Our test site in the “Smartzone” of Antwerp consists of 3 small, urban streets.
For controlling 13 luminaries, our customer placed 13 SLN-G3 and 1 SLC-G3 Smartnodes products.
The site is illuminated during the night according to the “Light Bubble” strategy.
The low dimming value of 25% is increased to 75% when traffic (both cars and pedestrians) is detected.
A sound measuring device on the site which will, in time, control the light levels based on the ambient sound levels.
The site now also has an Air Quality sensor which will measure the temperature, air moisture levels and air quality of the area.
The city of Helmond has got C0² reduction and preventive measures to reduce global warming as main priorities on its agenda. Therefore they looked for the most performing technology to achieve those goals. After careful deliberation, they chose Smartnodes as the most appropriate technology in this residential area.
This new installation consists of 8 luminous points fit with SmartNodes units. This new installation is in fact a path for pedestrians/cyclists. A maximum energy saving is obtained on the part of the site fit with SmartNodes units. Indeed, the path is only lit when there is a pedestrian or a cyclist on it. When there is nobody on the path, the light remains off.
The city of Hotton explores with this project the possibilities to reduce their energy bill and ecological footprint. It is the first step in their ambition to become a true eco-friendly city.
