BJB responded quickly to the risks posed by the CoVid-19 pandemic. When the pandemic became evident earlier this year, BJB entities throughout the world took the appropriate actions and precautions according to accepted guidelines.

While the health and well-being of our employees is a top priority for BJB, we are able to maintain our focus on outstanding service to our valued customers.

We are strictly adhering to the guidelines of the World Health Organization (WHO) and local governments. This includes elevated hygiene and sanitation standards, observing social distancing principles, work-from-home practices, the utilization of video conferencing in place of face-to-face meetings, and numerous other measures.

Because BJB took comprehensive measures at an early stage of the pandemic, we have been able to provide uninterrupted support and delivery of products. Thanks to sufficient stock levels and proactive supply-chain management, we have consistently delivered products to our customers on schedule - despite several weeks of shutdown in China, Italy, and Spain. Globally, we currently are not experiencing any delivery issues.

The consequences of the CoVid-19 pandemic have now led to a global economic crisis; the long-term extent is still unknown. To promote economic development in the face of the crisis, economic support measures have been implemented in many countries.  BJB has participated in many of these initiatives. These include short-time work allowance in some countries and grants to support employees in others. Financially, BJB has sufficient liquidity and reserves for worst-case scenarios, which have now been increased by several million euros as a precaution.

BJB, as a family business, has been a reliable business partner for over 150 years. You can count on BJB, especially in this difficult time! We continue to aggressively support our customers and partners during the CoVid-19 crisis.

Introducing BJB Optics with 1-Click-Fixing-System: Pitch Dependent and Minimized Glare
June 23, 2020 at 3:37 pm 0

BJB is proud to announce a new family of single-row optics. Designed for 1-click effortless fixing, these optics are designed for linear LED modules for fast, safe, and secure assembly with industry leading light performance.

Our new range of single-row optics can be assembled faster than ever before because of BJB's innovative 1-click fixing. In addition to effortless assembly, BJB optics provide operational safety at the highest level. The optics meet all requirements for NON-SELV applications.

Made from impact-resistant PC, the optics cannot be dismantled without tools. The BJB optic system meets all requirements for protection against electric shock by utilizing a key and slot system that provides additional contact protection.

Pitch-Dependent Optics: Assembly

BJB's unmatched 1-click optics and the LED module are assembled with just one easy step. Tools and additional mounting elements are not necessary because the optics have centering pins and spacers that align them correctly on the boards and firmly connect them.

The 1-click optics (A: pitch -dependent optics) positions and fixes the board (C: Philips Fortimo LED Strip OC board) securely on the luminaire metal sheet (D) or the aluminum profile (E), end caps (B) on both sides form a clean finish.

Perfect for Retail and Commercial

Whether used in retail or commercial settings, utilizing strip, pendant, or continuous-row lighting, the new optics family from BJB ensures outstanding light performance. Lighting fixtures with BJB optics are particularly suited for the lighting of aisles, corridors, parking garages, warehouses, workstations, and general lighting in supermarkets.

The compatibility with a wide-range of LED modules and low glare, indicated by UGR value, provides the most efficient design available in the marketplace. BJB optics provides precise lighting performance essential for meeting the requirements of retail and commercial applications.

Effective and Efficient : Commercial & Retail Use

1-Click Optics: Pitch-Dependent

The Optics 35.324: Pitch-dependent minimized glare product provides single-row linear single optics that are suitable for applications that require optimal light and minimal glare.

The 35.324 single-row linear optics are designed for the Philips Fortimo LED Strip OC* board from Signify. Thanks to the single lens design and micro-structured surfaces as well as lateral eroded structure they are suitable for all applications where optimal light and minimal glare are important. The microstructure surface creates a homogeneous light appearance with reduced COA (Color of Angle), ensuring a harmonious overall aesthetic.

Highlights at a glance are:

  • Novel 1-click fixing
  • Suitable for Philips Fortimo LED strip OC module (35.324)
  • High flexibility in luminaire design
  • Optimal light output
  • Wide range of light distributions
  • Suitable for SELV and Non-SELV applications
  • Centering pins for positioning and fixing of LED module into luminaire hosuing
  • Spacer for correct positioning of the LED module to the optics

About BJB:

BJB has been associated with lighting technology for more than 150 years, initially by manufacturing components for oil lamps and then, since the beginning of the 20th century, by providing the electrical connection between the power source and the lamp. Equipped with this knowledge, we have continuously developed new, user-friendly lampholder systems, terminal blocks and switches up to the present day for markets throughout the world. In other words: We provide a “Connection to light”. The way in which these “connections” are installed and the progress which can be achieved in light fitting assembly is the objective of a further area of operation: ADS automation. Here we develop, build and supply customer-specific systems for the automation of light fitting production. A third important element is our lighting solutions for domestic appliances.
