Helvar has teamed up with lighting track pioneer Unipro to build DALI track sensors for lighting track installations.

The new product enables customers to order Helvar 32X series DALI system sensors as ready-to-install DALI Tracksensor products. The lighting tracks allow for an easy, flexible, and safe installation of the device in the desired position on the track. The possibility to install DALI sensors in addition to the luminaires makes lighting design and installation easy. The launched Tracksensors allow lighting designers to place system sensors on the DALI lighting tracks instead of placing them separately to the ceiling, which means fewer design drawings and the future-proof possibility to easily add more sensors or re-position the existing ones.

Tracksensor products can be used with both Helvar Imagine and ActiveAhead lighting control solutions and work just like 32X sensors when ceiling mounted. DALI lighting tracks can be used to create ready-to-install packages using products such as ActiveAhead Node Advanced. Track sensors combined with DALI addressing allow individual light level adjustment and control of the luminaires mounted on the track. The solution with ActiveAhead Node Advanced works out-of-the-box and can be fine-tuned where and when needed using a mobile app.

Helvar's recent Node Advanced upgrade has brought new scalability to its award-winning intelligent wireless lighting control solution ActiveAheadTM and has resulted in the ability to connect and control individual DALI luminaires and selected DALI devices such as sensors and relays.
