Our commercial grade solar sign lights system incorporates multiple, efficient LED tubes. Sold as a complete plug & play kit, including solar panel, MPPT charge controller, batteries, solar panel, and all other necessary components. Easy to install. Choice of lamp options.
This light system consists of four, five, six, seven, or eight weather proof 144 Cree LED light tubes, each providing 1152 lumens. The kit is supplied with a chosen number of lights, a metal battery box, a programmable MPPT charge controller, a 180 Watt solar panel with mounting brackets and two 12 Volt rechargeable batteries. For installations in locations that experience harsh winter weather, or low sun levels, a higher powered solar panel may be required. The battery box can be locked with a padlock (not supplied), and is fitted with outlets for the lamps and solar panel to easily connect to. When the system is assembled and connected, the lights will automatically turn on at sunset and illuminate until the programmed amount of time. 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. The solar panel and light fixtures are supplied with several feet of cable so that they can be installed a distance away from the battery box if required. The entire is system is simple plug & play installation. Color of product is white. Color of other parts of the system are grey. Color of light output is white.
Perfect for use where electricity is unavailable or where it is too expensive to install. This system can be used to internally light signs such as cabinets, notice boards, display cases, etc. The LED tube lights can be installed in any orientation within a sign, and because they do not get hot there is no chance of damaging any surfaces. System can be fitted as a new installation, or retro-fitted.

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.
Easy to install. All connections are simply plug & play.
A pair of triangle shaped support frames are supplied for the solar panel.
Purchase a FL40 pole mount kit to attach the solar panel and battery box to a pole.
Subject to warranty registration, a limited 20 year solar panel warranty applies and a limited 5 year warranty on all other components (excluding batteries).

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.
