Wireless industrial lighting in JULI Motorenwerk Ltd.

Company

JULI Motorenwerk, Ltd. is one of the world's largest manufacturers of handling equipment. With its nearly 300 employees the company provides annual production of up to 300,000 electric motors. This makes JULI Motorenwerk one of the world's largest manufacturers of electric motors and handling equipment.

The company was looking for an efficient lighting solution for their production halls. There was a need to replace current sodium lamps with LED lights and to find a comprehensive lighting control system. The new system must have taken into account the great variability and frequent changes in production and warehouse layout. With regard to all these requirements the wireless lighting control system DATMO Radiocontrol was selected. The system includes software and hardware equipment with MSB-CI WL (wireless monitoring light point) and concentrators. These units provide management, data collection and wireless communication of every single light.

Wireless system

There is the IQRF wireless technology used in DATMO Radiocontrol. The IQRF operates in the free 868 MHz band and supports the wireless mesh networking with bidirectional encrypted communication. The best features of the IQRF Data Controlled Transceivers are small size, low power consumption and long distance range. The concentrator provides mesh networking and two-way communication between operating SW and each MSB-CI WL. One concentrator can control up to 239 MSB-CI WLs. The number of concentrators connected to one control software is not limited.

Provider

DATmoLUX a.s. (DATmoLUX joint-stock company) has specialized in the development and production of electronic products and software in the area of street lighting and operations in the area of measurement and control generally since its establishment in 2000. The company ensures flaw detection testing of poles using the ROCH company method for support in these fields. Supplies of HARVARD ENGINEERING electronic gears for both street and interior lighting represent a separate part of the company's activities.
