Where Vertical Farming is Headed & Why BJB is Leading the Way
March 12, 2020 0

BJB plays a vital role in the future of vertical farming, which is the practice of producing food on vertically inclined surfaces, helping communities become self-sufficient.

By 2050, the world's population is expected to grow by another 2 billion people, and feeding it will be a huge challenge. With commercial development and industrial development, we continue to lose land for cultivating farming. With the increased food demand, growing population, and reduction in arable lands, many experts believe that vertical farming can be the anser.

How Does Vertical Farming Work?

Instead of producing food in a field or a greenhouse, vertical farming produces foods in vertically stacked layers commonly integrated into other structures, like a skyscraper, a shipping container, or repurposed warehouse.

Using Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) technology, the revolutionary system uses indoor farming techniques. The artificial control of temperature, light, humidity, and gases make producing foods and medicine indoor possible. Additionally, vertical farming is similar to greenhouses where metal reflectors and artificial lighting (that's where BJB comes in) to augment natural sunlight. The primary mission of vertical farming is maximizing crops output in a limited space.

How BJB Plays a Vital Role in Vertical Farming

Vertical Farming has four vital areas:

  • Lighting (BJB)
  • Physical layout
  • Growing medium
  • Sustainability features

To be clear, the most important goal of vertical farming is producing more foods per square meter. The process is to have crops produced in 'stacked layers' in a tower structure. The most critical element is the technical combination of natural and artificial lights to maintain the perfect light level in the room. Some vertical farming techniques include rotating beds, in order to improve lighting efficiency.

Lighting is such an instrumental factor, and BJB is positioned favorably long-term. Here's a brief video of our product:

Advances in LED technology, of which BJB is a leader, has been a 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 isindispensable 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.

Perfect Light for Every Type of Plant

BJB LED boards can be individually adjusted to your plants according to the required wavelength or customer specification, thus laying the basis for optimum plant growth.

Simple to Use

The BJB LED modules are attached quite simply by means of appropriate support elements with clip fasteners. They can be removed without tools. Electrical contact is via a plug socket.

Very Thin, Leaving More Room for Plants

Thanks to their low installation height of 18 mm and a width of 35 mm, the LED modules are very flat and space-saving. As a result, depending on the system in use, 1-2 additional shelves can be installed, thereby providing more room for plants. Standard modules have a length of approx. 1.20 m.

Protection class IP66 - of course

Our LED modules meet the requirements of protection class IP66 and are therefore adequately protected against strong jets of water. This enables us to achieve optimum performance and service life even under difficult conditions.

Finally, instead of soil, vertical farmers use hydroponic growing mediums. Unique elements such as peat moss or coconut husks and similar non-soil mediums are very common in vertical farming. And vertical farming uses various sustainability features to offset the energy cost of farming. To most people's surprise, vertical farming uses 95 percent less water than traditional farming.

As the world faces new and unprecedented hurdles, BJB is impacting how we address new an innovative ways to become self-sufficient communities. Vertical Farming is on a long-term trajectory of growth, and BJB and our LED modules will lead the way.

BJB Launches a New Family of Single Row Optics for Linear Lighting in Retail, Industry, Office and Commercial
February 20, 2020 0

BJB has developed a new range of single-row optics for flexible lighting design. Because offices, warehouses, production facilities and shopping centers all need flexible lighting systems that deliver maximum efficiency alongside the best possible lighting quality, light-guiding elements in combination with LED modules play a significant role in commerce and industry. And BJB recognizes this.

That's why our linear systems are equipped with various components to satisfy the complex and unique lighting requirements and light guiding elements in combination with LED modules play a significant role involved with daily retail and corporate commerce. BJB has developed two basic models each with five different beam dispersion characteristics, as well as optimized UGR values to limit glare. As a result, these systems are able to cover a wide range of requirements in terms of light distribution and quality within a standardized lighting series.

Whether it be narrow passageways in warehouses, banks of shelves or wide walkways, work at a computer or quality control - the BJB modular system has the right component for every requirement. The system also allows both individual lights as well as strip lighting modules to be created. BJB supplies the new single-row optics as a single-lens element with a low UGR value or as a pitch-neutral version for greater flexibility in terms of the LED distance and luminous flux. Both versions are available with matching end caps.

Learn More About BJB Optics

Optics are the key element when creating high-quality LED lights. The development department at BJB is well aware of this, and has also been focusing on creating high-quality systems from plastic for many years with the latest production equipment. "After all, it's the optic that distributes and directs the light and protects against glare", say the developers at BJB. "Commercial lighting typically has different light quality requirements within the same area. A UGR of 22, for example, is sufficient for a sales floor in a supermarket. At the cash desks, however, where screens are used, the value for glare limitation needs to be significantly lower at UGR 19."

The two new single-row optics from BJB allow flexible arrangements such as this. The 35.324 optic, a co-development with Signify for the Philips Fortimo LED Strip OC, is used in areas that require better glare limitation. The optimised microstructure on the surface also ensures excellent light quality. The single-row 35.301 optic, on the other hand, is compatible with widely available LED modules that are 24 mm wide or narrower, as well as with all common module thicknesses. The dimensions of both optics are 280 x 40 mm (1 foot).

BJB optics bring the light to where it's needed

  • Both versions each have five different light distribution options, covering a broad spectrum of applications
  • Narrow-beam (30 degree), medium (60 degree), or wide-beam (90 degree) optics are available, as well as a double and single asymmetrical design
  • The choice of the most suitable application is therefore determined by which surfaces are to be illuminated homogeneously
Diagram of 5 light distribution curves: 35.324 optic

One-Click Attachment for our New Single-Row Optics

The new 35.324 and 35.301 optics also offer BJB's hallmark advantages:

  • Easy, tool-free installation with just one end cap for both optic series
  • Seamless sequencing and superlative safety
  • And the best bit: the new 1-click attachment

This allows the LED module and the optic to be attached in a single step without any need for additional fixing materials or tools.

Both versions are attached optionally to sheet metal or aluminium profiles, with locking taking place on the inside towards the center of the optic in order to avoid unsightly holes. Centering pins align the PCB and optic perfectly with each other and serve as protection against twisting. Both versions can only be released from the inside of the light using a tool. This provides additional safety with non-SELV applications.

All in all, these new optics for creating linear lighting systems offer a wealth of advantages the likes of which have never been seen in this number: five different distribution characteristics each, various UGR values and superb efficiency. Tool-free installation of the optic and PCB in a single step, tremendous flexibility thanks to clip attachment in light panels or aluminium profiles. The end caps can also feature a customer logo on request. All in all, these optics for linear individual lights or strip light modules serve as the ideal building blocks for creating richly varied, high-quality LED systems from a single source
