The newly launched Philips DigiStreet range of road and street lighting luminaires are designed using the latest LED lighting technology which typically brings energy savings of around 40% compared to conventional street lighting. It comes in a range of forms and optics. Each luminaire’s specification is uniquely identified via the QR code on the Philips Service tag, enabling smartphone access for easy commissioning and maintenance information.
Philips DigiStreet luminaire is equipped with the option to connect the street light. A socket on top of the luminaire enables a Philips CityTouch connector node to be added. This plug-and-play node enables wireless connection to the Philips CityTouch street lighting management system. With this upgrade, the street light can be monitored, controlled and managed remotely. Typically, this provides an additional 30% energy saving on top of the 40% saving achieved by switching to LED. Philips
The luminaire is also “sensor ready.’’ It comes with a universal socket on the bottom of the luminaire which enables a sensor to be added. Sensor applications could include a motion detector so that light is dimmed when no-one is around; parking sensors to monitor the availability of parking slots on the road; sensors to monitor traffic density, air quality, etc. Already built into Philips DigiStreet luminaires is the Philips Xitanium Sensor Ready Driver which enables a wide variety of sensors to work when connected with the luminaire.
