The Chanakya Mall is DLF’s new commercial project in New Delhi where the lighting control systems and automation systems have been executed and installed by Anusha Technovision Pvt. Ltd. (ATPL).
The DLF group has always been a front runner of the retail revolution in the country. Its latest addition to the luxury collection in NCR – The Chanakya, is situated in the heart of Lutyens’ Delhi, and is spread across 2,50,000 square feet.
Reliable Performance and Convenient Operations
The entire mall’s lighting control systems have been designed by ATPL, based upon the lighting load schedule, in two phases i.e.; Phase-1 and Phase-2. The designer’s mandate called for a system that could be easily operated, and more importantly be able to handle the huge lighting loads in the main Atrium area, BAR area, Restaurants, over a long period of time with reliable performance and offer convenience to operations staff, increase lamp life and allow for energy saving. A lighting control system is an intelligent network of dimming and switching modules that allows one to have control of the lights in a space.
Increased Efficiency through Scheduling
An Astronomical Time Clock (with presetting for Dusk & Dawn) has been used where timers are utilised to turn on-off the outdoor and indoor lights at specific times. Life of lamps and ballasts are extended due to reduced run-time which reduces time spent on maintenance and lowers overall maintenance expenses. Advanced controls systems can provide valuable points and credits towards LEED and other similar programs, above and beyond the credits that basic controls offer. Programming allows one to recall lighting scenes and dim different groups of lights with just the press of a single button.
Lighting Control System from Lutron
The Lutron Lighting control system for the mall has been supplied and commissioned by Anusha Technovision Pvt. Ltd. (ATPL). The entire mall’s lighting control systems have been designed by ATPL, based upon the lighting load schedule.
There are various types of lamp load, wattage and the dimming protocol available in this project, and 3 types of Lutron dimming modules which are 230V Direct Dimmable Module, 0-10V dimmable Module and DMX Control (For colour changing LEDs) have been provided. Emergency circuits have been provided in each area to avoid blackout situations in case of power failure. All these have been tied in together as one system and the entire project has been controlled through a network of two processors which was installed at the Phase-1 Atrium and Phase-2 restaurants.
