Commissioning

  • Identifies the end-user's requirements
  • Fine tunes the luminaire settings
  • Minimises energy consumption
  • Increases savings for the end user

Pre-Commissioning Check Lists

To book commissioning for the Thorlux system at your site please download the relevant pdf below.
You will then be able to submit the check list via email once complete.

Thorlux Lighting designs, manufactures and supplies the most energy efficient lighting systems on the market. Most Thorlux products can be used straight from the box with their default settings. However, to operate most effectively products need to be configured to the conditions on site. Thorlux has a team of skilled commissioning engineers who can visit your site and configure your lighting installation upon request.

Benefits of commissioning

Using an example project the energy reductions below show what can be achieved when luminaires are commissioned:

User Training

During or after handover of the lighting systems to the client, Thorlux can train facility personnel on the proper operation and maintenance of the lighting and the control system. Trained staff who fully understand the controls are less likely to attempt to override or bypass the system.

Benefits of Commissioning - The Details

Energy and operating costs are reduced as a result of fine-tuning. The cost benefits of commissioning continue for many years, whereas implementing the commissioning process is a one-time cost.

After commissioning to fine-tune the light levels in the example below, the savings increased to 73%. This equated to a saving of £20,000 per annum.
