Hospital features networked lighting control

A MAJOR new wing of a German hospital features state-of-the-art networked lighting control.

Facility managers at Queen Elizabeth Hospital can use simple web applications to optimise the lighting, adjust basic settings and configure specific lighting scenarios.

A sophisticated lighting management system is now controlling all the illumination in the building, part of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (KEH) in Berlin.

This addition has helped the lighting become a sophisticated luminous assistant for both patients and staff – and offers a professional way of regulating daily life in the busy hospital.

The new construction is home to a diabetes centre, a medical care facility, neurology and diabetes wards and various consultation rooms.

The signature lighting design features recessed linear LED in the corridor areas to guide hospital staff, patients and visitors through the new building in a clear and logical manner.

It’s offset from the centre of the corridor to avoid glare to patients being wheeled on beds.

The light is fully connected – using Zumtobel’s LITECOM infinity system – which centrally controls all the luminaires in the public areas.

Integrated sensors help the lighting react to presence and reflect the dynamics of daylight.

As a result, the lighting actively supports the natural human biorhythm and ensures maximum visual comfort, says the company, as the facility managers can use simple web applications to optimise the lighting, adjust basic settings and configure specific lighting scenarios.

When the ‘cleaning’ button is pressed, the corridors are fully illuminated.Touch panels in the reception area allow intuitive individual operation, while hospital workers have the option to adjust illuminance levels and select desired lighting scenes using the lighting management system.

In examination rooms, doctors and consultants can tailor the lighting to suit the particular situation and create the ideal lighting situation for the relevant tests and checks.

The professional lighting in the treatment rooms supports good vision and helps staff enjoy optimal working conditions.

The new building – called Haus 100  – has been planned and realised to suit the precise needs of medical staff and patients. Luminaires are also from Zumtobel.
