How to Perform the Daily Maintenance Work of Road Lights Effectively?

To strengthen the maintenance and management of road lighting facilities, ensure the integrity and safe operation of road lighting facilities, improve management standards, ensure safe and reliable operation of the lighting power system, and accurately arrange maintenance and repair plans according to the quantity of road lighting facilities, to ensure that lighting facilities within the responsible range operate normally with a brightness rate of 98% and create a good living and working environment for the general public, the maintenance system for daily road lighting poles and lamp fixtures is provided below for your reference.

Conduct daily and nighttime inspections of LED road lights and keep inspection records:

  • Regular inspections: Conduct regular inspections of road lights at least once a week and keep records.

  • Special inspections: Conduct special inspections of road lights in the event of typhoons, heavy rain, holidays, abnormal lines, tripped circuits, and other situations, and keep records. Generally, safety hazards are to be dealt with within 24 hours and fault handling records are to be filled out in a timely manner. For special safety hazards, implement on-site protective measures, fill out handling records, report to leaders, propose solutions, and eliminate safety hazards as soon as possible. Keep inspection records.

Conduct regular inspections and cleaning of the LED road light central monitoring system equipment, road light distribution rooms (phases), tools, and environmental sanitation every week. Tools should be placed in a standardized and orderly manner and the environment should be clean and tidy. Regularly apply anti-rust paint to prevent rusting.

During LED road light facility maintenance and repair, conduct comprehensive and careful inspections of LED road lights, cables, and other equipment. When using a temporary power line to connect the power plug to the lamp for repair, an electric shock protection device may be installed as necessary to prevent electric shock.

Maintenance of the LED road light main cable. Common causes of power cable failures are insulation aging and deterioration, cable overheating, corrosion of protective layers, and cable installation processes.

  • In terms of the manufacturing process of intermediate and terminal joints, strengthening entry cable attachment testing should be carried out in strict conformity with relevant regulations. When stripping the sheath, insulation shielding layer, and semiconductor layer, careful operation should be conducted, thoroughly grinding and cleaning the insulation surface to prevent impurities from remaining on the insulation, and keeping the humidity of the installation environment below 70%.

  • A series of specific regulations must be established for cable installation. The armoring layer and copper shielding layer must be separately grounded, and the cross-sectional area must not be less than 25 square millimeters. A single-core cable must be grounded at one end of the power-receiving terminal, whereas a three-core cable must be grounded at both ends. The cable wires should be tinned to prevent the cables from being damaged by external forces. Protective tubes can be used to protect the stressed parts, and the intermediate joint can be externally fixed to protect it. During maintenance, ensure that the cable wires are not twisted or deformed by external forces. If it is necessary to twist them, measures should be taken to make the surface smooth. When a construction team is working near the cable, increase conspicuous signs, and if necessary, remind construction personnel.

  • Cutting joints: Before cutting joints, it is important to inspect whether there is water or moisture in the joints. If there is, a welding torch cannot be used to cut the joint due to the heating of the torch causing moisture to move towards the inside of the cable from both sides of the joint. It is better to cut open the sleeve. If there is no moisture or water, lead sleeves can be heated and opened using a welding torch to remove dirt, clean rust spots, and wipe away soldering slag, moving the material away from the cable connection if necessary for future use.

The maintenance and management of LED road light lighting facilities should follow the following principles:

  • Adhere to the safety-first policy and make ensuring the safe and reliable operation of road lighting in the factory area the primary task of road lighting maintenance management.

  • Adhere to the combination of design, manufacturing, and use; maintenance and repair; repair, transformation, and updating; professional management and public management; technical management and economic management.

  • Adhere to reliable technological progress and use scientific and technological innovation as the driving force. Promote the application of modern road lighting management concepts and natural scientific and technological achievements to realize scientific, standardized, efficient, and economical road lighting management.
