Lighting Industry Wire & Cable Solutions
Light is a critical aspect of the day-to-day operations of every business sector. In fact, according to the European Commission, 15-18% of all global energy consumption can be attributed to lighting applications. We use light to illuminate our offices and industrial facilities, analyze products and materials, and ensure worker safety.
It is no surprise that the lighting industry is expected to continue growing, as countries around the world grow economically. With more attention on global emissions and energy usage, the lighting industry has continued to evolve to meet industrial needs with technological advances such as cost-effective LED lighting and energy-efficient horticultural setups.
Consolidated Electronic Wire & Cable is pleased to provide innovative lighting wire and cable solutions using the latest technology in the industry. We offer a broad selection of quality wires, cables, connectors, and fixtures suitable for a range of lighting applications. With over 100 years of experience, we understand that each industry has different lighting needs, and we have the knowledge to ensure that those needs are met. The correct lighting equipment will help your business reduce energy costs, increase productivity, and improve worker health and safety.
Lighting Industry Challenges
As a critical industry, lighting must overcome numerous challenges to meet the needs of particular applications.
Lighting wire and cables must be streamlined and efficient to produce quality lighting quickly and reliably. Installations for complex arrays, such as sports arenas, venue stages, and filming studios must be well organized for fast installation and easy use.
Flexibility and Adaptability
Wires and cables used for lighting must be adapted to the lighting needs of each individual application. Outdoor equipment, for example, may require weatherproofed materials and fixtures that are not necessary for indoor use. Some lighting equipment must also be organized and sized to fit compact or complex spaces.
Regulations and Standards
If incorrectly handled or installed, lighting wire and cable can present significant danger to operators. To ensure the safety of workers and operators, numerous organizations have developed industry standards and regulations, including:
- International Standards Organization (ISO)
- Underwriters Laboratories (UL)
- American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
- National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA)
- Illumination Engineering Society of North America (IESNA)
- Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE)
It is important for your lighting equipment to meet all of the applicable standards and guidelines to prevent costly and dangerous errors in lighting installation and usage.
