What benefits do you get from SmartScan?

System Flexibility

Flexibility

SmartScan utilises a wireless mesh network. Each device acts as a repeater, ensuring that data signals always find a suitable communication path. Groups are easily created and changed providing future flexibility without altering wiring.

more less

Excellent Wireless Reliability

Frequency

An operational frequency of 868MHz (922MHz in Australasia) provides excellent transmission distances and better penetration of signals.

more less

Efficient Communication

Communication

Intelligent algorithm with low transmission of data – transmits less than 1% of total time (99% of time wireless is off) - reduces wireless traffic increasing reliability.

more less

Intelligent Connectivity

Connectivity

Software uses simple wait before transmit logic to ensure error free transmissions.

more less

Reduced Installation Costs

simple installation

The SmartScan Gateway and compatible Smart, Smart External and emergency luminaires simply require a mains connection. All communication cables are replaced by the mesh network so there is no need for data cables, additional power supplies, control modules.

more less

Simple and Fast Commissioning

Fast commissioning

Using a single robust hand held infra-red programmer all luminaire types can be very quickly and easily commissioned, and all operational settings can be fine tuned in the future if desired.

Made in the UK

Made in the UK

Customer assurance that the system and luminaires are fully compatible - designed and manufactured by Thorlux in the UK. SmartScan builds on the ultra reliable first wireless generation of Smart - SmartTR.

Powerful Information Collection

Gateway

The SmartScan Gateway uses the mesh network to communicate with individual luminaires, sending out instructions such as emergency lighting automatic testing times. It also reads energy performance data and the emergency lighting status from SmartScan luminaires and transmits it to the World Wide Web for viewing using tablets, smart-phones, laptops and computers.

Platform 2 only

more less

SmartScan is available in two platforms;

Platform 1

Platform 1 Icon

Luminaires operate on a stand-alone basis;

Smart luminaires link wirelessly in groups for presence detection and scene setting. Energy performance data can be retrieved using the SmartScan Programmer.
Emergency luminaires are self-test with the addition that operational status information can be retrieved using the SmartScan Programmer.

Platform 2

Platform 2 Icon

The same luminaires are also very simply wirelessly linked into a Gateway which collects and transmits their energy performance data and emergency lighting operational status information to the World Wide Web for viewing using tablets, smart-phones, laptops and computers.

How does it work?

Smart

Smart sensor

Projects utilising the Thorlux Smart System can frequently benefit from energy savings in excess of 70% when compared with conventional technology .

more

The factory fitted addition of a SmartScan transceiver, to a Thorlux Smart luminaire, introduces the latest wireless mesh network technology and replaces the wired Motionline communication signals between luminaires with sophisticated, trouble free wireless transmissions.

Each transceiver can be individually programmed with a SmartScan Programmer, during commissioning, and assigned to work exclusively within a particular building, or group created within that building. Energy performance data can be retrieved using the SmartScan Programmer.

SmartScan uses 868MHz (922MHz in Australasia) secure radio communication chosen for its excellent transmission distance and object penetration, especially useful within buildings. Each luminaire acts as a wireless node, repeating each command received onto the next luminaire, providing a robust system that will always find a communication path.

Emergency

Lexi-65 and Programmer

At Platform 1 all SmartScan emergency luminaires are stand-alone.
Each luminaire will self-test to the schedule specified in BS EN 50172:2004.

more

The operational status of each luminaire is displayed by the status LED and operational status information can be retrieved using the SmartScan Programmer. Manual tests can also be initiated at each luminaire using the SmartScan Programmer. The user, legally, will need to inspect each luminaire at prescribed intervals to monitor test status and manually log the results.

less

Addressing - Each SmartScan transceiver can be assigned an address to suit its application.
The following parameters are programmable:

Building Address

Building Address

Identifies devices that are within the same system and forms the boundary for the wireless mesh network to prevent adjacent buildings communicating.

Group Address

Group Address

All luminaires with the same building address and the same group address will work together for presence detection and scene control. Up to 254 different zones can be created in one building.

Device Address

Device Address

To provide unique identification, individual luminaires within each group can be given an address.

Platform 2
How does it work?

1

Compatible Smart, Smart External and emergency luminaires wirelessly communicate with each other and the Gateway through the mesh network.

2

The Gateway transmits Smart energy performance and emergency lighting status reports to the SmartScan web server.

3

Users employ their chosen device to access the energy performance and status reports.
