Digital Lumens Wireless Sensor Network Enables Advanced Lighting and Instruments for the IIoT
Based in Calgary, Alberta, Sunwest Aviation provides its customers with a full range of business aviation services which include charter, aircraft management, cargo, fractional ownership, aircraft sales, and acquisitions and consulting services. When the 1000-watt metal halide fixtures in two of the four Sunwest aircraft hangars started to wear out and became so noisy they gave some employees headaches and forced others to wear earplugs, Ground Operations Manager, Tim Piper sought a better solution. Because the Provincial Government incentivizes businesses with rebates to outfit their facilities with sustainable lighting solutions, Tim knew efficiency would be a top criterion. In order to increase workplace comfort and ultimately productivity, Sunwest needed LED fixtures and lighting controls that made minimal noise.
