LED savings in industry – 2.2 billion euros possible each year
Refurbishing obsolete lighting installations certainly pays: thanks to the high energy efficiency of LED solutions, EU-wide savings of around 2.2 billion euros per year can be achieved according to a survey by McKinsey management consultants.
LED and TCO – continuing downhill
According to a survey by Boston Consulting Group, the total cost of ownership (TCO) for linear LED systems will decrease by more than half up to 2020 as compared to 2014.
LED and light management – an unbeatable team
Energy consumption for lighting can be reduced by up to 80% by upgrading from conventional lighting systems to LED in combination with a sensor-controlled light management system. Light management systems also offer extensive control and analysis functions.
Light management systems – 20 % growth up to 2020
A survey carried out by McKinsey management consultancy underlines the growing importance of light management systems: according to the study the market for light management systems will expand annually by around 20% until 2020.
Transparent operating parameters – cost savings through predictive maintenance
Networked, intelligent lighting systems for industrial halls can continuously monitor the operating parameters – and thus identify maintenance needs in advance, for example based on operating duration or changes in energy consumption. Predictive maintenance helps avoid unforeseen production downtimes and carry out maintenance and service work in accordance with needs, which is significantly cheaper than fixed maintenance intervals.
The use of a lighting system with daylight sensors enables energy consumption, seen mathematically, to be cut by up to 50%. The following applies: the better the available daylight is utilised the greater the savings in electricity consumption are. Regular window cleaning is therefore a must. The reason: very dirty windows – such as skylights in production halls – can absorb up to 50% of the light.
This is how quickly it can be done – LED refurbishment in just 44 seconds
High savings in energy costs can be achieved by refurbishing conventional continuous lines. TRILUX E-Line has been one of the best-selling continuous lines in Germany and Europe for more than 25 years. And especially practical: conventional E-Line continuous lines with T5/T8 lamps can be converted to LED technology in just 44 seconds per module.
Better for the biorhythm – night shifts do better without blue light
Numerous scientific surveys prove that our biological rhythm can be disrupted by light exposure to high blue spectral components during the night. HCL light management systems offer a solution: these can change the spectral composition of light in the night hours so that the effect on the biological rhythm is minimised, and in compliance with the illuminance levels required by law.
Inside is the new outside – thanks to circadian light
By working under constant artificial light, the body lacks important impulses via which natural sunlight, with its dynamic sequence, controls and stabilises the biorhythm. This often leads to sleep disorders which can then lead to other illnesses such as depression. The alternative: circadian lighting systems "fetch daylight into the building" by orienting the light colour and intensity to natural sunlight – and adapting accordingly during the course of the day. In this way the body receives important impulses that support the biological rhythm and can improve well-being.
