Helvar in control at historic London hotel11 May 2009
Working in conjunction with lighting designer DPA, project manager Kontrax selected Helvar’s Imagine Rack and Router ranges to control the environment and complement visual effects in the Landau Restaurant and Artesian Bar. Ethernet-ready and incorporating a DMX input and output, the Imagine control range is capable of supporting up to 40 input devices and offers 252 channels of dimming, switching or ballast control. The Image Rack has also been employed at the Langham, allowing discreet dimmer module cooling through its 45_ mount angle and minimising the space occupied by the installation.
Steve Buckley, UK sales manager for Helvar, told II: “The Langham installation is a good example of the qualities Imagine delivers – adaptability, efficiency and simplicity, all combined with the ability to deliver eye-catching results.
“Crucially, the Imagine system of racks, routers and wall-mounted dimmers, with the Ethernet backbone of the new 920 Router, is fully scaleable. This means that the range is suited to a broad spectrum of applications. With the current economic climate, this has proven a great asset, as we’re not offering a product restricted to one sector, be it architectural, residential or commercial. In fact, across Europe, Imagine’s blend of state-of-the-art control and proven dimming technology has been specified on projects ranging from cutting-edge smart homes and luxury yachts to shopping malls and museums.”
