Council's requirements for luminaires, columns and outreach arms for streetlighting are set out in the Infrastructure Design Specifications – Part 11: Lighting.
Luminaires shall be Light Emitting Diode (LED) type, be on the latest NZTA, M30 Accepted Luminaires list(external link) and be accepted for use on the Council’s road lighting network.
As lighting technologies are continually changing, the list of accepted luminaires will be frequently updated.
Council has installed a wireless control system to manage and control the street lights.
The Council’s Central Management System (CMS) consists of:
As new street lights are installed or existing lights are upgraded they shall be controlled by a LC installed on the light. If they are connected to existing ripple controlled street lighting circuits they will only have power on at night. It is envisaged that when all street lights on a circuit are connected to the CMS the circuit can be converted to a 24-hour supply.
The LC shall be accepted type and programmed to operate on the Council’s CMS:
SELC model 8S66331-003009-3-CCC is an acceptable LC.
The Contractor is required to provide data that can be uploaded into RAMM and SLV as changes to the network occur.
Each LC has a MAC ID, which is a unique identifier for that controller. When an LC has been installed the MAC ID shall be captured accurately along with the required RAMM to enable it to be added to RAMM and SLV. If not captured correctly, a return visit may be required to recapture this information.
When applying for acceptance for poles and outreach arms, provide the associated manufacturer’s drawings, specifications and Producer Statements (PS1). If non-frangible poles are proposed, clearly state this on the drawings. The following ground planted frangible column, outreach arm and adaptor drawings provide dimensions which must be achieved to obtain acceptance.
All new poles being installed shall be earthed via a separate earth rod as follows:
For each pole an earth test sheet containing the following information shall be provided with the completion documentation:
Standard drawing SD514 and a sample test sheet can be provided on request.
