If you want to ask what is the largest and densest infrastructure in a city, the answer must be street lamps. It is for this reason that street lamps have become a natural carrier of sensors and a source of networked information collection in the construction of future smart cities. In a sense, a smart solar street lamp that has undergone intelligent upgrading is an important entrance to a smart city.
Smart solar street lights make cities more energy efficient
Lighting has always been a “big user” in the city, accounting for almost 1/4 of the total electricity consumption. The energy consumption of street lamps can be described as “contributing” (National Bureau of Statistics data shows that China’s power generation in 2015 was 5.618 Trillion kilowatt-hours, road lighting electricity consumption accounts for 9%, about 505.6 billion kilowatt-hours). How to achieve energy saving and environmental protection under the premise of ensuring lighting needs is a problem that any enterprise that provides city-level lighting equipment and solutions is very concerned about.
In the past few years, the more common measure for enterprises is to replace traditional sodium lamps with more energy-saving LED lamps, and has achieved remarkable results. However, with the continuous expansion of the city scale, the number of street lights continues to increase, except the street light, the led flood light, led parking lot lights is also increasing fast. In addition to replacing the lamps themselves, can this problem be better solved from the system level? Therefore, the intelligent lighting control system came into being, which can further achieve secondary energy saving on the basis of LED lamps.
It turned out that the traditional street lighting system mainly relies on manpower to adjust the lights, and the intelligent lighting system can realize remote single or multiple light switch, dimming, remote control based on environmental sensing data or terminal equipment control center software. Control of monitoring etc. In other words, the intelligent lighting control system in a smart city can dim and control street lights according to time period, weather, or other needs, thereby avoiding unnecessary waste of energy.
Smart solar street lights make maintenance more convenient
The existence of street lights guarantees the vision of pedestrians and vehicles in dark environments and when driving at night, so once a failure occurs, it must be promptly maintained.
Now, as long as the operation and maintenance personnel sit in front of the display screen of the management center or hold a mobile device, they can always know where the street lights need to be maintained, and they will no longer be inefficient and blind.
Smart street lights, not just street lights
The intelligent solar street lamp system not only completes the function of lighting, but also realizes remote centralized control and management of street lamps (with automatic setting of brightness according to traffic flow, time, weather conditions and other conditions, remote lighting control, active fault alarm, remote meter reading Etc.), it also provides a natural basic network as an important bearer of the smart city sensor network, connecting various smart sensors to form the urban Internet of Things.
The combination of street lighting equipment and Internet of Things, wireless communication technology and other technological methods are used to enhance the ability to respond to urban public management, safety and emergencies, which will bring more possibilities to the construction of smart cities.
Smart solar street lights is working stand-alone, no need join to grid power
The smart solar street light management system is a wireless system boasting simple installation and convenient maintenance, aimed at solving problems of the conventional solar street light management systems, such as inconvenience, high maintenance cost, etc. The system for solar street lights consists of a solar street light system management center, intelligent terminal, GPRS base station, remote concentrators, wireless remote-control street light controllers and wireless terminal modules.
The solar street light system management center connects to the intelligent terminal and GPRS base station respectively via wireless network, and the GPRS base station connects to multiple remote concentrators via the GPRS network, then the remote concentrators connect to multiple wireless remote-control street light controllers through multiple wireless terminal modules.
The smart wireless control system for solar street lights employs Internet-of-things and wireless communication technologies, not only providing different control options including manual control, time control and light control, but also able to perform dimming, charging and discharging control. Besides, the system can carry out real-time data detection and operation status monitoring and manage the street lights in a centralized manner through the solar street light system management center and wireless modules, thereby realizing remote lighting monitoring, real-time control, intelligent management and energy saving.
