What should you pay attention to when installing solar street lights?

- Jan 26, 2019-

The solar street light is powered by crystalline silicon solar panels. The maintenance-free valve-regulated sealed battery (colloidal battery) stores electrical energy. The super bright LED lamp is used as a light source and is controlled by an intelligent charging and discharging controller to replace the traditional public electric lighting. Street lights, but solar street lights need to pay attention to some problems when installing, then, what are the general issues to pay attention to when installing solar street lights?

1. LED street light should be installed on sunny days. If it is installed in rainy days, it will only consume electricity and not charge after lighting, it will not meet the design requirements.


2. It should not be lit on the day of installation. In order to be eager to see the lighting effect, many engineers will turn on the light after the installation. Because the new battery is not fully charged at the factory time, if it is turned on after installation, it will not reach the design rainy days. The correct way is, after the installation is completed, the controller is connected, but the load is not connected. After charging for one day in the day after the next day, the load is connected in the evening, so that the capacity of the battery can reach a higher level. Of course, doing so will add a portion of the labor costs.


3. The angle of the battery board is generally designed by the factory at an angle of 45 degrees. This is to ensure a good charge in winter. However, the direction angle is determined by the installation. When the solar panel is assembled underground, it is found that the angle of the pole is deviated. If it is similar, it will not be adjusted. (Solar street light) Such an angle deviation, in addition to affecting the charging effect, will also affect the solar panel voltage under the same illuminance, which will result in a relatively large turn-on time error of the solar street light. Therefore, when assembling on the ground, try to adjust the azimuth of the solar panel to be consistent.


4. The connection of the controller. Waterproof controllers should be used as much as possible to ensure long-term stability while avoiding the user's free time to change the lighting time. If you use a controller that is not waterproof, the wiring is bent into a U shape with the terminal block facing down, which prevents water from dripping from the line into the controller. Try to convince customers to use better quality copper core wire. Due to the conductivity, the current and voltage will have a certain loss during the output process, which not only increases the power consumption, but also causes the LED driving power supply to fail to operate normally under severe conditions.
