PEONIA™ Diamond @ ELEMENTS Shopping Mall
Just before its grand opening on July 17, 2017, Legend paid a visit to the first PEONIA Diamond flagship boutique located in the Metal Zone of the ELEMENTS shopping mall (Shop # 2045 – 2046). We’re glad to be just-in-time to witness our proposed LED dimming solution installed for the jewelry shop.
The proposed LED dimming solution is actually very similar to what we had done before in a building main lobby, where the dimming control is done by our DZ1G1TEN (1-10V controller) with Mean Well 1-10V dimmable LED drivers (HLG-320H-24B & NPF-90D-12 in this case) to dim the entire ceiling lighting fixture and the downlights in the shop, which is powered by 5x 320W (1,600W) and 11x 90W (990W) LED drivers. The same lighting control mechanism is also implemented in the office with only two DZ1G1TEN controllers, one for wall wash (LED strips) and one for all the downlights.
Since the jewelry shop client is only looking for a reliable and simple solution and does not have any complicated lighting effect requirements, this simple solution easily fulfills the dimming requirement in the range of 3,000W for the ceiling lights and the downlights for the shop. This very cost-effective solution saves the heavy initial investment that would be required otherwise for a lighting control system, but which is really not suitable for this retail application.
By talking to the Electricians, we’re glad to hear that the Electricians also appreciate the solution, which is very easy for them to organize the LED drivers in the neighborhood, and thus, simplifies their wiring works.
Given the modular design, a single wall plate can have multiple controller modules installed, which saves the work for installing wall boxes and the associated wiring works, which translates to the benefit of having more time for other tasks to meet the tight project schedule. The modular approach also gives more flexibility to match the controller and the LED drivers on the same wall plate, which is easy for the staff to set the proper lighting atmosphere comfortable for their clients to stay longer in the shop.
Since it’s now common to have the 12/24V LED strips as the main ceiling lighting fixture with tailor made shapes & CCT requirements, or for wall washing purposes, the one-to-many type of dimming control between the DZ1G1TEN and the Mean Well 3-in-1 dimming flagship LED drivers, HLG-320/600H, is a very cost-effective dimming solution for this kind of application. It's a good balance of smooth and reliable dimming experience with the costs factor.
As HLG-320/600H are very popular in the demanding applications, this proposed simple enough solution can easily upgrade the lighting control to meet dimming requirements without significant investment. We’d like to recommend this solution to lighting designer/supplier and electrical contractors working with projects in the retail applications!
