Lighting Equipment Monitoring Solutions Tailored for High-rise Buildings

The primary goal for this scenario was to control the lighting equipment and switches in the public spaces of a building. The function of uPAC-7186EG here is a programmable controller and it can handle and transmit the data that acquired from the sensors based on settings.
Moreover, ICP DAS high-speed FRnet I/O modules enable to transmit the data from the lighting equipment, and have features that make them easy to setup and provide a quick response. Users were able to perform the system operation by using the TPD-280U-H, a device that includes a touch display, together with InduSoft, SCADA software, so the central monitoring computer to take control of the lighting equipment in a unified way.


Our client is a well-known construction company that has achieved many successes when building apartments and office complexes. In addition, their requirements for building automation in terms of function design and product selection are extremely strict. The three expectations they insisted on for the product function were clear function design, ease of use and durability. Consequently, ICP DAS was able to help them achieve their goals for building automation by employing the PACs, together with the TouchPAD and other remote I/O modules, each of them operating the lighting control. Ultimately, the company was able to create a suitable central control management via a SCADA system.

● Lighting Controls

ICP DAS designed a solution for our client by using the uPAC-7186EG, TPD-280U-H, FR-2053T and FT-2057T devices. First, a number of uPAC7186EG PACs, which responsible for the programming, were used to function as controllers, and could also be implemented to execute the ISaGRAF. Second, the serial port on the uPAC-7186EG was connected to the FR-2053T, which is a high-speed digital input module, and they were used as touch switch controls. Third, the ICP DAS FR-2057Ts, which are high-speed digital output modules, were used for the lighting control. Finally, our TPD-280U-H, HMI devices were installed in the public spaces as multi-function switches.

● Accelerating Transmission Efficiency

Given that the data transmission needed to be enhanced, the uPAC-7186EG modules were installed on every five floors, with a total of six uPAC-7186EG modules being employed as controllers for the entire building.

● System Integration

With the combination of a PC that has the InduSoft SCADA software platform installed, the six uPAC-7186EGs received and transmitted the signals back to the control room. All the monitoring indicators that displayed the status of the lighting in this building were also integrated.
