LED intelligent lighting system changes classroom lighting environment

In recent years, the country’s investment in basic education has been increasing, but the number of myopic students in primary and secondary schools has increased rapidly. The survey found that poor classroom lighting environment is one of the main reasons for the decline of students’ eyesight.

LED intelligent lighting system changes classroom lighting environment

At present, most of the classroom lighting in primary and secondary schools in China use fluorescent lamps as light sources, or directly use the “lamp support (including electrical components) + bare lamps”, or use “lamps (grid lamp panel/blackboard lamp ) + Fluorescent tube light source method. Most of this type of lighting has the problems of generally insufficient desk illumination, poor uniformity of blackboard lighting, obvious glare easily irritating eyes, and high color temperature easily causing visual fatigue.

Primary and elementary schools, as a place where students live and study for a long time, a healthy light environment plays a positive role in promoting the growth of primary and middle school students.

The LED intelligent lighting system can meet the requirements of all standard contrast and uniformity of classroom lighting. When the total luminous flux of each lamp panel of the three-dimensional lighting LED lamp panel is 3000lm, it is at a level of 0.75m (lesson table height) 7.0m X5.6m The desk area of the student’s class, the illuminance maintenance value (maintenance factor is 0.8) is 336lx, and the illuminance uniformity can be 0.82. The three-dimensional lighting LED lamp panel with increased side and backlighting has a good performance in increasing the uniformity of the three-dimensional space and reducing the glare effect in the space.

Shanghai local standard “Code for design of classroom lighting in primary and secondary schools and kindergartens” was released

The newly revised Shanghai Local Standard DB31 / T 539-2020 “Code for Lighting Design of Primary and Secondary Schools and Kindergarten Classrooms” was approved by the Shanghai Municipal Market Supervision and Administration Bureau and will be released on February 28, 2020, and will be on May 1, 2020 Implementation, when the new version of the standard DB31 / T 539-2020 replaces the old version of the standard DB31 / T 539-2011.

Shanghai local standard "Code for design of classroom lighting in primary and secondary schools and kindergartens" was released

This standard is under the jurisdiction of the Shanghai Education Commission Education Technology Equipment Center. The drafting units include Shanghai Education Commission Education Technology Equipment Center, Fudan University Electric Light Source Institute, National Lamp Quality Supervision, and Inspection Center, National Electric Light Source Quality Supervision and Inspection Center (Shanghai).

The main differences between the new version and the old version are as follows:

1. Added the relevant requirements for LED classroom lighting fixtures. There is no requirement for LED lamps in DB31 / T 539-2011. In recent years, LED lamps have developed rapidly and have been widely used in many occasions, but in the education industry, they cannot be promoted because of backward standards. In this revision, the requirements of LED classroom lighting products are clearly defined. According to the characteristics of this product, strict restrictions are placed on blue light hazards, stroboscopic and flashing, lamp reliability, color rendering, and lighting power density. It will not harm students during use.

2. In order to improve the comfort of classroom lighting, a series of new requirements have been added on the basis of the original standard limits. For example, according to the latest lighting standards at home and abroad, color temperature and other indicators are added. For some places, vertical illuminance is increased, and two levels of basic and recommended lighting indicators are given; the technical requirements of LED classroom lighting products are increased, and light is proposed. Specific indicators of biological hazards; recommended indicators with certain leading values such as intelligent control have been added.

3. In view of the characteristics of children’s eyes, a special section for kindergarten lighting was added to clarify the lighting requirements for all kinds of activity rooms in kindergartens.

4. Based on the national standard GB / T 5700-2008, the test method of classroom lighting is clarified. The method specified in GB / T 5700-2008 is relatively loose and does not match the high limit requirements in the standard. Different testing institutions use different methods in the testing process, resulting in different test results in the same classroom. In order to avoid the above situation, in this revision, the test area, test interval, and test point selection of the classroom have made clear regulations.

5. In order to ensure that the classroom lighting continues to meet the requirements of the standard, the daily maintenance, maintenance, regular testing and service life of classroom lighting products have been specially formulated accordingly. It is required that classroom lighting of newly built, rebuilt and expanded classrooms should be inspected by qualified third-party testing institutions at provincial level and above before the official opening. The testing items should include at least the desk illumination and uniformity, the writing board surface illumination and Uniformity, glare (UGR), lighting power density, color temperature and color rendering index, etc .; also provides for regular maintenance and update of damaged and defective light sources and lamps. When the light source or lamp cannot meet the requirements due to light attenuation, the light source or lamp should be replaced in time; the surface of the lighting device should be cleaned every semester. Every semester the school should conduct re-testing of classroom lighting and so on.

