Philips Dynalite has continued its pioneering role in lighting control system management, with the latest evolution of its MapView lighting control software solution/operator interface. In combination with the company’s flagship DLight III Server, MapView provides users with a scalable and simple-to-use software application, delivering unmatched facility-wide lighting control, programming and energy management functionality.
Residing on any standard PC, MapView features a graphical user interface, which provides a detailed pictorial representation of the controlled space, and allows operators to intuitively configure and monitor all load devices on the network. Here, users can drill down to individual lighting circuits, channels and luminaires, and execute a change with a single mouse click.
MapView’s functionality is endless. It enables operators to programme complex lighting tasks into automated macros; make manual changes quickly and easily; implement timed/scheduled events; access a wide range of performance and device-condition data; and perform automated lighting tests.
It also automatically identifies and enumerates all DALI ballasts on the network, including emergency fittings. “This combination of functionality and accessibility makes what can essentially be an extremely complex system, very easy to operate and manage,” said Philips Dynalite energy segment manager, Brett Annesley.
