LED-BRIDGING: Innovative Connection Technology for Interchangeable LED Systems
April 25, 2019 0

BJB is Technology for light, and it all started well over a century ago! Here's why we are bridging the future. We began in 1867 in Arnsberg, Germany with the production of components for oil lamps.

It started with oil lamps

Logically, when the incandescent lamp established itself as the universal light source, we provided the electrical connection between the power source and the lamp. Today, we also develop and produce innovative, user-friendly lampholder and connector systems for LEDs, the light of the future. We call our products “Your connection to light”. But they are also your connection to the future – we will always retain our enthusiasm for new ideas.

Oil Lamps to LED - BJB is Technology for Light

LED - the light that adjusts to any atmosphere

Creative freedom indoors and outdoors LED is a quick-change artist. The light can look cool or warm and appear white or coloured. On the roads, it can show directions and warn of dangers. Bright enough for nothing to be missed. Discreet enough for no-one to be dazzled or distracted. As simple general lighting indoors, LED can ensure that space, objects and people are correctly and evenly illuminated. Or an individual lighting design can be used to create focal points. And outdoors, of course, LED can present places of interest in an even more interesting light, with small lamps producing impressive lighting effects in public places.

Standards for Individual Solutions

Because LED technology is developing at virtually the “speed of light” and more and more manufacturers are working with it, standards are necessary to enable the numerous advantages of modular design to be exploited. For this reason, an international group from the lighting industry has founded Zhaga (LED Light Engine Standardization).

The aim of Zhaga is to promote quality and speed of innovation in LED lighting technology and to create the right conditions for the interchangeability of components. With this objective in mind, the consortium is defining the interfaces for many application-specific modules. Zhaga standards define the physical dimensions as well as the photometric, electrical and thermal behaviour of the individual elements, no more, no less. This prevents fragmentation of the market as a result of incompatible products and creates a secure future for both producers and consumers.

The Zhaga group includes companies from the entire LED lighting industry, providers of LED modules and luminaires, as well as suppliers of components such as interfaces and lampholders, heat sinks and optics.

What is Vertical Farming? We are glad you asked!
April 23, 2019 0

Vertical farming 'is the practice of producing food in vertically stacked layers, vertically inclined surfaces, and/or integrated in other structures, such as in a skyscraper, used warehouse, or shipping container.

The modern ideas of vertical farming use indoor farming techniques and controlled-environment agriculture (CEA) technology, where environmental factors can be controlled. One of the most critical components required for successful vertical farming is utilizing special LED lighting systems with spectrums that provide ideal growing conditions. BJB is a leader in providing LED technology for cultivating these 'indoor farms'.

As such, BJB and our LED boards in our modules can be uniquely modified depending on your plants, specifically designed according to the required wavelength. Customers have the flexibility to select the desired LED lighting to achieve the ideal plant growth.

Simplicity of use and space efficiency are two of our major differenciators, as our support elements utilize clip fasteners, and can be removed effortlessly without tools via a plug-socket system.

BJB Develops Connection Interface for Outdoor LED Modules
April 20, 2019 0

The model for the future design of human living areas is a “smart city” with intelligent technologies and applications. Smart Cities utilize sensors and controllers in outdoor lighting to conserve resources and enhance human comfort and safety.

The best LED lighting systems integrate intelligent modules via a ‘twistlock’ connection. With this evolution in mind, BJB, in accordance with Zhaga Book 18 standards, has developed the 47.121 series of module receptacles for easy installation and exchange of smart modules.

"Electromechanical interfaces has been BJB's speciality for over 100 years” says the developer responsible at BJB. “When the world was first electrified, our company was already focusing on the best ways of combining the light source and luminaire in a harmonious manner. And with LED technology and smart applications for light management, our product range has become even wider.”

The new 47.121 receptacle represents a universal solution for sensors and communication modules, which are connected by means of a ‘twistlock’ system. They can be changed, replaced or subsequently installed in an outdoor luminaire without difficulty. In the latter case, the receptacle is temporarily sealed with a tight-fitting cap.

Easy to install, safe to handle and made of high-quality materials

Like every product from BJB, the 47.121 receptacle is designed for safe, long-term use. In addition to the criteria set out in Zhaga Book 18, typical BJB advantages are also evident, such as easy installation and the use of high-quality materials. The receptacle can be attached to carriageway, street and surface area lights in an upwards, sideways or downwards direction by means of a standardised panel cut-out. For communication and data transmission, the connected module is provided with a DC line and DALI 2 or a 2-wire bus. The fourth connection is reserved as a digital IO port. The contacts have a maximum load of 2 A, 24 V. The module is hot pluggable and takes solid or stranded tinned conductors between 0.5 and 1.5 mm. It is certified according to DIN EN 61984 and UL 773 and has protection class rating IP66.

Lighting Systems for Urban and Vertical Farming
April 7, 2019 0

Today, more than half of the world’s population lives in cities. In 2050, two-thirds of all people will live in conurbations. Traditional agriculture will not be able to cope with supplying the mega-cities with healthy food. 

One possible solution is urban farming – fruits and vegetables grown in the city in “farmscrapers”, i.e. high-rise greenhouses. Special LED lighting systems with a special color spectrum provide ideal growing conditions regardless of the weather outside.

LED modules with red-white light spectrum

Advances in LED technology were the decisive factor for the development of such “indoor farms”. The energy-efficient light-emitting diodes hardly lose any heat and can replace the sunlight which is indispensable for plant growth. For photosynthesis and therefore biomass production, plants only use certain components of the natural light spectrum - mainly red and blue. Compared with conventional lighting solutions for plant cultivation, LEDs increase energy efficiency considerably and can therefore promote the breakthrough of vegetable and fruit cultivation in large cities around the globe.
