Cross Agricultural Engineering recently completed a lighting retrofit using ROBUS products. Cross Agricultural Engineering manufacture quality farm machinery; Beet Washers, Slurry Tankers, Ring rollers, Post Drivers and more. They are based in Newtown, Rathangan, Co. Kildare, Ireland and they first heard of ROBUS through a local electrical wholesaler who put them in contact with their local ROBUS Area Sales Manager; Emma Carter.
A complete lighting retrofit of their outdoor areas, warehouse, offices, canteen etc. was required for Cross Agricultural Engineering . They needed efficient, reliable and high quality lighting and ROBUS were able to meet their needs with suitable lighting for all areas. 4 ROBUS products were chosen; ROBUS HARBOUR, ROBUS SCHOLAR, ROBUS CHAMPION, and ROBUS SONIC.
Cross Agricultural Engineering needed a weather resistant and powerful lighting solution for their outdoor areas. The ROBUS CHAMPION 170W LED flood light (RCM20040-04) was selected as it has die cast aluminum housing which provides optimal heat dissipation and high resistance to weather conditions. This makes it suitable for Irish weather with high wind and rain. The ROBUS CHAMPION is also highly efficient; reducing electricity costs associated with traditional light sources by around 50%. There are now 20 ROBUS CHAMPION flood lights installed all around the roof perimeter of Cross Agricultural Engineering.
The ROBUS HARBOUR LED CORROSION PROOF (RHA58405FT-24) was selected for the Back Workshop, Office, Canteen, Toilets, Paint Shop, Paint Stores, Machine Shop, Power Washer, Main Store and Front Store. The ROBUS HARBOUR LED CORROSION PROOF was chosen because of its optimum LED performance and reliability due to the high quality Tridonic constant current driver within the product. It is a very adaptable fitting which made it suitable for many areas of the company. There are now 61 ROBUS HARBOUR battens installed in Cross Agricultural Engineering.
Cross Agricultural Engineering required durable lighting for their back workshop, stores, and Assembly & Machine Shop. The ROBUS SONIC range utilises a tempered glass cover with seal which means the glass will not be easily broken when used in industrial applications and has an IP65 rating so can be installed in damp or dusty environments. The ROBUS SONIC body is manufactured from die-cast aluminium for excellent heat management to enhance LED and driver life. This also means it is strong and durable with a high impact rating so is not easily damaged by the occasional fork-lift knock. These characteristics made it the ideal lighting solution for the Back Workshop, Stores, and Assembly & Machine Shop and they installed 65 of the ROBUS SONIC Highbays (RSN15050DAS-04).
ROBUS SCHOLAR 2x30W LED batten (RSC604015-01) was selected for the Offices, Computer Room, Boardroom, Upstairs and Downstairs Hall. They installed 30 of the ROBUS SCHOLAR battens. These superb IP44 fittings replace standard 2 x 36W or 2 x 58W T8 fluorescent battens. With an attractive and pleasing aesthetic, the ROBUS SCHOLAR will make significant energy savings of around 40% and provide an exceptionally long service life, without the high costs associated with traditional tube changes and labour.
Cross Agricultural Engineering are very happy with their ROBUS retrofit. The new fittings are durable, efficient and suit the nature of their business. The lighting upgrade will result in estimated energy savings of €12,145 per year.
