What distinguishes an intelligent lighting control system from …?

It should be emphasized that many lighting system suppliers offer a simple solution, which involves replacing outdated bulbs with LEDs. This can mislead customers into believing that their system is now modern and intelligent. However, a comprehensive approach involving design, analysis, and calculations is required for a true modernization of outdated systems. A future intelligent lighting system should include, at a minimum, the following functions:

Algorithms for the Phoenix intelligent lighting system

In the development of the 'Phoenix' intelligent lighting control system, a flexible lighting configuration feature was implemented, allowing the grouping of luminaires and their adjustment based on various parameters, including individual schedules and control scenarios. The system's development was based on years of experience and practice in implementation, which enabled the creation of a complex capable of transforming the city into a modern, digital, and comfortable living space. The continuous improvement of the system's functionality ensures the creation of optimal conditions for the working staff, dispatchers, and other support services.

Street lighting distribution board - Avantgarde-PRO MAX

In the modern infrastructure of intelligent lighting, distribution boards are a key element. They include all the necessary equipment for accounting, management, monitoring, and protection of the equipment. It is the control cabinets that ensure the timely switching on, off, and dimming of the luminaires according to preset schedules and scenes, as well as controlling and transmitting data to the dispatch centre for processing and analysis.

 

Each control cabinet can simultaneously manage the operation of over two hundred luminaires, which can be organized into more than ten different groups. Each of these groups can have its own individual schedule and a specified brightness level set. In addition to this, the system monitors the condition of all the luminaires connected to it for the identification of faults and errors

LEDs: Energy Efficiency and Control in City Lighting

In intelligent lighting systems, the primary component is LED lamps with the capability of control and brightness adjustment. These types of lamps provide not only high energy efficiency but also offer flexibility in lighting management, allowing the level of illumination to be adapted to various needs and situations, thereby contributing to the creation of a more comfortable and safe urban environment.

Please note!

The ability to dim an LED lamp depends on the presence of a special port (0; +10) on the driver. However, even if the driver is equipped with the necessary port, the installation of an additional dimming controller will be required to implement the dimming function.

Benefits of integrating PLC and LoRa into lighting control systems

The use of modern technologies such as Power Line Communication (PLC) and LoRa in intelligent lighting control systems significantly enhances their capabilities and flexibility in topology. This system allows for the creation of a highly efficient, reliable, and adaptive system that can easily scale and adjust to various urban conditions. PLC technology integrates effectively and operates in urban settings where electrical networks are already in place, and it does not require the updating of cable-carrying systems or the laying of additional information cables.

Control and Monitoring Center – A Software and Hardware Complex

The Monitoring Center or dispatch service is a key component in the intelligent lighting control system, representing a complex software and hardware suite that includes industrial servers and switching equipment. The Phoenix software is the central element of the intelligent lighting control system, ensuring efficient interaction of all system components. It allows for flexible management and configuration of the system, which supports more than three thousand control cabinets and over a million luminaires.

 

Most processes in the system are automated, with operators acting as observers, intervening only in critical situations or modifying control algorithms. A flexible reporting system in the form of electricity consumption charts enables quick responses from technical specialists and city services to maintain the lighting system in good condition.
