Reliability and energy saving thanks to light monitoring

How LED systems help companies reduce CO2 emissions and costs and increase safety through predictive maintenance.

Attention: a warning on the tablet! In the final production, two lamps must be changed. – This alarm could be triggered today by a smart LED lighting system. AND BEFORE a malfunction. What would have recently passed as science fiction is now a reality.

Companies that rely on networked LED technology can find out in real-time how their lighting is doing. The result is completely new possibilities for action and savings potential. The abbreviation LED (for English “light-emitting diode”) was already a synonym for energy saving, because LEDs save up to 50 percent energy compared to conventional light sources. With an intelligent control system, however, there is even more to it. Companies also save up to 30 percent of energy.

Reduce energy costs with LED lighting, CO2-Reduce emissions, and improve workplace quality.

With usage data for even more efficiency
The secret of smart LED systems: All light points that are networked within a company continuously collect data on consumption and pass it on to a cloud. From this, an overview of all consumption data is created on a dashboard, which employees can retrieve, for example, on a connected tablet. And even more: The data can also be combined with information from, for example, presence detection, shift models, duty and cleaning schedules, or even other locations. For building and energy managers, insights can be gained as to where lighting can be optimized and thus energy saved.

More safety through smart lighting infrastructure
Smart LED systems also pay off for companies when it comes to security. Especially in industrial plants and production, clear visibility is usually indispensable in order to avoid accident risks and to protect health. An intelligent lighting system has the advantage that it indicates necessary repair and replacement measures at an early stage. Maintenance can thus be carried out before a malfunction. As a result, imminent failures and associated dangers can be avoided. The company also has the opportunity to adapt maintenance cycles to real needs. In addition to the added security, there is a minus in costs in this way.

Lighting solutions for the industry
Professional LED systems can be updated at any time via software updates and scaled with upgrades. Building managers are also able to combine the real-time and historical lighting data with other IT and building management systems according to their questions and needs. In this way, business processes can be made more transparent bit by bit, costs can be saved and energy consumption and CO2-Permanently reduce emissions.

What a solution for a company must look like ultimately depends on individual requirements and conditions on-site. It is therefore advisable to advise experts with comprehensive know-how, such as the lighting experts from EWE.
