Powerful Lighting Management for London Cancer Centre

Delmatic has supplied a lighting management system to The London Clinic’s new cancer centre, providing enhanced control for patients and staff while minimising lighting energy consumption.

Powerful Lighting Management for London Cancer Centre

The London Clinic Cancer Centre is one of the most advanced cancer centres in Europe with eight floors dedicated exclusively to cancer care, diagnosis and treatment. Located at 22 Devonshire Place, the 7,500m2 building contains 47 individual patient bedrooms, 22 day care pods, specialist haematology and oncology facilities and three radiotherapy bunkers housing state-of the-art radiotherapy and radiosurgery equipment and treatment planning areas.

The lighting management system, comprising a range of products from Delmatic’s Metro family of products, uses a DALI (digital addressable lighting interface) control module to deliver digital dimming and scene setting throughout patient rooms and wards, as well as monitoring and highlighting lamp failure. Each room has an entrance scene set panel that enables medical staff to select the appropriate lighting in the room dependent on use i.e. for examinations, treatment etc. Patients have comprehensive control of their own lighting via a bedside plasma touchscreen that also controls the television, window blinds and temperature.

Lighting in core areas is switched via multi-circuit modules based on scheduled commands and presence/absence detection.

A key feature of the specification, by the appointed M&E consulting engineers Cundall, was that the system should be able to merge DALI control across three circuits, as the medical requirements necessitated two lighting circuits plus a central battery circuit per room. The Delmatic Metro DALI Buswire dimming modules enabled the lights fed from the three circuits to be locally controlled together for both switching and scene-set dimming.

The entire lighting system is managed and monitored through graphical head-end software which displays the active status of the lighting and allows
re-configuration of the system through the software.
