This Model Public Lighting Controls Specification, now in its second edition, has been developed in conjunction with key stakeholders and is driven by ANZ user needs, leading precedents and a range of domestic and international technical standards and specifications.
The objective of this model specification is to accelerate the adoption of smart controls in public lighting by bringing robustness and confidence to procurement processes. Millions of smart street lighting controls are now deployed around the world and the evidence is clear. If well delivered, smart controls can help lighting owners more efficiently manage these assets, tailor lighting levels to the requirements of each location, save additional energy, reduce environmental impacts, monitor performance, measure energy consumption and provide a robust communications network to support other smart city devices.
This updated specification incorporates feedback from users, recent changes to terminology and updates to domestic and international standards. It also adds new Excel-based returnable schedules to make preparing and responding to tenders easier for all parties.
