Harvard and One2See Signs offer intelligent signs

Harvard Engineering, which produces LED control products for the lighting industry, has teamed up with LED street sign manufacturer One2See Signs, to provide local authorities across the UK with a system that will allow them to control and monitor LED road signs. The partnership will see Harvard’s LeafNut wireless monitoring and control system, which was initially designed to work with street lighting, being installed alongside One2See Signs’ internally illuminated LED signs. The new system will give local authorities the ability to save energy and carbon emissions by accurately timed on and off switching, as well as being able to remotely manage lighting schedules and inventory. There will also be a reduction in night scouting costs, due to LeafNut’s unique reporting feature, which can accurately predict lamp failure.

The controllable signs have already been successfully trialled by Westminster City Council in London, which was one of the first local authorities in the UK to install LeafNut to manage its street lighting. The council is now rolling out the new integrated system across its street signs throughout the city. Russell Fletcher, sales and marketing director at Harvard commented, “Our partnership with One2See Signs means we can now offer local authorities a wireless solution to manage and control street lighting installations and all internally illuminated LED road signs. For councils with LeafNut already installed, the signs can be added at a minimal additional cost.” The LeafNut street lighting management system has been installed by approaching 100 local authorities worldwide, including Surrey County Council in the UK, Hobart (Tasmania), Paris (France), Sydney (Australia), Bargota (Spain), and Zurs (Austria).
