In 2020, the lighting industry continues to move forward in the ups and downs. The epidemic caused the suspension of social activities, forcing companies to return to calm and re-examine themselves. On the one hand, the concepts of beautiful China, smart cities, green lighting, and night travel economy advocated and encouraged by the state continue to be deeply rooted in the hearts of the people. Landscape lighting is still an important direction to stimulate local economic growth and improve people’s happiness in life. At the same time, landscape lighting The market is still an important pillar of the lighting industry in the near future; on the other hand, the short-term setbacks of the industry are urging innovation and change in the landscape lighting field. The plight of outdoor engineering construction is also highlighted in the epidemic, which makes the construction party’s operation and maintenance of large projects Be cautious.
Operation and maintenance: what are the difficulties and pain points?
High-quality engineering construction is just a good start, and later operation and maintenance are the keys that are most easily overlooked. In the development process of outdoor lighting projects, post-maintenance work has an important impact on the overall operation of the lighting project and the display of project quality. The construction party needs to adjust the work in accordance with the maintenance requirements in specific project practices to ensure practical protection The overall level and effect of the post-maintenance of outdoor lighting projects.
So, what are the difficulties and pain points in the operation and maintenance of outdoor lighting projects? According to survey data, the top three are: high labor costs, inconsistent lighting standards, incompatible ports, and cumbersome replacement procedures.
Say goodbye to the barbaric growth in the early stage of outdoor engineering development. After the previous rounds of market cleaning, the outdoor lighting industry has begun to enter the second half of quality and efficiency improvement. It is true that the demand for talents, especially the demand for professional technical operation and maintenance personnel, is increasing day by day. On the one hand, as the scale of the outdoor lighting market continues to expand, industry competition is becoming increasingly fierce. On the other hand, this also means that the industry has begun to enter the stage of fine operation, and the desire of engineering builders to reduce costs and increase efficiency has become stronger.
In addition, with continuous breakthroughs in technological innovation, rapid update iterations of lamps, technical specifications and management specifications lagging behind, inconsistent lighting standards, and port incompatibility problems have also brought greater difficulties to the operation and maintenance of the project. The construction of the monitoring system is independent, and the strength of unified planning and coordination needs to be strengthened. The connection and management of different departments are not clear, which makes the maintenance and replacement process of lamps quite cumbersome.
Of course, according to feedback from relevant personnel, many cities still have many problems in the operation and maintenance of engineering projects. There is a lack of mature experience to learn from. It is necessary to explore the maturity of project operation and maintenance through the cooperation and common wisdom of enterprises, governments and construction parties. Mode, promote the implementation of outdoor lighting industrialization and long-term sustainable development.
Development and innovation: Pay attention to product quality and humanized process design
In an increasingly fast-paced modern city, the construction of outdoor lighting projects must pursue quality and carry people’s various yearnings for a better life. In the entire operation and maintenance link, the choice of lamps is very important. In the survey, the interviewees generally believed that “good quality and long service life” are the primary considerations for their choice of lamps; in addition, “easy installation” and “good waterproof performance”.
What factors actually cause damage to the lamps? 74.68% of the interviewees said that a common problem in lighting maintenance is a “control system problem”. In addition, 70.89% of the interviewees think it is a “power supply problem.”
At present, the mode based on pure lighting and lighting can no longer keep up with the pace of urban development, and urban landscape lighting will inevitably become artistic, interactive and intelligent after reaching a certain demand.
Then, the future competition point of outdoor landscape lighting begins to be reflected in the intelligent lighting control system. The widespread use of intelligent control systems has also set up larger problems for later operation and maintenance. According to professionals, outdoor LED landscape lighting needs to pay special attention to waterproofing. Any liquid leakage may cause a short circuit of the LED drive power supply. Especially in subtropical countries and regions, or offshore and water lighting projects, they are often subjected to extreme weather tests such as thunderstorms, rain and high temperature and humidity. At this time, whether the lamps have excellent waterproof and breathable functions is extremely critical for outdoor LED power supplies. .
So, what are the main reasons for the common problems in the maintenance of the above lamps? 92.41% of the interviewees think it is “product quality”, 65.82% of the interviewees think it is “installation technology”, and 51.9% of the interviewees think it is “waterproof performance”.
In summary, with the current development of outdoor lighting, new technologies, new processes, new products, and new equipment are rapidly promoted and applied. At the same time, companies should pay more attention to product quality and humanized process design, and correctly grasp the direction of industry development. Rather than blindly follow the trend and imitate the same, so as to produce shoddy, homogenized serious consequences, affecting the healthy and sustainable development of the industry.
Ye Dingyuan, the author of the book “Night Economics”, said: “The prosperity of the night economy can further improve the development level of the service industry and increase the proportion of the service industry in the industry. It is an important driving force for promoting economic restructuring and accelerating the transformation of economic development mode.”
Outdoor landscape lighting empowers the beautiful development of the city. It is actually a good thing for a city, which directly and indirectly confirms that the city is progressing, developing, and renewing. In this research report, the interviewees pointed out the importance of outdoor lighting project operation and maintenance. Starting from project planning, investors and builders must have strategic plans for construction, operation, maintenance, and upgrading, so that they can continue to develop the future of urban lighting and ultimately achieve the goal of a better city.
