Bergmann Automotive is one of the market leaders for cylinder liners and has been a constant in the automotive supply industry for over 40 years. The cylinder liners are cut out of tubes and the surface is machined appropriately. Today, Bergmann Automotive products and services range from resources to standard parts and a production that convinces through short cycle times that are reliably achieved in the
modern machining centres engineered by Bergmann.
In line with safety standards, the factory workshops have to be equipped with emergency lighting to ensure safe evacuation of the buildings in case of the general lighting system failing. According to DIN EN 1838 it is not only necessary to brightly illuminate emergency exits, but also other safety-relevant areas and potentially dangerous places such as stairs, first-aid spots, etc. Emergency lamps have to meet the requirements of DIN EN 60598-2-22, i.e. to reach full light output within a matter of seconds, meet the minimum values of horizontal light power and, in addition, provide glare-free illumination. Moreover, the lighting should be fast and easy to install and have low energy consumption.
The decisive factor for the use of FieldPower®LED was the fact that it may be used as emergency lighting with central power supply according to EN 60598-2-22. During a test installation including photometry, Bergmann Automotive determined and checked the lighting layout according to the photometric requirements. Afterwards, a first factory workshop was equipped with 60 FieldPower®LED lamps, the installation in workshop number two has already started. The lamps in the workshops have been installed at horizontal distances of 5m at 4.20m height, the lamps in the hallways according to the ceiling heights.
FieldPower®LED provides its flicker- and glare-free light directly after switch-on. It allows for immediate safety in case of emergency and can thus significantly contribute to evacuation without accidents. In addition to this, FieldPower®LED enables enormous time savings due to its fast and easy installation. Another factor is its low energy consumption for a permanent emergency lighting even during daytime.
