Light is the Efficiency Booster

In order to cut costs while providing high-quality light, many luminaire manufacturers today rely on robust LED components and intelligent control technology from OSRAM. Our future-proof lighting systems reduce the power consumption as well as the maintenance effort.

High savings potential thanks to state-of-the-art technology

Many industries today operate on a 24/7 schedule. This calls for extremely energy-efficient, durable, low-maintenance and robust lighting components by which lighting costs can be reduced to a minimum. Moreover, high ceilings and special production conditions in the various industries can necessitate a high quality of light with maximum light output and optimal CRI values, so that employees, as well as the machinery, can work flexibly and efficiently. In many cases, the light must also show a low output ripple current, i.e. it has to be “flicker-free,” so that the functionality of modern machines or scanner systems remains unaffected.

Reducing operational cost permanently

In industrial applications, the failure-free operation of lighting systems is of decisive importance because the luminaires are usually installed at great heights, which makes their maintenance challenging and costly. Often, these luminaires are also subject to heat, cold, dust, humidity or vibrations. This is why very robust luminaires are needed here, and they must also provide a high temperature resistance and a high light output in order to illuminate working areas brightly and evenly. Our extremely reliable and energy-efficient LED system components for the industrial sector save lots of energy and reduce maintenance effort to a minimum. Moreover, systems from OSRAM offer a high product quality, which ensures a long guarantee period as well as a high security of investment.

Intelligent LED solutions

In order to reduce lighting costs even more, many companies today rely on intelligent LED drivers and well-thought-out light management systems from OSRAM. These components are also designed to meet the demanding requirements of the industrial and logistics sector. They offer many opportunities to apply light in a significantly more targeted and efficient way than just a few years ago – from the dimming capability of the LED luminaires and the combination with motion or daylight detection systems to cost-efficient wireless solutions and integration into extensive building management systems. Moreover, our components are perfectly suitable for application with scanner systems.

When it comes to industrial lighting, make sure to be on the safe side with durable and perfectly matched LED complete solutions from OSRAM.

“Industrial customers are primarily concerned with economic issues.” Peter Bach | OSRAM product manager

OSRAM: A lot has changed in the industrial lighting sector. What are the current trends?

Peter Bach:
Most notably, the energy efficiency of LED technology has by now significantly surpassed that of conventional T5 fluorescent tubes. Industrial customers are primarily concerned with economic issues. In many areas, LED technology is superior to traditional industrial lighting, especially in terms of total cost of ownership. This is why more and more industrial customers are now completely switching over to LED technology – and to a corresponding light management system.

OSRAM: How will the future of industrial lighting look like?

Nicolai Heber:
Thanks to LED technology, everything is becoming more intelligent. Therefore, we will also see an increased use of LED driver data, such as energy consumption, dimming level, or remaining lifetime. These data can be applied, for example, for energy efficiency optimization, or for predictive planning and more cost-efficient execution of maintenance work.
