Selection of Hardware in The Solar Led Street Light Design Guide
Part of the Solar led street light(CLASSIC) design guide is about choosing the mounting hardware. Solar modules are standard with 45° / 5° mounting brackets and battery pack mounting, however, fixtures need to be installed in all types of units. In addition, the rod type of project needs to be determined and evaluated.
The rod rises on one side of the bracket and is available in 4', 6' and 8' lengths. These are used for road and parking lot lighting where the fixture needs to be away from the pole due to backlash or other design requirements.
One side of the rod holder is available in 5" and 24" lengths that extend directly from the rod or wall. These can be used to secure the device close to the area of ??the rod for direct downward illumination.
The side of the horn bracket is typically used for flood applications where the luminaire illuminates and is away from the pole or area.
Decorative brackets for mounting the mounting rods, they have a variety of options, and understanding the visual requirements of the project will allow the selection of the best bracket for the project.
The direct-buried fixed bracket for ground-mounted flooding not only provides the location of the connecting line but also installs the fixture a little bit off the ground to ensure the safety of the landscape.
Aluminum or steel rod designed to meet the wind load requirements of solar modules. Both manufacturing processes take into account extreme life and offer options for powder coating and plating.
Anchor or directly buried rods are used in most applications. This option is determined by local project requirements. Direct burial is ideal for remote power systems, parks, and passageways where anchor bases are commonly used for parking lots and roads.
Other rods such as concrete and fiberglass composites can also be used in solar lighting applications.
Each bracket and rod selection should be designed to meet specific project requirements and meet local wind loads and EPA requirements. Knowing the project requirements will ensure that the correct brackets and poles are selected for the project.
