Practical, stylish and cost effective. SolarCase post-mounted solar lit sign casings provide dusk to dawn illumination of posters, transport schedules and other signage at bus stops, railway stations, cinemas, museums, business premises etc. with no obtrusive solar panels and no need for mains electricity connection.
During the day, the display cases are not normally illuminated. At night, the light remains at a low level until activated by the infrared sensor on approach of people, at which time the illumination intensity increases to the maximum level.
SolarCase is exceptionally useful in locations where conventional street lighting and mains electric supply does not exist or would be prohibitively expensive to install.
Photovoltaic cells are inset into the square posts, sitting flush with post profile and sealed behind UV stabilized tempered glass.
The SolarCase posts and frame can be supplied with a powder coating finish in any RAL color.
SolarCase enclosures are rated as IP66 according to international standard EN 60529 - 'dust tight' and protected against heavy seas or powerful jets of water.
SolarCase PV solar cells are located on the sides of the posts, providing an exceptional power generating capacity without the need for visually intrusive, flat panel solar arrays.
With an area of 465 sq. in., the unobtrusive solar cells generate sufficient power for illuminating the signage for up to 14 days without daylight.
SolarCase will provide constant, high performance, white 180 lumens per watt night lighting from dusk until dawn.
Batteries can last up to 10 years and can be disabled when not in use.
The SolarCase control system uses an algorithm to maximize the power generated from each solar panel. The optimum power point of the panels is calculated in real time to capture energy efficiently and harvest the maximum power from each panel.
Battery management technology mitigates full discharge by reducing the LED brightness until there is sufficient ambient light to charge.
The SolarCase control system monitors ambient light levels. During the night, a high efficiency 180 lumens-per-watt white LED illuminates. The brightness of the LED is set at a reduced light level until activated by infrared sensors. On approach, the LED brightens for 10 seconds, gently dimming back to the lower level.
Trenching for electrical wires along a pathway can quickly become expensive. This cost can escalate rapidly if other challenges arise like rocky terrain.
Any trenching means disruption of the site, access restriction and the cost of subsequent ground remediation, vegetation replacement and landscaping works. With Solarcase, only individual footings for side posts need to be installed.
With less work in site preparation, electrical connections and site remediation, SolarCase illuminated signs can be installed in just a fraction of the time compared with mains powered illuminated signage.
