Challenges
MiTAC was a system integrator for a Taiwanese municipality’s project whose goal is to switch 200 LED street lights locating at four different sites into Smart Lighting among other 8500 street lights replacement in the Taipei City. MiTAC acquired LED light bulbs from Everlight, a leading supplier for LED lights and LED lighting components, and was ready to operate lighting fixture installation. However, MiTAC did not have a complete management system to track the performance of energy saving. It was hard for the company to testify that EverLight’s LED lights could minimize energy wastes and improve efficiency.
Our Solutions
Billion installed one SG7200 Intelligent Powerline Lighting Control Box under individual street light fixtures and deployed one Lighting Segment Controller at every site to measure power consumption. Billion connected four street sites and multiple power loops, delivering signal coverage up to 7km. Billion Smart Outdoor LCMS recorded on-hand energy consumption data according to different times, daylight periods and locations, etc. at four street sites; MiTAC compared the results with the ones that represented finite lamps to measure how much energy were saved. Besides featuring the analysis of power efficiency performance, Billion Smart Outdoor LCMS automatically sent system alarms notifying street light outages directly to MiTAC to speed up the maintenance process and supported remote power control on and off.
 

Benefits
MiTAC successfully displayed an energy saving of 72% after the adoption and could use Billion Smart Outdoor LCMS to control all LED lights without any problems.
