Light masts are tall upright posts with several big lights on top them to illuminate reasonably large areas. Mini mast lights are typically mounted on poles that are 10 to 12 meters tall with multiple light fixtures, for transportation, storage and pedestrian safety. The lighting typically consists of a ring surrounding the pole with the light fixtures mounted around it. Mini masts are often used by municipal authorities and in fields, roundabouts, ports, toll plazas, warehouses, construction sites, parking lots, stadiums, etc.
Solar street light are a more cost-effective choice for mini masts because of their multiple unending benefits. They can be installed within a day as they are wireless and do not require any power grid connections. When installed at considerable heights, solar street lights can render uniform illumination to the entire area. A higher light output is required to light up large areas and solar street lights are the energy-saving outdoor lighting option for mini masts. They do not emit heat or any toxic gases as they operate using renewable solar energy.
Solar street lights switch on and switch off automatically and operate from dusk to dawn, consuming no grid electricity at all. The components have a longer life expectancy and the lights do not require frequent inspection or maintenance, making them a practical and unchallenging lighting solution for mini masts. Solar street lights will continue to illuminate the installed areas even during power outages. Installation time and costs of mini masts can be relatively higher; however, considering the long-term benefits and the money saved on operations and maintenance, solar street lights are a smart alternative.
Types of solar street lights
Tapetum India Solar offers the following solar street lights that are suitable for mini masts.
Mini masts with all in one solar street lights with motion sensors can be used in areas where there is no much movement at night. The lights will glow up only when they detect a movement nearby and remain dim otherwise. They can be easily mounted as they are compact in size and there is no additional wiring needed. All in one solar street lights are priced very reasonably with in-built solar panel, battery and LED.
All in One Solar Street Light 7 Watt Owl Series:
In-built components include 6-Watt solar panel, 7-Watt LED with 1120 Lumens and 3.2 volts 10 AH LiFePO4 battery.
All in One Solar Street Light 10 Watt Owl Series:
Components include 10-Watt solar panel, 10-Watt LED with 1500 Lumens and 3.2 volts 18 AH LiFePO4 battery,
All in One Solar Street Light 15 Watt Owl Series:
The main components are 15-Watt solar panel, 15-Watt LED with 2200 Lumens and 3.2 volts 24 AH LiFePO4 battery.
Integrated solar street lights are ideal for mini masts as they work the whole night. These lights use intelligent sensor control system where they are designed to operate in full brightness for the first 4 to 5 hours and later work at a reduced brightness until morning. Since the solar panels come as a separate unit, the installation of integrated solar street lights is slightly different than installation of all in one solar street lights.
Integrated solar street light 15 watt Bat Series:
This light is made up of in-built 30-Watt solar panel, 15-Watt LED with 2400 lumens, 3.2 volts 24 AH LiFePO4 battery and MPPT controller.
