SubstiTUBE T8 Connected improves smart lighting
The second generation of SubstiTUBE T8 Connected LED tubes have been specially developed for use in car parks with several points of access, factories, warehouses, and corridors. The system solution SubstiTUBE T8 Connected from LEDVANCE allows smart lighting without programming or rewiring which can reduce time and labour costs significantly.
With both the sensors and the SubstiTUBEs communicating via the new ZigBee 3.0 standard, large groups of up to 200 devices – tubes and sensors – can be wirelessly controlled to extend presence detection and the corresponding automated lighting to cover large areas.
For example, with sensors located at several entrances and exits, the tubes can be automatically turned on in sync if someone enters the premises. Therefore, the SubstiTUBE T8 Connected is ideal to meet the specific and demanding lighting requirements in car parks.
The new SubstiTUBE T8 Connected features a Master and Slave mode for multizone control. The factory setting of the multi-sensor is slave mode, yet it can be configured to be a master sensor during network installation.
Thanks to multi zonal dimming, occupancy sensing and daylight ambient setting, the intelligent system of new SubstiTUBE T8 Connected and sensors achieves significant energy savings of 50 percent or more compared to conventional fluorescent lamps, plus an additional 20 to 30 percent via the connected sensor.
The SubstiTUBE T8 Connected comes in a glass design with shatter protection film, has a very high efficiency of up to 150 lm/W, and a lifetime of up to 50,000 hours. The tubes are available in lengths of 1,200 mm and 1,500 mm with a five-year guarantee.
The LEDVANCE Connected Sensors come in two variants for different installation heights: LB (Low Bay) for heights up to four meters and HB (High Bay) for heights from four up to 14m.
