THE DIMMING OF HID LAMPS


THE CONCEPT OF  DUAL-WATTAGE.

The lamp selection is based on peak hour requirement and this leads to energy wastages in the non peak hours.


The SMART SWITCH automatically changes the wattage of the lamp in the non-peak hours to a lower wattage.

1. 400 W to 250 W,

2. 250 W to 150 W,

3. 150 W to   70 W

THE OPERATION OF SMART SWITCH

operation_of_smart_switch

The operation of Smart Switch without any power interruption.

ZONE ‘A’ :  NORMAL RATED WATTAGE OF THE LAMP FOR THE FIRST 4 HOURS AS SELECTED FROM THE TIME OF SWITCHING ON..

ZONE ‘B’ :  REDUCED  WATTAGE LEVEL OF 60% AFTER THE EXPIRY OF THE SELECTED TIME TILL SWITCHED OFF


POWER INTERRUPTION AND SMART SWITCH

HID_img6

The operation of Smart Switch with power interruption during the night
ZONE ‘A’ : NORMAL RATED WATTAGE OF THE LAMP DURING ZONE A AS SELECTED.
ZONE ‘A’ : THE TOTAL DURATION OF ZONE A INCLUDES THE POWER FAILURE TIME ALSO.
ZONE ‘B’ : REDUCED WATTAGE LEVEL OF 60% AFTER THE EXPIRY OF THE SELECTED TIME
ZONE ‘C’ : INTERRUPTION IN POWER SUPPLY LEADING TO SWITCHED OFF STATE OF THE LAMP
ZONE ‘D’ : NORMAL RATED WATTAGE FOR THE FIRST 5 MINUTES TO WARM UP THE LAMP
ZONE ‘E’ : REDUCED WATTAGE IMMEDIATEL Y AFTER THE EXPIRY OF THE 5 MINUTES.


SAVE SWITCH ENSURES UNIFORMITY FACTORHID_img7
No alternative pole switching OFF

No dark and bright patches leading to visual difficulty to road users.

Dimming ratio as per the field requirements.
