Eliminate Over-Lighted Roadways & Save Energy With Dimmable LED Streetlight Systems

September 15, 2009

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ — Strategic Telemetry and XUS Corporation announce the first electrical lighting and management system (ELMS) to offer adaptive light level control for LED roadway lighting. Compliant with Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) standard NTCIP 1213, this technology offers dynamic remote control and monitoring of lighting, power metering and ground-fault detection safety equipment.

Jim Frazer, Strategic Telemetry’s COO states, “Roadway lighting designers typically select components that deliver the required minimum level of light at the fixture’s end of life. As light output degrades significantly over the fixture’s life, up to 30% of this light output and resultant energy use is simply not required. Using Strategic Telemetry’s adaptive lighting system with dimmable XUS fixtures, light output can be reduced at time of installation, and increased automatically as the fixture ages. Using this technology allows luminaires to emit a constant amount of light, meeting the required levels over the entire installed life of the fixture, without over-lighting or excessive energy usage.”

Bob Gray, CEO of XUS Corporation adds, “By providing “fixture-ready intelligence”, and dimming using either a centralized control communication interface or independent fixture control, this product provides extended lifetime expectancy, and optimum light output. Together with Strategic Telemetry, the “XDRIVE(TM)” roadway light provides a seamless interface with ITS compliant software. The integrity of the communication link is solidified by using Echelon Corporation’s LonWorks(R) network control technologies. Compliance with ITS standards allows data backhaul over the nation’s ITS network and enables control, monitoring and diagnostics previously unimaginable to the street and roadway lighting marketplace.”
