Upgrading of streetlights: Traditional lighting with a single function and high energy consumption
At present, China’s urban lighting control is relatively simple, crude, and backward, with low quality of service and energy-saving level, which is difficult to meet the needs of modern urban lighting and does not meet the keynote of the new innovative city development, urban lighting services are facing the dual challenges of exemplary management and energy saving and emission reduction.
Street lighting is an essential public infrastructure in urban lighting, with the continuous development of economic and social and social parties to the rising demand for urban public lighting, street lighting is not only limited to providing basic lighting functions but also developed into the entrance to the smart city, bearing the perception of everything, the collection, and transmission of information and data, the carrier of multiple resources, etc…
The main problems with traditional lighting methods are as follows.
- 1. Backward control method
Most lighting control methods are simple, mostly manual switches or rely on decentralized independent time control, switching light error is large, can not achieve unified centralized control, and it is difficult to cope with the special lighting needs of unexpected events.
- 2. Low operation and maintenance efficiency, high operation and maintenance costs
The fault checking method is mainly manual inspection, which requires a high cost of manpower and material time, and is prone to problems such as untimely fault detection and processing, and the existence of blind inspection areas.
- 3. It is difficult to guarantee the safety of facilities
Mainly rely on manual offline supervision, can not do the real-time supervision of lighting cables and other facilities and equipment. In the event of theft or damage, etc., will not only cause direct loss of economic interests for the enterprise management-related departments, but will also affect the normal operation of urban lighting, but also may bring security risks to the public.
- 4. energy saving and emission reduction are not enough
Can not achieve “on-demand lighting, green lighting”, does not meet the “energy saving, green” development concept, energy saving efforts to be improved.
- 5. the lack of information technology wisdom management means
Facility construction resources for a number of unclear, unknown states, it is difficult to achieve active learning services for students, to protect the quality of lighting.
Significant implications of the energy-saving retrofit of streetlights.
- 1、Management improvement, guarantee service
Realization of urban lighting refinement monitoring and management, the tedious and complex work simplification, process; through analysis and prediction, to achieve real prior foreknowledge, eliminate safety hazards; according to the level of failure to start different disposal processes, collaborative office, effectively improve the efficiency of enterprise management technology, effectively guarantee the quality of the lighting system operating environment and service development level.
- 2、Oriented maintenance, reduce costs and increase efficiency
Through the real-time system comprehensive “online patrol” instead of manual inspection, hotline repair operation and maintenance, directional maintenance facilities and equipment, improve the efficiency of operation and maintenance personnel, significantly shorten the operation and maintenance response time, reduce operation and maintenance costs.
- 3、On-demand lighting, energy saving, and emission reduction
Under the premise of ensuring the quality of lighting, the use of LED lighting energy-saving lamp sources and precise energy-saving management means, the development of the responsive dimming strategy to truly achieve on-demand lighting, green lighting, deepen energy saving and emission reduction, to contribute to the construction of a beautiful city, help solve environmental pollution.
- 4、Improve the image, improve the habitat
Make the city’s night management level and the modern city adapt to improve the overall image of the city; reflect and improve the level of government public services, and promote the development of the night economy.
- 5、Intelligent perception, intelligent development
To provide information access points for the smart city, urban big data monitoring collection, and transmission, and other services to accelerate the pace of urban wisdom development.
- 6、”Four new” activation of new dynamic energy
Actively explore the application of Internet of things technology, attract the upstream and downstream enterprises of the Internet of things industry chain in the local application promotion and incubation business, drive the local traditional manufacturing enterprises to manufacture intelligent transformation and upgrading, and vigorously develop new industries, new industries, new models, help to achieve industrialization, industrial intelligence, wisdom to lead the creation of high-end brands, activating new momentum of social and economic development.
Street lights are widely distributed, distributed in large numbers, and distributed in deep locations. In the wave of smart city construction, make full use of the resource advantages of street light facilities, adopt technologies such as the Internet of Things, big data, cloud computing, and single light control to build urban smart lighting, solve urban lighting service pain points, promote urban lighting management upgrade, and promote energy saving and emission reduction.
