LED pitch illuminance systems are now common. The control system is very different from what may have been previously installed at stadiums with HID pitch illuminance systems. It is an integral element of the illuminance system operations that must be assessed and proven to be both reliable and resilient to failure due to various causes.

All LED pitch illuminance systems should have a master override switch (MOS) to operate the pitch illuminance system in the event of a control system fault or inappropriate operation (for any reason). The MOS must be completely independent and take precedence over the normal control system to switch the pitch illuminance system to full match operation conditions. It should be located in a secure facility, normally the stadium operations room.
