Time-saving lighting design

Lighting calculations and recalculations are time-consuming operations. Glamox Plug-in PRO for AVEVA PDMS™ utilizes available 3D models and makes lighting design much quicker – and more accurate.
Once the Glamox plug-in is installed, users can carry out complete lighting calculations in the PDMS user interface. The actual calculations are made by a database which is included with the plug-in.

The speed and accuracy of the calculation program is impressive. Once the calculations have been made, PDMS can visualize the lighting design, showing average lux levels and uniformity.

This is a significant time- and cost saving tool for lighting design, reducing the need for corrective work during the construction phase. It also generates valuable “as built” documentation.

Glamox Plug-in LITE for AVEVA PDMS™

Generating 3D files for lighting calculation programs from PDMS™ can be a time-consuming process. Glamox Plug-in LITE for AVEVA PDMS™ makes this process much quicker.

Once the Glamox plug-in is installed, PDMS users can use this to generate the 3D files needed to carry out lighting calculations. The files are created in .dgn format for the Glamox Optiwin 3D Pro lighting calculation program, and will only contain the 3D model required for lighting calculations. Please note that ExPLANT-I must be installed.

The Plug-in does not modify any data in PDMS. The plug-in only searches, reads, presents and exports PDMS geometry and attributes. All setup and result data are saved outside PDMS.

Major benefits:

  • Generates files suitable for lighting calculations
  • Major time savings generating 3D model files (.dgn)
  • Fully integrated with PDMS Design
  • It is quick to generate a new file if you make changes in the design
  • Increased accuracy means lower installation costs 
  • High quality "as built" documentation
  • It's free!
