SPIRIT solar lighting is aiming to offer customers the best lighting solution. The configuration of products follow the requirements of illumination and perceived ambience. This is our way of working: form follows function.
During daytime, sunlight is converted into electric energy by photovoltaic technology – better known as solar panels. This energy is stored safely in an integrated battery, which guarantees sufficient lighting by efficient LED overnight – even with cloudy weather forecasts. This robust stand-alone solution is designed for a sustainable future, in both rural and urban areas. All with preservation of esthetics.
All SPIRIT solar lighting solutions are autonomous and so off-grid. The type will follow from the application and requirements – we extract that from our work approach.
- SPIRIT solar powered lighting column: Masts with single or double bracket to illuminate highways, streets and parks.
- SPIRIT solar powered lighting bollard: Bollards can ambiently enlighten parks and sidewalks.
- SPIRIT solar powered ground spot: Ground spots can ambiently enlighten parks by lighten up trees, art ornaments or buildings.
XS-type: XS2.8, XS3.8, XS1.11 & XS2.11
The smallest sized SPIRIT solar powered lighting columns, varying 4 up to 6.5 meters, are perfect for illumination of parks and sidewalks.
S-type: S3 t/m S5
The S-type, S3 t/m S5, mast vary from 6.5 up to 12 meters and are the solution for lighting streets – from single roads to multilane highways. This type can be executed with a single and double bracket.
L-type: L4 t/m L6
The L-type mast, L4 t/m L6, vary from 10 up to 15 meters and are the solution for lighting streets – from multilane highways and roundabouts. This type can be executed with double and quadruple bracket.
The SPIRIT ground spot is designed for highlight elements in your public environment, like trees, statues or building elements. The spots are placed besides the element – the light bundle is positioned in 30 degrees. The first models were successfully received at the introduction on Solar Middle East in Dubai.
The SPIRIT bollard is designed for public parks and sidewalks. The low columns, varying from 0.5 up to 1.2 meters, are positioned near the path, and so enlighten the area with ambiance. Energy facilitation by wiring is the bottleneck of integrating lighting in parks and is now eliminated. The introduction of the bollard as a product at the Solar Middle East in Dubai was very effective. Several projects are pending.
If none of our lighting solutions fits the best design, we can help you with a custom design.
The largest advantage of the SPIRIT product line is the independency – all products can be installed off-grid. In rural areas, lighting is easily installed, without constructing energy infrastructure first. Basic principle of the solutions: the sun is the energy source.
All products are conducted with solar panels as well as a battery system, all 12/24 Volt DC. Also – and this is unique – the luminair of the SPIRIT is in 12/24V DC. With exclusion of the centralized electricity grid, the need for conversion is eliminated. Losses and errors are considerably reduced.
The closer the product is to the equator, the better the optimum among energy generation and storage is. In the most ideal situation, the length of days equals the length of the nights, all year long.
The complete system is designed for extreme climatological environments and theft proof. High quality materials are used for maintaining functionality in extreme conditions, for example heat and dusty/sandy environments. The solar panels are theft proof integrated and the battery pack is in the foundation box, under surface level.
Technical data of these products can be retrieved, though differ per location due to sun radiation. The height of the mast defines the illumination (in lumen). For creating an optimal design, we advise clients to prepare a calculation of the illumination, uniformity and glare (for example in DIALux EVO). We support our clients with this (see work approach).
