September 17, 2019 at 8:21 pm 0

Since 2017, BJB has been participating in an exciting project that aims to 'revolutionize the European lighting industry by 2020'. The Repro-Light project, in conjunction with the European Commission's Horizon 2020 work programme, is creating the 'Luminaire of the Future', directly focused on re-usable and re-configurable parts for sustainable LED based lighting systems.

As noted in the projects original press release, 'this project will harness innovative technologies and materials to implement a never attempted before modular luminaire architecture, a smart production scheme and also the development of a reconfigurable customized LED luminaires, which will create the 'Luminaire of the Future.'

Bringing together leading experts within the industry, BJB is just one of the premiere members of the consortium working on this innovative project. The combined power of Trilux, Rhner Engineering, Mondragon, Luger Research, IREC, Grado Zero, Bartenbach, and BJB will provide not just influence but actionable results in moving the Repro-light project forward.

The initial phase of the project focused on analyzing the customers needs and technical requirements. Understanding the perception of how workers perceive lighting in the workspace was an important first factor in assessing next steps. A survey, conducted by Repro-Light in early 2019 revealed that 'current lighting in the workplace is not satisfying end-users and their needs'.

The results of the overall first survey proved that change is required in the working environments, both in industrial spaces and in offices, and that the overall community is ready for major changes in lighting transformation.

The latest focus of Repro-Light has been to assess the 'Life Cycle and Sustainable Development of Lighting' As part of the project, the IREC, an energy research institute in based in Spain, has been looking to focus their research into the design of luminaries to contribute to sustainable development.

Additionally, BJB is bringing our historic knowledge about mechanical, electrical and thermal interfaces including the flexible automated production for new LED lighting systems. Within this project, the concept for a socket-connector system is developed in respect of special requirements for interchangeable intelligent light modules, giving BJB the opportunity to use these synergies in Reprolight.

BJB has developed and implemented more than 160 automated production lines for worldwide customers in the lighting and domestic appliance industry. We are also and active member in the national and international stadardization committees like IEC and Zhaga. The experience of our innovations and iconic experience will stand out within the Repro-light project.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 768780.
