Projects

The largest project being currently implemented by APANET Green System Ltd is a smart, street lighting system. The company uses its extensive LonWorks technology experience and global examples of practical SmartStreetLighting concept implementation in order to build its own complete solution for street lighting management and control system. The system enables:

  • control of individual street lamps, manual or automatic switching lamps on or off and the function to reduce their power,

  • lamp clustering according to specific requirements and setting various control algorithms for different lamp groups; when the same installation is used to power both estate streets and busier roads there are different energy saving rules set to ensure the roads are lit according to standards and regulations,

  • calculating electricity consumption for individual lamps, groups of lamps or additional equipment powered by the same power source, e.g. Christmas lights,

  • street lamps operation monitoring, in the event of a malfunction the system can notify an operator or service teams of the need for intervention e.g. by sending a text message,

  • detection of an unauthorized lamp housing opening including notification of appropriate services.

EU regulations and growing expectations regarding power consumption rationalization for street and squares lighting as well as declarations of CO2 emission reduction will make implementation of lighting control systems a necessity in the near future. Such systems allow a significant reduction in power consumption and therefore contribute to substantial savings – currently working installation in Oslo confirms savings of up to 70%. A very important factor in using such systems is that they can be easily implemented within existing lighting installations. Communication between Smart Lighting modules uses power lines connected to street lamps (LonWorks Power Line Communication, in short PLC) therefore installation does not require additional workload associated with laying cables to connect individual lamps. In many cases this would be difficult and would involve planning and construction works and very often could even prove impossible.
