Installed in the LED street lightings in the Cyberpark Kozhikode campus is, for the first time in the country, a Tele-Management System that enables one to monitor, control, meter, and manage the lighting through static IP. The system allows each individual light point to be switched on or off or dimmed at any time. It also enables you to save a large amount of energy through the effective utilization of dimming mechanism to reduce the consumption of power.
At Cyberpark, the output of the lights has been set to 60% on Sundays and 100% from 06:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. and 60% from 10:00 p.m. to 06:00 a.m. on other days.
On the technical side, a segment controller (SeCo) is the master control of all the LEDs and an inbuilt astronomical clock will switch the lights on in the evening and switch them off in the morning even if there is no response from the segment controller.
Owlet Nightshift is the tele-management system of the German-based Schreder lighting solutions. The whole project costs around Rs. 1.19 crore.
