Wireless Control and Communication System for LED Luminaires and Other Devices
BACK TO CONTRACTS & BIDS LIST
- Project Description
Participants in the Pilot Project will agree to demonstrate the function of their wireless control system to control a minimum of 18 LED street lights; and the ability of their wireless system to dim the LED street lights in response to pedestrian activity and traffic volume sensors. The SFPUC has provided a list of LED luminaires that may be proposed as part of the innovative solution in Appendix A, Related Products. Each proposed pilot project solution should utilize products from only one LED manufacturer. Depending upon the nature of the proposed innovative solution, Participants may also choose to demonstrate an LED control system’s interoperability with other municipal wireless devices such as utility, way finding, public information or safety related infrastructure.
The SFPUC will select three pilot project sites, representative of San Francisco’s variable streetscape conditions. For the purposes of a side by side comparison, each innovative solution, including six street lights and associated devices, will be installed at each of the three locations. The Pilot Project installation sites will be selected at a later date by the SFPUC, but Participants can expect challenging topographic conditions populated with cell phone towers and office buildings. The Pilot Project installation sites will necessitate replacement of HPS lights with a maximum wattage of 200 watts.
The cost of each Pilot Project will be shared by the SFPUC and the Participant. The SFPUC will contribute the labor associated with field installation of the LED luminaires and other devices at the Pilot Project sites, along with lighting design services, and a stipend of $15,000 per Participant after successful installation. In exchange, the Participant will agree to provide their time to design, integrate, coordinate and implement the Pilot Project as well as the LED street lights and other devices integral to their solution.
