BJB Launches a New Family of Single Row Optics for Linear Lighting in Retail, Industry, Office and Commercial
February 20, 2020 at 2:38 am 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

BJB Connection Interface for Outdoor LED

Luminaires: Elektromechanical Interface for Outdoor Luminaires corresponding to Zhaga Book 18. This interface has been developed especially for LED light sources and drivers in outdoor light fixtures. The basis for this development is an IP-compliant receptacle with a sealing cap. The unit provides a complete electrical interface between the receptacle and the respective sensor modules. When used in conjunction with sensor-compatible certified drivers (e.g. Philips), the receptacle assembly is suitable for a plug-in sensor module with a twistlock system. For communication and data transmission, the module is provided with DC power and a DALI 2 or a 2-wire bus. The fourth connection is reserved as a digital IO port. The compact design with an improved seal facilitates the installation of the sensor module on roadway, street and surface area lights upwards, sideways or downwards.

LFS - The modular system with maximum handling convenience: For lighting solutions in supermarkets, warehouses or industrial buildings, for example, the requirement is often not only for a defined light intensity, but also a specific light distribution. In order to meet these demands, we have developed special optics for the Linear Flat System which currently feature six frequently required characteristics. In supermarkets, for example, the shelves can be highlighted and accentuated by using modules with asymmetric light distribution, whereas for general lighting, depending on the luminaire mounting height, the broad- or narrow-beam versions may be suitable.

BJB Recognized for Addressing LED Assembly and Field Replacement Disadvantages with New Connector, as featured in LED Professional
November 18, 2019 at 6:37 pm 0

BJB was very excited to have been recently featured within LED Professional, the global information hub for lighting and technology. They specifically highlighted our industry leading LED Connector, that has drastically reduced time and assembly cost for those utilizing modern LED fixtures.

As those in the industry know, modern LED fixtures that utilize non-replaceable LEDs have created concern and angst in the industry. Zhaga Book 21 addresses these shortcomings by standardizing linear 'socketable' LED modules. Consequently, BJB has developed a two-part fixing and electrical connection system, which enables LED modules to be installed and subsequently replaced as easily as conventional light sources.

BJB's innovative and revolutionary LED connector 47.303 provides reduced assembly costs and dramatically faster retrofit or replacement times.

The Main Advantages of LED Connector 47.303

  •   Ideal for simple fixing and electrical connection of linear LED boards according to Zhaga Book 21
    •    Quick installation, release and replacement of LED boards without tools
    •    Wiring below the luminaire housing means no shadowing or disruptive components in the light emission area
    •    Suitable for seamless applications due to continuous pitch
    •    Luminaires upgradeable through simple replacement when improved LED boards become available
    •    Reduction in number of versions and capital tie-up due to "late stage finishing"
    •    Wires can be released by twisting and pulling
    •    Suitable for automatic wiring
    •    Ideal for use in circular economy initiatives
The BJB board connector 47.303

As featured on LED-Professionals.com, "The BJB socket and fixing clips can be installed without tools by snapping them into cut-outs in the luminaire housing. The BJB 47.303 system utilizes rear-side, releasable wiring ports. Wiring can be manual or via automatic wiring with the BJB ADS system.  The LED module is secured at the contact end by means of a lever mechanism, and along the module by easy-to-use fixing elements. These features enable light sources to be easily replaced with minimal effort. This combination of holder and LED board is suitable for use in linear luminaires in shop, office and industrial applications."
