Solar street lights have swiftly emerged as an important component of modern cities. Powered by PV panels, solar street lights are raised light sources (LEDs or CFL lamps) mounted on lighting structure or integrated in the pole itself. Some of the key features of modern solar street lights include inbuilt lithium-ion batteries, controls that monitor input to and output from the batteries, and night and motion sensors.
An Innovative Solar Light
SSL-01 is an All-in-One Solar-Powered Street Light by Deelat Industrial which is fully automatic with integrated sensors, replaceable Lithium-ion battery, weather-proof, water-resistant, low insect attraction rate, low glare and longer life. The integrated solar panel converts sunlight into energy which is stored within the Li-ion rechargeable battery. The lighting system requires 9 hours of charging time. Designed to work throughout the night, it can provide lighting for 3-4 cloudy or rainy days on full charging.
Benefits of Lithium-Ion Battery
The presence of inbuilt Lithium-ion battery makes SSL-01 an attractive proposition for developing countries. The Lithium ion battery is fixed inside the system far up the pole making it relatively safe from potential thefts. Such a battery don’t need water-topping, get fully charged in only 5 hours and has an inbuilt battery management system.
Elegant and Integrated Design
With an elegant, integrated design in an aluminium alloy case, SSL-01 is equipped with 7W solar panel and 24 LEDs providing 1000 lumens brightness equivalent to 100W normal lamp. Nowadays, LEDs are being increasingly used as lighting source of modern solar street light, as they provide higher lumens with lower energy consumption. In addition, warm-up time of LEDs is negligible which allows use of motion detectors for additional energy efficiency gains. The presence of flat PV panels allows it to cope with high velocity winds in windy regions.
The key feature of SSL-01 is its PIR sensor which helps in optimal use of stored solar power. For the first 5 hours of night, the system will work at 300 lumens brightness. Afterwards, the intensity of the light will reduce to 150 lumens till dawn or until PIR sensor is activated by human movement. When people are 5-8 meters away from SSL-01, it automatically turns to 1000 lumens brightness with 30 seconds delay. This smart feature makes this device a perfect combination of renewable energy and energy efficiency.
SSL-01 solar street light is extremely easy to install and set-up. The device is installed at an optimal height of 2-5 to 3 meters from the ground and at a place which experiences direct sunlight for most part of the day. The light is fastened to the pole using a simple nut-bolt mechanism. The modular mounting bracket makes it suitable for a wide range of pole sizes. To provide light over a wide area, the lamp head comes with 1200 lighting angle.
SSL-01 solar lighting systems is an environment friendly and cost-effective option to light up courtyards, gardens, parks, streets, boulevards, highways, yards, compounds, boundary walls, car parks, wildlife sanctuaries, military and civilian security installations, airports, ports and other public spaces. Thus, this smart lighting system is well-suited for residential as well as commercial applications.
The use of solar power coupled with energy-efficient luminaries make SSL-01 a perfect choice for green lighting. The device can be used in a variety of domestic and commercial applications, including streets, parks, highways, beaches and airports for dusk-to-dawn operations. SSL-01 is especially crafted to give 30-50% more brightness as compared to other outdoor lighting systems and functions even during cloudy days. To sum up, SSL-01 is a low-energy, high-luminance, long-lasting, easy-to-install, maintenance-free and fully automatic smart solar lighting system which symbolizes clean energy, energy efficiency as well as environment protection.
