Delmatic Provides Integrated Network Lighting Management at Pudding Mill Lane

Docklands Light RailwayDelmatic has supplied an integrated network lighting management system for the new Docklands Light Railway (DLR) Pudding Mill Lane station.

Pudding Mill Lane, now the largest station on the DLR network, increases capacity on the network by 20% and provides enhanced access for people travelling to new entertainment venues in the area and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.  The dramatic design creates a new benchmark for future DLR stations, raising the bar and meeting the expectations of today’s passengers.

The Delmatic system provides networked management and monitoring of lighting throughout the platforms, concourse and back of house areas.  Energy efficiency is achieved through networked Dali sensors providing presence and absence detection throughout back-of-house areas, platforms and concourses as well as through photocell control in daylight areas. The system incorporates robust and fail-safe technologies and interfaces with a SCADA critical alarm monitoring system to ensure that if either power or communication is lost to the lighting control modules or routers, an alert is sent via the SCADA system, to a remote network monitoring centre.

The Pudding Mill Lane DLR station project forms part of the post Olympics legacy and was undertaken with Crossrail, which needed to move the location of the previous station to make room for a tunnel portal for one of the new Crossrail lines.  

Delmatic are supplying Dali lighting management systems for the seven new central London Crossrail stations at Paddington, Bond Street, Tottenham Court Road, Farringdon, Liverpool Street, Whitechapel, and Custom House, and the Pudding Mill Lane project extended from Delmatic’s involvement with Crossrail.
