Illuminate the Work: The Importance of a High-Quality Light Source

Install. Maintain. Monitor. 

Any person involved in industrial work environments is working with some version of these on a day-to-day basis. It might be an employee looking to install a new component into the electronics enclosure or a worker checking on the function of the electronics to make sure it is running efficiently. Monitoring is something we ALL do in B2B, but it is a particularly vital function in a manufacturing environment.

What do all these functions (installation, maintenance, monitoring) have in common? They all need efficient lighting to ensure faster, better work. To give your business the edge, you need to consider the functionality and the quality of available light inside your electronics enclosure.

At STEGO, we know enclosures and enclosure lighting requirements. We design our lighting solutions from the ground up to be 1) efficient in terms of power consumption 2) meet required North America certifications and 3) easy to install.


Using the latest in mid-power LED technology, STEGO electronic enclosure lighting has several key benefits versus older, traditional technologies, including:

  1. Durability – LED is considered maintenance-free
  2. High luminous flux (if this term is new to you, don’t worry – it’s pretty simple. It refers to the perceived power of light. In other words, low power consumption to deliver impressive visibility).
  3. Three options for triggering the LED
    1.  A simple on/off switch
    2.  A sensor that triggers off movement,
    3.  An external door switch that triggers when the door opens.

Even though LED is quite efficient at “sipping power,” there’s no need to have it on when nobody can see it!

Ease of Installation

Your installer will have no trouble implementing a STEGO lighting solution into your electronics enclosure. STEGO offers:

  1. An integrated receptacle (saves time)
  2. An integrated power unit (saves effort)
  3. Daisy-chaining (easy, repeatable)

With an integrated STEGO lighting solution, a maintenance technician will have a bright, ergonomic light source to wire relays and perform other tasks. Keep your installers and maintenance technicians in mind! Safety and efficiency in their role lead to happy employees and bottom-line savings. 

For questions about installation, please reach out to us via our website. At a minimum, always check the operating instructions, – it’s ok to read the manual even though it goes against your DNA 😉 

Choose the right solution for your installers and users. Pick the STEGO solution to know you’ve got the best lighting for your installation, maintenance, and monitoring.

Designing complex electronics that perform perfectly outdoors is, well, complex. At STEGO, we believe that protecting those complex projects from extreme climates should be the simplest part of your design. That’s why we use German engineering to create the highest quality thermal management components to protect your designs from anything Mother Nature throws at it. We’ve been pioneering Thermal Management for over 40 years now. With STEGO parts installed, you can rest easy that your complex design is reliably protected for the long haul.
