A solar powered sign light system can illuminate a sign quick and easily without the expense of running power to your sign. Our solar kits include all the necessary equipment for a standard installation.
This system includes between one and four light fixtures that can be used for a single or double sided sign. The quantity of lights required will depend on the size and design of your sign. Please contact our sales department for assistance in determining the requirements for your sign.
The lights are designed for installation above the sign, each fitted with a 3W 330 lumen LED light. The system includes the light fixture(s), solar panel, AGM batteries, weather-proof battery enclosure, MPPT charge controller, necessary cables and solar panel mounting triangles.
Illumination time options are for up to 8 hours, or dusk to dawn. Additional illumination times are available upon request. 8 hour illumination systems can be set to a dual timer mode, providing two illumination periods during the night, totaling 8 hours.
Please contact our sales team to determine the appropriate sized solar panel and batteries for your system.

An optional Bluetooth dongle can be purchased to allow access to the charge controller history and programming options.
Ultra fast Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT).
The MPPT charge controller is typically 30% more efficient than standard PWM controllers and 10% more efficient to most other MPPT controllers.
Additional efficiency for cloudy weather and during times of reduced sun radiation.
Provides extended battery life and extra protection against excessive battery discharge and overcharge.
Low voltage detection for automatic disconnect.
Pre-programmed software for load output, dusk to dawn lighting, single timed lighting, dual timed lighting, dimming option and the ability of interfacing with motion detection, where required.
This MPPT charge controller is programmed by Solar Illuminations as per your requirements and system ability.
Lighting control features illumination from dusk to dawn (where applicable), or on at dusk for X amount of hours then off, or on at dusk for X amount of hours, then off, then back on again for X amount of hours before dawn.
Dimming option (where applicable) allows the lighting to dim at any time during the illumination time.
Battery voltage 12/24V dc auto select.
Rated charge current 10A/15A.
Operating temperature is -22 deg. F (-30 deg. C) to 140 deg. F (+60 deg. C).
All connections are simply plug & play.
Install solar panel in a location it will receive full direct sun light.
System requirements are based on solar panel angled at 15 degrees plus installation latitude.
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.
