Innovation has made this possible. Integrated solar street light is the new age compact lighting solution which integrates solar panels, LED luminary, lithium ion battery & a PIR motion sensor into one. This integrated solar street light incorporates LED driver technology, world-class battery charging technology along with high efficiency microprocessor based electronics.
Smart Solar Street Lighting
This solar street light also uses a PIR motion sensor for intelligently adjusting the brightness of the LED light. When detecting any movement around the light, the LED luminary glows at full brightness. The brightness automatically reduces when there is no movement detected. Coupled with a maintenance free lithium ion battery, this smart solar street light provides longer back up time & better battery life as well. It is compact in size & can easily be mounted on a pole top. Integrated solar street lights also have automatic dusk to dawn operation & requires negligible maintenance following installation. They are made of high quality materials to suit the environment where they are to be installed.
Features of Smart Solar Street Lighting
Components of an Integrated Solar Street Light
There are 4 main parts to an integrated solar street light.
- Solar Panel – This is one of the most important parts of an integrated solar street light. Solar panels will convert solar energy into electricity. There are two types of solar panels which are available; mono-crystalline & poly-crystalline. While conversion rate of poly-crystalline solar panels is poor in comparison to mono-crystalline solar panels.
- LED Fixture – This is commonly used as the luminary of a modern solar street light. LED fixtures provide higher lumens with low consumption of energy. Energy consumption of LED fixture is just about half of what traditional HPS fixtures require. Lack of warm up time also allows LEDs for use of motion detectors which eventually add up on efficiency.
- Rechargeable Battery – Connected to the solar panel, batteries are involved in storing electricity during the day & for providing electricity to the fixture during the night. While the capacity of the battery will affect backup days of the light, the life cycle of the battery is a very important factor. Lithium ion batteries are most popular these days as they are compact in size & integrate well within the street light.
- Mounting Pole – Since there are components mounted on top of the pole, strong poles are necessary for all street lights. Solar panels, fixtures & batteries are an integral part of a solar street light. PV panels & all electronics are integrated into the pole itself in some newer designs. Wind resistance is another factor which should be accounted for while installing a solar street light.
JOHO and Terled Solar Street Lights
All in one solar street light is a smart solar street lights from Joho and Terled. Integrated solar street light is gaining popularity these days. The solar panel, LED light & lithium ion battery are all fit together in a compact way. The entire unit is weather proof & it also enhances protection of battery against theft. Operation costs of solar street lights are minimized since they are independent of the local grid. They also require less maintenance in comparison with the conventional street light. Risk of accidents is minimal because external wiring is eliminated. Solar power is never-ending green source of energy which is available for free.
