For more than 40 years Eltex of Sweden has been developing yarn sensors for textile machines. In 1976, Eltex Manufacturing Ltd was established in Templemore, Ireland and is now the primary production facility for the group

Eltex consider innovation and sustainability as the way forward and have recently heavily invested into modern plant and equipment, a lighting refurbishment being an element of their programme.

Luceco provided the lighting solution using the LuxPanel, a high efficiency, energy saving recessed LED luminaire, throughout their production facilities. A highly suitable replacement for fluorescent multi-lamp fittings, the LuxPanel is quick and easy to install with no maintenance requirements and comes with a 50,000-hour life. LuxPanels are supplied with remote ‘plug and play’ drivers and are available in standard fixed output, dimmable and emergency options.

  • Lighting energy reduction of 64% per year
  • £36,000 of financial savings and 100 tonnes of carbon over the lifetime of the fittings
  • Return on Investment of 3 years

Other areas such as office and conference room facilities saw Academy being employed. Complete with LED array, Academy is designed to be an ideal replacement for linear fluorescent fittings, offering up to 50,000 hours of maintenance free operation. A high quality opal diffuser ensures glare is reduced and the luminaire is also suitable for suspended mounting.
