The quality of lighting environment in factories is closely related to the economic benefits of factories. Good lighting environment can not only provide sufficient light for the daily work of workers, but also enhance the visual comfort of workers, improve work efficiency and reduce production costs.
1. Requirements for factory lighting
Because factory lighting has certain requirements on luminous intensity of lamps and lanterns, it is necessary to meet the normal lighting requirements of the factory as the basic premise in the lighting energy-saving design, take the relevant national standards as the standard, and combine the basic conditions of the factory, so as to configure a reasonable lighting energy-saving design scheme.
2. Selection of lighting fixtures
The light efficiency of light source is an important standard to test the energy saving degree of light source. Under the same color temperature and color rendering index, high light efficiency lamps should be selected first. Secondly, we should consider the luminaire efficiency and luminous flux, because the luminaire efficiency reflects how much light energy is projected from the light source through the luminaire. Then the choice of ballast. In the case of large voltage deviation, constant power ballast can be selected, and electronic ballast can be used when the lamp power is small. Choosing reasonable and correct lamps and lanterns can reduce the loss of electric power and achieve the goal of energy saving.

3. Selection of lighting mode
The lighting area and purpose of the factory are different, so general lighting, local lighting and mixed lighting can be used to improve the utilization of lighting.
In a comprehensive work place, we should choose lamps with good light efficiency and long service life, and equip them with energy-saving and reasonable electrical accessories, so as to meet the lighting requirements of the work site and achieve good energy-saving effect.
Lighting in non-office areas such as roads in factories requires less color rendering, so economic and energy-saving lamps can be selected in these areas.
Due to the different lighting areas in factories, the demand for lighting is also different. Therefore, choosing appropriate lighting equipment and lighting mode can greatly improve the utilization rate of lamps and lanterns, so as to achieve the effect of high efficiency and energy saving.
4. Lighting control mode
Lighting control can be divided into traditional manual control and intelligent automatic control. The traditional manual control method makes the system relatively simple and economical. Intelligent automatic control system realizes real-time control of lighting system by controlling time, dimming and induction.
