This system includes three LED sign light fixtures fitted with a 15" extension arm. Perfect for illuminating many types of commercial signs from above. Set for dusk to dawn or timed lighting mode. An additional light fixture is available as an option. Supplied with solar panel, batteries, charge controller and all other necessary components.
This unique system comprises of three light fixtures which are each supplied with a 3W LED bulb producing 330 Lumens and an approximate 45 degree beam spread. An additional light fixture may be added to this system as an option. The lights will automatically activate at dusk will typically run to dawn with three lights in use. For installations in locations that experience harsh winter weather, or low sun levels, a higher powered solar panel may be required. This system is supplied with a MPPT charge controller that improves solar charging efficiency, and offers addition light control features including a dual timer setting. The kit is supplied with a 70 Watt solar panel which can be installed on the sign structure or nearby. A lockable battery box is included to facilitate the two 12V batteries which is recharged daily via the solar panel. The light fixtures come pre-wired with plenty of cord with simple connections that plug into the battery box. Color of the lamp is silver. Color of other parts of the system are gray. Color of light output is white.
This style of light is perfect for restaurant signs, storefronts, and traditional hanging signs. Our solar LED sign light systems are perfect for sites where electricity is unavailable or where it would be too difficult or too costly to install an electric supply. They are also suitable for retro-fit applications where electrically powered fixtures are being removed in an effort to save money and no longer use the utility supply.

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.
All connections are simply plug & play.
Subject to warranty registration, a limited 20 year solar panel warranty applies and a limited 5 year warranty on all other components (excluding batteries). Battery warranty (if applicable) is with the battery manufacturer.* Warranty registration is required (after purchase), otherwise a standard 30 day limited warranty will apply. After making your purchase, go to www.solarilluminations.com/registration to register your warranty.
Additionally, unlimited, lifetime technical support is available for all warranty registrations.
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 usually set facing South at an appropriate 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.
