Lightworks® Smart Lighting Solutions
Smart Emergency and Flexible Lighting Solutions
In any industry, high power, rapidly deployable lighting solutions for emergency and planned maintenance activities enhance safety, , facilitate recovery, and optimize productivity for first responders and technicians. Dependable, resilient and flexible lighting deployments are essential to mitigating the impact of both unplanned and planned lighting disruptions. The BlackStarTech® Lightworks® family of lighting delivers two separate series of emergency and maintenance lighting solutions that meet and exceed emergency and regulatory facility lighting requirements.
Lightworks® Product Family
BlackStarTech Lightworks iSentient Series smart emergency lighting devices provide advanced LED lighting, state-of-the-art battery technology, self-diagnostic testing of both battery and performance monitoring health, as well as provide platform for Internet of Things (IOT) connectivity and communications. With this suite of technology-enabled lights, you can remotely manage and maintain your smart emergency lighting across your facility, automate surveillances, minimize maintenance, and reduce lifecycle costs.
BlackStarTech Lightworks BrightSites Series flexible lighting solutions is made up of a series of industrialized, rapidly deployable, highly reliable battery uninterruptible power source (UPS) lighting solutions. The BrightSites Series offers lighting options in many sizes, from a compact advanced handheld LED lightpack, to our rugged mobile light towers and stadium trailer lighting that can be used to support industrial facilities with various maintenance, shutdown, outage, and emergency applications.
The Competitive Advantage
Unlike offerings from competitors who use lead acid batteries that are expensive and difficult to maintain, the Lightworks iSentient Series and BrightSites Series leverage Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries (LiFePO4), which are 50% lighter, have much greater energy density, a 3X longer life expectancy, and are more environmentally friendly.
Lightworks iSentient Series and BrightSites Series products can be used in a variety of applications for law enforcement, road construction, building construction, warehousing, special events, hospitals, nuclear facilities, industrial plants, and in other demanding environments.
Lithium Iron Phosphate Batteries: Better and Safer Than Your Typical Industry Batteries
Both the iSentient Series and BrightSites Series use Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries, which are safe, reliable, and more environmentally friendly than lead acid batteries. While the internal battery management system performs advanced self-diagnostics to protect the battery, the chemical make-up allows the battery to maintain an expected lifespan of 15 years, which is significantly longer than lead acid. This means fewer battery replacements, less downtime, and increased reliability.
The internal battery management system optimizes functionality and safety. The system monitors battery health including cell voltage, maximum charge and discharge current, overvoltage, overcurrent, temperature, cell balancing, short circuit, and more. The battery management system takes protective actions to improve reliability and safety using notification alarms through data communications or by automatically disconnecting the battery. Temperature-sensing self-diagnostics eliminate the possibility of dangerous temperature ranges for the battery, avoiding thermal runaway.
Standard emergency lighting devices often use antiquated lead acid batteries that need to be replaced every 3 to 5 years. Additionally, they often require weekly and monthly manual validation checks, experience frequent failures, and can incur expensive repairs. As for the iSentient Series, the utilization of Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries deliver significant maintenance cost savings due to the lifespan and little to no maintenance required through it automated self-diagnostic and surveillance function. It’s estimated that a customer could redeploy up to 2 full-time equivalent employees and save up to $150,000 in annual materials and maintenance costs when switching their emergency lighting to the iSentient Series
