In early 2022, we were contracted by the Carrickdale Hotel & Spa to specify, supply, program and configure a KNX Dimming Control system for ‘Dales Lounge‘.
Some of the core elements of the project included:
- Resolve the existing TRIAC Dimming issues including flicker and flashing of lamps
- Configure pre-defined scenes to suit Day, Evening, Night and Porter light level requirements
- Configure Timers to run each of above scenes including smooth changeover
On this project we utilised the following equipment:
Theben KNX 8 Channel Dimming Actuator (FIX2) (DM8-2T)£519.13 + VAT
Theben DMB 1 Channel KNX Dimming Booster Extension£67.70 + VAT
Zennio Z41 Pro Touch Panel£432.00 – £496.00 + VAT
Lighting circuits were split into 16 channels with majority running as TRIAC dimming whilst 1 circuits consisted of 350mA CC pin spots and required min/max adjustment to achieve a smooth dimming curve. 1 Channel required a dimming booster given the overall load. Each of the configured scenes include all 16 channels and on-site commissioning took place alongside the general manager to select dimming levels (to the increment of 5%) for each of the circuits. In addition we added some other functions including Emergency (all on to 100%), all off (for end of night – Night Porter) and security levels to limit alteration of these pre-configured scenes.
