What You May Not Know About BJB’s 150 Year Historic Impact on Lighting
October 13, 2019 at 9:14 pm 0

As the lighting technology continues to evolve, there's one company that's been influencing the industry for over 150 years. That company is BJB. We have been making technology for light since 1867, since petroleum gas was the single source of light, via oil lamps.

It Began with Petroleum Lighting

And it was BJB that produced the necessary accessories, notably the "Kosmos" and "round wick burner". In our initial phase, BJB focused on manufacturing complete petroleum lamps. But eventually, we chose to focus on accessory components, which put us on our historic path to becoming the current world market leader.

Light Goes Electric and so goes BJB

As electricity rapidly spread, a new age was upon us. Major changes impacted the industry. With the evolution to electric, BJB gradually developed the electrical "Bridge to Light", a parallel to our accessory components business within petroleum lights. BJB first produced lamp bases and then, as a result of standardization, the matching lampholders.

First came incandescent lamps, which were later followed by fluorescent, halogen and the various forms of discharge lamps. As the market rapidly evolved, BJB was at the forefront of quality and innovation. BJB earned the title of 'world market leader'.

LED is Here to Stay

Another technical revolution is upon us, and it's called LED. New concepts and flexible innovative designs are possible due to their structural forms and low thermal output. And again, the market had to rethink their position...and the same was true for BJB. New technological solutions were developed for the electrical connection, installation, and fixing of LED boards and COB modules. We are on the cutting edge of LED innovation and automation, as our modular accessory systems enable OEMs to produce individual solutions from electrical, mechanical, and optical components.

Trust from a Historic Brand

No other brand in the lighting industry has established the trust between our partners and clients the way BJB has. No other lighting industry brand has over 150 years of established experience, leading the way with innovative lighting solutions not just through decades, but over a century of historic innovation. Trust is earned by developing quality products that have a high return on investment for our partners. And BJB is proud to continue to lead the way after all these years. And that's why we continue to be 'Technology for Light'.

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.

BJB Attending the African Agri Investment Conference in South Africa, Focused on Vertical Farming Modules
August 25, 2019 at 7:02 pm 0

BJB is excited to showcase our 'vertical farming modules' at the African Agri Conference in November.

The African Agri Investment Indaba (AAII) is the global meeting place for agri-food investment in Africa. Bringing together over 700 key stakeholders – from governments, banks, financiers, investors, project z, project developers, commercial farmers and the agro and food processing industry – to discuss trends that will likely influence food and agribusiness economics over the next decade in Africa.

From Their website: https://www.agri-indaba.com/

Organzied by the African Agri Council in partnership with African governments and government agencies, the Indaba delivers a unique mix of decision makers from across the agri value chain making it the most effective place to conduct business in the sector.

BJB is a major player within the vertical farming industry. Here's why our products stand out: 

The Perfect Light for Any Plant

The LED boards in our modules 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 system.

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
