Your own riding arena is a great privilage to have, but it's a huge bonus to be able to use it all year round after dark too. This solar powered arena light system is supplied with powerful lamps which are capable of illuminating an area up to 38m x 15m. The powerful floodlight is fitted with special prescission optics for the LEDs to provide an expansive and uniform light distribution. That makes this product perfect for this application and for dressage, allowing riders use of their arena in the evening hours. Supplied as standard (with a 20W LED lamp), the system will allow for up to 5 hours of continuous nightly illumination (including during the winter). Various solar panel sizes are available for locations requiring higher powered options. This system is supplied with a metal lockable battery box, two 12 Volt rechargeable batteries, an MPPT charge controller, a 70 Watt solar panel, a 4m, 5m, or 6m galvanised steel column (root mount or flange mount), and column mount hardware. The battery box can be mounted at any height on the column, as desired. The LED floodlight can be positioned at any point on the column and has angle adjustment to enable the desired lighting pattern. As standard, this system is supplied with a manual on/off switch attached to the battery box. Other light switch options include a wired remote switch, and a wireless remote controlled switch. For multiple light installations, the option of wireless remote control allows all lights to turn on or aff at the same time for added convenience. This system is ideal for a horse riding arena, menage, equestrian facility or outdoor animal training area etc. An average sized arena would typically require at least four lighting systems. Colour of light fitting is black. Colour of other parts of the system are grey. Colour of light output is white.

Please note: Upon installation and power-up the controller goes into a 7 day evaluation mode where smart monitoring and configurations commence. Additional evaluation with self-managing adjustments may continue for up to 7 more days. This is all part of the smart feature that enables this intelligent controller to understand its use, the application, the surrounding environment and the current conditions. During this time some of its programmed features may differ temporarily. This is a perfectly normal process and must be accepted during that time. During this time the controller will adjust to the current condition and charge status of the batteries. It is therefore recommended that all batteries are 100% fully charged before connection using an appropriate battery charger. This may significantly reduce the evaluation mode time of 7+7 days to much less. The solar panel(s) should be connected to the MPPT charge controller first, followed by the fully charged batteries.

Generally, Solar Illuminations, carries all necessary spare parts to allow the servicing and maintenance of this product for the foreseeable future.
Please Note: This product is a special order and is non-returnable except in the event of a fault (during its warranty period) when the product, once returned will be repaired or replaced.
The solar panel must be installed in a location where it can receive full direct sunshine (when available) and set facing South at about a 45-60 degree angle (where adjustment options allow). The solar panel must not be installed in a shaded or part shaded location and never indoors. The standard specifications of the system (particularly the solar panel Wattage and battery capacity) may need to be adjusted. These components are determined by your geographic location, power consumption (LED Wattage) and the total amount of hours of illumination time required. Such changes to the standard specifications may increase or decrease the cost shown. Please contact us for more information or assistance. The illumination time is estimated and subject to various factors including (but not limited to) geographic location, seasons, temperature, weather conditions & location of product etc. The illumination time of most solar lights can reduce during winter months when the weather is poor and the days are shorter. During this time insolation hours decrease accordingly. Shorter illumination time due to one or more of the above factors does not define the product as being ‘defective’ or ‘not as described’. All solar lights must be used in a completely dark location at night time otherwise they may not illuminate. Nearby strong lighting sources or ambient lighting may affect the operation of a solar light. This does not define the product as being 'defective' or 'not as described'. Please note, if you do not install or use this product for several months the battery may discharge naturally on its own. By allowing a battery to deep discharge it may cause irreversible damage as the battery may then lose the ability to recharge or hold a full charge. Although unlikely, we reserve the right to supply this product with any minor alterations or minor changes to the specifications (shown above by text description or by photographs) due to different supplies or product batches received, incorporating such product changes made by the manufacturer, without further notice. Descriptions, specifications and photographs are updated regularly but may not be current when minor changes to a product have only recently been made.
