Several Misunderstandings in the Installation of Solar Street Lights

Nov. 18, 2020

Solar street lights rely entirely on solar panels to generate electricity to maintain their lighting. Some grassroots construction workers do not understand the knowledge of solar street lights, and there are random installations, resulting in the solar panels being unable to charge or charging very little, so the street lights cannot be bright. The lamp time is very short. Today, solar street lights supplier summarizes several wrong installations of solar street lights with you, and I hope you can avoid similar problems.


There are too many obstructions in the installation place, resulting in a decrease in the charging efficiency of the solar panel.

For example, obstructions such as leaves and buildings block the light, which affects the absorption and utilization of light energy.

There is a reference light source next to the solar panel, which causes the charging voltage of the solar panel to be above the light control voltage point, and the light cannot be turned on.

For example, there are other street lights next to the solar street light, night falls, and the next street light turns on, causing the solar panel of the solar street light to detect the light source and mistake it for daytime. At this time, the controller will not let it turn on.

The solar panels are installed under the wires, branches, light poles, or other obstructions, causing a shadow on the solar panels during the day.

Because solar panels generally have multiple strings, if there is a shadow on a string of solar panels, and the shadow is relatively deep, if it is serious, this string is equivalent to an open circuit, and if the solar panel is too many If it is connected in series and parallel, this solar panel will not generate electricity.

Lamps are installed on both sides, and the solar panels are inclined to face to face.

For the sake of beauty, the installer may install the solar panels face-to-face symmetrically, but if one side is oriented correctly, the other side is definitely wrong. On the wrong side, the charging efficiency will be reduced because the light cannot directly reach the solar panel.

There is a problem with the angle adjustment of the solar panel, resulting in low solar panel charging efficiency.

The correct angle adjustment of the solar panel needs to follow a simple principle: let the sunshine directly on the solar panel so that the charging efficiency is maximized.

In different places, the tilt angle of the solar panel can refer to the local latitude, and the latitude is the horizontal tilt of the solar panel. Therefore, for different latitudes and different roads, it is quite critical that the solar panel angle is adjustable.

The solar panel is placed indoors for charging.

Some customers will install solar lights in the parking shed to facilitate parking at night, but also install solar panels in the shed so that the charging effect is naturally greatly reduced. In this case, we can use outdoor charging, indoor discharge, solar panels and lights Install in a separate way.

Freely extend the solar panel connection line.

In some locations, because the installation of solar panels causes too much interference, they simply separate the solar panels and the lights a long distance, and some customers are separated by a distance of 10 meters or more, and then randomly buy two-core wires on the market to connect them. That's it. Since the quality of the general wires on the market is not very good, and the distance between the wires is very long, the wire loss is large, so the charging efficiency will be reduced a lot, which will affect the lighting time.

On-site personnel will not use the engineering remote control correctly, and the light will not turn on due to incorrect parameter settings.

In addition, the biggest advantage of lithium battery solar street lights is to save expensive installation, construction and debugging, and product transportation costs. If you are interested in our products, please feel free to contact us.
