Sony Supply Chain Solutions Singapore (SSCSS) has cut energy use in its warehouse by more than 50 percent by installing energy-efficient and dimmable lighting. It also reduced the number of fixtures required in the warehouse and significantly improved lighting levels.
The lighting retrofit was installed by Fluematic Engineering Services, which replaced the existing 210 400-W metal halide lighting fixtures with 147 400-W metal halide fixtures with acrylic reflectors. Each fixture includes Echelon LonWorks power line-based networking technology to enable remote control and dimming at both the individual fixture and system level.
Echelon’s i.LON energy manager provides system level functionality such as scheduling, and can act as a conduit to other building systems and software applications.
Fluematic Engineering Services expects SSCSS to get a return on its investment in three years.
