What Data Do You Need to Know Before Purchasing Solar LED Street Lights?
As the saying goes, "if you want to get rich, you must first build roads". With roads comes the question of road lighting, and the installation of street lights is the first step. However, street lights require electricity, which means wiring is necessary. In rural areas, the geographical area is relatively large and the distribution of households is relatively loose, so wiring in rural areas is more difficult and costly. In addition, the electricity costs incurred during use increase costs invisibly, which is why the fundamental reason why the country has not solved the lighting problem of rural roads for many years. But with the advancement of technology, solar power generation technology is becoming more and more mature, and the combination of solar and LED street light heads fundamentally solves the biggest problem of traditional street lights installation in rural areas. Therefore, solar LED street lights have become the first choice in rural construction. So, do you know what data you need to know before purchasing solar street lights?
Things to note when buying solar street lights
The nature of the project (main roads, secondary roads, rural roads, town roads, residential areas, scenic spots, etc.).
Based on the above two data, we can recommend the height of the light post, the length of the support arm, the wattage of the light source, and the distance between the light posts. In general, if a single-sided placement of solar LED street lights is chosen, then the height of the street lights should be consistent with the width of the road (for example, a 6-meter road should choose a 6-meter light post). The distance between light posts is generally about 4 times the height of the light post and the final selection still needs to be based on the actual situation. Solar street light suppliers can help you solve the layout of the solar LED street lights based on these data.
Choose the wall thickness and caliber size of the light post, mainly depending on the local climate conditions and geological conditions.
Customers are most concerned about the lighting time and the continuous rainy days of normal lighting before purchasing solar LED street lights, and manufacturers usually ask this question. Based on this data, the solar street light supplier can calculate the appropriate solar panel power, battery capacity, and controller parameters.
Things to note when installing solar street lights
Pay attention to the selection of solar batteries. Because the temperature in the north in winter is low, it may even reach below minus 20 degrees Celsius. Solar lithium batteries are suitable for temperatures of minus 20 degrees Celsius and above, so lithium battery solar street lights are not suitable for installation in the northern regions, and traditional gel batteries with good low-temperature resistance are more suitable.
Keep the surface of the solar panel clean. In the north, there is a lot of rain and snow in winter, and the surface of solar panels is easily covered by snow. The covering of snow can easily lead to a decrease in the efficiency of solar panels, so it's important to clean the surface of the solar panel frequently.
Check the connection of the solar street light and its components. Due to the principle of thermal expansion and contraction, these connections should not be screwed too tightly, otherwise it may cause the connection part to break due to the cold temperature.
Only by knowing these data before purchasing solar street lights can solar street light suppliers configure the most reasonable and cost-effective products.
