Villingen-Schwenningen, October 2016: With PULSE NET, Waldmann has developed an external controller for using biodynamic light in room luminaires, which is characterised by an extremely easy installation.


Plug & Light: External controller PULSE NET for simple commissioning

Thanks to the external controller PULSE NET, the natural light effect of the Waldmann light management system PULSE VTL can also be easily combined with room luminaries such as the new IDOO family by Waldman for a biodynamic lighting. To this end, multiple luminaires are connected to PULSE NET via DALI. The change in light during the day is stored on an SD card, allowing the luminaires to simulate natural light according to the particular time of day. The controller is mounted in the building and provides information on light level and light colour to several luminaires in real time. The biological mode of action is obtained primarily with homogenous light impression of the linked luminaires. The adjustment of light colour and brightness is generated in the direct and indirect light component.

Based on the principle of Plug & Light, the system is very easy to put into operation via a five-wire cable. No read-in of individual luminaires or storing of time schedules or groups are required. Nor do the luminaires have to be integrated into a building automation system. This makes the controller suitable for smaller installations.


Light management system PULSE VTL for biodynamic lighting

Equipped with PULSE VTL, Waldmann luminaires bring the dynamic nature of daylight inside the building, sustainably enhancing well-being and productivity. The same cycle happens each day in the human body. The internal clock determines sleeping and waking phases, but also heart frequency, blood pressure and mood – a rhythm of biological processes mainly controlled and supported by light. The hormones cortisol and melatonin are primarily at play here. Luminaires equipped with PULSE VTL provide motivating light throughout the day: beginning with 6500 Kelvin in the morning, similar to daylight, to activate the senses, to a warm white 3000 Kelvin as evening approaches to create a more relaxed working atmosphere. The biodynamic light thus promotes lasting well-being especially in offices that get little daylight and in winter months when the inner body clock is only weakly synchronized with daylight.
