Solar energy is green and environmentally friendly, inexhaustible, non-polluting and renewable. Solar power has unparalleled advantages, clean, pollution-free, very safe, and solar energy is more extensive and sufficient than other energy sources. Solar flood light uses sunlight as energy source. During the day, solar panels charge the battery, and at night, the battery powers the light source. There is no need to lay cables, AC power supply, and no electricity bills when using solar flood lights. Its advantages include, but are not limited to, stability, long life, high luminous efficiency, easy installation and maintenance, high safety performance, energy saving and environmental protection, economical and practical. It can be widely used in city streets, communities, factories, parks, parks, parking lots and other places.
How many kinds of solar led flood lights?
There are different kinds of solar flood lights, such as solar wall motion sensor light, all in one solar flood light, split solar flood light, PIR motion sensor solar flood light…
According to the different structural design, solar flood lights are divided into integrated solar flood lights and split solar flood lights. Among them, the integrated solar flood light has a simple structure and is convenient for transportation and installation.
According to the performance of the lamps, it can be divided into solar motion sensor flood light and constant bright solar light. The solar motion sensor flood light will maintain full brightness only when it detect the human motion, which saves a lot energy, but it is not suitable for some areas that need high brightness light.
According to different usage scenarios, solar flood lights can be divided into solar wall washer flood lights, solar billboard floodlights, solar courtyard flood lights and so on.
What’s the working principle of solar led flood lights?
In the daytime, solar photovoltaic panels are irradiated by sunlight, absorb solar energy and convert it into electrical energy, which is stored in the battery pack through the solar controller. When night comes, the intensity of sunlight shining on the photovoltaic panel gradually decreases, and the voltage of the photovoltaic panel decreases accordingly. When it reaches a certain voltage, the solar controller controls the battery to supply the LED light source to realize the lighting function. When dawn arrives, the voltage of the photovoltaic panel gradually rises. When it reaches the characteristic voltage, the controller interrupts the power supply to the LED light source. The solar controller can control the charging and discharging of the storage battery, and the turning on and off of the LED light source. And it can ensure that the battery pack is not damaged due to overcharge or over-discharge. At the same time, it also has functions such as light control, time control, temperature compensation, lightning protection, and reverse polarity protection.
Main components of solar led flood light
Solar flood light is a set of independent solar system, which is composed of LED light source, solar photovoltaic panel, battery, solar controller, structural support, etc.
Solar Photovoltaic Panels
Solar photovoltaic panels are the core part of solar floodlights and the most valuable part of solar floodlights. Its function is to convert the radiant energy of solar energy into electric energy, and then send it to the storage battery for storage. Among many solar photovoltaic panels, the common and practical ones are monocrystalline silicon solar photovoltaic panels, polycrystalline silicon photovoltaic panels, and amorphous silicon photovoltaic panels. In low-latitude areas with sufficient sunlight and good sunlight conditions, the use of polycrystalline silicon photovoltaic panels can effectively reduce costs. Because the production process of polycrystalline silicon photovoltaic panels is simple, the price is lower than that of silicon photo
voltaic panels. In areas with more rainy days and insufficient sunlight, it is recommended to use monocrystalline silicon photovoltaic panels, because monocrystalline silicon photovoltaic panels have higher power generation efficiency. The power generation efficiency of amorphous silicon photovoltaic cells is relatively low, but in the case of insufficient light such as rainy days, the power generation efficiency is higher than that of crystalline silicon photovoltaic panels.
Solar Controller (Motion Sensor Optional)
No matter what kind solar lamp, it must have a good performance charge and discharge controller. Coordinating the work of solar panels, storage batteries, and LED loads is a very important component in integrated solar street lights. It can make the entire solar flood light systemoperate efficiently and safely. And comes with various protection functions: solar panel reverse connection protection, prevent the battery from discharging to the solar panel at night, battery overcharge and over-discharge protection, LED output short circuit protection, LED output open circuit protection, etc.
In addition, the solar flood light controller also has intelligent driving LED lights. For example, constant current drives LED lights to maintain the same brightness. Light control function-automatically turn on the LED lights at dark and turn off the LED lights at dawn. Multi-segment time control, human body sensing function, delayed human body sensing function, dimming function, different power output for each period, morning light function, etc.
The solar flood light system must be equipped with a battery. The solar energy is stored in the battery during the day, and then the battery is discharged to the LED lamps at night. There are four main options for solar floodlight batteries currently in the market: lead-acid batteries, gel batteries, ternary lithium batteries and lithium iron phosphate batteries.
1. Lead-acid battery: The electrode of lead-acid battery is composed of lead and lead metal oxide, and the electrolyte is sulfuric acid solution. The key advantages of lead-acid batteries are relatively stable working voltage, low price and high safety factor. The disadvantage is that lead-acid batteries have a relatively short life and large volume, which can cause environmental pollution. However, due to its cost advantage, it still occupies an important position in the solar lamp manufacturing industry.
2. Gel battery: It is an upgraded version of lead-acid battery, no maintenance and less maintenance. Compared with lead-acid batteries, it replaces sulfuric acid electrolyte with colloidal electrolyte, which gradually improves its storage capacity, charge-discharge capacity, safety factor and service life. In addition, the entire temperature range of the gel battery is wide, and it can be used in the temperature range of -40°C-65°C. The ultra-low temperature characteristics are better. Therefore, the gel battery is the best choice for high-latitude cold regions or low-dimensional tropical regions. The performance is also very good and can be safely applied to various extreme standards.
3. Ternary lithium battery: The ternary lithium battery has many advantages, high specific performance, small size, fast charging, and high price. Its deep cycle is about 500-800 cycles, its service life is similar to that of gel batteries, and its application temperature range is -15°C -45°C. However, ternary lithium-ion batteries also have disadvantages and have a poor safety factor. If the internal battery is unstable, or the manufacturer of the ternary lithium-ion battery is only shut down, it is likely to explode under overcharge or high-temperature natural environments.
4. Lithium iron phosphate battery: high specific energy, small size, fast battery charging, long life, and good reliability. It is widely used in the field of power batteries, such as electric buses. But its price is the highest among all rechargeable batteries.
What’s the working mode of solar led flood lights?
Manual working mode
The solar flood lights that can be controlled via the remote controller by the user, they are generally used in household solar flood lights. In your house, people hope that the solar flood lights can be controlled by switches like the city circuit lights. Therefore, the solar flood light manufacturers have developed a special energy for household solar flood lights. A household solar flood light that controls the lights on and off at any time with a controller.
Dimming working mode
Time-controlled on/off is a common control method for solar flood lights, which is to set the lighting time through the controller in advance. The flood light will be automatically turned on at night, and automatically turned off or dimmed after the specified time . This control method is relatively reasonable, which can not only control the cost of solar flood lights, but also extend the service life of solar flood lights.
Human body induction dimming mode
Solar flood light with motion sensor mean the lamp integrated a body motion sensor. When the human body movement is detected, the solar flood light will automatically adjust to full power output. When no one is moving, the solar flood light will be adjusted to dim or turn off. This can avoid unnecessary waste of power, save battery energy, and extend the lighting time.
Constant brightness working mode
In this working mode, the solar flood light can work continuously with constant brightness. A highly configured solar floodlight can work continuously all night with constant brightness.
