Bespoke retrofit LED lighting modules for East Coast Rail

By August 14, 2015 No Comments

Having been approached by a Specialist Railway Lighting Consultant to look at a replacement LED lighting solution for the East Coast Rail, BSSLED designed a bespoke retrofit LED Lighting Module to be installed into the existing decorative high level globes within many of the East Coast Mainline Stations.

The existing lighting consisted of a mix of SON and Metal Halide lamps of varying colour temperatures and there has been an ongoing issue with both lamp maintenance and energy savings.

The application required a totally bespoke solution allowing retrofit on site with the minimum of luminaire modification.

Having been provided with a sample fitting, we prepared a prototype bespoke retrofit LED Lighting module consisting of CNC machined Aluminium Heat Sink, Circular LED Board with Osram Oslon Square LED’s and a LED Driver with gear tray that would allow installation using the existing fixing holes.

After temperature calculations, light level analysis and vigorous testing the sample was submitted to East Coast Rail for approval.

Once approved, the bespoke retrofit LED Lighting Module was rolled out on many of the mainline stations on the East Coast Line.

With our complete in house Electronic and Mechanical Design and Manufacturing Facility, we are able to offer any type of bespoke retrofit LED Lighting Module to suit just about any type of applications.
