Lighting from German firm Osram has been used throughout Beijing Daxing International Airport, which is due to open next week.
Osram has provided customized LED luminaires in various color temperatures, to fit the requirements of the airport’s different areas, for instance a refreshing 5,000 for the check-in zone and a warmer 4,000 for the seating areas. Unified Glare Rating (UGR) has been lowered to below 19 to eliminate glare and discomfort to the human eye.
Beyond uniformity and pleasure to the eye, Osram’s lighting system also aims to make the airport a more environmentally friendly infrastructure. Via a Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) protocol, the LED lights interconnect with the vast KNX control system throughout the overall structure. This enables the central control room to manage each individual unit. Brightness, working hours and working units can be preset to meet desired effects and power consumption will be substantially lower than that of a traditional system.
