Increasing automation brings fast, precise workflows, and the requirements placed on activities that involve demanding craftsmanship are becoming more exacting. A space needs to cater for a variety of usage scenarios and requirements in order to take both these aspects into account. Different ceiling heights, temperatures and degrees of automation demand functional flexibility. Not only that, industrial architecture and the image that industry seeks to project are witnessing radical change.
Sustainable production technologies are becoming increasingly important in almost all industries worldwide. Companies are putting in place measures to increase resource and energy efficiency and also to optimise production processes, procedures and energy sources. Industrial applications have huge potential in environmental and economic terms and when it comes to human factors.


Whereas in some industrial enterprises extreme temperatures, humidity and vibration represent major challenges, in other companies extreme precision or conscientious attention to hygiene is the order of the day. The measures to ensure maximum reliability are as different as the industrial facilities themselves. The lighting should work at all times regardless of environmental influences, including during power cuts.
Economic conditions demand production increases, more efficientworkflows, improved organisational structures, technological progress and as few faults as possible. Productivity is a long-established concept but is only now giving rise to a complete rethink in many industries. Nowadays, more capital and labour are being invested in optimising productivity from the ground up.


Calculating the potential

The lighting in many industrial facilities is not state-of-the-art. However, employees are still expected to give their best, which under the given circumstances can be either impossible or else very difficult. With innovative luminaires and a professional lighting control system, however, lighting can become a factor that adds value. The best light for industry is:
  • Light that consumes fewer resources but provides higher output
  • Light that responds to changes
  • Light that improves an inividual’s performance and enhances their wellbeing
  • Light that works safely and reliably for many years
With the Zumtobel lighting analysis tool, you can see in a few minutes the potential that a new lighting system would open up for you. The analysis results are concrete numbers that answer pertinent questions about energy consumption or CO2 emissions, such as "How much can I save?", "Where do the savings come from?", or "What potential does a lighting control system have?" The second area of the analysis refers to the flexibility of the lighting. "Where would it be advantageous to respond flexibly to varying requirements, visual activities or occupancy times?" The third level is that of productivity. Increases can be achieved, particularly in areas where repetitive manual work is performed. Factors such as the wellbeing and sleep quality of employees are just as relevant as the speed at which tasks are performed. These are influenced by the proper selection of light colour and by dynamisation of the lighting. The fourth point to consider is the potential for reliability compared to the existing system. You will be shown the percentage by which reliability can be increased by lighting that takes account of specific environmental conditions and carries on operating even in emergencies.
Step one: record the core data for the project and area of application.
Step two: enter the data on the existing lighting system and technologies employed.
Step three: define the zones, their dimensions, visual tasks and ambient conditions.
Result: you will immediately be given a clear overview of the potential of a new lighting system. The PDF version contains all the interesting details as well.
The Zumtobel lighting analysis tool will evaluate your current lighting situation and calculate the potential for refurbishing the lighting in the four core areas: CO2 and cost efficiencies, flexibility, productivity and reliability.

You can perform the calculation on-line at the Zumtobel website at any time. It only takes a couple of minutes to fill it in, and the results are displayed directly on-line and also output as a comprehensive PDF document.

"Production work often involves shift work. Nowadays it is taken for granted that shift work has a negative impact on the risk of accidents and sleep quality. Room lighting can have a positive effect, especially in times when work-related stress is increasing due to an arrhythmic lifestyle. A "productive" lighting solution meets both visual and biological needs. Such lighting solutions often include a lighting control system that varies the intensity of light and light colour based on specific working hours and shift models."

What influence does dynamic lighting have on the well-being of employees who work shifts? To answer this question, Zumtobel relies on scientific research, either directly in the field or in the laboratory. The study results show that dynamic light has a demonstrably positive effect on productivity by reducing physiological strain and improving performance. As a less costly alternative, high-frequency dynamic lighting can increase activity and reduce the stress factor.

