Remote Lighting Management

The geographic distribution of street lights makes them difficult and expensive to manage. Our solution enables control of thousands of street lights from one Central Management System Control is achieved through GSM/GPRS or TCP/IP technology, which is both efficient and proven at scale. Street lights consume up to 35% of a cities energy budget and emits tonnes of CO2. Managing street lights enables control programs to switch lights off/on. These predictable cost savings lead to a fast return on investment and reduce carbon dioxide emissions substantially. The system provides detailed information from all street lights, which aids operations and greatly reduce maintenance costs, by removing the need for service visits and patrolling.

 

 

 

 

Power Theft Detection

 

In India electricity theft leads to annual losses estimated at US$4.5 billion, about 1.5% of GDP. Who are the losers? Honest consumers, poor people, and those without connections, who bear the burden of high tariffs, system inefficiencies, and inadequate and unreliable power supply.

 

 

Detection of Lamp Burnout

Immediately notifies the concerned authorities when a lamp burns out, so that, it can be replaced quickly without causing much inconvenience to the public.

 

 

 

 

Individual Lamp Control

Control and manage each lamp individually, and receive reports on its functioning and status as well.

 

 

 

Fast Fault Detection

Alerts on changes in voltage or other electricity related problems are received more quickly helping to provide the higher street lighting quality.

 

 

Precise Lighting Turn ON/OFF

Lamp turning on/off is precise, the lighting is used effectively. Turning lights on/off in accordance with the solar cycle, it is possible to save up to 10%.

 

 

Light Intensity Control (Dimming)

Streetlights are important civic assets that consume approximately 40% of a municipality’s energy budget. Most streetlights use older, less energy-efficient lamp technology such as high-pressure sodium or mercury vapor lamps. Also, they are not networked devices. Consequently, these lights cannot be dimmed or switched on/off remotely as conditions warrant. They cannot be programed to respond to weather or other demand cycles. Furthermore, the street light operator can learn about street light failures only when a resident reports the outage or a mobile crew discovers the problem. Streetlights typically run for an average of 12 hours a day at full intensity. Numerous studies (validated through deployments) have shown that networked control of these street lights will lead to up to 30% reduction in energy consumption, resulting from remote dimming, and reduced runtime. Replacing these streetlights with non-networked LED luminaires enables energy savings of 45-55% due to inherent efficiencies of LEDs. Replacing existing streetlights with networked LED luminaires enables the greatest energy savings – up to 65% from a combination of energy efficient LEDs, remote dimming and Constant Light Output. Constant Light Output compensates for LEDs that initially run brighter and then slowly degrade in lumen output to 70% of initial brightness at the end of their practical life. CLO allows operators to reduce the brightness initially by dimming 30%, with subsequent reduction in dimming profile as the light degrades over time, thereby maintain a constant luminosity over the life of the LED.

 

 

Current Leakage Detection

In any electrical installation, some current will flow through the protective ground conductor to ground. This is usually called leakage current. Leakage current most commonly flows in the insulation surrounding conductors and in the filters protecting electronic equipment around the home or office. So what's the problem? On circuits protected by GFCIs (Ground Fault Current Interrupters), leakage current can cause unnecessary and intermittent tripping. In extreme cases, it can cause a rise in voltage on accessible conductive parts. The causes of leakage current: Insulation has both electrical resistance and capacitance – and it conducts current through both paths. Given the high resistance of insulation, very little current should actually leak. But -- if the insulation is old or damaged, the resistance is lower and substantial current may flow. Additionally, longer conductors have a higher capacitance, causing more leakage current. That's why GFCI breaker manufacturers recommend one-way feeder length be limited to 250 feet, maximum. Electronic equipment, meanwhile, contains filters designed to protect against voltage surges and other disruptions. These filters typically have capacitors on the input, which adds to the overall capacitance of the wiring system and the overall level of leakage current.
