP Pharmaceuticals based at the Cambridge Science Park in Cambridge employed both the consultancy and engineering divisions of SGCI to provide detailed design and commissioning of a complex lighting control solution based on the open standard of DALI for their interstitial plant area within building 191.

Our consultancy services worked closely with the client to understand their requirements which led to a design solution based upon the LOYTEC L-DALI system complete with networked multi-PIR sensors at points of ingress and egress from the Interstitial plant area, a 12.1" touch screen for local user (and remote via VNC) visualisation along with network redundancy byway of industrial Ethernet switches with dual power supply feeds. The main control panel was also dual fed from both UPS and Generator standby power systems.

One of the major requirements was for the client to identify failed lamps/ ballasts as well as conduct their emergency lighting tests remotely from the space and be able to record the results.

This was easily achieved by using the L-DALI system as the L-DALI multi-master controllers along with a L-INX Automation server provides the automatic testing and monitoring of the emergency lighting as well as the constant supervision and monitoring of all lamps and ballasts within the Interstitial area. By using DALI technology and the L-DALI system throughout the installation it was possible to achieve this high level of lighting control and management.

The clients engineering team also benefited from the L-DALI system as a remote VNC link into the L-DALI system touch panel provides a Graphical User Interface as well as a diagnostics portal via the L-DALI multi-master controllers inbuilt web interface.

Emergency lighting test results and any system or component fault i.e. failed lamp, ballast or emergency control gear are reported by email to the engineering manager/ supervisor across the NAPP intranet.

Total project cost incl. Consultancy fees = £23, 370.00
