Smart lighting for car parks, industry and warehouses offers energy savings of 50%

09-11-2020 | Ledvance | Lighting Technologies

The second generation of SubstiTUBE T8 Connected LED tubes from LEDVANCE has been specially created for use in car parks with several points of access, factories, warehouses, and corridors.


The system solution allows smart lighting with no programming or rewiring which can decrease time and labour costs greatly. With both the sensors and the tubes communicating through the new ZigBee 3.0 standard, large groups of up to 200 devices – tubes and sensors – can be controlled wirelessly to extend presence detection and the related automated lighting to cover large areas. For example, with sensors set at several entrances and exits, the tubes can be automatically turned on in sync if someone enters the premises. Therefore, the device is perfect for satisfying the specific and demanding lighting necessities in car parks.


The new device provides a Master and Slave mode for multizone control. The factory setting of the multi-sensor is slave mode, but it can be configured to be a master sensor when installed installation.


Due to multi zonal dimming, occupancy sensing and daylight ambient setting, the intelligent system of tubes and sensors attains significant energy savings of 50% or more compared to traditional fluorescent lamps, plus an additional 20% to 30% via the connected sensor.


The tubes are provided in a glass design with shatter protection film, offering very high efficiency of up to 150lm/W, and a lifetime of up to 50,000 hours. The tubes are offered in lengths of 1,200mm and 1,500mm with a five-year guarantee.


The sensors are supplied in two variants for different installation heights: LB (Low Bay) for heights up to 4m and HB (High Bay) for heights from 4m up to 14m.
