Frequently asked questions

STREET LIGHTING CONTROLLERS

Yes. Our timers have automatic time change without any intervention.

Yes, you can. For some of them remotely via Internet e.g.: midiBLUE or via BLUETOOTH e.g.: microBLUE, and for older models as CPA 4.0 controller – on site in RABBIT service. CPAnet, on the other hand, operates based on geographic location.

All timers except CPAnet can be set to use the CPA 4.0 compliant table. They will then work with older timer models.

The timer remembers the settings after a power outage. The timers have an internal battery to maintain memory and stored settings.

STREET LIGHTING CONTROL SYSTEMS

Any device with internet access (smartphone, tablet, laptop, PC) is required to operate midiBLUE and CPAnet systems. The system is managed through any web browser.

The timer remembers the settings. These systems use the settings stored in their memory when communication is lost. The timer will turn the lights on and off according to the saved settings.

CAPACITIVE REACTIVE POWER COMPENSATION

The costly problem of capacitive reactive power in street lighting arises when the lighting infrastructure is equipped only with LED lamps. LED technology is a high-efficiency technology with great savings, but in addition to its many undeniable advantages, it also has its requirements. LED lamps, as opposed to sodium lamps, generate reactive capacitive power, for which the power companies, thanks to smart meters, charge additional fees. Such charges can be avoided by compensating the capacitive reactive power with an appropriate circuit. Compared to traditional street lighting lamps, LED lamps also require a completely different protection system.

It is most beneficial to consider the LED street lighting cabinet at the street lighting design stage. The LED cabinet combines a comprehensive solution in a single enclosure. It provides professional protection and control of modern LED street lighting luminaires and proper compensation of capacitive reactive power. This solution significantly reduces the cost of the entire project.

A properly selected LED compensator with parameters corresponding to the needs of a specific location guarantees reduction of electricity bills - eliminating charges for reactive power. Leaving standard lighting cabinets in the course of modernization entails the need to add to them so-called extensions, and this significantly increases the cost of investment.

Capacitive reactive power compensators have long been used in industry. They are large and expensive. Such compensators are not suitable for street lighting, they are designed for quite different tasks.

Even the best LED lamps on the market produce capacitive reactive power.  This is a feature of electronics.