The promulgation of this standard will lead Shanghai primary and secondary schools and kindergartens to further establish a healthy, comfortable and advanced classroom light environment, and provide support for the effective control of students’ poor eyesight rate.

LED Smart lighting strategy starts

Whether or not you consider implementing an intelligent lighting system based on the Internet of Things, it is also wise to evaluate the most basic element of the lighting strategy: light bulbs. Incandescent bulbs are still widely used, but with the advent of LEDs, this situation is changing.

LED Smart lighting strategy starts

Essentially, LED bulbs produce more light than traditional bulbs. When they were first launched, they emitted more “cold” white light. Today, they can provide the same natural “warm” light as incandescent lamps.

Many companies around the world have turned to LEDs, which can be easily installed in existing lighting in most commercial buildings. The reason for their installation is that LEDs are up to 75% more energy-efficient than incandescent bulbs, lamp life is also more than 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs, and generally produce better light quality than incandescent bulbs. In addition to cost savings in energy use, many power companies also provide energy-saving subsidies as an incentive for companies to transform LEDs. Lighting retrofits are generally considered to be the easiest to achieve results because they can immediately and easily help significantly reduce energy consumption.

LED lighting is not only suitable for office buildings, but also for almost all other types of commercial facilities:

Warehouse and industrial environment: Large places like this benefit from LED lighting, because they consume less energy, and LED lights can emit light in a specific direction (unlike incandescent and fluorescent lights).

Indoor farms: Some high-tech farms around the world are using LED lights to optimize plant growth. They do this by customizing light “recipes” and can affect how plants grow and their taste.

Commercial parking lot: For safety purposes, in indoor and outdoor parking facilities, the quality of lighting is critical. In addition to saving money, safety is also one of the reasons why parking lot lighting has become the fastest growing LED commercial lighting market.

Health care facilities: Part of the design of health care facilities is for patient comfort. LED lighting helps create ideal light output for the environment while improving efficiency.

Correctional facilities: Correctional facilities have various lighting needs, from prison cells and activity rooms to lounges and corridors. LED lights do not interfere with the safety and camera, they can maintain a uniform, high-quality light, thereby improving visibility.

Educational facilities: LED lights are ideal for schools with limited budgets, and the energy savings can be reused for technology and other educational resources.

Retail facilities: More and more retailers are using LED lighting to add aesthetic and visual appeal to their stores, thereby creating an excellent shopping experience. Proper in-store lighting can increase sales.

Because LED lights are naturally friendly to digital control, they are very suitable for IoT applications. IoT LED lighting is the ideal way to achieve maximum savings and gain valuable operational insights that can improve all aspects of your building management.

China LED lights are popular in India

“Indian businessmen are constantly looking at the products and have already squeezed my booth,” Ms. Chen, who participated in the India LED Products Exhibition, lamented that although she was exhausted every day, orders from many large Indian customers were still Make her excited.

China LED lights are popular in India

The efficient lighting plan promoted by the Modi government in India has activated the huge potential of the LED market. To save lighting costs, India plans to provide 770 million LED bulbs to the public by 2018.

Since Indian LED products are mainly imported, a considerable part of them come from China. This efficient lighting plan has created huge business opportunities for Chinese LED manufacturers in India.

To understand the popularity of Chinese LED products in India, the reporter specifically visited the 2015 largest LED products and technology exhibition in India, which was held in New Delhi earlier this month.

Chinese companies account for one-third of the more than 200 exhibitors. The LED products on display include materials, chips, equipment, packaging, and lighting accessories, covering the entire LED industry chain. The reporter saw that almost every Chinese booth will be consulted by many Indian businessmen.

Ms. Chen’s Shenzhen Mingyang company mainly provides LED lighting kits for Indian lighting companies participating in government procurement, BAJAJ Electric Company and Indian IT giant Vipro. The head of Mingyang Company’s office in India told reporters that since the Modi government promoted the replacement of incandescent lamps with LED bulbs, orders began to increase steadily.

