The APANET Green System Ltd. created and implemented a new system in the city of Tychy. This Smart Lighting Control System project involved the modernization of the 1,150 lamps and replacement of 850 lighting poles and wiring on the 35 streets of Tychy. The project, known as SOWA, is an energy-efficient street lighting program, which was supported by grants and loans by the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management (NFEP&WM). Tychy is the only city in this voivodeship (Silesia) that qualified for this project.

The well-known L-IP routers have been revamped and come out in new, even more powerful models with a "C": The LIP-3ECTC and LIP-33ECTC (one and two FT ports) and the LIP-1ECTC (TP/XF-1250). They provide all the standard features, including the built-in configuration server, enhanced communications test, backup/restore, remote LPA protocol analyzer, and support for DHCP and extended NAT.

The new LCD display with jog-dial makes device setup easier. The two Ethernet ports can be operated in switch mode and allow a daisy-chain installation, which reduces cabling effort. Project documentation can be stored and accessed directly on the Web interface. A Wireshark packet capture can analyze the IP network and with the LWLAN-800 adapter the L-IPs can even operate on the WLAN!

The built-in firewall and Web interface for installation using HTTPS make the L-IPs secure devices. By configuring separate IP networks on the two Ethernet ports, the building’s CEA-852 network on the LAN can be entirely isolated from the configuration interface on the WAN. This makes security hardening a simple task.

For perfect integration into building management software such as the LWEB-900 by LOYTEC, the new L-IPs offer an embedded OPC UA server with full-featured certificate authentication. This server exposes important operational parameters as OPC tags. For enhanced maintainability by IT departments, the L-IPs also provide the same data through an integrated SNMP server.
