Successful conversion - Robert Bosch Fahrzeugelektrik Eisenach GmbH




Freiham, Germany



The Bosch Group is a world-leading technology and services company with numerous locations across Europe, Asia and the USA. The company improves the quality of life for people around the world through innovative products and services. The production site in Eisenach manufactures sensors, transmission controls and 48-volt batteries that make driving safer, more efficient and more comfortable.

In order to cover the increased need for space in the plant, Robert Bosch Fahrzeugelektrik Eisenach GmbH decided to expand its production and logistics areas as well as modernise existing areas. For the conversion of a production hall, our lighting experts developed a lighting concept that enabled Bosch to convert the outdated fluorescent tube technology into LED lighting quickly and easily. The energy-efficient, single-component continuous rooflights were installed in one step, which equates to a reduction in the installation time of around 70% compared to conventional quick-mount systems.

As the traditional carrier rails are not needed for REDOX continuous rooflights, the ceiling was installed in just a few minutes. In daily use, the IP66-certified REDOX continuous rooflight system offers extremely high luminous efficacy with minimal energy consumption. The seven-pin REDOX generates continuous, shadow-free light and offers effective LED technology in a range of module lengths. The LED luminaire comes with a light colour of 4000K as standard, with a colour rendering value of Ra 80. The luminaire's efficient temperature management ensures a high useful life of at least 100,000 hours. REDOX can be used in temperature ranges from +45°C to -25°C, while dimmable lighting can be added as an option through DALI. Each luminaire has been extensively tested and bears the European ENEC mark for certified safety.
