Solar Street Light Installation Guide

Solar Street Light Installation Guide-Jiansheng Lighting

ⅠPurpose of this guide

This guide contains information regarding the installation and safe handling of solar street lights. All instruction should be read and understood before attempting to install. If there are any questions, please contact our sales department for further explanation. The installer should conform to all the safety precautions in the guide when and installing the lamps. Local codes should also be followed in such installation.

Before installing the solar street light, the installer should become familiar with the mechanical and electrical requirement for such a system. Keep this guide in a safe place for future reference (care and maintenance) and in case of sale or disposal of all the solar street lights


The solar street lamp installation is different from traditional one especially for solar panel and battery. The installation and construction procedure is as below: location selected, cement base pouring, preparation in field (battery placing, solar panel and bracket connection), post assembling (threading, light installation, panels and brackets mounting), pole lifting, battery connection, controller fixed, post location re-checked, and final inspection.

1. Location selected

(1).Field survey. Make sure no shelter around and enough lifted space (no high-tension cable surrounding)

(2).According to street lamp road installation standard and requirement, there are three decoration methods for fixing post. Unilateral, bilateral cross and bilateral symmetry three kinds. Post height are based on effective road width and decoration method, and separation distance are about the height and light illuminate angle (General is three times of height)

2.cement base pouring:

(1). Embedded part dimension.

According to factory providing information and our actual demand, we suggest post

height and embedded items dimension as below:

(2).Digging hole.

According to embedded parts dimension to ensure hole size, especially reserve enough

place for battery. Details as below:

(3). Cement base pouring.

Use C20 standard concrete to pour,and tamp cement base heavily with bobbing machine. When pouring, do not make concrete splash whereon screw rod to slow down installation. When threading PVC pipe, take as the drawing requirements to make sure no concrete inside. Notice there is 250mm gap between down pipe terminal to flat surface. Finally make sure the surface is horizontal with a tester to ensure four feet in the same level.

Ⅲ Preparation :

1.As the installation requirements, prepare all the necessary tools and list them

2.Transport and carry all the components listed, and check the quantity and models one by one.

Ⅳ Installation:

1. Battery installation.

Before operation, make sure battery models are the same as configuration listed (if a group, make sure connection method first. If in parallel, should not be over 4 pcs). Connect each terminal firmly and place them in battery cabinet. Seal the cabinet well with screws to avoid water seepage. Next put the cabinet in the hole and cover or bury it. What doing it, choose a fine day. After burying finish, check the voltage whether normal or not.

2. Mounting solar panel.

Fix the panel into the bracket firmly with screws and connect as the requirement (in series or parallel).After connection, make a test for the output voltage whether meet the installation. In general, the tested voltage should not lower than 18V in 12V system. If 24V system, the voltage not lower than 36V.

3. Post assembling

Check the installation position and direction. Confirm the length of wires stripping required. Each terminal should be peeled out 150mm in general. And then install lamp and check the position and levelness based on post. After wire connection, notice the positive and negative poles and inspect terminals whether fixed hard. All these done should

according to the drawing picture.

After finish lamp installation, use a multimeter to test the resistance and check there in no ground connection with the pole body. And then connect the battery to do light test.

4. Lifting.

Before lifting, prepare all the necessary tools, such as spray paint, Rohan pull, hammer, allen, screws and etc and clean the cement base. When lift the pole up to 1m high, .adjust direction of solar panel and fix it. Do make sure the direction face the south. Meanwhile, spray paint if possible.

In the process of lifting, notice the speed and direction, meantime, people should help pole up. Slowly drop the pole and give a right order to the hoist man. Keep screws symmetrical when tighten and use the Strength stem when fix M24 and above screws. The stem should not be less than 1.2m. Four feet should stand balance and upright.

5. Controller installation.

Operate as the manual instruction, battery connection first, load (light) second (light on or not, if on, check and change new one), solar panel last (observe light status. if off is normal. Some kinds have delayed function, off delayed for 3-5minutes is normal). When operation all these, do not mis-connect positive and negative terminals so as not to shock or destroy circuit. Close inspection window well.

6. Post location re-checked.

Finish above operations, re-check the post balance and stand level. Meantime, do antiseptic treatment for the screws and clean all the dirt on the post.

7. Re-check all the system.

Contains: light status, solar panel position and direction, stand level, quantity and etc.

8. Record lights situation and date.

Summarize and analysis the entire project items for further maintance reference.
