midiBLUE street lighting control system

The midiBLUE system is designed specifically for road lighting control in rural municipalities that have extensive lighting infrastructure located over a wide area and limited budgets. The system responds to changes in weather to keep residents safe and cities operating at a lower cost. It guarantees optimal switching on and off of street lighting and remote monitoring via a website. The user, after logging in to the www.midiBLUE.pl www.midiBLUE.pl platform, has an overview of the lighting infrastructure of their municipality or city. They can comfortably program the operating parameters of the controllers according to their own preferences, replace the software if necessary, or create and configure their own groups of controllers. This type of solution allows you to tailor the lighting to your actual needs.

System description

The midiBLUE control system consists of: midiBLUE controllers, APC-LED power reducers mounted in each luminaire, and a Central Photocell. All elements of the system are managed by a website that allows remote monitoring and control of street lighting from any mobile device. This solution enables real-time data processing for a large number of lighting cabinets without investing in additional costly infrastructure.

One of the main elements of the system are midiBLUE controllers, which form the system together with the web service when installed in lighting cabinets. The controllers will optimally switch on and off the lighting – the time is taken directly from the world’s most accurate atomic clock. The APC-LED power reducers installed in the LED luminaires can be easily integrated with the midiBLUE system. The solution allows for a temporary reduction of the luminous flux at different levels and directly contributes to reducing electricity bills, CO2 emissions and the period of payback on the new installation. The system allows remote reprogramming of both the range of the two time intervals and the level of reduction.

An indispensable part of the midiBLUE system is the Central Photocell. Connected to a lighting control system, it allows for proper response to sudden weather changes. In case of sudden deterioration of weather conditions lighting will automatically switch on faster providing residents with proper visibility on streets and feeling of safety. On the other hand, during a sunny morning, the lighting will be turned off earlier than scheduled, resulting in additional savings.

All elements of the system are managed by a server. The user can remotely control the operation of even a very extensive lighting infrastructure from anywhere via a website. This has a direct impact on improving the quality of lighting, on the speed of response in emergency situations and on reducing the costs of use and maintenance of the installation. System users are given their login and password. Extensive permission levels mean that the number of users assigned to a single account can be virtually unlimited, and users can be assigned different permission statuses.

With data encryption, the streetlight control software meets the highest security standards.

The midiBLUE system allows the creation of groups of controllers for different localities or neighborhoods, and then easy online configuration of the controllers in each group. With this solution, the local community can have an impact on their own lighting. The controller enables, for example, the deletion of the night break in case of local celebrations or extraordinary situations. This will ensure that the lighting will turn on and off at unusual times and only for the locality that needs it.
There are more and more examples of the implementation the midiBLUE system: Kraków, Głogów, Łódź, Kościan, Stargard, Trzebiechów, Kamieniec Ząbkowicki or Gdynia. A total of over 8 thousand controllers in Poland. The system functionality was appreciated at the Light Trade Fair in Warsaw and the solution was awarded the best product title.
Our proposed solution gives you the opportunity to rationally manage lighting in a way that is both energy efficient and user friendly for public spaces.
