OutdoorLink, Inc. is excited to release the SL-2-DC controller, its newest addition to the SmartLink™ Asset Management System. This model is designed to manage low voltage digital assets like bus stop lighting, real-time signage, WIFI routers, media players and illuminated advertising shelters. All assets are controlled through the cloud, which reduces the need for onsite troubleshooting and provides 24/7 monitoring and control.
The SL-2-DC can manage solar or AC powered devices but is particularly valuable for monitoring solar powered assets like lighting and digital signage. When assets like these reach critically low power levels or lose power entirely, the SmartLink™ system notifies users so they can minimize downtime and restore functionality as quickly as possible. Run-times can be changed online to accommodate solar power limitations, which keeps devices running when needed and reduces the frequency of solar battery replacements.
The SL-2-DC is the most compact controller in the SmartLink™ collection and can be easily installed into new or existing enclosures. OutdoorLink has partnered with Urban Solar, the public transit industry leader in solar lighting, to include the SL-2-DC in the deployment of the new PV Stop+. The PV Stop+ provides a pole-mounted solar solution for bus stops without shelters where security lighting and/or digital displays are needed. “Through SmartLink, we’re able to offer clients 24/7 visibility to the health of their assets and make adjustments as needed to keep things running. It’s not sustainable to do this manually at hundreds of locations, and we want to help clients be proactive instead of reactive,” says Eben Lindsey, Manager at Urban Solar.
