The lamppost as a hub for efficient Smart City solutions

ELEQ Smart Multi Connection Box and Application Modules

ELEQ Smart Multi Connection Box

For years, ELEQ has been the leading partner for providing safe and compact connections in lampposts. The rise of the multipurpose lamppost—where modern technology comes together to make a city “smarter”—requires new solutions. The existing lamppost is the  most sustainable solution for everything to come together and is called a Smart Node.

To facilitate the smart Lamppost, ELEQ has developed the Smart Multi Connection Box. The multifunctional connection box is equipped with a compact kWh meter, communication module and other features to ensure optimal operation of the new functionalities.

  • Efficient distribution of incoming power
  • Accurate current measurement and calculation of each current division
  • Load balancing for optimal distribution of incoming power
  • Protection of both electrical components and data

ELEQ Connection Box EV

ELEQ’s EV charging lamppost solutions are designed to blend into the existing street view—perfect for a quick rollout in residential areas or your own business park. ELEQ offers two EV charging solutions for use in lampposts:

  • The EV Charger KIT, the quick “add-on” solution for lampposts;
  • The Connection Box EV for full integration in the lamppost.

ELEQ Connection Box Sound Sensor

Together with its partners, ELEQ has developed a Connection Box with an integrated decibel meter that can easily be installed in a lamppost. The sensitive parts of the measuring equipment are installed at the base of the lamppost This eliminates the need for an aerial platform during maintenance and allows the work to be performed by one person.

  • Targeted activation of camera systems using sound measurements

Societal challenges require smart solutions and the right technology. That is what ELEQ offers.

Making cities accessible and liveable is a major challenge for the future. How do we shape the energy transition while keeping our infrastructure efficient and available? Technology and digitalisation play a major role in managing this large-scale change. A “Smart City” aims to increase the quality of life for its residents and visitors.

The lamppost as the key to sustainability and smartening up

The reuse of existing objects in private and public areas is the most sustainable solution and avoids a proliferation of lampposts, communication towers and EV charging stations. Because of their height and existing infrastructure, lampposts —combined with ELEQ’s smart solutions—are extremely suitable as solution for social challenges such as improving mobility, efficient energy use, health and safety.
