CIMCON’s intelligent controls to help JPS implement its vision beyond a connected city to a connected nation
Intelligent lighting and smart city technologies provider, CIMCON Lighting, has been selected by the Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) to provide 35,000 intelligent streetlight controls as part of JPS’ vision for connected lighting and a connected nation.
JPS is the sole distributor of electricity in the country. CIMCON’s ANSI C136.41 compliant 7-pin intelligent controls will connect to Silver Spring Networks advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) network.
It will provide JPS with the ability to realise reduced energy and maintenance costs through features such as remote control and scheduling, adaptive dimming control, revenue grade energy metering, automated fault monitoring and alert notifications, and superior asset management capabilities.
"CIMCON is very pleased to have been selected by JPS as its intelligent controls provider," said Anil Agrawal, CIMCON Lighting, CEO.
"Our controls coupled with Silver Spring’s AMI network will allow JPS to reduce its energy costs while simultaneously providing a clear path to the realisation of its vision for a connected nation by providing the platform for a wide variety of sensors and applications including environmental sensors, video analytics, traffic monitoring, electric vehicle chargers and more."
JPS extended its relationship with Silver Spring Networks earlier this year by adding 110,000 street lights to its multi-application IPv6 platform. The programme focuses on areas such as Kingston, Spanish Town, Negril and Falmouth.
