How to choose the right modern industrial lighting for your company?

Light is becoming increasingly important in the industrial sector.

The reasons: modern industrial lighting is able to cut operating costs due to state-of-the-art, energy-efficient lighting technology, improve visual conditions and help concentration with Human Centric Lighting and simultaneously improve productivity and operating safety, as well as protecting the environment by integration into control networks. Another aspect to consider is that legislative regulations are becoming increasingly stringent.

In the face of this, many industrial companies search for a qualified partner to exploit the potential of modern lighting systems rapidly, reliably and as simply as possible. Companies expecting more from their industrial LED luminaires than simple compliance with current standards see TUBU as a specialist for the complete spectrum of requirements – ranging from production bays and warehouses to corridors and office workstations in management environments.

Manufacturing

In production areas, light must first and foremost enable safe and error-free work. For the lighting solution, this means that a sufficient brightness level with high uniformity and as few reflections and shadows as possible is a basic requirement. The more intricate the task, the more and better the light required. In addition to general lighting, special precision work requires workplace-related luminaires in order to be able to carry out the respective work step smoothly.

At the same time, the luminaires themselves must be equipped for particularly demanding environments with heat, cold, dust or moisture. Appropriate protection classes and materials ensure adequate, long-lasting use in industrial applications. Particularly strict regulations apply in the food industry with high hygiene and quality standards. TUBU offers industrial lighting meets the standard of International Featured Standards (IFS), with particularly good color rendering and protection against breakage and chipping, for example.

Lighting concepts that focus on people go one step further than purely normative specifications. Dynamic, biologically effective light ensures greater well-being for employees by using light colors to support concentration and regeneration.

Warehouse & logistics

In warehouses, every space must be used well. This leads to narrow aisles with sometimes very high shelves on both sides. There is no question that high-bay warehouses are practical and economical, but difficult to illuminate. For this purpose, TUBU has developed luminaires with coordinated light distributions that distribute their light evenly all the way down and ensure that goods are easily identifiable with sufficiently high vertical illuminance levels.

In view of the fact that storage areas are usually only used for short periods of time, the integration of sensors is also an option. Intelligent solutions from TUBU detect when employees are in the aisles and automatically regulate the lighting. This saves cash.

In logistics zones with forklift traffic, man meets machine and interior meets exterior. The lighting design must take into account possible daylight as well as sufficient visibility to ensure safety at work for forklift drivers and employees.

With flexible solutions from TUBU, which combine basic lighting with point-directed solutions and switch artificial light sensor-based depending on the available daylight, individual, efficient solutions are created.

How much do you know about WINE AND CHAMPAGNE CELLARS Lighting Solution?

Cellars demand lighting solutions that take care of wine and champagne natural properties.

 

 

The challenges

 

Photo-sensitivity

Wine and champagne are negatively affected by natural light and fluorescent or halogen lamps, due to UV rays and heat. This is why cellars and bottles are usually dark.

 

Riboflavin

During alcoholic fermentation, yeasts produce riboflavin. Part of the energy emitted by the light source is absorbed by riboflavin, which triggers chemical reactions. How does light affect wine and champagne through riboflavin?

 

How does light affect wine and champagne through riboflavin?

 

Color

It causes progressive discoloration, so wine and champagne may become colorless.
OLFACTORY AND VISUAL PROPERTIES Sensory characteristics can be modified, and flavors that reduce aromatic or fruity characters appear.
 

Aging

It causes new compounds that contribute to light-struck taste and atypical aging, with an accumulative effect.

 

UV radiation

LED technology does not emit UV rays, but their blue wavelengths are harmful because the riboflavin spectrum has an absorption peak at 440 nm (between violet and blue), which can increase negative effects.

The absence of UV radiation and blue wavelength benefits the storage of wines.

 

Cool areas

Temperatures are higher than 21ºC cause premature aging and flat aromas and flavors.

LED light sources do not generate significant heat, so they contribute to a cool ambient while improving their lifetime.

Humidity and dust Wines are stored at cellars with 50-80% humidity during long times, so bottles accumulate dust.

Sealed luminaires protected against the income of solid and liquid elements last long and ensure light quality.

 

Safety

In working areas, it is needed to combine the protection of the wines with worker’s safety and comfort. The light must guarantee maximum visual comfort, flicker-free, and low glare, to avoid visual fatigue and allow the identification of a clear risk.

 

“Wine in a white bottle exposed to direct fluorescence light can suffer deviations of its sensory profile between 1 and 3 hours”

 

The Solution

  • The right light level and color protect wine and champagne against riboflavin effects from photosensitivity.
  • Robust and long-lasting luminaires are appropriate to humid and dirty environments.
  • LED technology contributes to keeping a cool ambient temperature in cellars.
  • Luminaires with easy mounting reduce installation and maintenance costs.

What is UGR19 Anti-glare LED Light?

UGR19 stands for Unified Glare Rating of 19 or less, which is a parameter of how bright a luminaire is in a sample room layout, and is particularly important in office spaces where workers have to spend many hours a day and would be using display terminals for a large proportion of that time.

The higher the UGR number the higher the glare from the luminaire and the increased discomfort for office workers. The glare can cause health and safety issues and welfare problems such as headaches, migraines, and eyesight issues. The light fitting alone cannot be UGR19 compliant as it is not a characteristic of a luminaire but is a measure of how it performs in a physical space.

The UGR rating helps to determine how likely a luminaire is to cause discomfort to those around it. For example, the discomfort that a LED Panel will cause the workforce within an office. This classification ranges from 5 to 40, with low numbers indicating low glare.

Glare is a common problem in workplaces. Inappropriate luminaires cause excessive brightness to be ‘bounced off’ reflective surfaces, such as computer screens, whiteboards, etc. This can cause disruption for the occupants of offices, in terms of headaches & eye trouble, which can then lead to employee absences.

Calculating UGR

UGR is calculated by using an equation that takes into account a number of factors that may contribute to glare caused by a luminaire, such as the angle of the luminaire, the likelihood of glare and the luminance value (lumen output). The equation that is used to calculate the UGR is:

L= The luminance value of the luminaire

Lb= The value of the background luminance

ω= The solid angle of the luminaire that is seen by the viewer

p= The Guth Index. Based on the likelihood of glare, also known as Visual Comfort Probability

Σ= Shows that the equation (shown above) includes all the fittings located within the area.

Methods for reducing glare:

There are two methods to reduce the glare that is present in relation to interior lighting: firstly, to use luminaires that are UGR<19 rated; secondly to ensure that the lighting design is appropriate for the environment they are being used in i.e. the correct number and position of luminaires.

Within an office setting, for the luminaire to be classified as “low glare” it must have a UGR below 19 at desk level. Anything above this may cause discomfort – this further enforces the need for high-quality interior lighting that is rated UGR<19.

There are a number of different UGR limits that should not be exceeded in certain environments, these include:
