New Ecopoint DALI Dimmable LED Lighting Up Melbourne

18 September 2013

New Ecopoint DALI Dimmable LED Lighting Up Melbourne

Ecopoint’s newest LED lighting product, a tube which features DALI Dimmable technology, is already proving to be a popular choice with commercial landlords and building owners who are looking to ‘green’ their buildings and slash their energy and maintenance costs.

A large order of Ecopoint’s H-Series DALI Dimmable Tubes has just arrived in Melbourne, Australia, where they have been installed in the city’s newest high rise, located at 171 Collins Street in the heart of the CBD. Mining and Resource giant BHP Billiton are the anchor tenants in the building, which offers premium office space. In keeping with the energy efficient qualities of LED lighting, and DALI in particular, 171 Collins Street is a sustainably designed building that is officially registered with the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA).

DALI stands for Digital Addressable Lighting Interface, and is the standard for controllable lighting systems. Ecopoint’s H-series DALI dimmable tubes feature intelligent brightness tracing and breakdown feedback. They are appropriate for use in office, retail, educational, commercial and industrial settings; for new builds or upgrades of existing DALI installations.

Paul Wilton, Ecopoint’s founder and director, said: “DALI technology is one of the most advanced forms of energy efficient lighting technology. This technology is amazing – it is intelligent and has the ability to automatically control and dim each light when it senses that there is enough natural, ambient light coming from an alternative source, like a nearby window.

“It simply cannot be overstated how important this development is; the integration of light harvesting technology with an LED lighting solution. The potential savings that can be generated through a light that automatically dims itself when it is not needed are significant.”

Ecopoint is a Wellington-based, New Zealand owned company that specialises in the manufacture and supply of top quality, energy efficient, LED lighting solutions. Ecopoint’s range of LED lighting solutions includes tubes; including those designed specifically for refrigeration, flood lights, high bays, low bays and panels. All of Ecopoint’s range is mercury and UV free, RoHS compliant and approved to Australia and New Zealand safety standards. Additionally, all of their lights are 100% recyclable and come with a three year warranty.

BHP Billiton is the world’s largest listed resource company. They have secured the top 11 levels of 171 Collins Street, comprising approximately 12,000 square metres of net space for an initial 10-year lease term. BHP Billiton have already fitted out their new space with some 460 Ecopoint H-Series DALI Dimmable tubes.

Ecopoint’s H-Series tube range is a direct replacement for the traditionally used but power hungry T8 fluorescent tube. Ecopoint’s tubes are simple to retrofit and once installed, offer energy savings of up to 70%. Installing an Ecopoint ecoLED tube will save you money through lower energy costs, while its long life (50,000 hours plus) will generate cost savings through reduced maintenance. The light generated is also flicker free and turns on instantly.

“We are really excited that we are have a product like this, and we are delighted with the response to it already. DALI dimmable technology is truly amazing and when used with an LED lighting solution, represents one of the most energy efficient lighting solutions on the market. It is just a matter of time before other businesses catch on and follow BHP’s lead,” Paul Wilton said.
