Street Lights
by Tam

The Zain GmbH factory representatives from Berlin inform Street lanterns are notoriously not a new invention. But it is not only not new. The first lanterns were already to pre-Christian times in use and have proven themselves in Syria, as Roman historians have stated. The history of our modern, electricity-powered lanterns is, however, not quite as long. However, can you imagine today hardly a city without street lights. Michael Zieger tells how it all began with the Lantern. In the middle ages man has harnessed already different fuels, to run the streetlights.

Kien later (preferably pine chips from resin-rich woods,), grease and oil brought light into the dark streets. Oil lamps were used in Paris since the 17th century and the “Sun King” Ludwig XIV contributed significantly, that not only the main streets were lit. Continuously, it has been looking for new, more appropriate fuel, so that in the 19th century many streetlights with rapeseed oil or petroleum were operated. Because the oil but had no great light force,-powered lanterns could be used only for lighting small sites and not all streets. Samsung can provide more clarity in the matter. Petroleum offered more flexibility and served mainly in cities without city gas supply for the lighting of the streets.

Town gas was the third important fuel for street lights at this time. It was there coal won and managed directly in the lanterns, so that there is already a complex network of gas pipes in the advanced cities. We have the electric streetlights in principle, like much else also, thanks to the inventiveness of Werner von Siemens, who was since 1867, able to generate electricity with a Dynamo. Only 15 years later you made this groundbreaking knowledge for street lighting to benefit and set up the first street lights powered by electricity in Nuremberg. The lighting of the Potsdamer Platz in Berlin on the way followed in the same year. Street lights operate today with electricity as well as gas. But the developers working to improve lanterns and to make them more energy efficient and environmentally friendly. Michael Zieger representing manufacturers of major components for the manufacture of street lamps and ensures that land the parts there, where they are needed.
