Jebsen Industrial has designed and supplied the lighting system for the new BYD Auto Crash and Safety Laboratory in Shenzhen.  An advanced facility that supports the research and development (R&D) of electric and hybrid vehicles, it relies on state-of-the-art Arri lighting equipment and on-going maintenance support from Jebsen Industrial.


Built with an investment of nearly RMB 200 million, the BYD automotive safety lab has three main labs for vehicle collision testing, collision simulation and pedestrian protection testing. Specialist lighting is necessary to ensure the visual quality of the high-speed photography that is essential to the vehicle testing process.


To meet BYD’s strict technical requirements and its need for efficient and cost-effective deployment, Jebsen Industrial proposed a complete lighting solution. This solution is based on Arri lighting products designed especially for vehicle safety labs, including the ARRISUN Industrial PAR (Parabolic Aluminum Reflector) lampheads and Arri compact floodlights. Jebsen Industrial stationed a team of more than ten technical experts at the BYD site for six months from mid-2013 to implement the system and conduct training for lab staff.





Arri , a German company founded in 1917, is considered the world leader in the design and manufacture of advanced cameras, lighting systems, and digital intermediate equipment. Its safety lab systems offer optimum light output and flicker-free performance, stability, reliability and durability.


“Automotive safety testing labs have complex lighting needs that require specialized equipment and technology and a high level of service. Jebsen Industrial is the ideal solutions provider for the industry. We have been the Greater China partner of Arri since 1960 and a leader in the automotive sector here for almost 100 years. This gives us the technical expertise and local knowledge to take projects from design and production to installation and maintenance,” said Mr. Glavin Huang, Manager of Cinematic & Broadcasting Solutions Department, Jebsen Industrial.

An Arri lighting system designed and supplied by Jebsen Industrial is used by Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center (PATAC) in Shanghai, which opened one of the world’s largest and most advanced vehicle safety R&D centres in March 2009. Built to General Motor’s global standards at a total investment of RMB 150 million, the facility has 33 high-speed cameras and 27 crash test dummies.


Jebsen Industrial provided lighting equipment, lighting control systems, electrical systems, bridge design and related structural drawings for PATAC. It liaised with Arri and several domestic suppliers to maximize technical and design efficiencies and achieve a 20% cost saving compared to initial project estimates. Jebsen Industrial also provided installation support and staff training.


Subsequently, Jebsen Industrial has designed and supplied the lighting systems for new and upgraded facilities at Changchun Automotive Test Center (CATC) and several automotive safety labs in Guangdong province.


“The technical strength of the Arri lighting products and our project management capabilities combine in complete solutions that this demanding industry can rely on,” Mr. Huang said.
