LIGHTCARE has done the impossible possible -together with Ramboll Architectural Lighting Design, Vladan Paunovic, senior engineer Mathias René Toft Rasmussen, and Enerignet´s construction engineer Arne Hartwigsen- in only 12 weeks a miracle has happened.
The world´s biggest full dynamic circadian pendant is now mounted in the control room in Energinet, Fredericia. With a length of 19 meters and a width of 5,6 meters we have conquered Guinness World of records. To make, deliver, and mount a luminaire exactly in the way it is described in only 12 weeks is nothing less than a miracle.
The responsibility, development, project engineering, and commissioning Lightcare did on its own. LIGHTCARE'sshoulders. EVERYTHING in the lamp is Danish produced.
Not less than 102 people have been involved in design, construction, production, permissions, assembling, test, delivery, mounting, and installation of the world´s and specially constructed full dynamic circadian pendant.
The steering of the light is via Lightcare OS, which is a newly developed and breaking software with the possibility for the users to define and customise the light to their specific needs. This breaks with former closed systems.
For the approval of the lamp, a 1:1 prototype of 17cm was printed in 3D of profile and downlight insert. Next, there was confidence that the actual aluminium extrusion of the finished profile and the subsequent profile cutting and rolling of the desired profile design and eventually nature anodization process could be carried out as planned. In parallel, the development, design, layout, documentation and manufacture of 6 different PCBs with no less than 44,992 LEDS were distributed across a total of 174 LED PCBs controlled by 28 specially developed power-controlled flicker-free unit controllers. All LED PCBs are mounted on each heat-conductive aluminium plate. Y-cover and end bottoms in aluminium, as well as all fittings should also be specially made for the task. Next, all opalized microprime covers for the downlight and the clear acrylic sheets for the light had to be produced. 3D printed parts for the 16 downlights which act as individual workplace lighting became an integral part of the finished pendant.
An extremely costly, exciting, inspiring, nerve-wracking, evolving and teacher-like project. Thank you so much for the cooperation of all 102 people involved in the project. Without your efforts, there would have been no miracle.
