Illumination

The design of Illumination is to be in accordance with relevant Australian standards and the MUP Lighting Design Standards.

The following components are to be assessed by the designer with consideration to individual space types.

Lighting / Lux Levels

Lux levels vary depending of the intended use of Space Types. When selecting luminaire fittings and placement consideration shall be given to uniformity, lighting levels, colour temperature and controls.

To Code Requirements

Lighting design is to be provided to meet Australian Standard requirements. The design is to be consistent with existing site installations and sympathetic to the architectural design.

Additional Requirements

Designer to refer to Electrical Design Standard and consult with MUP personnel for additional requirements.

Lighting Control Functionality

Locally Switched

Single gang light switch plates, located in logical positions adjacent to room entry.

Dimming Capability

Dimming capability can be provided via manual or programmable systems. Designer to ensure that lighting ballasts are compatible with the dimming system.

Time Clock

Manual time clocks to be located in switchboards, or programmable time clocks integrated into the lighting control system.

Timer Control

Manual timer switches to be integrated into light switch plates, or programmable time clocks integrated into the lighting control system.

Photo Cell Sensor

Photo cell sensors are to be incorporated to provide energy efficient controls to switch off perimeter light zones where sufficient daylight is available to meet required lux levels.

Movement Sensor

Movement sensors are to be incorporated to provide energy efficient controls to switch off area lighting when zones are no longer occupied.

Manual Override

ON / OFF / Auto controls to all automatically controlled lighting including Time Clocks, Time Controls, Photo Cell Sensors and Movement Sensors.

BMS Control

Refer to Component Specification BMS section

Illumination Other

IP Rated Fittings

Provide IP rated fittings. Rating of fitting to be considerate of environmental conditions and application.

Suspended Fittings

Designer to consider suspended fittings as an architectural feature, to avoid ceiling obstructions, or to lower the lighting plane in spaces with high ceilings.

Adverse Condition Fittings

Adverse condition fittings include hazardous environment fittings to avert ignition source in potentially combustible environments

Colour Temperature Requirements

Colour temperature is generally cool white (4100K).

Designer to refer to Electrical Design Standard and consult with MUP personnel for additional requirements.
