Remote control sports lighting is achieved with QTech Wireless Point to Point (WP2P) modules. Typical applications include rugby fields, cricket pitches or even car parks.
This will save you the time and effort of going to each lighting tower before and after each game.
A vandal resistant antenna is mounted on the electrical panel at each lighting tower. The system has a range of hundreds of meters from the control room, making it ideal for virtually any sports facility.
Control of the lighting towers is by a simple switch closure in the control room – a wireless alternative to cable systems, without having to install hundreds of metres of cable.
The WP2P low voltage relay outputs are integrated into the existing electrical lighting control circuit.
If needed, signals can also come back to the control room from each lighting tower, this could be Status OK/Door Open/temperature alert etc.
The systems use our 900MHz ISM band digital radios – ideal for use in both Australia and New Zealand.
Choosing which system to use primarily depends on how many lighting towers etc you need to control.
There are two options: the Multi Point Controller system and the WP2P Star system.
Multi Point Controller Option
This system remotely controls up to eight lighting towers. It also has a simple yet powerful configuration tool that provides you extra control options.
The Multi Point Controller is installed in the control room and connected to control switches.
Tip – Each module has 3 outputs, so each tower could have high/medium/low light control options etc.
WP2P Star Option
This system remotely controls up to three lighting towers. This is the entry level system and virtually plug and play.
The master module is installed in the control room and connected to three control switches.
Tip – Mount the master module at a lighting tower, then four towers can be controlled by just visiting one tower.
Vandal Resistant Antenna
Our recommended antenna is the ruggedised low profile antenna which is only 16mm high.
Output Hold and Repeater Operation
Both the Multi Point Controller and WP2P Star systems have an Output Hold function. This is essentially a failsafe, so that if the radio communications are interrupted, the lighting can remain on.
WP2P modules have two configurable options: “Output Hold” and “Talk via Repeater”. See the WP2P System User Guide for further details.
WP2P Star systems also support the WP2P Repeater functionality. This allows communication range to be extended. The WP2P master and all slaves must be configured to use it. All slaves must be able to see the repeater as all communications will be via the repeater, even if a slave is close to the master module.
