Signify & BJB Develop Industry Leading Holder to Make Exchanging LED Boards Effortless
September 29, 2019 at 6:14 pm 0

Together with Signify, we have developed a holder that makes it easy to exchange LED boards. While this product is not yet available to the public, we are excited to showcase it, as published on the Signify homepage.

The product, Fortimo InstantFit LV1, is currently in Pre-Launch. This revolutionary breakthrough ensures that an LED troffer containing it will never have to be scrapped on account of the light source. Replace simply by snapping into connector on the fixture. This enables late stage fixture configuration at factory, RDC, distributor, or even in the field. Fortimo InstantFit LV1 comes with a range of performance levels both in 2ft and 4ft options; and the rigid aluminum frame provides excellent thermal performance and ease of assembly.

Our innovative system has been selected for the 2019 IES Progress Award, and we are very excited about that!

What's New:

  • High energy efficacy of up to 170lm/W at nominal conditions
  • Available in three performance levels for both 2ft and 4ft lengths
  • Rigid module for easy assembly
  • Excellent thermal performance
  • 3 SDCM color consistency

Benefits:

  • Field replaceable modules according to Zhaga Book 21 enabling late stage configuration and peace of mind
  • Quick assembly without screws
  • High energy efficacy and long lifetime1
  • 5-year limited system warranty with Advance Xitanium LED drivers2

BJB'S LED BOARD QUICK-CONNECT SYSTEM:

The board connector is clipped into the luminaire housing. The key feature is the LED boards, which can be installed or exchanged as easily as conventional lamps. BJB supplies the appropriate PCB connector for the purpose. A metal spring securely snaps to hold the LED board in place.

To remove the LED board, simply release the springs for fast and simple board replacement. A clever and unique solution and a  significant advantage for board installation and replacement.

The wiring is hidden from sight in the luminaire housing.

Suitable for the new LED board generation and in conformity with draft Zhaga Book 21 e.g. Fortimo Instant Fit from Philips.

ADVANTAGES OF THE SYSTEM:

- Ideal for reliable fixing and connection of LED boards
- Quick installation and replacement of circuit boards without tools 
- Wiring inside the luminaire housing means no disruptive components in the light emission area
- Suitable for seamless applications due to continuous pitch
- Upgradeable due to easy replacement when new LED boards become available
- Reduction in number of versions and capital tie-up due to “late stage finishing”
- Suitable for automatic wiring via push-in wiring
- Wires can be released by twisting and pulling
- Ideal for use in circular economy initiatives

BJB & Repro-Light Consortium Aim to Transform the European LED Industry
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.'

VISIT REPRO-LIGHT HERE

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, Rohner 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'.

Download Survey Here

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 an 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.

But the role of domestic appliances themselves has also changed. In the past, they were simply referred to as “white goods”. Now, large kitchen appliances and fittings have become a specific feature of our lifestyle. The kitchen is now a livingspace in many homes, with appliance as the predominant features within kitchens. When appliances are showcased in a contemporary fashion, they had value to the entire home experience. And it's modern LED lighting, and the fixtures that BJB engineers that make this experience come to life.

GOOD LIGHT MAKES DOMESTIC APPLIANCES BETTER

In large domestic and kitchen appliances, good light represents a new dimension in the perception of quality. For designers, developers and manufacturers it is therefore becoming a new distinguishing feature and "visible" evidence of innovative thinking.

BJB makes quality visible! With this approach and our decades of experience with lighting technology and domestic appliance lighting, we cover all stages of product development with our own resources - from the idea through to series production.
