Here we answer the most important questions regarding the system’s compatibility and deployment issues.

How long does it take until actually noticing the energy saving?

After installing the first Remote Terminal Unit (operating maximum 250 street lighting fixtures), you can start using the system and benefit from the savings immediately. Energy costs are immediately reduced by up to 35% for the afferent lights through intelligent on/off switching, targeted progressive dimming and overall efficient management of the consumption.

How much time does it take to implement a pilot project?

The actual pilot implementation can take 4-8 weeks, depending on the local deployment conditions. But you need to take into consideration that we can deploy a pilot project only after the technical and compatibility assessment process and inteliLIGHT® business proposal (technical solution, budget and deployment timeline) are finished and approved. Please see more details about this issue in our Get Started section.

Can we implement a pilot project?

Once we agree upon all the data regarding the project and prepare the technical and financial proposal, you can choose from an advanced functionality demonstration or a pilot project deployment. For the pilot project, we implement the planned adaptations to the technical and software solutions and we deploy the pilot project together with our local implementation partner, so you can validate the system and its outcomes by yourself.

What kind of civil works are required when implementing inteliLIGHT®?

There are no civil works needed for inteliLIGHT®. We use your existing lighting grid for communications and energy supply, we adapt to any IP-based communication solution available in the area and we install our controllers and communication devices on the existing infrastructure of lighting fixtures and distribution cabinets.

How do the lamp controllers communicate with the equipment in the distribution cabinets and the mainframe?

inteliLIGHT® controllers are mounted inside or outside the street lighting fixtures, while the communication devices are placed inside the power supply cabinets. inteliLIGHT® communicates using PLC (Power Line Communication) or RF communication between the lamps and the power supply cabinets and using any IP-based communication solution available between the cabinets and the management software. The built-in advanced signal repeating mechanisms make it possible to communicate securely even over the largest street lighting networks.

Do I need to replace any of the street lamps or their components in order to implement the inteliLIGHT® system?

You don’t have to change any components in order to successfully implement inteliLIGHT®. The system is able to manage and monitor any luminary in street lighting installations, even decorative and architectural lighting. Our controllers successfully manage all LED and high intensity discharge lamps available on the market (HID – mercury vapor lamps, metal halide lamps and sodium lamps), using either magnetic or electronic ballasts. Our solution can be therefore easily embedded and adapts immediately to your existing infrastructure of cables, poles, ballasts and light bulbs.

Do I need to implement the whole inteliLIGHT® system at once all around the city?

We can start setting up inteliLIGHT® anywhere in the city, and continue as your priorities dictate. It’s not necessary to install the whole city at once, nor to have any continuity between the managed street lighting segments. The system will function immediately after installing the first Remote Terminal Unit and the assigned controllers, and we can plan the installation schedule according to your priorities and budget availability.

What is the maximum number of lamps that you can manage through inteliLIGHT®?

inteliLIGHT® is prepared to manage a virtually unlimited number of lamps or other devices along the street lighting grid. Due to our advanced communication solution and repeating mechanisms, we can operate the system in practically any environment, regardless of the lighting infrastructure’s dimensions. Also, the inteliLIGHT® StreetLight Control Enterprise version of our software can efficiently manage any large agglomeration or metropolis, being more adaptable and scalable than ever.
