CONEC in Mecca
CONEC connectors as part of
a unique LED illumination system
CONEC D-SUB connectors control 2 million LED lamps
The Abraj Al Bait Towers in Mekka is the second
highest building complex in the world.
As of 2014, the adjacent Mecca Royal Clock Tower Hotel
will provide accommodation for 28,000 visitors.
Every year, two million pilgrims visit the al-Haram Mosque
situated at the foot of the towers to see the holy black
stone Kaaba.
At a height of approx. 425 m, 2 million LED lights show
the pilgrims the time and prayers on four enormous clock
faces and additional media walls.
For 5 years of development, Bartenbach LichtLabor planned
the illumination system for the largest clocks and the media
facades of the Abraj Al Bait Towers.
With its high quality D-SUB Combination connectors with
high-power and signal contacts, CONEC participates in this
gigantic project. The connectors ensure control and energy
supply of the LEDs.
