Prilux participates in the XLV National Lighting Symposium with two case studies
- The study conducted at Colegio San Patricio in Toledo on how the temperature of LED light affects students
- The lighting project to improve energy efficiency in the La Hoya Sports Centre in the town of Jumilla in Murcia.
We took part in the XLV National Lighting Symposium held in Pamplona, giving two talks: one in the Corona Hall on how the temperature of light affects the performance of students at school and another in the Bulevar Hall on lighting in sports facilities.
"For Prilux, participating in this event means becoming an example. To be able to talk about our projects and solutions means to make known the effort we make in the Prilux Group. Our commitment to R+D+i has already become an insignia of the group and a seal of quality for our products", says Alberto Pretel, CEO of Prilux.
The White Adaptative System (WAS) conference was based on the study carried out by Prilux at the San Patricio School in Toledo. After taking measurements for 3 months, it has been shown that the colour temperature change (TCC) of LED lighting directly affects the behaviour of students during the school day. Using Prilux's White Adaptive System (WAS) technology with colour temperature change and integrated control system, three scenes have been created in two classrooms in the school with pupils from 8th PEP (5th Primary Education): Active, with a high level of lighting in a cold tone that stimulates the organism by favouring concentration and focus; Work, with a standard light for reading and writing work and a neutral tone to favour work maintained over time without forcing concentration and avoiding fatigue; and Calm, the minimum light required by the regulations with a warm tone to favour tranquillity and relaxation.
"After three months under these lighting schemes, the first results show significant improvements in attention and concentration. The total number of errors in TEST D2 has been reduced by 64%, the processing speed has been increased by 26%, there has been a modest increase of 3.5% in the reading speed and a drastic decrease of 40% in the number of reading errors as well as an improvement of 10% in reading comprehension", states Alberto Troconis, Head of the Projects Department and Prilux speaker at the XLV Simposium Nacional de Alumbrado.
The lecture on lighting in sports facilities focused on the project, still under development, of the La Hoya Sports Centre in Jumilla (Murcia). Jumilla City Council intends to make a reform to improve energy efficiency in the city's sports lighting facilities by adding regulation and monitoring systems for the total management of sports facilities, and this is the origin of the project presented.
"We have presented a comparison of the installation and way of managing that installation before the project versus the installation and management of that sports infrastructure when the project ends. The council aims, in addition to the improvements that LED technology offers, to have fully connected facilities to be able to manage the facilities comprehensively. By integral, we mean that both the administration and the users themselves can operate and manage the lighting in the facilities autonomously", explains Eduardo Aguado, Systems Sales Manager and speaker at Prilux in this presentation.
