Scenariio Intelligent Infrastructures (Scenariio) specialise in the design, implementation and support of intelligent infrastructure solutions deployed over traditional structured network cabling. With a client base across the UK and spreading internationally, Scenariio develop and install complex data network solutions to a range of industries.
Carrying out ongoing research of their marketplace, Scenariio found that companies want to move away from conventional and expensive power supply to lighting in favour of a safe, more cost effective and highly efficient alternative source of energy using data cabling.
In response to client demands, Scenariio have developed low voltage LED lighting over a data structured cabling system, creating energy savings of up to 80% against traditional lighting. The dense sensor network will also gather key building information on occupancy, temperature, power consumption and light levels. Research and development was utilised to ensure that Scenariio’s products comply with the Energy Technology List (ETL) criteria, a Government scheme that sets the performance criteria of highly energy efficient products.
