Welcome to the 2023 edition of lux&lumen!
The latest version of our annual magazine lux&lumen is launched. Here you will find references, case studies, research news and more. Learn about products, new ideas and trends, including our efforts to develop Human Centric Lighting.
Among the stories you can read in the 2023 edition of lux&lumen is how a new lighting system saved 65% of the electricity costs at a sports hall north of Gothenburg in Sweden. You can also read about the installation of so-called Sky Panels at a clinic in Germany, giving patients a better environment for treatment. The new campus in Savilahti in Kuopio in Finland offers modern learning environments to the 3,500 students at Savo Vocational College. Human Centric Lighting creates the framework for pleasant and healthy premises, where the lighting helps to support learning.
Conveying a sense of calmness
The Clinic for Radiooncology and Radiotherapy at Hanau Hospital has state-of-the-art equipment that enables reliable and targeted radiation treatment of tumours and affected tissue. Four SkyPanels from Glamox give the impression of bright daylight in the windowless rooms and thus promote the well-being of patients before, during and after the radiotherapy.
Human centric campus lighting for students
The new Savilahti campus in Kuopio provides a modern learning environment for the 3,500 students at the Savo Vocational College. Human centric lighting helps to create comfortable and healthy spaces where learning is supported by lighting. The colour temperature and intensity of the lighting varies throughout the day, and the timing of the light changes helps improve the well-being, sleep quality and performance of the students.
New lighting in Mimershallen
The Mimers Hus upper secondary school is home to 2,000 upper secondary students and about 400 adult education students. The school also runs Nationally Approved Sports Education (NIU) combining the elite sports of bandy, rowing and handball with studies. Their sports hall recently switched out 160 luminaires and achieved significant energy savings while also significantly improving the quality of TV broadcasts.
Licht and IT; 1+1=3
Axians, the most versatile specialist in digital transformation and energy transition, has equipped its office in Capelle aan den IJssel in the Netherlands with sustainable lighting and a wireless light management system. The switch to LED luminaires alone entails savings of 50 percent on energy costs. With Glamox Wireless Radio this saving can amount up to 85 percent compared to the old situation.
A wireless light management system that is simple to install, set up and maintain
Acquired by Glamox in March 2021, LiteIP designs and manufactures wireless light management systems from its base in Southampton, UK. The company’s innovative light management system has evolved over a decade from a simple idea to one of the most widely used control systems for commercial lighting in the UK – in the Glamox-branded ‘Glamox Wireless Radio’. With more than 1,300 clients and over 700,000 luminaires installed at more than 3,000 locations in the UK, LiteIP must be doing something very right for its customers.
