CIMCON Lighting Raises the Bar for Energy Efficiency and Higher Productivity with the Release of its Next-Generation LightingGale™ Management Software for Outdoor Lighting Controls
Maximize Energy and Maintenance Cost Savings with Advanced Scheduling Tools and Health Monitoring
Boston, Massachusetts – January 8, 2013: CIMCON Lighting, Inc., the world’s leading provider of intelligent, centralized Wireless Outdoor Lighting Management systems, today announced the release of its next generation LightingGale™ Management Software. CIMCON Lighting’s wireless outdoor lighting management systems are available for Traditional, LED and Solar-based LED Street Lights; and can be utilized in a wide variety of outdoor applications, including but not limited to: Street Lights, Roadway Lighting, Area Lighting, Parking Lots, and Industrial Operations.
As energy and maintenance costs continue to increase, taking control of outdoor lighting costs while keeping lights turned ON and ensuring that the right amount of lighting is provided where it is needed and when it is needed is vitally important. LightingGale, through its “Advanced Scheduling” capabilities provides the tools necessary to implement advanced dimming and ON/OFF control strategies to provide energy savings of up to 30% for new LED Luminaries, and up to 50% for Traditional Luminaries.
“We provide our customers with the tools necessary to allow them to implement the night-time dimming and ON/OFF strategy that is right for their outdoor lighting operation and provides them with the expected energy cost savings,” said Neil Peterson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, at CIMCON Lighting. “LightingGale also provides a full set of dashboards and reports to substantiate the cost savings through our revenue grade power metering capabilities that are built into each SLC lighting control unit.”
Cost savings can also be attained through LightingGale’s “Health Monitoring” and “One-Trip” Maintenance Repair capabilities, which enables lighting maintenance costs to be reduced by at least 50% through the effective notification of failures. Using advanced algorithms and the latest advances in RF-Wireless and GPRS / GSM technology, LightingGale automatically sends a repair order via email and/or text message with the exact failure details and the parts needed to make the repair, directly to the person responsible for that light fixture. LightingGale's “Predictive Failure” feature identifies other lamps that are near end of life, thus allowing the maintenance team to replace them while they are in the area, further reducing maintenance costs.
The new release of LightingGale Management software allows outdoor lighting operators to more efficiently manage their lighting systems to reduce energy and operating costs. LightingGale’s powerful new features meet the needs of cities, towns, universities, parking facilities, utilities and industrial operations to maximize the efficiencies of their outdoor lighting systems.
Key upgrades and new features of the LightingGale Management Software include:
|•||Improved Tools for Energy Savings: Added advanced scheduling and grouping capabilities to support concurrent Astro clock and motion-based schedule control for nightly ON/OFF and Dimming control of outdoor lighting fixtures.|
|•||Strengthened Street Light Health Monitoring and Fault Notification Capabilities: Automatic detection and reporting of cycling lamps, fault conditions, or malfunctioning equipment (including lamp burn outs, driver failure, over/under voltage, abnormal power consumption, low power factor, communication failure, and other unforeseen issues) and reporting of voltage, current, power factor, and energy consumption data.|
|•||Extended Asset Management: LightingGale’s existing object based asset management functionality has been further extended to allow "One Trip" repair for all types of lighting fixtures.|
|•||Expanded Google Map Integration: The existing Google Map Integration has been expanded to allow easier grouping of lighting nodes, easier location of faulty fixtures, the ability to track network performance, easier navigation and several other features that allow operators unparalleled management capabilities and ease of use right out-of-the-box with little or no training.|
