At LV Energy Systems we realize the need for instant answers therefore we have created the PoE Smart Pole FAQs. Here you will find answers to all kinds of common questions that clients have asked. We have tried to make it as inclusive and intuitive as possible. Some FAQs will contain links to other pages on the website or to industry experts as a point of reference. If you still do not see the answers you need please feel free to click here and contact us . Please keep in mind that we are always eager and happy to speak to anyone who has unanswered questions or just wants to discuss a project. The PoE Smart Pole FAQs is constantly being updated so please check back often for updates.
All PoE Smart Poles are fully controllable using the Olympus™ B.A.S. The system is also modular and any number of individual modules can be added in order to monitor exactly what is needed.
Yes, we are currently in phase one of a multi phase project. We have currently installed 50 poles out of close to 400 on the client site.
Yes, any existing street light can be converted to a fully functional Luminetworx™ powered PoE 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 make this happen. Fortunately LV Energy Systems has already created a managed PoE switch that can operate on a variety of line voltages ranging from 110 – 277 VAC. It can now power a host of devices without any additional conversion making everything from this point on plug and play. But why convert to PoE? Aside from the technology upgrade the entire pole fully loaded can now operate on under 5 amps.
Yes, but not only do we have PoE street lighting, we have the industries most energy efficient. We are able to produce 18000 lumens and consume a mere 90 watts or just 1 amp. But here is the most amazing part, we are able to run the network drop at lengths over 1500 feet. Yes that is correct 1500 feet is not a mistake. And we are currently in testing for cable lengths over 2000 feet.
It depends on wether you have one or two street lights on the pole. The next thing to take into consideration is the total power consumption of all the accessories. But potentially you can have two 18,000 Lumen street lights, one cctv, one PTMP antenna and a WAP. This is just one of many possible configurations, a proper power assesment is needed to fully dertermine what and how many devices you can have on the PoE Smart Pole. Every PoE Smart Pole is modular so as your needs grow so can your PoE Smart Pole.
The Luminetworx™ outdoor PoE switch has 10 802.3bt ports and 1 fiber port.
A PoE Smart Pole is a smart pole that is completely powered by a specialized PoE Switch.
It really depends on the current environment. If you are converting an existing street light the Luminetworx™ can use between 100 – 277 VAC to power the PoE switch. If you are using a centralized model for installation you would not install the PoE switch at the pole but rather in centralized outdoor electrical housing. Regardless of your situation the PoE Smart Pole infrastructure is very versatile and can adapt to your current situation.
