Our enclosed light fixtures are great for sheltered locations where electricity is unavailable or too expensive to install. Choice of lamp options.

This weather-poof, vandal resistant shelter/canopy lighting system has several options for you to choose from. We offer the system with a choice of lamp power from 5W, 10W, 15W, or 20W. With a choice of lamp length, 2ft or 4ft. This kit is available with one or two lamps per system. Each lamp produces from 690 to 2640 lumens subject to power selection. The system is supplied complete with the light fixtures, two 12 Volt rechargeable batteries, a metal lockable battery enclosure, an MPPT charge controller, and a choice of solar panel along with standard mounting hardware. For installations in locations that experience harsh winter weather, or low sun levels, a higher powered solar panel may be required depending on operation requirements. Please consult with our engineers for specific solar power recommendations. The comprehensive light control system allows for extensive configuration, including dynamic activation and optional dimming. Lighting activation is controlled by the charge controller and solar panel. 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 they can be mounted away from the battery box if needed. The entire system is designed to be easily installed and uses quick connections. Color of product is gray. Color of other parts of the system is gray. Color of light output is white.

Control Module
Supplied with a MPPT charge controller which automatically controls the solar panel power, battery charging and lighting function and operation.
Ultra-fast Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT).
The MPPT controller will improve energy harvest by up to 30% compared to PWM charge controllers. Especially in the case of cold cloudy winter weather, when light intensity is changing continuously.
This controller features the very latest smart technology.
Offers full programmability of load output: dusk to dawn, multi-timed mode, and integrated diming (all standard features).
Provides extended battery life and extra protection against excessive battery discharge and overcharge.
Intelligent battery management software is used to protect the battery from being excessively discharged. The controller will monitor the state of charge on the battery, and if needed, day by day slightly increase the load disconnect level (i. e. disconnect the load earlier) until the harvested solar energy is sufficient to recharge the battery to nearly the full 100% at least once a week. Allowing for the longest life possible from the batteries.
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.
The dimming option or any other illumination mode can be used in conjunction with motion activation (where applicable).
Dimming may be at any percentage from 0-100%.
Supports real time data monitoring, 30 day performance history, and user programmability from Apple or Android smartphones, tablets, etc. Use of this feature requires the optional MPPT Bluetooth Dongle.
Peak efficiency is 98%.
Multi stage adaptive charge algorithm.
Automatic temperature compensation.
Protection feature includes battery reverse polarity (fuse), output short circuit and over temperature.
Operating temperature is -22 deg. F (-30 deg. C) to 140 deg. F (+60 deg. C).
Humidity up to 95%, non condensing.
Protection rating IP22 (connection terminal area).
Dimensions are approx. 4” x 4” x1.5” (10cm x 10cm x 4cm).

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 fully charged batteries should be connected to the MPPT charge controller first, followed by the solar panel(s).

Installation
Easy to install. All connections are simple and quick.
Mounting frames are included to allow the solar panel to attach to a vertical or horizontal surface.
Easy to install into almost any type of shelter, canopy, or car port.

Remarks
 

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.
