The state of art system (CCMS) from Informage Energy is a centralized web based system to remotely track and control the actual energy consumption of the street lights and take appropriate energy consumption reduction measures through power conditioning and control. The system can be cloud hosted or hosted on premise.
The CCMS system connects seamlessly with our indigenously developed Streetlight Controllers (Single and Three Phase SLC’s).
These advanced programmable SLC’s are capable of surviving in some of the harshest environments and can control groups of LED streetlight’s, depending on the wattage and size of each lamp.
The computer based control station through which the entire area can be monitored & controlled uses advanced GPRS/GSM wireless communication. The control system will switch on-off the lights at required timings by making use of longitude latitude operation and a daily log of energy consumed. Several other parameters, administrative controls, configurations and extensive reporting is built-in.
Wireless Technology – The latest developments in wireless technology and RF/GSM technology to program monitor and control geographically distributed remote streetlights. CCMS shall have a web-server to receive and record all data with time stamping from the streetlight controllers.
Monitor – The groups of street lights are equipped with communication modules and energy monitoring modules which updates the Master Control Station (MCS) as per programmed frequency. GIS Mapping covering all switching points and the details of each switch point Central Control and Monitoring System functionalities . The system monitors all the following from the CCMS unit
- Voltages each phase
- Current each phase
- PF each phase
- Metering kWh cumulative
- Metering kVAh
Control – The street lighting system can be switched on or off based on selected group of light poles and the switching time can be programmed on daily / monthly / yearly basis. The programming can be set as per change in nightfall schedule throughout the year. The system is capable to communicate with any individual switching points or collectively amongst networked switching points for control and monitoring. Records LED luminaries glowing and non-glowing hours of a particular switching point.
Alarm and Notifications – The system can generate and send SMS to the concerned authority on occurrence of any programmed event, tampers with exact time stamping in case of GSM option. In addition, an intuitive notification window on the web browser pops of the alarms and faults occurring in the field.
Fault Monitoring – In case of abnormal situation, the remote terminal unit automatically generates alarm messages and sends them to MCS and pre-designated mobile handsets. In case of GSM option, the message contains detailed data on the fault(s) with exact time stamp. It should register all fault conditions like excess voltage/current drawn, lamps failure, no-power supply, etc. through the instantaneous alert messages sent by the CCMS unit
Burning hours – The burning hours of lamps in group of light pole can be computed with good certainty and maintenance / replacement can be planned accordingly.
Flexible for expansion – The system can easily be expanded to any new area or to remote distance.
Report Generation – The Master Control Station generates various detailed real time reports. It also helps to maintain history of events, Energy Saving report, lamp failure report, Actual Hours of operation, reports can be generated on daily basis
Energy Saving : the system is capable of calculating and showing energy saving accrued by use of LED lights versus similar luminance conventional lights. Reports of daily, weekly, monthly saving are shown on dashboard. Reports such as energy saving report, lamp failure report, actual hours of operation, uptime (%), etc. should be generated on a daily basis from the data/readings received from the CCMS units.
User Management: Different user authorization levels should be settable and the central server should be capable of handling heavy traffic, i.e. the number of LED street lights installed in respective ULBs under this program.
