B. TECHNOLOGY ABSORPTION:
The technology focus for the Company has been on process improvement for betterquality lower cost new product development and import substitution. Some of theinitiatives were:
1 . Anti dust ceiling fan with a special coating was developed which helps todrastically reduce the deposition of dust on the fan.
2. Research in pump hydraulics using software for design and CFD (Computational FluidDynamics) simulations helped in developing 5 Star rated products with high energyefficiency over conventionally designed products.
3. In-house CFD analysis capability has been developed in pumps which enables topredict fluid flow and heat transfer. This has reduced the design cycle by eliminatingmultiple prototype testing.
4. Anti rust Cathode Electro Deposition (CED) coating implemented in many of thesubmersible pumps which helps in keeping the pump rust free for longer time with increasedreliability of the product. The Company has plans to introduce this feature in many moreproducts.
5. "Controlite" a product for office conference rooms was enhanced by addingBlue Tooth Low Energy ("BLE") connectivity. This allows the customer to operateand select lighting modes through mobile phones.
6. The office lighting product was improved by providing in-built occupancy sensorthus removing the need for an external sensor unit. This saves cost space and reducesinstallation complexity.
7. New product series in luminaires were introduced with high performance thermaloptics and electronics.
8. introduced new solid mercury (Hg) pill dosing technology to reduce the mercurycontent in fluorescent tubelights in line with "Restriction of HazardousSubstances" norms.
9. introduced T-8 glass LED tubelight with state of art technology which saves morethan 50% energy and the life of this lamp is nearly 5 times of the conventional tubelight.
