An overview of the main innovations in the latest release of ReluxDesktop
Redesigned emergency lighting planning – all in a single location
We have comprehensively redesigned the existing emergency lighting functions in ReluxDesktop and added new practical features. All the emergency lighting settings can now be selected and edited directly in the navigation bar. This enables you to work more efficiently through integral planning of the emergency lighting situation.
Auto placement / Live results tool
Emergency lights can now be placed automatically in “anti-panic” areas and along emergency escape routes. ReluxDesktop calculates the correct quantity and positioning of the luminaires and puts them in place with a click of the mouse. The default illumination level corresponds to EN 1838 and can be changed to any other illumination level. You thus benefit from huge time savings when calculating emergency lighting!
Activating the "LiveResults" element shows you in real time the results for emergency-enabled luminaires in a selected emergency lighting area. This tool enables rapid and direct planning. This is especially the case when luminaires for normal lighting are also used for emergency lighting. In the “View” menu option, you can switch to a full false colour view and obtain more detailed results in real time.
Visibility range tool – Easy compliance with standards
Using the visibility range tool, you can easily evaluate the number and position of all emergency luminaires on the basis of EN 1838. When the visibility range tool is activated, the visibility range can be seen directly when modifying the values or moving the luminaire.
Further innovations and improvements
Improved printout with false colours
Emergency light standards with local or your own target values
Emergency light pictograms easier to access
Major OpenGL update for more performance and stability
ReluxDesktop now imports any ceiling shapes from Revit.
Tip: Use ReluxCAD for Revit as a powerful ceiling modeller.
