C2 SmartLight at Bright Baana on September 24–27th

The year 2015 was nominated by the UN as the international Year of Light. The Year of Light highlights the  benefits to humanity offered by the fields of science that utilize light and their applications. The purpose of the event is to gather experiences on the use of new, energy-efficient lighting solutions and their effect on the sense of comfort and safety.

C2 SmartLight Lighting Control Solution is used in controlling the lighting in the pedestrian pathway tunnel in Arkadiankatu street, and in the pedestrian pathway from Mannerheimintie street to Arkadaiankatu street. The lighting adjusts itself according to the amount of traffic in the pathway.

Baana, completed in 2012, opened up a cycling and pedestrian route from the West Harbour to the city centre, when the railway traffic was stopped on the old port tracks, built a hundred years earlier. In some places, Baana is a dramatic canyon, lined by steep cliff walls, and in other places it is a lively “living room” for the youth or a park-like embankment. The pedestrian and cycling corridor, which was built into a former railway canyon, was awarded as a commercial-free public space in the European Prize for Urban Public Space competition in 2014, from among nearly 200 European cities.

Bright Baana is open to all public. Welcome to see the world of smart lighting!

C2 SmartLight replaces PLC technology with radio connection

Since June 1st, 2015 C2 SmartLight LuconT controllers and LuconC base station no longer support the PLC  (Power Line Communication) technology.

C2 SmartLight delivered the first luminary control system using PCL four years ago. Regardless of the ongoing product development, the PLC did not provide the level required for luminaire specific controlling. The problems have arisen with grid redundancy and different kinds of disturbances in the network.

The data transfer rate of PLC is too slow for controlling and managing LED street lights. Additionally, the current sensor systems (luminance measurement, motion sensors, and e.g. smart push-button control) cannot be dependent on power line cables, thus all C2 SmartLight sensors are wireless.

All C2 SmartLight controllers, such as Lucont and SmartLumo, and LuconC base station operate via fast and wireless radio connection (256 Kbit/s, ZigBee protocol).

C2 SmartLight solution is presented at Vantaa Housing Fair

On June 10th, with the opening of Vantaa Housing Fair, C2 SmartLight presents a new method to control lighting by a wireless push-button. A motion sensor is not an effective solution for playgrounds and sport areas, where people passing by may trigger the lighting at a time when it is not needed. The wireless push-button for switching the lighting on was designed in a close collaboration with our customers. Now everyone can switch the lights on on a playground – and only when the lighting is needed– without additional costs in maintenance, cabling or data communication.

The lighting solution can be tested at the Vantaa Housing Fair in Kvartsijuonenpuisto playground. There is a push-button at the entrance of the playground, and when pressed, the dimmed LED luminaires bright up. The LED luminaires are integrated with wireless C2 SmartLumo controllers, which allow users to setup effective schedules and monitor individual luminaires.

During the period of Housing Fair, the lighting is set to 10% of the luminaires’ power. By pressing the push-button, the lighting increases to full power for 1 minute, after which the luminaires are dimmed to 30% of power for 30 seconds. The luminaires return to pre-defined 10% as a default. Every visitor has a possibility to test the lighting control.

Performance of LED-luminaires in Jyväskylä

The “dancing” performance of the luminaires was designed in the city center of Jyväskylä in order to present the functional possiblities of LED luminaires. The benefits of their implementation was enhanced by addition of luminaire specific controller designed by C2SmartLight Oy.

The device was designed to enable the efficient control over luminaires by introducing such functions as wireless communication, energy consumption measurement and dimming. The luminaire specific controller is installed inside the pole of each luminaire and can be easily accessed by opening the service door of the pole. The control parameters are set via wireless network to each luminaire specific controller from control center.

The presented LED luminaires with total output of 122W were dimmed according to smart energy saving mode. For example, the pedestrian crossings are lighted with the output of 74W, while the areas between them are lighted with output of 61W. Despite the difference, the comfortable level of luminance is maintained for citizens.
