Light automation reduces energy consumption by up to 60 percent

To ensure that workplace lighting is on only when needed – and only as much as is necessary – Bosch Rexroth AG and Robert Bosch GmbH have deployed a new, automated illumination control system using the IndraLogic PLC. It is suitable for all types of buildings, from factory halls to office complexes, and allows the light intensity be set to the required level as a function of the available daylight and the pres­ence of persons. And on the basis of sensor signals, the control system also determines the right switch-on and switch-off times. The illumination control system is being successively deployed at all sites of the Bosch Group. It is extremely efficient: light automation reduces energy consumption by up to 60 percent.
