Over the decades, different generations of outdoor lighting have been installed around the site, leading to a mix of technologies and an inconsistent look and feel. Philips TownTune luminaires will light the campus’s roads, paths and car parks as part of a site-wide development to provide consistency of design, improve wayfinding, and reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions. In addition, the luminaires have an upward light output ratio of zero, therefore minimizing sky glow and the impact on the night sky.
Each of the new luminaires is equipped with a unique QR code connected to the Signify Service Tag application. Site managers can scan the QR code to access documentation and data, configure the luminaire directly at the installation site, and access the latest spare part information, including any new generation updates. The Service Tag application also supports asset management data, allowing organizations to document information to better manage lighting assets.
“The team at Signify worked with us to help meet our goals – including energy savings and a reduction in carbon emissions,” said Adam Fjaerem, Building Energy Manager at the University of Cambridge. “Working with Signify was more like a partnership between two teams going after the same mission. We are looking forward to working with them on the next phase of the project.”
