CIMCON Lighting Announces Immediate Support for 0.5% Accuracy Class Energy Metering for Its iSLC Series of Wireless Lighting Controllers
September 4, 2014 - Boston, MA: CIMCON Lighting, Inc., the world’s leading provider of intelligent, web-based Wireless Outdoor Lighting Management Systems, today announced the availability of its new line of iSLC series Lighting Controllers with support for 0.5% accuracy class energy metering for customers requiring revenue grade accuracy. This was achieved after successful completion of rigorous testing to meet the IEC:62053-22-2003 and IEC:62052-11-2003 standards accuracy requirements.
The testing methodology included tests for Ambient Temperature Variation, Voltage and Frequency Variation, Current Variation, Power Consumption and Self-Heating. All tests were completed within a tolerance of less than 0.5% and indicate performance suitable for revenue grade energy metering.
“We are excited to offer our utility and municipality customers wireless lighting controllers that allow them to meter power being consumed by streetlights with accuracy that meets or exceeds the requirements of 0.5% Class meters. We believe this will encourage utilities to accept power consumption data from our controllers and bill based on actual usage rather than a fixed number based on the wattage of the lamp. This in turn will encourage customers to implement innovative energy saving strategies, thereby accelerating adoption of wireless controls. ” said Anil Agrawal, Director, CIMCON Lighting, Inc.
