The Thorlux Smart System exploits the latest ‘Digital Technology’ to provide a simple, effective method of lighting control which minimises energy consumption whilst retaining high levels of user comfort.
Projects utilising the Thorlux Smart System can frequently benefit from savings in excess of 70% energy when compared with conventional technology.
A discrete sensor integral to the luminaire monitors ambient light and presence controlling output to the correct level, and ensuring that the area is only illuminated when occupied.
Individual Thorlux Smart luminaires may be linked using a ‘Motionline’ two wire low voltage bus allowing luminaires to communicate within a group. If any one luminaire detects movement all connected luminaires within the group will illuminate.
This valuable feature is designed to eliminate the possibility of a user being isolated in a small pool of light, surrounded by intimidating darkness. Motionline ensures that there will always be a well lit comfortable environment.
Motionline wiring also allows other digital signals, for example from wall mounted touch
sensitive Smart Scene plates, enabling scene control of individual luminaires or groups of luminaires.
In some cases it can be time-consuming and costly to make interconnections between luminaires, for example in surface mounted retrofit installations, or in external areas such as open car parks. Thorlux has therefore developed the Smart System further, to its next generation, and now provides the option of full wireless control between Smart luminaires. This new enhanced system, patent granted June 2014, is named Smart TR.
