BJB to Feature Advances in LED Board Exchangeability at Lightfair International 2019 in Philadelphia
May 6, 2019 at 2:46 pm 0

There aren't many companies that have been around for 150 years. According to Business News Daily, there are only 21 American companies that were all started more than 150 years ago and are still thriving today. Companies such as JP Morgan Chase (1799), Jim Beam (1795), and DuPont (1802) are a few of the more recognizable brands.

And, when it comes to lighting technology, there's another company that's historic impact on an industry has thrived the test of time. That company is none other than BJB, founded in 1867 in Germany. They will be headlining this years Lightfair International, in the historic city of Philadelphia. This event is the global epicenter of light, technology, knowledge, and innovation.

Joe Laufer, President of BJB's USA Operations is excited to feature advances in automation and board exchangeability, and they are highlighting a recent partnership with Signify (formerly Philips Lighting). Joe Laufer states:

Our solution, in partnership with Signify is to offer a system that allows for quick and easy board exchangeability.  With our system, the board ‘clicks’ into brackets in the fixture (provided by us) which eliminates the need for screws. Further, the electrical connection is made via our connector (see attached brochure below).  Field replacement would take seconds…

Joe Laufer, President - BJB USA

The industry, as a whole, does not seem to be interested in 'field repalaceability' but rather most interested in ease of installation during assembly. He continued:

We decided to display at Lightfair to showcase this product and hope to get a lot of feedback about this innovative solution.

September 20, 2018 at 3:19 am 0

Previously appeared in MiddleEastArchitect.com

Solar powered smart street lamps and LEDS for urban greenhouses are among the latest innovations expected to be showcased at Light Middle East 2018

According to a statement released by the exhibition, European manufactures will be heavily present during the event, which will run from 23 to 25 September at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, and will present their latest innovative products

Light Middle East 2018 will feature more than 340 exhibitors from 25 countries, and more than 70 of these will hail from Europe. Many are standalone exhibitors, while others will be part of dedicated country pavilions from Italy, Spain, Turkey, France, the UK and Germany.

"The finest in European technology will be on display for thousands of regional trade buyers, architects, lighting designers, consultants, engineers, and end-users," the statement said, "with leading brands sharing their visions of what the regional urban lighting landscape may look like in the future."

German-headquartered BJB provides a prime example of Light Middle East 2018 exhibitors with an eye on the future. Along with its standard product line of single row optics and COB connectors, BJB will highlight its Urban Farming LED modules, designed to help grow fruits and vegetables in city ‘farmscrapers’.

The launch of the energy-efficient light-emitting diode comes after the announcement that Dubai will be home to the world’s largest vertical farm, and will be welcomed by consultants working on the US$40 million project, which is slated to be completed by the end of 2019.

Other prominent European exhibitors include HEI Technology from Austria, LED Italy, Spain’s Faro Barcelona and Secom Iluminacion, Intra Lighting from Slovenia, and Ragni from France. 

Light Middle East returns in 2018 with all its popular highlights including THINKLIGHT – a three day conference focusing on the key areas of lighting, namely architecture, interior, and landscape design.

BJB Showcases Advances in the Manufacturing Process of LED Luminaires at the 2018 Light & Building Trade Fair
March 24, 2018 at 2:00 am 0

With over 200,000 visitors at the 2018 Light & Building Trade Fair in Frankfurt Germany, BJB showcased an impressive demonstration of our robotic manufacturing solutions for advanced luminaire production. Our unmatched lighting technology enables the integration of innovative components and optics with smart automation technology, thus enabling LED luminaires to be manufactured fast and efficiently.

As originally posted at BJB.com - Press Release

BJB's automated machines, which feature a modular design, are offered not only for linear and area lighting needs, but also for spot and downlight applications. Everything from assembly of complex components, to wiring and testing are possible with BJB’s trademark ADS machines.

It Takes 9 Seconds!

So how long do the automation machines from BJB take to assemble a luminaire with the most advanced lighting technologies? Nine seconds! That’s all it takes for BJB’s automated assembly and wiring machine to manufacture spot and downlight fixtures. In this short amount of time, heat sinks, TIM foil, COBs, connectors for COBs and reflectors are fitted “spot on”.

LED Lighting Components

BJB offers a variety of innovative LED lighting components, such as COB connectors, which are vital, enabling-technology for COB light sources, designed for optimal heat sink attachment, power supply and secondary optic integration. BJB’s product range includes connectors for more than 130 different types of COBs from world leading LED partner manufacturers. BJB’s offers the most advanced and comprehensive range of LED connection technology which are compatible with over 80 percent of all COBs offered on the world market.

BJB says it sees the reflectors and optical devices designed for targeted light direction as an ideal complement to their range of COB connectors. BJB has also advanced the way in which their COB connectors are fixated to heat sinks, by developing an innovative push-to-fix fixing element specifically for blind hole heat sink applications. Thanks to this smart solution, COB modules can be easily fastened to the heat sinks reliably, fast and without threading, helping to improve the thermal management of the entire lighting system.

BJB Automation for Linear Luminaire

And yet another BJB device attracted particular attention at the Light & Building fair, namely an automated machine for linear luminaire assembly: In the first step, a circuit board is installed in the luminaire housing. The distinguishing feature of this BJB product is that the required SMD-P2F fixing elements are already integrated to the LED board via the standard SMT process. This means the LED boards are ready for snap-in attachment without any additional components, which saves time and reduces production complexity for the OEM lighting manufacturer.

Automation of linear luminaires

In the next step, the optics are fitted. BJB’s optical devices also come with added value because of their remarkable ease of installation: The single-row optics feature an integrated fastening system allowing them to be fitted seamlessly to the luminaire housing. With an installation height of about 11 mm, the high-precision optics are very flat and compact in design. They are available in five varieties for different light distribution patterns.

Once the circuit boards and optics have been mounted and the luminaire has been rotated for the next step in the assembly process, the robot proceeds to wire the LED circuit boards for power connection via BJB’s rear-mounted SMD push-through terminal block together with the driver (electronic control gear). This process, too, is accomplished “in no time” with unparalleled accuracy: the cycle period is only 68 seconds.

Leaders in Horticultural LED Lighting

And when the lighting experts from Arnsberg, Germany introduced their newest horticulture lighting product for vertical farming at the trade fair, people across the industry took notice and were very impressed! BJB now offers lighting solutions for urban farming - Wow! This is a future-oriented technology that aims to bring sustainable agriculture to the world’s metropolitan areas.

Horticulture shelf with urban farming modules from BJB

Urban farming is all about the cultivation of vegetables and herbs in greenhouses integrated into high-rise buildings – regardless of weather conditions, without the use of insecticides or pesticides and, above all, close to consumers and thus environmentally friendly: Since there is no need for transport, there are no polluting CO2 emissions, either. Yet light is neededfor plants in urban greenhouses to grow for the common good – and this is where BJB comes into play: BJB lighting experts led by their in-house biologist have been hard at work conducting in-depth research to identify the optimum light spectrum for plant photosynthesis and the optimal modular product.BJB’s urban farming range includes red-blue and red-white LED lighting solutions, integrated in a compact, easy-to-use modular system that’s IP66 rated.
