inteliLIGHT® FRB-110 intelligent communicator

inteliLIGHT® FRB-110 intelligent communicator is the heart of  the REMOTE TERMINAL UNIT, the local intelligence unit integrated within the lighting cabinets.  It ensures:

  • DATA PROCESSING – concentrates and processes the data received from other components (controllers, FPC Data Concentrator, Lonworks PLC® Modem, FNM network analyzer and FVD voltage detector) to be sent to inteliLIGHT® central management software.
  • COMMUNICATION – provides secure connection between street light controllers, RTU elements and central management software.
  • SAFETY – ensures the system functionality in the case of communication failure: managing luminaries in concordance with pre-programmed criteria, saving data logs and the history of events that took place along the grid and synchronizing with the central management software once the connection is re-established.

technical details

  • Works as a part of the inteliLIGHT® street lighting management system.
  • Provides the functions of luminaires even when data connection is down
  • Saves the data log and records history of network events, reports all to the inteliLIGHT® StreetLight Control NMS (save and record features are available locally when communication is down, data is synchronized when the communication is online again)
  • 4 GB MicroSD standard storage capacity
  • Provides real-time data processing of all the information coming from the RTU elements, PLC and/ or RF connected street light controllers and smart city sensors
  • Uses IP-based connectivity based on secure VPN connection with the central management software
  • Allows local user-control interface
  • Coordinates the profiles and the grouping of luminaires, commanding them in concordance with their respective criteria
  • Supports multiple redundant backhaul connections
  • Detects cable cut error when the network is powered with software intelligence
  • Designed to be installed inside the inteliLIGHT® Remote Terminal Unit
