Abstract — Street lighting is an important facility needed to support traffic and environmental security, regional orientation, city accessories, economic activities, and people’s mobility at night. Nowadays automation of the street lighting or smart street lighting is applied to save energy consumption. However, the use of smart street lighting can cause electromagnetic emission which at a particular level can interfere with other equipment around it and cause them not to work optimally. This research observed the conducted emission of smart street lighting by applying three different treatments to the sample. The test method used for the measurement refers to CISPR 15:2013 standard. The results showed the value of 49.98 dBuV when no treatment applied, 48.88 dBuV with a rearrangement of the cable connecting remote terminal unit (RTU) to LED lamps, and 48.73 dBuV with the addition of ferrite absorber.
