In many cases, industrial lighting has not changed significantly in the last twenty or thirty years. Many factories have SON, metal halide and/or traditional batten fluorescent fittings. Not only are these technologies inherently inefficient in terms of their electrical usage and light delivery, but they are typically always left on whether a particular production or workshop area is occupied or not; hence creating significant levels of energy waste.
At a time when energy efficiency is at the top of the agenda, assessing and implementing the correct lighting solution is highly important. Sourcing the right suppliers who can deliver the right solution, without production down-time, can be a difficult task in itself. PLS manufactures and supplies a range of high-level and low-level lighting solutions that can deliver savings of around 75%, whilst still delivering the correct lighting levels that your operations require.
"The problem we had with the lighting beforehand was that it was very dim and very poor. We desperately needed to update our lighting and at the same time think about reducing our running costs and improving our carbon footprint. I am very pleased with the work that has been done here and am already arranging our next install with PLS. Having the sensors on the High Levels are great as quite often the area was unmanned. The installations team were friendly, professional and knowledgable."Philip Cooke - Managing DirectorView case study
As previously stated, energy usage within production facilities is high owing partly to the 24/7 nature of the operations. Much of the lighting used is not only inefficient in terms of its energy usage, but also there are no controls in place to automate its use in relation to variable occupancy and presence of daylight.
Our leading lighting technologies help deliver high quality light at reduced running costs. This is achieved by combining leading lamp and luminaire design with intelligent sensor controls, which intelligently turn fittings on and off (or dim them down) when there are no people present or there is a certain level of ambient daylight present.
The graph opposite illustrates the energy usage within a production hall over the course of a week. The area in blue clearly shows the difference in energy consumption, therefore the savings delivered.
