At LV Energy Systems our goal is not to be the installer of the system. However in the begining we have been faced with proving that the tech works therefore have installed many systems in order to achieve the proof of concept phase. But in doing so we have been able to continously improve the […]
The OOC is the newsest addition to the Luminetworx™ Lighting control system which is power by Olympus™. How does the OOC work? What is it for? The OOC is used for advanced lighting controls and B.A.S integration. It is a micro server used for local control of devices, PoE Lights, BMS, FACP, HVAC, PoE Smart […]
This will vary depending on project size, geographical location, type of installation, project needs, etc. It is important to evaluate any connected lighting project with not only energy savings potential but also installation labor and material costs. We have done plenty of financial modeling for projects internationally for more information on calculating ROI for your […]
Ideally yes, a separate network would be best or at least a separate VLAN. But here is the important thing to remeber the Luminetworx™ PoE Lighting systems does not require you to do so. We have clients that have networks designed as in the example above and flat networks. Luminetworx™ does not have an issue […]
Yes, any existing street light can be converted to a fully functional Luminetworx™ powered smart pole. However many factors will require some additional engineering in order for this to happen. For example we can’t just install a regular PoE switch, depending on power already at the pole you will need a specialized PoE switch to […]
IT infrastructure, does PoE lighting increase the cost of the IT infrastructure maintenance, cooling, dedicated space?
That questions depends on how you intend to install the Luminetworx PoE lighting system. If you use a centralized model then yes it will take up more space in the IT room the PoE switches do not put out much heat so minimal additional cooling is needed. IF you use a distributed model then the […]
Well, we have several layers of redundancy built into the PoE lighting system. Some are best practices to perform during the installation while others where built in while the system was being designed. Let’s start with power redundancy, This can easily be accomplished with the use of an inverter or even a UPS with battery […]
NFPA 70 requires dedicated circuits in the installation of emergency lighting systems. How do you accomplish this with PoE?
We use a completely separate PoE switch connected to a UL924 inverter to deliver an isolated emergency lighting system.
That is a great question and a complicated and yet simple one to answer. LV Energy Systems is capable of installing lighting up to 2000′ from the PoE switch. Now most will say this impossible and if you were talking about traditional high voltage lighting then yes. But here is what happens as you try […]
Yes, at LV Energy Systems we have PoE fixtures for all needs. Some of the lights we manufacture include, emergency lighting, commercial lighting, residential lighting, high bay lighting, outdoor lighting and many many more. So Luminetwork is suitable for an entire lighting infrastructure in spaces ranging from residential, commercial, entertainment, hospitality and many others.
