Municipalities have to carry out many tasks:
• Maintenance of streets
• Disposal of garbage
• Sewer cleaning
• Waste cleaning
• Winter service
• Fire fighting and more
Many operations undertaken by municipalities take place in bad weather conditions when machine operators are exposed to rain, fog and dust where visibility is poor. In winter they are exposed to ice and snow in the streets which creates reflections leading to glare. Snow covered ground creates intense glare with the average reflection of light over the field of view being very high, in the range of 70 to 90 %. Ideally, lighting that has a lower colour temperature as well as a low illumination level is required to reduce the reflections from the snow.
Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to switch the colour temperature according to the seasons? Warmer light combined with less luminance when there is snow on the ground and colder light providing higher luminance levels when there is no snow on the ground.
Switching colour temperatures can be accomplished with the TYRI INTELLilight. This system allows you to adjust the colour temperature range from 2800 K (halogen) to 6500 K (cold white). Additionally, you can dim any individual lamp regardless of the light next to it, from 0% to 100 % and add a light luminance sensor that reacts to glare and dim lights automatically. This is a very effective solution for machines with multiple operators as you can personalize your settings. INTELLilight is highly suitable for snow removal and de-icing machines.
