Interior Lighting Environment

Typically educational facilities are comprised of several different types of lighting utilizing fluorescent technology. Fluorescent lighting is an efficient and cost effective way of provid- ing consistent light levels and a predictable lamp life for optimum illumination levels. 25-32 Watt T8 fixtures are typically deployed in these tenures including 2 lamp and 4 lamp fixtures and plug-in compact fluorescent. The lighting circuits are commonly segmented into loads that are controlled by 20AMP breakers. General educational applications including entry areas, stairs, washrooms, private offices, open office space, boardrooms and parking facilities use similar lamping types to ensure a consistently lit environment.

Although T8 lighting is the standard for todays lighting designer/Architect and/or Electrical Engineer, older and less efficient T12 technologies remain the dominant legacy lamp type. Designers will recommend a lamp and ballast retrofit to increase the lighting efficiency to meet todays lighting design standards for both light levels and energy efficiency.

The LumiSmart Solution.

In general, educational facilities are over lit and many areas remain unnecessarily lit during

a 24 hour cycle. Furthermore, fluorescent lights are not easily dimmed and continue to

consume significant power even when not required. Deployment of the LumiSmart device in this building type is cost effective, easy to install and maintenance free, enabling a minimum of 30% or more power reduction and associated costs.

Example: 100,000 sq.ft elementary school with a lighting level of 1.5w/ft2 = 150 Kw load 120 V high efficacy fixed voltage ballast 80% Loading on a 20 amp circuit breaker

Based on the data above, the maximum number of T8, 4 lamp 2’x4’ fixtures with a 16 cell reflector is 14. This consumes a total of 1.920 Kw of electricity per 20 amp circuit breaker per hour with an 80% loading capacity. Therefore, based on this lighting load, this space will require the installation of 73 LumiSmart devices. In the event that each circuit is under utilized, meaning, each circuit has a max capability of handling up to 1.920 Kw but actual readings indicate a much lower load, multiple circuits may be ganged together into one LumiSmart device providing the local electrical and/or building code permits circuit ganging.

Based on an MSRP of $2,000.00 USD, the Return on Investment prior to any incentives or Government rebates is 35.6 months. Refer to the ROI Metrics data for a detailed analysis.

About LumiSmart

LumiSmart Intelligent Lighting Controller by Cavet Technologies Inc., the worldwide de facto standard in lighting controls. LumiSmart ILC is the first of a new class of Smart Grid enabled lighting controllers that provide adaptive control of lighting circuits to reduce power consumption using waveform modification and power factor correction. It is compatible with Incandescent, Halogen, Compact Fluorescent & most Linear Fluorescent lighting systems including T5, T8 and T12 lamp technologies running on Electronic or Magnetic ballasts over a range of voltages. It provides an instant 30% or more power reduction, depending on lighting system design, while providing power factor correction with minimal impact on perceived lighting output. The compact size of the unit takes minutes to install in an electrical closet/room and most importantly, for the building operator, there is minimal disruption to the occupants during installation unlike the installation of a complete lighting retrofit system.