Chinese LED products enjoy the reputation of “cheap and good quality” in India. Gulabchand Haria is a businessman who does wholesale business in Mumbai and has also visited LED exhibitions in New Delhi. Haria said: “I mainly want to order LED lights from Chinese manufacturers. Although I also operate products provided by Indian suppliers, the price is more expensive than Chinese products, so the sales are not good. So I still hope to sell Chinese goods.”

The reporter saw many Indians asking about a product developed by the Chinese Academy of Sciences for driving LED lamps at the booth of Ms. Chen. Ms. Chen told reporters: “This kind of product is specially designed by experts from the Chinese Academy of Sciences according to the unstable voltage in India. Installing this kind of driver can avoid the damage to the bulb caused by the sudden voltage increase.”

Ms. Chen said that the price of this new product of the Chinese Academy of Sciences is only half of the current ordinary lamp driver on the market, but most Indian customers are still stuck in the product consulting and testing stage. After the product is approved by the market in the future, Indian customers will save half the cost. This is really “cheap and good.”

At the exhibition, the reporter saw a mandatory product registration system table issued by the Delhi test laboratory officially approved by India, which proposed many new standards for LED lighting systems related to products such as TVs, mobile phones, cash registers, and plotters. .

An industry source told reporters: “Although this can be seen as a way for the Indian government to restrict Chinese LED products, it warns Chinese manufacturers that they need to work harder to improve product quality.”

Solar street lights help Spanish city Seville improve urban safety

Recently, Xin Nuofei announced the use of solar lighting equipment to help Seville Elena Park enhance the safety of visitors. In this pilot project, Elena Park will install 20 sets of Philips Sun Stay solar street lights to jointly implement the environmental sustainability of Seville and Xin Nuofei.

Solar street lights help Spanish city Seville improve urban safety

Philips Sun Stay solar street lights integrate solar panels, lighting originals, charge controllers, and batteries in the same device, which makes it quite compact and easy to install and maintain. In addition, it will also help Seville, which adheres to environmental protection and sustainable development, reduce energy consumption, and carbon footprint.

Juan Espadasi, Mayor of Seville, said: “As a leading city in environmental protection development, Seville has always insisted on combating climate change, and its environmental protection philosophy is also in line with the 2030 Seville urban strategy and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. At the moment, all municipal power in Seville is 100% renewable energy. This is precisely the importance of creating green spaces in the city. This innovative commercial project can help increase the use of public space for citizens At the same time reduce emissions and achieve sustainable development. ”

Philips Sun Stay solar street lights can help reduce wiring costs and carbon footprint and reduce overall capital investment and operating expenses. Philips Sun Stay solar street light has a warm light output of 3,000lm and a luminous flux of up to 175lm per watt, which is currently the most efficient solar street light on the market.

After installing the Philips Sun Stay solar street lamp, high-quality lighting allows people to participate in more outdoor sports at night, and also makes the surrounding residents and tourists better use the city’s green public space.

“We are very happy to see the application of solar lighting in European cities.” Harsh Chitale, general manager of Xin Nuofei’s professional lighting business department, said in an interview, “I am very confident that in the future more and more European cities will The installation of solar street lighting will help fulfill our expectations of strong business development in the market segment in the coming year. ”

The new lighting system was installed in June this year. Compared with traditional lighting systems, solar street lights require less time to install. This is due to the fact that its installation project does not involve pipeline installation and other infrastructure transformation, and the input cost is less and the impact on local residents is also smaller.

This pilot project in Seville is another practice of Xin Nuofei on the concept of sustainable development. Xin Nuofei always adheres to the environmental protection commitment of “shiny life, beautiful world” and is committed to providing consumers with more efficient and energy-saving light sources and improving their quality of life. As an important part of the environmental protection commitment, Xin Nuofei has reached a carbon-neutral operation in Spain in 2017.

Annual global street lighting revenue will reach $ 1.7 billion by 2026

It is reported that in 2026, the annual global smart street lamp revenue will increase to 1.7 billion US dollars. However, only 20% of the LED street lights with integrated lighting control systems are truly “smart” street lights. According to ABI Research data, this imbalance will gradually be adjusted in 2026, and the central management system will be connected to more than two-thirds of all newly installed LED street lights.

