What is LeafNut?
Venture’s LeafNut™ system is an advanced intelligent wireless control system for area or street lighting. The LeafNut “nodes” are housed in each light fixture and communicate via radio, satellite and cellular systems to deliver control and status messages to your secure web page accessed from any computer on the web. You can control, adjust, monitor and receive maintenance messages from each light fixture. With our upgrade kit of energy efficient pulse start ballasts and Uni-Form® lamps plus the power of the LeafNut system, you can drastically reduce your energy consumption expenses while improving with bright, white site lighting.
A Turnkey Solution
Venture’s LeafNut system is a complete turnkey solution for street lighting, outdoor area and indoor lighting. From socket to user interface, to server hosting and monitoring, we provide a complete wireless control & dimming system that dramatically increases energy savings and overall light quality.
Monitoring and Control
Using the secure https web page created just for your site, you will be able to monitor, control, dim and report on energy usage for each light fixture. The system also indicates lamp out errors and ballast issues which allow your maintenance support to react quickly. The LeafNut system also has built-in safeguards in the event of loss of communications. Each Leaf node will act autonomously and use its own internal program until given a new set of programming codes.
Lifetime Support Policy
Simple and practical, LeafNut comes with a lifetime support policy which provides our customers with complete peace of mind. The policy gives customers access to technical support from our team of experts.
Not only does the LeafNut system reduce energy usage, but it can supply factual energy consumption data with intuitive reporting and email notifications to accurately analyze ROI.
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
1. This device may not cause harmful interference, and
2. This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause unwanted operation.
Retrofit and Installation
Part of the LeafNut system is also a retrofit of a new EISA 2007 compliant ballast, ignitor and Uni-Form® lamp combination. The retrofit immediately reduces energy consumption while providing brighter, whiter lighting. For example, a 1000 watt fixture can now be 875 watts with 100% light output, then dim to 50% wattage for off-peak hours and finally shutdown alternating lights for added savings while maintaining security.
Installations are very easy by one of our Certified LeafNut Installers. Venture will be overseeing the installation, initial programming to your specifications and training/support after the installation is complete.
