Sky Tower, Wroclaw

Completed at the end of 2012, the Sky Tower complex in Wroclaw/Poland is currently Poland's tallest building. It has over 1000 special corridor sensors from STEINEL that ensure on-demand, energy-efficient lighting control. Apart from a shopping centre, the Sky Tower also accommodates offices and 236 apartments distributed over 50 floors. The building's users and residents reach their premises through a large number of corridors and passageways. Sensors from STEINEL were to minimise the lighting's energy consumption. As corridors and passageways come with an architecture all of their own – they are usually narrow and long – dedicated corridor sensors from STEINEL were to be used in the Sky Tower. The detection field of these corridor sensors is tailored perfectly to this specific spatial situation. Given the scenario inside the building, it was decided to use the Dual HF presence detector from the Presence Control PRO range as well as the IS 345 passive infrared motion detector to keep watch over the high corridors and passageways.

"The sensors from STEINEL really are excellent. Their sensor technology and truly above-average reach left us in no doubt. This way, our customers not only save energy but also investment and maintenance costs."

Sensors for corridors

As corridors and passageways come with an architecture all of their own – they are usually narrow and long – dedicated corridor sensors from STEINEL were to be used in the Sky Tower. Their detection field is tailored perfectly to this specific spatial situation. Given the scenario inside the building, it was decided to use the Dual HF presence detector from the Presence Control PRO range as well as the IS 345 passive
infrared motion detectors.

Broad vision from the ceiling

As a dedicated corridor sensor, the Dual HF is fitted with two high-frequency sensors. With a reach of up to 10 metres, these two sensors sit back to back to cover both corridor directions.
In total, this means a single Dual HF sensor can survey up to 20 metres of corridor. The sensor's reach setting can be infinitely adjusted all electronically.

Active detection

The Dual HF uses high-frequency technology invented by STEINEL for sensing room use. As an active
system, the sensor emits HF waves and receives the echo reflected by walls and objects. A person in the detection zone alters the echo, with the Dual HF responding with a switching signal. The HF-sensor's particular responsiveness switches light on without any delay whatsoever.

Detection from a great height

The IS 345 motion detector is predestined for watching over high corridors and passageways. As a passive infrared sensor it has a motion detection zone of 20 × 4 metres across the sensor. The sensor can be precision-adjusted using shrouds and by repositioning the lens.