Annual global street lighting revenue will reach $ 1.7 billion by 2026

Adar Research Chief Analyst Adarsh Krishnan said, “Smart street light vendors, including Telensa, Telematics Wireless, DimOnOff, Itron, and Signify, benefit most from cost-optimized products, market expertise, and proactive business methods. However, By hosting wireless connection infrastructure, environmental sensors, and even smart cameras to take full advantage of smart street light pole infrastructure, smart city suppliers can have more business opportunities. The challenge is to find a feasible business model to encourage large Deploy multi-sensor solutions economically at scale. ”

The most commonly used smart street light applications (in order of priority) include: remotely scheduling dimming profiles based on seasonal changes, time changes, or special social events; metering individual street light energy consumption to achieve accurate usage billing; asset management to improve Maintenance plans; sensor-based adaptive lighting, etc.

From a regional perspective, the deployment of street lighting is unique in terms of supplier and technical methods and end-market requirements. In 2018, North America has been a leader in smart street lighting, accounting for 31% of the global installation base, followed by Europe and the Asia-Pacific region; in Europe, non-cellular LPWA network technology currently occupies a major share of smart street lights, but cellular LPWA networks Technology will soon grab some market share, especially in the second quarter of 2020, there will be more NB-IoT terminal commercial equipment.

By 2026, the Asia-Pacific region will become the world’s largest smart street light installation base, accounting for more than one-third of global installations. This growth is due to the Chinese and Indian markets, which not only have ambitious LED street light retrofit plans but are also building local LED component manufacturing facilities to reduce bulb costs.

LED lights light up high-value agricultural prospects

Using science and technology to assist high cash crops is a new trend in agriculture, especially the application of LED light sources in plant growth is a major breakthrough in recent years. The Taiwan Institute of Industry Research found that replacing LED incandescent lamps with LED lights as night lighting for crops can solve the problem of yield caused by insufficient light, and can also achieve the benefits of energy conservation and power saving, and increase farmers’ income.

LED lights light up high-value agricultural prospects

At present, the intelligent LED lighting control technology of the Taiwan Industrial Research Institute has been adopted in Nantou, Hsinchu, Changhua, Taiwan’s white bamboo shoots, asparagus, strawberries and grapes, and has shown good planting results.

The LED light source can select a specific wavelength to adjust the light quantity and light quality to meet the light waves required by the plant. As a regulation of crop production period, yield, and quality, the LED optoelectronic industry in Taiwan has a complete supply chain and customized design capabilities, and advanced agricultural planting technology. In particular, it is unique in the world. If the advantages of the two are combined, it will create high-value-added LED light source applications and high-quality agricultural products with world competitiveness. With the use of LED lights, the Taiwan Industrial Research Institute lights up the road of high-value economic crops for farmers, and also makes the organic agriculture in Taiwan more transparent and bright.

The LED lamp of the Taiwan Institute of Technology was first tested in the white bamboo field in Puli, Nantou. The LED light was introduced into the white bamboo shoots in Puli, Nantou. The light was controlled by a bulb type. The bulb was directly placed above the plant so that the crop could receive uniform light, Make the efficiency of photosynthesis better.

This kind of irradiation can greatly reduce power consumption by more than half and reduce farmers’ planting costs. LED lights have the advantages of uniform brightness and no light damage, and can achieve the purpose of increasing yield, high efficiency, disease resistance, and no light damage.

Not only white bamboo shoots but local organic asparagus in Taiwan. Even in winter when there is insufficient sunlight, LED light sources to help fill up the light, maintain good quality and stable output, and become the best materials for five-star restaurant cuisine. The juicy asparagus is the result of scientific and technological cooperation between Nantou Jiujiufeng Organic Farm and the Industrial Research Institute.

The Taiwan Institute of Industry and Technology Research Institute develops a “smart greenhouse”, uses intelligent LED lighting control technology to grow organic asparagus, and introduces an IoT planting environment automatic monitoring system, which can automatically measure indoor light, air and soil temperature, humidity, electrical conductivity, and other data Through the analysis of relevant data, the light output of LED lamps is adjusted to create the best light environment for asparagus cultivation.

It has been confirmed that the total quality and efficiency can be improved by 32% through LED lighting. In the future, the software and hardware technology and production management model of this demonstration site can be completely copied and expanded to other crop production, plant factories, simple greenhouses, and other fields.

