Aura Long Life – a simple choice
When choosing fluorescent lamps, the choice was simple: It would be Aura Long Life. The lengthy burn time means lower costs in the form of service and maintenance as you do not need to replace the lamps so often. The fact that Long Life light sources also mean less impact on the environment was also a contributory factor in choosing the light source.
Another measure aimed at safeguarding the environment is to use dynamic light control to save energy. Project Manager Conny Simonsson at Emil Lundgren explains that the system uses presence detection to check if anyone is in a certain part of the building, in which case the facility switches to full light.
«When a presence is no longer detected, the lights dim down to 5-10 % power, which saves energy and extends the service life of the light sources», says Conny
