Things to Know Before Installing Solar Street light
In the infrastructure construction of the new countryside, solar streetlights have also begun to be installed on both sides of the rural roads. Nowadays, solar streetlights have become the main force of road lighting in the new countryside. Solar streetlights are composed of batteries, solar panels, controllers, etc. It is not a simple matter to configure a suitable solar streetlight. Streetlight manufacturers with vast experience is better at configuring the light system. Before installing solar streetlight, there are some things that we need to know. Read this article and you will know the answer.
1. Lighting requirement
Solar streetlight is designed for outdoor road lighting. The first thing we need to determine is the lighting hours and the how bright the lamp need to be. Only with lighting hours and the brightness of the lamp,the solar streetlight professional can design a suitable solar lamp. With these two parameters, we can advice the capacity of the solar panel and rechargeable battery. Except for this, we should figure out whether the solar streetlight is only used for illumination or also need for landscaping. If the streetlight is installed in public roadway or parks, the suitable of street lamp installation distance is usually 10-15 meters.
2. Quality of lighting fixture
Led lighting fixture is adopted by the solar streetlight manufacturer. The lifespan of LEDs can be 50000 hours. Ensure that the solar streetlight source can dissipate heat normally, which can effectively extend the service life of the light source. If the solar road lamp has poor heat dissipation, it will accelerate the lifespan of the LED lamp, and affect the lighting effect. Long-term poor heat dissipation will increase the LED light attenuation; and the accumulation of heat will cause the lamp holder and other related equipment to age and affect the use . Therefore, the LED solar street lamp needs to dissipate heat, and the lamp body must use all aluminum lampshades.
3. Working stability of solar streetlight
Ensure the working stability of the solar streetlight. Solar streetlights will not suddenly go out during normal use. If this happens, it may be caused by problems with internal wiring or insufficient battery power supply. Therefore, after eliminating internal problems, ensuring stable lighting is achieved in the rainy weather. When the light is good, there should be no obstructions on the solar panel so that the solar panel can absorb solar energy. If the solar panel cannot fully absorb solar energy, there will not be enough solar energy to be converted into electricity, and it will not be able to provide enough lighting in continuous rainy days.
4. Reasonable solar streetlight configuration
When solar streetlight manufacturers configure street light system, they must do a reasonable configuration work according to the actual local conditions. While reducing costs for customers, it is also necessary to ensure the good application of solar streetlights in rural road lighting. Both the solar panel and the battery capacity need to be configured according to the number of consecutive rainy days in the local area and the lighting time required by the customer. Be sure to use accessories produced by regular manufacturers, otherwise a series of problems will occur during short-term use. The installation of solar streetlights in the new countryside can only achieve good improvements in rural road infrastructure if energy conservation and cost reduction are achieved.
5. Choose right installation place
Solar streetlights use sunlight as energy, and then convert it into electrical energy and store it in a battery. At night, the battery is powered to provide lighting. Therefore, during the installation process, be sure to choose a place where there are no obstructions around. The solar panels should be cleaned regularly to ensure that the solar panels can work normally and absorb sufficient solar energy.
Pay attention to the above points when installing and using solar streetlights, so that the street lights can play the greatest role. Provide more convenient living conditions for people in the new countryside
