Seto XPECT2 LED Lens Module

To test the extreme performance of Seto LED modules, Setolite immerses one of the modules in boiling water during an experiment.

 

To test the extreme performance of Seto LED modules, Setolite immerses one of the modules in boiling water during an experiment. An induction plate set to the highest temperature level is used for this purpose.

 

The XPECT2 LEDs operate at 220-240V when fully submerged in water. Despite the fact that the temperature of the water rises to 100°C, the SETO XPECT2 lens module continues to do its work!

 

The LED module lights up continuously when immersed in boiling water. Even when the module is immersed alternately in cold and boiling water, the 100% will continue to operate without damage.

 

Watch the video below demonstrating that the SETO XPECT2 LED lens module is waterproof and temperature resistant, even under the most extreme conditions!

Elfa 100% CO2 neutral

Elfa has started a collaboration with Trees for All and offsets all its CO2 emissions for a cleaner and healthier climate.

 

Elfa was already energy-neutral and now is 100% CO2-neutral as well.

Elfa takes its responsibility to contribute to a cleaner and healthier environment for future generations.

 

That is why Elfa has started a cooperation with the Trees for All foundation.

Trees For All is committed to a healthier climate, restoration of nature and biodiversity and better living conditions by planting and restoring forests worldwide.

With this partnership we compensate every ton of CO2 emitted.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How does a CO2 offset for a healthier climate actually work?

Trees extract CO2 from the air and store it in their trunks, branches and roots. This storage can be converted into CO2 rights or 'carbon credits'. One carbon credit is equal to one ton of CO2.

 

We look forward to the positive results!

Elfa invests in logistics facilities

Last week two employees of the company Logistore came by to install the new 'Masterdata Toolkit' and to provide training for the logistics and content department.

 

Nowadays companies and organizations are constantly evolving and are increasingly influenced by digitization. The optimisation of operational processes is a goal that we continuously strive for, as well as increasing our productivity. The idea is to work smarter and more efficiently.

 

That is why Elfa is investing in its logistics facilities by means of a Logistore measuring, weighing and scanning system. Using the 'Masterdata Toolkit' we digitally obtain the dimensions, weight, barcodes and other product data of our range. All the data needed to guide the article through all the logistic processes in a smarter, faster, error-free and sustainable way.

 

Watch a demonstration movie below:

 

 

 

After manually entering our own article number, the digital measuring tape scans the product's barcode so that the measurement results can be linked to the unique product.

When the article is placed on the digital weighing platform, you first scan the article using the digital measuring tape.

Like the well-known tape measure, the digital tape measure works with an extendable tape that is printed with barcodes.

 

When measuring length, width and height, the barcode scanner reads the distance corresponding to the stretched length.

These dimensions are immediately stored in the right place in our system.

 

In this platform, the weight of the article is also processed at the push of a button.

This data is stored in a folder for further processing by the content department.

FIAMM High - Rate Long Life Lead Acid Battery

Elfa supplies a wide range of maintenance-free lead-acid batteries from FIAMM. These lead-acid batteries are characterised among other things by their good cyclic performance and high power density. The robust housing is made of impact and shatterproof ABS plastic.

Important for the well-known battery brand, the batteries act as back-up power solutions to ensure continuity of energy supply to critical applications in the event of an interruption to the power supply. Elfa therefore supplies FIAMM batteries to telecommunications, data centres, railways, power plants, petrochemical plants and to parties wishing to realise energy storage from renewable sources, among others.

 

An example is the Fiamm High Rate Long Life 12FGHL28 lead-acid battery. This battery is ideally suited to generate a high discharge current in a short time.

Suitable for air/sea/rail/road transport (non-hazardous) and 100% recyclable. Fiamm batteries are suitable for UPS systems, emergency lighting and traction applications. They can withstand cyclic operation and can be deeply discharged in case of emergency. This battery can be used in almost every emergency power system.

Case - Portpay

In cooperation with the company Portpay B.V., Elfa developed a stainless steel housing containing a Lithium Iron Phosphate battery (Lifepo4) that is fully compliant with the customer's program of requirements. Thanks to its high energy density and fast charging time, the battery can power the smart monitoring system during the summer days.

 

 

Construction video

 

The canals in Amsterdam are navigated by thousands of residents, visitors and tourists every day. To ensure safety and to continue to improve the quality of life, it is necessary to monitor all water movements on the canals and, where necessary, to make adjustments by means of regulation and by tackling nuisance. Portpay is the organisation commissioned by the City of Amsterdam to monitor and manage the canals using an advanced dashboard.

 

 

Housing made "transparent

 

This dashboard is fed with data that comes from smart sensors and cameras that are placed by the company Portpay B.V. Sensors are nowadays very advanced and measure several values at the same time. Through the platform of Portpay B.V., various signals received from the sensors are merged and combined into usable data. By setting certain limit values, system users are steered towards things that deviate from the 'norm'.

 

All the data together is used for big data analyses and for making improvement proposals. To make the analyses possible, the sensors in the field have to send the collected data to the central database. The data collection is realised by using Wifi, 4G and the in-house LoRa network that Portpay B.V. has rolled out throughout Amsterdam.

 

Overview of all components

 

 

For data collection, Portpay B.V. uses computers with Linux software and cameras that are directed at important junctions along the canals. The system needs to collect data 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is powered by LFP battery technology.

 

In summer, this means that a maximum of 7 hours of charging takes place at night, followed by 17 hours of operation during the day (and therefore discharging).

Elfa developed a stainless steel casing containing a Lithium Iron Phosphate (Lifepo4) battery that is fully compliant with the customer's programme of requirements. Thanks to its high energy density and fast charging time, this battery can continuously supply power to the smart monitoring system during the summer days. The advantages of Lithium Iron Phosphate (Lifepo4) batteries include long life, little or no maintenance, extreme safety, light weight and charging efficiency.
