flexible and independent

luxData.desktop used in conjunction with MS-Access installed on external computers allows data to be processed
off-line which makes it possible to check and process data generated by systems and to create new systems in luxData.

One possible application:

You provide data about lighting points to external inspectors whose task it is to check the stability of masts. The inspectors
would then be able to record the measurements directly at site. It would also be possible to store photos along with the geographic coordinates and use these for documentation purposes. New or processed data from the systems may then
be synchronised with the live data in luxData. luxData.desktop will help you remain flexible and independent of the system
in your work.

to acquire data

A complete new analysis of existing system data constitutes the foundation stone for the future documentation of street lighting. The task of documenting systems at site is easier if data is already available electronically and in the form of tables. Catalogue data for the lamps and fixtures used is particularly helpful here. We will first transfer data that already exists in this way into luxData.licht and then export it to luxData.desktop.

The individual lamp sites may then be "compiled" in luxData.desktop with the help of this catalogue data. Several identical lamp sites only need to be created once and then copied as needed. Only the individual details for the specific lamp sites then have to be modified (e.g. location). It is thus in this way easy to map complete networks of street lights. Images and the correct geo data may also be assigned to each lamp site.

to actualise inventory data

It may be necessary to check existing data for several reasons.
It is particularly useful to check and update the data provided about systems once it has been transferred to luxData.licht. To this end, the data transferred to luxData.licht must be exported to luxData.desktop. A comparison of the actual site data and the existing data may then be carried out in this way and, for instance, existing data may subsequently be immediately corrected if necessary. The edited data will be synchronised with the live data when the information is transferred from luxData.desktop to luxData.licht.

stability analysis

The use of external service providers may become necessary for a variety of different tasks.
The required system data may be transferred to these service providers (who, for instance, have been tasked with checking safety and stability) with the help of luxData.desktop. To this end, the data for selected systems may be exported from luxData.licht to luxData.desktop so that only the necessary data has to be transferred to the external computer. The service provider will then be able to open the system data at site and process it in accordance with the task at hand.
Depending on the work that needs to be carried out, luxData.desktop may be set up in such a way that the engineers or service providers are only able to view the data on a need to know basis.
luxData.desktop may also be set up in such a way that technicians are only able to edit certain entries. Once it has been input, the data may be imported into luxData.licht and then synchronised with the data that already exists there.


Such data may be exchanged between luxData.licht and luxData.desktop by LAN, email, WLAN and USB stick. luxData.licht possesses an interface that allows previously selected data to be written to a prepared Access database.
Access databases differ in that they may be designed to handle other tasks – e.g. data input, mast inspections, data checking. The respective databases may be saved to previously defined paths. The appropriate settings may be implemented for user groups or individual users. The corresponding settings may be found under user management.

data capture and data modification with GPS-coordinates

Customer Toughbooks or laptops may be equipped with USB GPS transmitters to enable GPS coordinates to be recorded. Such accessories permit lamp coordinates to be recorded at site. The coordinates are saved in the WGS84 format and are then available for import for processing in luxData.licht. All the lighting points recorded along with their GPS coordinates can be displayed in the integrated GIS by luxData.licht and in (optional).
