Parking & Transport
Al Maktoum International Airport

In future, Al Maktoum Airport will be the world's largest airport. The first passenger terminal went into service back in October 2013. Cutting-edge KNX presence detectors from STEINEL provide automatic and efficient lighting at the airport. Using the standardised KNX BUS system, building automation was to control the main functions on a centralised basis and in the most energy-efficient manner possible. Using intelligent presence detectors to automate lighting can provide energy savings of up to 80 per cent. This saves a lot of time and money, a benefit that's very much appreciated in Dubai. The precision KNX detectors have the job of controlling the lighting system connected to them in the passenger terminal. In corridors and passageways this is done by the dedicated Dual HF KNX corridor sensor. The IR Quattro HD KNX was chosen for controlling the lighting in offices and the kitchen area.

"The Dual HF KNX corridor sensor's huge range convinced everyone involved. Corridors of up to 20 metres in length can be covered with just a single sensor. This meant it was possible to keep the number of sensors low and cost effective yet still provide complete and exact coverage."

Michael Enning, Former General Manager of STEINEL

Modern building automation

Using intelligent presence detectors to automate lighting can provide energy savings of up to 80 per cent. To achieve this, the precision KNX sensors from STEINEL were chosen for the new airport. The KNX detectors have the job of controlling the lighting system connected to them in the passenger terminal. In corridors and passageways this is done by the dedicated Dual HF KNX corridor sensor. The IR Quattro HD KNX was chosen for controlling the lighting in offices and the kitchen area.

Coverage in two directions

The Dual HF KNX was developed specifically for detecting movement in corridors. This is why its detection field is geared to the particular architecture of corridors and passageways. As the only one of its kind, it is equipped with two HF-sensors. Each watches over one corridor direction. With just one Dual HF this makes it possible to cover a total length of 20 metres.

Detecting the slightest movement

The IR Quattro HD KNX was absolutely predestined for detecting predominantly sedentary activities of the type taking place, for example, in the air terminal's offices. Thanks to its very high resolution, it reliably detects even the slightest of movements, such as typing on a computer keyboard.

KNX control

KNX detectors from STEINEL are particularly easy to install and configure. All settings can be configured and changed by ETS software or directly via panel or smart phone. As a result, minor changes can easily be made by the in-house technician – saving time and money, an advantage that's very much appreciated in Dubai.
