The existing lamps were replaced with 60 new LED Philips OptiVision floodlights providing up to 1500 lux, necessary for certain sports requiring this illuminance. In normal operation, the lights produce between 300 to 500 lux and run at considerably less energy than the previous system.
Through consultation, it was determined that the new lighting could be retrofitted to the existing system – creating significant savings over originally requested linear suspended system. Signify and its partner Powercor provided the structural calculations to ensure the system was secure, and that every single bolt was torqued and marked to the highest degree of accuracy.
The new system also introduces a Dynalite control system Distribution Management System (DMS) so the house and show lighting can be controlled in tandem, providing the level of control and versatility required. Combined with brighter lux levels, the arena can now host an even greater range of events and sports.
