This system includes a powerful 144 LED floodlight (1152 Lumen), solar panel, battery box, batteries, choice of 3m or 4m root mount or flange mount steel column and all necessary hardware. Choice of one or two lamp system. Price from £999.99.
This column and floodlight package is perfect for lighting up areas up to about 18 metres x 18 metres. The entire system is plug & play for easy installation. The floodlight is fitted with 144 Cree® SMD/LEDs providing 1152 Lumens (equal to approx. 200W). Supplied as standard (with one lamp), the light will typically illuminate dusk to dawn for most of the year, and up to 8 hours in the winter months. If dusk to dawn illumination is required throughout the year, a higher powered solar panel and/or larger capacity batteries will be required. This system is supplied with a metal lockable battery box, two 12 Volt rechargeable batteries, MPPT charge controller, 100 Watt solar panel, a 3 or 4 meter galvanised steel column (root mount or flange mount), and column mount hardware for the system to attach to the top of the column. The floodlight can be positioned at any point on the pole and has angle adjustment to enable the desired lighting pattern. Fully automatic activation (on at dusk and off at dawn). The charge controller can be programmed to illuminate from dusk to dawn, turn off after a certain amount of hours, or it can use a dual timer option. The dual timer allows the light to activate at dusk and illuminate for X hours, switch off, and then turn back on for X hours prior to sunrise. An additional 10W LED floodlight can be added to this system as an option. When using two lamps the system would require activation by switch or PIR detector unless programmed to illuminate for a short period of time. This system can be supplied with a manual on/off switch instead of the automatic mode. It can also be supplied with a remote control on/off switch instead of the automatic on at dusk facility. Both of these features are optional extras and are available upon request. Colour of light fitting is black. Colour of other parts of the system are grey. Colour of light output is white.
Ideal for lighting up footpaths, driveways, playgrounds, public spaces, loading docks, small car parks, open areas and such like. Ideal for convenience and security lighting. Suitable for commercial or residential applications. Perfect for use where electricity is unavailable or too costly to install.
Manufactured in an ISO9001:2008 'Quality Assured' facility.
Illumination time is typically dusk to dawn for most of the year, and up to 8 hours in the winter.
If dusk to dawn illumination is required year-round, a higher powered solar panel and a larger capacity battery will be required.

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.
