The World’s Largest Airport in Beijing Lit with Osram’s Connected Lighting Solutions
Beijing Daxing International Airport in China will officially open on September 30. The world’s largest airport covers a total of 1.4 million square meters and is expected to handle more than 100 million passengers per year. Osram’s connected green lighting solution invigorates this mega structure by giving it a light-filled and people-centric indoor space.
Osram has installed over 1,300 LED luminaires controlled intelligently by a central system. Smart lighting from Osram provides pleasant bright light at all times of the day and is particularly energy-efficient. It reduces energy consumption by around two thirds compared to traditional systems.
Beyond uniformity and pleasure to the eye, the lighting system aims to make the Airport a greener infrastructure as well. Via a DALI protocol, the LED lights interconnect with the vast KNX control system throughout the overall structure, allowing the central control room to manage each individual unit like the cockpit of a space shuttle monitoring the whole vehicle. Brightness, working hours and working units can be pre-set to meet desired effects. Such an advanced mega-system benefits the airport management with a considerable power consumption reduction by 2/3 compared to traditional mechanisms.