At the same time, the Taiwan Institute of Industry and Technology also cooperates with the Hsinchu Xiangshan Strawberry Garden. The use of LED light can shorten the number of days required for planting to flowering. It has been shortened by at least 10 to 15 days. Growth form, yield, quality, and inhibition of the occurrence of pests and diseases, and the added value of LED lighting technology have also made strawberry cultivation one of the high-value agriculture.

With the assistance of the Taiwan Institute of Industry and Technology, Wang Lishen, a farmer who grows grapes in Xihu Town, Changhua County, also applied LED night lighting devices to the vineyards.

Because the vineyards in Taiwan are planted in a shed, the branch of the vine shed leaves, and bear fruit on the shed. Therefore, LED lights must be illuminated from bottom to top in order to maximize the economic benefits. After constantly modifying the design and placement of LED lights Finally, successfully developed a module that can replace incandescent lamps, saving considerable electricity bills for farmers.

Advocate LED lighting industry to improve quality and efficiency

After more than 30 years of development, the Chinese LED industry has formed a relatively complete industrial chain. In 2018, the overall sales of China’s lighting appliance industry were about 600 billion RMB, of which LED lighting sales were about 260 billion RMB. China has become the world’s largest producer and exporter of lighting appliances, with a global market share of more than 50%. As semiconductor manufacturing companies and electronics manufacturing companies enter the LED lighting market, competition is fierce. At the same time that major manufacturers are expanding, they are also turning to focus on independent research and development to improve product quality and increase product competitiveness or the general trend.

Advocate LED lighting industry to improve quality and efficiency

Last year, Debang Lighting stabilized and maintained its leading position in the LED light source product industry, achieving an operating income of 4.244 billion RMB, an increase of 6.21% year-on-year, of which domestic revenue contributed a greater increase. Domestic revenue was 1.362 billion RMB, an increase of 42.25% year-on-year. Product structure, sales of LED intelligent lighting products and control systems, increased product value-added gross margin reached 18.77%, an increase of 3.14 percentage points from 15.63% in the previous year. In addition, the domestic LED general lighting leader Optronics had a revenue of 5.77 billion RMB in the first three quarters of last year, an increase of 3.26% year-on-year. Since the transformation for nearly 8 years, it has maintained a growth rate of more than 10%. OP Lighting’s gross profit margin reached 36.41%, which remained basically the same as last year and maintained its leading position.

And Sunlight has an annual production capacity of 400 million LED light sources and 100 million sets of LED lamps. LED products account for about 94% of the revenue. The performance report of Sunshine Lighting shows that last year it realized operating income of 5.321 billion RMB, a decrease of 5.26% over the same period of the previous year, and realized a net profit of 467 million RMB attributable to shareholders of listed companies, an increase of 21.39% over the same period of the previous year. The company increased its investment in independent brands and products, and the proportion of independent brand revenue continued to increase. The gross profit margin of Sunshine Lighting in the first three quarters was 31.37%, which was 7.09 percentage points higher than the previous year’s 24.28%. There are currently 32 listed LED lighting companies. Infineon ’s gross profit margin was 37.56% in the first three quarters, an increase of 4.03 percentage points from 33.53% in the previous year, and Jufei Optoelectronics ’gross profit margin was 27.68%, an increase of 5.82 percentage points. However, it specializes in LED chips. The gross margin of Sanan Optoelectronics has declined, mainly because the price of LED chips has dropped significantly compared to the same period last year.

After the development of the LED lighting market in recent years, it has shifted from the expansion of scale to increase the added value of products and increase gross profit margin. The global LED lighting market has formed three major lighting markets, mainly in North America, Europe, and China. The domestic lighting consumer market has accounted for a slight decline in the growth rate of more than 20% of the global lighting market. In 2019, the global lighting industry’s mergers and acquisitions accelerated, and the concentration of more than 50 large-scale mergers and acquisitions in the industry has increased throughout the year. Therefore, in the fierce competition, Yaboww sought Com to improve product quality and increase its own advantages, thereby maintaining a large Competitiveness. Compared with the high concentration of mature markets such as the United States, Japan, and South Korea, China’s LED general lighting industry is more fragmented. Driven by factors such as increasing technical requirements for the integration of light sources and market demand from single product purchases to overall lighting solution design, the industry ’s concentration will increase in the future and the Hengqiang effect is expected to appear.
