The Opportunity

Lighting Solutions were presented with the opportunity to create a smart lighting system using their key skills in project management and design & construction. The team needed to replace an aging carpark and access road lighting at the O’Sullivan Beach Boat Ramp and would investigate, implement & install an Intelligent street lighting system whilst managing the end to end process. Deliverables consisted of a detailed Philips Systems – City Touch Lighting Management System.

The Solution

This street lighting project evolved to become first of its kind in Australia using this type of system. This system had full automation and control and allowed real time and historical data to be interrogated at any time via an internet web browser. The system also allowed the street lights to be dimmed to varying levels during the night (dimming profile). Work completed included;

  • Installation of 19 x 10.5m light columns
  • Installation of 19 x rag bolt assemblies
  • Installation of 29 x 133w LED luminaires
  • Design build & retro fitting (after initial install) of 29 wireless outdoor luminaire controllers (OLC)
  • Design & build of segment controller including 1 x RF antenna & 1 x Router antenna

The project complexities consisted of removal of existing 11 x weather damaged light columns. Reconfiguring of existing wiring to facilitate the installation of 8 additional light columns. Outdoor segment controller design & build. These had to be retrofitted to the street light columns after installation.

Design & build of segment controller was also a challenge, with installation of the router to allow access to the lighting system via an internet browser.
