1. Body – You can witness that in the Malaysian market solar street lights are very cost effective because their body is made up of plastic.
Point to be noted is that aluminium is always a better choice if budget allows to replace the plastic body with something better. Aluminium alloy is an even better option to be used in Malaysian weather conditions because it offers superior aging resistance, heat dissipation and corrosion resistance. Nevertheless, you may find even cheaper options in the market as there are manufacturers who are offering integrated solar street lights with plastic housings.
2. Power Storage and Supply with Lithium Battery – Without battery it won’t be possible to store and supply the electric current to the solar led street light. Battery is charged with the help of absorbed sunlight by the photovoltaic cell during the day time and is discharged at the night time whereas the controller controls this entire mechanism. Lithium batteries, lead-acid batteries and gel batteries are the usual types of batteries used for solar street lamps. Highly efficient batteries must offer the following benefits:
A. Higher charge rate
B. Strong deep discharge proficiency
C. Longer lifespan
D. Low-Battery self-discharge
Top rated manufacturers of solar street lights prefer using lithium batteries for being environment-friendly and having a longer lifespan. The best news is that SLM uses only brand new as well as high quality batteries for their all types of solar light indoor as well as outdoor products.
3. SLM Controller – Solar Light Malaysia (SLM) always uses LQR controllers with their solar lighting products. SLM controller is made to limit, increase, control output period and adjust the output power for the solar powered devices. Let’s have a closer look at these four important functions of the SLM Controller:
A. The very first function performed by an SLM controller is to limit the input voltage for the battery.
B. Secondly, its function is to increase the voltage when there is no output voltage which is necessary to bring the voltage to a certain level which is required by the solar lamp to be illuminated.
C. Another function of the SLM controller is to control the output period so that solar light should be turned on at specified time.
D. Lastly it functions to make adjustments in the output power for the solar light. For instance, it can adjust the output power to 100 watts when it is night time and 20 watts in the morning.
If you are in need of high-end Solar Street Lights, then SLM Solar Products equipped with the most refined MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) controllers can be your best bet. This highly proficient MPPT Controller detects output current of the main circuit and the voltage of direct current, measures the output power of the solar array while tracking the max power point.
4. Sensor Device for Solar Light – Solar Sensor device for the Integrated Solar Street Lights consist of human motion sensors, photovoltaic cells and radar sensors. SLM makes use of Intelligent Radar Systems in high-end outdoor solar spot lights, solar street lights as well as a variety of solar lighting products. This intelligent radar system detects the objects on the street. Usually it keeps the light at 30 percent brightness but as soon as something is detected near the solar lamp outdoors, it increases the brightness up to 100 percent which returns to 30 percent after half a minute.
5. Types of Solar Panels – Polycrystalline and monocrystalline are the two major types of solar panels. Basic function of the solar panel is to absorb the sunlight, convert into electric charge and store it into the battery. Conversion rate of the monocrystalline solar panels is certainly better (17%) than the conversion rate offered by the polycrystalline solar panels (12%). To offer the best results SLM only uses the brand new solar panels in all solar powered products.
6. Solar LED – Surface Mounted Diode (SMD) LED is the one of the most refined types of LED to be used to save energy. SMD LED produces the light within the solar light enabling the chip to significantly impact the cost of the solar LED light. To achieve a specific standard of light output and colour consistency, finest quality LED chips are designed. Have peace of mind while buying SLM products because we use SMD LEDs manufactured by the world class brands.
