Rotech Projects
Commercial Automation at Mandara Spa

This project combined two of our departments together to install LED lighting which is controlled by a Control4 controller. For the renovation of Mandara Spa situated in Marriott Rotech Elektrotechniek used two innovation technologies. They wanted an installation of LED lighting but it had to be controlled using a Control4 controller for light commercial automation. This controller is used to control the light settings of all the LED lights installed at Mandara Spa and also to control the audio for this spa.

For this project we used a variety of LED lights such as RGB strips in the cove of the main entrance, LED spots in the ceiling, LED spots on a track and also some special LED fixtures for underneath shelves which Mandara Spa uses to promote their product line. To control all these lighting fixtures we installed a Control4 HC-800 controller which has enough capacity to ensure a smooth operation of the LED lighting. To control these lights with the use of a Control4 controller we had to use a Ethernet to DMX ODE.

This module converts the Ethernet signal given off from the Control4 controller to a DMX signal which is used to power LED lighting. After testing this ODE to verify it would work with Control4 we installed it locally and hooked up all the lighting fixtures in daisy-chain to it. After setting each lighting fixture driver to a preset DMX channel all the lights were controllable by the Control4 controller. For Mandara Spa we installed 2 separate 6 button keypads from Control4 to give the client the ability to change the light levels within the spa. Our client also wanted to integrate their audio into this system so we reserved 2 buttons per keypad for audio volume control throughout the spa.

The rooms where this system was installed were partitioned in three zones for audio and lighting control. For audio control we had to install a 4 channel amplifier of Control4. The amplifier has 4 zones which it can control the volume levels per room.

To make it even easier for our client to change their audio and lighting levels we have integrated the use of a IPad into the Control4 system so our client can change the color of the RGB strip which we had installed in the cove of the main entrance, the light levels and change the audio levels per room. This all was possible due to the installation of a wireless access point and a compatible gigabit switch. For this project we combined various skills of ours to make this project a success.
