In 2004 BGB purchased the commercial interests of another Grantham company - Aquabeam Ltd, manufacturers of Aquaculture products. This acquisition expanded the Company's product portfolio into the field of underwater lighting, camera systems and cables/connectors. Primary applications include cage illuminators for photoperiod manipulation within fish farming (Aquaculture), underwater lighting for the energy and water treatment industries and lighting for marinas and the maritime sector.
Through this division, BGB engineers have developed Digilinc, a wireless Ethernet bridge which enables high speed data or video links to be transmitted across distances of up to 20km with line of sight. Applications for Digilinc include wireless CCTV and remote security and monitoring functions.
The range of lighting stems from powerful metal halide lamps through to robust long-lasting LEDs and induction-based systems.
