INTRODUCTION OF MULTI-COUNTRY CERTIFICATION OF SMART STREET LIGHTS AND LORA TECHNOLOGY

INTRODUCTION OF MULTI-COUNTRY CERTIFICATION OF SMART STREET LIGHTS AND LORA TECHNOLOGY

RELEASE DATE:2020-03-18 17:26
ABSTRACT:Street lights are applied in motorway, pavements, tunnels with functions of accident prevention, crime prevention and public safety as critical tools of outdoor lighting, the symbol of morden civilization. With technology improving, products like LED street lights, solar street lights, intelligent light posts have been under regulation in many markets.

STREET LIGHTING MULTI-COUNTRY CERTIFICATION

LUMINAIRES FOR ROAD AND STREET LIGHTING
According to International Electrotechnical Commission Standard IEC 60598-2-3, this standard specifies:
Luminaires for road, street lighting and other public outdoor lighting applications;
Tunnel lighting;
Column-integrated luminaires with a minium total height above normal ground level of 2,5m;
And for use with electronic lighting sources on supply voltages not exceeding 1000V. (including LED street lights and solar lights with supply voltages below 220V)
NOTE   Column intergrated luminaires with a total height below 2,5m are under consideration.

As an international industrial standard, IEC 60598-2-3 has been widely adopted or modified to be mandatory regulations in global markets:

China Mainland: GB 7000.5-2005/IEC 60598-2-3:2002 Safety Requirements: Luminaires for Road and Street Lighting (completely adopted from IEC)
China Taiwan: CNS 15233 Light-Emitting Diode Street Lighting Luminaires  (Taiwan has completely eliminated non-LED light source street lights, this standard subjects to street lights with LED light sources, basically adopted from IEC)
Brazil: Ordinance No. 20 of 02/15/2017 Street Lights 92.1 (only covers street lights below 600W, bascally adopted)
Indonesia : SNI IEC 60598-2-3:2016 Safety Requirements: Luminaires for Road and Street Lighting (completely adopted)
India: IS 10322 (Part 5/Section 3) LED Street Lighting Luminaires (basically adopted); IS 16270 Storage Battery for Solar Photovoltaic Application
Thailand: TIS 1955-2551 Lighting and similar equipment : radio disturbance limits (only EMC)
Saudi Arabia: SASO 2927 energy efficiency functionality and labelling requirements for lighting products – Part 3 : street lighting
Ecuador :RTE INEN 069 (1R)  Street Lights (completely adopted)
South Africa: SANS 475 Safety Requirements: Luminaires for Road and Street Lighting
(completely adopted)
Above standards are part of existing regulations. If you want to know more about exporting markets, please contact ATIC for information.

INFORMATION COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY MODULES
With the new generation information technology applications (e.g. IoT, cloud computing), the concept of intelligent  city is rapidly developing in full awareness, wide interconnection, pervasive computing and fusion application. Intelligent street lights with information communication technologies is the acess of intelligent city. LoRa has become the favourite intelligent street light solution by its advantages of long-range, low energy comsumption, multi-joints and anti-interference.

LoRa (Long Range) is a low-power wide-area network (LPWAN) technology. It was developed by Cycleo of Grenoble, France as an innovative semiconductor technology and acquired by Semtech the founding member of the LoRa Alliance. Intelligent street lights with LoRa technology are regulated to be certified in many countries and regions.
