The lighting wiring has been started today for the ten fluorescent T5 tubes, controlled by five electronic dimmable ballast. There will be a momentary switch control to operate the dimming feature, done by supplying a mains voltage to the control port. A quick press of the switch will turn it on and off and holding it down will start ramping up or down the brightness level. The brightness level is remembered upon switching back on next time as long there hasn’t been a power cut! Another advantage of this method of controlling the lights, is that we can have several momentary switches besides the door entrances and any one will do the job! this might include a PIR sensor in the room which will trigger the light on!

Cannot wait to see how well the lights will shine from the Light Channel!
