The batteries, solar regulator and control equipment are typically mounted in a steel enclosure located at the base of the pole. Tamper resistant lockable handles can also be incorporated.

System Operation

The light automatically activates at the onset of dusk and is powered through the night by long-life deep cycle batteries stored at the base of the pole. At sunrise, or after an adjustable number of hours, the light turns off and the solar panels will recharge the batteries until full again. A robust maximum power point tracking (MPPT) solar regulator extracts the best performance possible from the solar panels and ensures that the batteries are charged in a fully optimised manner, promoting long battery life. The regulator controls the activation of the light and can be setup with a variety of light interval regimes to suit the application.

Power System

Our light systems are designed to run reliably throughout winter and stretches of poor weather and deliver continuing performance year after year. The solar modules carry a full 25 year warranty and only high quality, American made, maintenance free gel batteries are used to ensure long service life and maximum performance.

Luminaires

The 30W and 50W LED lamps supply a broad spreading light suitable for illuminating parks, walkways, carparks, loading areas, advertising displays and endless other applications. The 100W LED luminaire offers an intense light output that can run for up to 7 hours every night, 13 hours every second night, or for 3 nights in a row with a 3 day recharge. Fluorescent T5, HID spotlight and other light types may also be incorporated for specialised applications.

Pole Structure

Light poles can be supplied as either hot dip galvanised or with a powdercoat paint finish in a variety of colours. Outreach arms and solar panel mounting brackets can be rotated throughout 360° to suit the specific requirements of the site. SPA solar light components can often be retrofitted to existing lights and light poles, and we welcome all enquiries regarding custom designs and needs.