"In industry, the requirements in terms of lighting for workstations have increased over the past years. Optimal lighting today is characterised by customised innovative lighting technology integrating the amount of daylight available. The proper arrangement of luminaires, as well as the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of luminaires and lamps play an essential role in this respect. The choice of luminaires depends on ambient conditions – difficult at times –, such as room height, ambient temperature and dirt load. In order to provide for easy cleaning of the luminaires and smooth replacement of lamps, we attach great importance to good accessibility and easy handling."

Specimen solution for a production bay

Electronic components are produced, packed and stored in an area of 1,200 square metres in this specimen bay. The height of the space is six metres, and daylight enters along a window frontage on one side and through skylights. The bay was lit by HID reflector luminaires prior to refurbishment. The comparison with a lighting solution using VALUEA T16 high bay reflector luminaires and another LED lighting solution with CRAFT and LUXMATE LITENET clearly shows the potential of an innovate lighting solution.

CO2-emissions over service life (20 years)                                                             Development of total costs over service life


Lighting analysis

Flexibility                         Productivity                       Reliability 





1. CO2 and cost efficiencies   The existing lighting solution consumes 93.5 kWh of power per square metre and year; the CRAFT LED lighting solution, however, which is controlled by LUXMATE LITENET, consumes only 26.88 kWh. This corresponds to a reduction by 71 percent, with the lighting control system accounting for some 48 percent. The alternative solution using T16 high bay luminaires reduces energy consumption by 13 percent.

2. Flexibility   The illuminance level is 750 lux throughout the bay, designed to meet the very demanding visual tasks in the production area. The ability to reduce the lighting level to 300 lux at the packing station and to 150 lux in the finished goods warehouse reduces unnecessary energy consumption and provides flexibility.

3. Productivity   The lower the illuminance level of ambient lighting, the higher its factor for additional motivation. By increasing the lighting level by 12 percent in the warehouse, by 10 percent at the packing station and by 5 percent in the production area, productivity is increased by an average 8 percent.

4. Reliability   The fact that the luminous flux of a CRAFT luminaire does not decrease even in case of high temperatures below the bay’s ceiling makes the lighting all the more reliable. Another important aspect is the high bay LED luminaire‘s low failure rate, which results in less frequent downtimes and lower maintenance costs.

维斯兄弟公司是一家欧洲最知名的运输物流公司。公司总部在奥地利福拉尔贝格的Lauterach,与奥德堡公司具有长期的合作关系。目前这一合作得到了延续:奥德堡公司为维斯兄弟公司在Pöchlarn的一间2250平方米的物流大厅换下了老式的日光灯管,装上了模块式光带解决方案TECTON LED。

LED能效高,维斯兄弟公司在新建和改建物流根据地时非常看重这一点。在更新Pöchlarn项目时,不仅仅是出于对生态的考量而选择了TECTON LED,因为这一解决方案同时也大大提升了功能性和经济性。“我们当时要找到一种适合工业化的解决方案,在这个基础上,我们可以对不同的大厅区域做出不同的照明,以满足不同的规范要求”,维斯兄弟公司不动产和物业管理部主任Markus Nigsch先生这样解释道。这一点也正是对现代物流公司设施的最关键的要求。例如动感传感器就必须毫无疑问地融入到这个系统里。之所以选择了奥德堡系统的一大原因是,这一系统的维护成本极低:光带和承载轨都是根据即插即用的原理设计的。无论在连接承载轨道元件还是在更换灯具时都不需要工具。此外,LED的使用寿命平均长达10年,因此大大延长了这一解决方案的维护周期。

在对TECTON LED的二氧化碳排放上,Markus Nigsch将其和从Pöchlarn物流大厅退役的日光灯管做了一个比较:“每年的用电量从原来的120万千瓦小时降低到465000千瓦小时。这就意味着,与照明相关的二氧化碳排放量每年降低几乎139吨,仅仅是以前总量的38.6%。”
