Staff working efficiently at ABB Drives lit by Philips Lighting

The most
important criteria

when selecting a new lighting solution were the technical characteristics and the ability to connect to our KNX controls system – as well as our partner’s reputation.”

A control of ABB drives lit up by Philips Lighting

Customer challenge


ABB is a world leader in power and automation. Following a property survey at the ABB Drives business unit, the company decided to make saving energy a top priority. Replacing the old 1970’s lights would be no problem for our team. But could we meet ABB’s high standards for control and flexibility, while reducing energy use?

The right lighting

 

The ABB Drives hall is a super-sized space. With 1500 square meters of high-ceilinged factory to illuminate, powerful high bay lighting would be needed. At the same time, it was important for employees to have clear vision without any glare. The Philips GentleSpace luminaire was the answer. Filling the space with comfortable clean light, GentleSpace creates an optimal work environment while saving energy.


Not only does this advanced luminaire improve the workspace for staff, but it is compatible with the ABB’s KXK control system – an important factor for the company. The system enables flexible control over the lights, so they can be operated separately in the 16 areas of the hall, and dimmed whenever necessary.

A long-lasting solution was also important to ABB Drives. In order to test the system fully before rolling it out across the site, a pilot project was launched over 1/16 of the hall, lasting 6 months. After the test period, ABB were happy that the new lighting met all the required criteria.

 

“Natural light is utilised under the control of the KNX system, by reducing or increasing the amount of lighting according to the availability of natural light. Lighting control achieves optimum energy efficiency and maximises the life of the luminaires.”
