Design aid for LED lighting

In the Workplace Ordinance A3.4, there are exact specifications for the lighting intensity for workplaces, as well as in DIN EN 12464-1. In the examples below, we will discuss various work areas and explain them in connection with KSP to go® LED. With the KSP to go® LED luminaires at room heights of up to 6 m, you always achieve a cost-effective and usually sufficient lighting. Talk to your customer about the exact activities carried out in the rooms / halls and be sure to inform yourself which regulations have to be applied. Your customer may be using additional luminaires in areas with higher requirements, e.g. Task lights.
Example 1: warehouse about 252 m²

According to DIN EN 12464-1, a minimum lighting intensity of 100 Lux is required for storage and storage spaces, 150 Lux for handling paths with staff traffic and 300 Lux for shipping and packaging areas.

21 x 12 m 5 m 4,7 m 0,8 156 Lux 18 m 9
Example 2: Craft and industrial production approx. 350 m²

For simpler activities in metal or woodworking areas, a minimum lighting intensity of 200 or 300 lux applies. But beware, for more demanding visual tasks, such as fine and very fine assembly tasks, surface processing, control stations etc., there apply much higher requirements of 500 to 1000 lux and above. Depending on the room height and placement of the radiant panels, the KSP to go® LED luminaires achieve an average lighting intensity between 200 and 400 lux, see examples.

35 x 10 m 6 m 5,7 m 0,8 157 Lux* 15 m 20
*The red-marked values are below 200 lux and therefore always require additional lighting.
Example 3: Workshop about 80 m², different room heights

In automotive, wood and metal workshops, an average lighting intensity of 200 - 300 lux is generally applicable. Additional lighting is necessary for individual workstations.

Example 4: Small industrial hall approx. 420 m², room height 10 m

For such high halls, the KSP to go® LED luminaires are only conditionally suitable and generally require additional lighting, depending on the lighting requirement.

Example 5: vehicle hall 150 m², different heights

Depending on whether the hall is only used for parking vehicles or work machines, or whether maintenance work or repairs are carried out, the required lighting intensity varies from approx. 150 to 300 lux.

Example 6: private double garage approx. 37 m²

There are no regulations on the lighting strength, but depending on the requirements of the client (workshop, hobby or party room), good lighting can be useful.
