A modern DALI lighting system integrated with LOYTEC’s light control and occupancy detection technology is helping Manchester Airport achieve significant savings in energy consumption.

The new DALI lighting system was installed in Terminal 2 of Manchester Airport. British LOYTEC systems integrator Calon integrated the DALI lighting system with constant light control and occupancy detection, in cooperation with the company Building Environment Controls. Equipped with LOYTEC components, the highly efficient DALI system allows annual savings of approximately 3,000 MWH at the airport.

The LED lighting system is integrated in the airport’s building management system (BMS) and flight control systems via BACnet, allowing automatic configuration at each gate according to the flight departure and arrival schedules, time of day, and ambient light level.

The integrated lighting and control solution features daylight and occupancy based lighting control; connection to the airport’s Flight Information System for information regarding occupied gates; and maintenance-free operation due to the use of LED technology.

The lighting control system will be extended to the public areas of Terminals 1 and 3.
