|Echelon and Tanko Lighting Partner to Bring Smart City Applications to Rancho Cucamonga via Connected Streetlighting|
Echelon, in partnership with contractor Tanko Lighting, is providing a solution including Top900TLX wireless lighting controllers, base stations and the LumInsight® Central Management System (CMS), which will give the city many new advantages beyond just the energy and cost savings. With the new intelligent Echelon controllers and CMS, the city will have vastly improved control over the streetlights, as well as automated monitoring and reporting for the first time. Automated monitoring offers real time visibility into conditions of the lights thereby reducing maintenance costs by minimizing the need to have workers visually inspect the lights to see if they are not functioning, and improving maintenance effectiveness by enabling quicker replacement of lights that are not working. Automated reporting provides detailed information on energy use down to the individual light. These advantages will be especially beneficial for
Echelon's lighting control system helps lower electric costs beyond the savings enabled by LEDs alone, by allowing intelligent control of light levels. For example, instead of running lights at full intensity at dusk and dawn, the lights can automatically brighten or dim based on ambient light levels. Similarly, light levels can be increased or decreased as needed based on time of day, day of week or month, scheduled events, or neighborhood needs. Echelon's controls enable these capabilities on a per light, per street, neighborhood, or whole city level.
"Our technology is paving the way for smart cities to improve safety and quality of life, while achieving energy efficiency and sustainability goals," said
