2018, 3 street lamps installed on floor (approx. 1400x700x200), 3 U-shaped fluorescent tubes (58 watt), cement, animal husbandry dimmer, digital timer, 3 x 120 min. (one cycle)


Three street lights converted to digital ballasts and operation from a conventional Schoko plug by replacing the interior. A dimmer simulates the sunrise with approximately 8% residual light to 100% of the luminosity in a 30 minute cycle. The cycle rests at 100% for 30 minutes, then starts sunset simulation from 100% to 8%, followed by 30 minutes of rest at 8%. This completes one cycle.
