- Lamp efficacy
Lamp efficacy is important because the amount of light emitted from a light source (in lumens) compared to the amount of power used by the light source to produce it (in Watts) is key for energy efficiency. All of the luminaires chosen for this project use the latest LED technology and therefore have a high lamp efficacy and low energy consumption.
- Ballast classification
Controlling the electricity supply to the lamp (Energy Efficiency Index).
- Luminaire distribution
HiPak Pro LED features dedicated individual LED optics for precise light control. This optimised luminaire distribution allows a single row of well-spaced luminaires to be used to correctly light the space. In turn, the quantity of fittings and therefore overall energy consumption is reduced.
- System efficacy
Combining optical and thermal control within the luminaire (luminaire lm/W).
- Presence/absence detection
Lighting controls used in conjunction with HiPak Pro LED detect when the space is empty and automatically turn the lights off to prevent energy being wasted.
- Daylight detection
Artificial lighting which responds to the natural light conditions.
- Constant illuminance
A function designed to produce correct light levels for the duration of the maintenance period.
- Task-scene setting
Allowing the user to set scenes and adapt the lighting to different tasks.
- Timed off
Automatic cut-off can be installed to turn all lights off during unoccupied hours.
- Task lighting
Lighting task areas with the correct amount of light.
- Zoning of lighting
Zoning of lighting
Lighting is zoned according to area use.
- Maintenance schedule
Maintenance must be performed in response to product age, performance and environment.
- Waste light
Eliminating waste light which does not hit the intended target.
Taking advantage of light which is reflected from the surface within the space.
- Visible smart metering
Visible smart metering
Results of actions can be quickly seen as increased or decreased energy use to encourage responsible energy consumption.
A returning Thorn customer, FM Logistic once again approached Thorn to provide the lighting for the new FM Logistic Blonie
storage and office facility in Blonie, Poland. FM Logistic chose to return to Thorn on the basis of the quality and technical functionality of its products.
The lighting objectives for this new 13,600m2 building were to achieve an energy efficient lighting scheme which would
provide an attractive return on investment and low maintenance throughout the products’ lifetime.
For the storage area, Thorn’s HiPak Pro LED offered a solution which would meet all of FM Logistic’s objectives. A robust, low maintenance and energy saving industrial LED high bay luminaire (93Llm/W), HiPak Pro LED is up to 45% more energy efficient than 250/400W alternatives. An integral PIR sensor and DALI dimming maximise energy savings while a dedicated body profile and on board thermal management system ensure LED performance and lifetime.
For the technical rooms Thorn’s Aquaforce II LED IP65 rated luminaire offered a high quality low energy solution. Highly efficient LED (102Llm/W) reduce energy consumption and costs while maximising maintenance lifecycles. Finally, for the offices, Thorn’s Omega LED (75Llm/W) provided the ideal solution with an energy consumption of half that of a 4x18W (T8) fluorescent alternative. Omega LED also offers the added benefit of adjustable mounting options for through-life flexibility.
Results and benefits
All the luminaires installed in the new FM Logistic Blonie facility are LED and have high levels of energy efficiency to ensure low energy consumption. With all the luminaires additionally benefiting from a long 50,000-hour lifetime, maintenance is minimised to save both the cost and inconvenience of frequent maintenance cycles. FM Logistic will benefit from a maximum payback time of five years.
