Mayrise Software Boosts Street Lighting Efficiency for Peterborough City Council
Street lighting asset management software from Mayrise Systems is supporting the UK’s Peterborough City Council with ambitious plans to minimise maintenance costs. The new system will also work in tandem with the council’s central management system.
MAYRISE Street Lighting is a complete asset management system with integrated MapNow mapping designed to simplify and improve the management of asset records. It provides fast online access to inventory, contractor and customer records and incorporates instant mapping to pinpoint asset or fault locations. Handling cyclic maintenance, fault management, electrical testing and financial control MAYRISE Street Lighting also links to corporate GIS and portable computers for field data entry and mapping.
“The installation of the MAYRISE Street Lighting system has helped us to create and maintain a detailed street lighting inventory which has been integral to our improvement plans,” commented Sally Savage, a senior officer at Peterborough City Council. “The Mayrise system integrates with our remote control and monitoring system and our maintenance contractors can access the system remotely.”
The asset database links to the council’s Telensa system which allows for the remote control and monitoring of lighting units. Wireless technology lighting units are fitted with a small radio aerial. The unit transmits information, such as energy consumption, burning hours, temperature and mains supply voltage, and can also be used to determine if a lamp has failed. Operating times can be controlled and the lighting level of the unit varied in those devices that have a dimming module installed.
Peterborough City Council selected MAYRISE Street Lighting following a comprehensive tender process as its previous solution was deemed to be technologically obsolete.
