STRONG BRANDS SIDE BY SIDE FOR THE NEW AIRPORT OF ISTANBUL

24 February 2017

Works rapidly continue at the Project of New Airport of İstanbul which is one of the most important investments of our country with its construction cost and work load. Opening of its first phase is planned for 2018, İstanbul New Airport shall be the greatest airport in the world made from scratch with an area of 76.5 million square meters.

A "Lighting Automation System" which shall form a strong basis for the profitability and productivity of the plant shall be installed in the Project of New Airport of İstanbul and Helvar Lighting Automation System which uses DALI standard (EN32386), most preferred lighting protocol all around the world, shall be employed.

By choosing Helvar’s Lighting Automation System which shall have a complete solution for the project by means of being the producer of both the automation and DALI components:

  • A very serious shortening shall be provided in the time periods foreseen in the testing and start up processes of the project,
  • A significant saving shall be ensured in the quantity of the used automation cables as Helvar uses two standard open protocols in the infrastructure such as DALI and TCP/IP and is able to communicate over the automation cable with both DALI armatures and sensor and control panels.

Lighting in all areas in the scope of the project shall be monitored over a central software, the data shall be stored in a center and energy expenses computed.

It shall be possible to control open/close commands connected to the key and the presence detector used in some locations in the service areas used in the plant (IT, electricity, mechanical, transformer etc. technical and storage volumes, corridors, entrance, lobby, stairs, WC, bathroom, change rooms, mosque, prayer rooms, personnel parlors and offices). Also it shall be possible to monitor these commands over the central automation computer and top integration software and control them depending on the schedule and operating program.

On the other hand, it shall be able to control the light level of the individual or group armatures connected to the key and/or the presence detector used depending on the location in the public areas (offices, stairs, lobby, corridor, entrance hall etc. circulation areas, arrival / departure lounges, gates, bridges, ticket and passport check and counter areas, food sections), and also it shall be possible to monitor these commands over the central automation computer and top integration software and control them depending on the schedule and operating program. Again, emergency lighting armatures and guide signs in these locations may be monitored over the lighting automation and functioning and operating tests can be made according to the operating plan. Thereby, sustainability and availability of the batteries  shall be ensured.

Lighting posts at the whole apron shall be DALI driver controlled and lighting control connected to the daylight sensor shall be provided with the light level adjusting feature of  DALI so to ensure fixed level according to the apron lighting post values depending on the exterior daylight.

Lighting Automation System of the New Airport of İstanbul shall be implemented by Elekon, Turkish disitributor of Helvar recognized with its experience in similar size projects and the field of engineering and powerful site team.
