Digital Lumens, developer of the Intelligent LED Lighting System, announced LightRules 2.0. Designed for a broad range of high bay industrial lighting applications – manufacturing, warehousing, cold storage, maintenance depots, hangars, and others – the Intelligent LED Lighting System’s expanded capabilities give facility managers a broader set of tools for managing lighting resources, and greater fixture flexibility when replacing aging HID and HIF lights, or specifying LEDs for new construction, according to the company.
LightRules 2.0, the latest version of the Digital Lumens lighting management software, offers an enhanced set of management, reporting and analysis capabilities: the interactive facility mapping capability uses the building floor plan as a visual framework for managing the lighting system, showing image gradients to highlight fixture use, occupancy patterns, and daylight harvesting usage; the “what-if’ analysis tools evaluate the impact of different settings – timeouts, dimming – on overall lighting energy use and cost; and baseline measurements are used to understand the lighting energy costs of the Digital Lumens Intelligent Lighting System versus legacy lighting alternatives (HID/HIF) or plain LED alternatives.
These are in addition to the daylight harvesting capabilities and other scheduling and reporting capabilities already in LightRules, the company says.
LightRules 2.0 gives facility managers the “simplest and most powerful way to manage their lighting resources for maximum efficiency,” says Michael Feinstein, VP of sales and marketing at Digital Lumens, adding that users have gone from having a breaker switch and a large power bill to having the LightRules dashboard, direct access to all lighting performance information, and minimal lighting bills.
