Unihalle Wuppertal is a venue for various sports and cultural events. Before it could hold a Handball Bundesliga (top German professional handball league) game, it had to be technically optimised. In addition to new nets and camera platforms, an LED lighting system with controls was therefore installed. The aim was not only to save energy but also to improve the light quality. The developers opted to use Norka products, with 130 Centaurus spotlights fitted with LED arrays together with luminaires named Dublin and London fitted with LED strips used for the hall and playing field lighting. As a result, the playing-field illuminance was able to be increased from approximately 950 lx at a height of 1.5 m above the playing field to the stipulated 1,700 lx and higher. The luminaires are also glare-free, with the light on the playing field now distributed more evenly than before, according to the manufacturer. Lighting scenes have been pre-programmed and saved for the typical spatial and usage formats using the DALI- light management system Xara Professional. The control points are three touch panels.
