Light for Industry - Different application areas require different and project-specific solutions. The most important requirements for lighting solutions must be checked.
Especially for the industrial sector, lighting is becoming increasingly important. Lighting solutions should reduce costs, improve visual comfort, increase productivity, provide safety and contribute to the protection of the environment. The dizzying development of LED lighting systems makes it difficult to plan and plan lighting solutions; however it offers many advantages to the user as the light can be controlled and flexible with more intelligent systems every day. In this scope, the most important lighting requirements according to application areas should be evaluated correctly and current standards should be always checked.
Standards and regulations
A wide range of standards and regulations must be considered when designing and installing lighting systems. The most important ones: DIN EN 12464 specifies standard-compliant planning and installation. Legislators also specify minimum energy requirements for lighting in buildings as part of DIN EN 15193. Directives for work safety and rules determined by professional associations must also be taken into account. The EC directive for the HQL ban has also been in force since mid-2015, finally banning inefficient mercury vapour lamps from the market.
ENEC+ the new performance certificate
Until now, the economic performance of LED solutions could only be calculated using the specifications of the manufacturer. IEC performance standards for LED modules and LED-based luminaires were determined to achieve greater transparency and comparability be- tween market participants – leading to the development of a pan European system of certification. ENEC+ is a performance indicator which objectively confirms the correctness of manufacturer specifications. TRILUX already develops its luminaires based on these new technology standards.
TRILUX lighting systems feature high levels of energy efficiency and low operating overheads. Upgrading conventional T8 lighting installations to TRILUX LED solutions featuring light management systems enables operating costs to be cut by up to 85 %. This means that such new systems pay back investment costs within very short time periods.
LED lighting is a plus both economically and ecologically. Its energy efficiency makes an important contribution in reducing the emission of damaging global warming gases and companies can also credibly provide evidence of their sustainability policy.
Quality of light – higher productivity, improved safety and fewer mistakes
Current surveys show that customised lighting solutions improve productivity and reduce the rate of accidents compared to conventional, obsolete lighting installations.
Light is becoming increasingly intelligent and flexible. High- performance light management systems reduce operating costs by fully exploiting existing day- light and switching on luminaires only when needed via occupancy detection. Lighting solutions can also be simply integrated into networks and flexibly and conveniently controlled via computers or mobile end devices.
