System Components

 

  • The L-RD Unit (Local Tranceiver): is a unit which receives and transmits over specific radio frequencies, information, messages and commands on the current status of the lighting system. The system communicates over light-heads and mobile devices.
  • The L-RDC (Local Tranceiver Coordinator): is a receiver that collects the data from the individual light-heads/groups of light-heads and transmits this information to the control centre; e.g. at City Hall or a service provider facility.
  • CCU (Central Control Unit): The management tool for web access. Utilising a GIS (Geographic Information System) it can address the individual points of light via the Internet. With a user-friendly interface, all anomalies and alarms are in "real time" on an overview map and shown by the points of light. Can be used on mobile devices.

VHF radio traffic

Point-to-Point RADIO communication

 

Communication between light heads and the central control unit takes place via a wireless network. Our patented process utilises FM frequency radio.

 

Each L-RD unit communicates with each other based on the mesh technology and ensures the overall network. When the signal once is lost, it will be automatically reconfigured by a system coordinator. The L-RDC interface forwards all information directly to the control station, which is operated by means of a user-friendly interface:

 

  • No need for a cable network based on the wireless technology
  • Covering the entire urban area
  • Heterogeneous information can be transmitted easily
  • Easy installation and configuration of components, units and groups
  • Analog / digital interface
