Harvard partners with One2See Signs

Jan. 3, 2013
Date Announced: 03 Jan 2013 Harvard Engineering, world leader in the design, development and manufacture of LED drivers and 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 solution that allows them to totally control and monitor LED road signs.The partnership will see Harvard’s wireless monitoring and control system, LeafNut, which was initially designed to work with street lighting, being installed alongside One2See Signs’ internally illuminated LED signs. The new solution will give local authorities the ability to save energy and carbon emissions by accurately timed switching on and off, as well as being able to remotely manage lighting schedules and inventory. In addition, there will 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, 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 solution across its street signs throughout the city, including in Arlington Street, Pall Mall, and Carlisle Place.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.”LeafNut has been installed by approaching 100 local authorities worldwide, including Surrey County Council in the UK, Hobart in Tasmania, Paris, Sydney, Bargota in Spain, and Zurs in Austria.
