The Galaxy LCU (Light Control Unit) is installed on top of the luminaire and utilizes a photocell-like receptacle for monitoring and control functions of the streetlight fixture, including dimming. Each LCU can be converted into the repeater, combining LCU and repeater functionality. Repeaters enable the extension of the base station’s communication range and coverage to dead zones of LCUs that are unable to communicate with the base station directly. Every LCU can be converted into a repeater via firmware download from the CMS.
The T-Light Galaxy offers two distinct LCU’s for controlling street lights. For standard Cobra heads, the LCU NEMA meets the ANSI C136.41 7-pin “twist lock” standard and may be easily installed on any luminaire which has a matching socket. Additionally, the LCU Internal is designed to fit streetlights which do not have the standard C136.41 7-pin socket. These may include decorative post top fixtures and others.
