Helvar launches energy efficient Bluetooth lighting system10 August 2016
Helvar has announced the launch of the iDim Orbit, a complete room lighting control solution in a single sensor, with a mobile app for user customisation.
iDim Orbit is a flexible solution comprising either one PIR sensor which provides 7m diameter coverage or five PIR sensors for up to 15m coverage at 2.8m height, suited to a range of commercial and public building applications. Its built-in light sensor provides constant light and bright out modes for maximum energy efficiency. The internal time-clock allows for profile scheduling, and it features mobile app connectivity for application-specific configuration using Bluetooth technology.
“iDim Orbit is a revolutionary product for the industry,” said Nick Van Tromp, product manager at Helvar. “Much more than just a lighting sensor, it is a feature-packed energy saving solution that is both easy to install and simple to set-up. It has been developed with the electrical installer in mind, with pluggable connectors and screw-free terminals for fast and reliable installation. Its flexibility allows it to suit an array of environments, including open plan and cellular offices, as well as boardrooms and classrooms. The app is where the solution really comes into its own, providing a huge amount of customisation, all available at the user’s fingertips.”
iDim Orbit’s mobile app features a library of standard application profiles, for example, classrooms, and offices as well as a profile scheduler which enables the sensor behaviour to be altered automatically during the day. Custom profiles can also be configured to suit each scenario, with the app able to adjust a two-stage sensor time-out, absence or presence detection, light level adjustment and dimming channel offset.
