RLCS for Cheshire East
Why the need for an Remote Lamp Control System (RLCS)?
Traditional traffic light signal installations often require costly new infrastructure due to the groundworks required to install the ducts. This causes major road disruptions and puts road user safety at risk which leads to a decrease in road user satisfaction. For Cheshire East Council, this meant installations could not be undertaken at all junctions due to the extensive groundworks required.
What is it?
Dynniq’s Remote Lamp Control System is based on a distributed controller approach. This takes some of the core technology, which is traditionally located centrally within the Traffic Signal Controller, and instead distributes the functionality locally to modules housed within the Signal Head.
What are the benefits of a Remote Lamp Control System?
Dynniq’s RLCS solution creates a significant reduction in the both the number and size of cables required to support an installation, meaning installing less and shallower ducting into the ground. This method allows for multiple installation options with much less disruption to the road network and a quicker turnaround both in turn resulting in higher road user satisfaction and a significant reduction in costs.
Where is it being deployed?
This has been deployed in different locations around Cheshire East and now use the RLCS solution on most of their Pedestrian Crossings installations.
