What are the advantages of the Ra80 modular all in one solar driveway light?
1. Solar panel. the panel on most all in one lights is fixed in the light body. Best results are realized when the light is mounted with the solar panel facing south. This restricts the use of the light for some applications. The Ra80 solar panel can be rotated 360degrees to aim at the sun for best solar collection. Further, in the winter, the sun is lower in the sky and best results are seen when the solar panel is much more vertical than the standard 10-15 degree angle for all in one lights. The result: the Ra80 can charge better, charge faster, charge more fully.... YEAR ROUND regardless of where you live.
2. Maintenance: If you live in an area where you get snowfall, you know the solar panel is covered in snow for days at a time. If you do not clean off the snow, it reduces or stops charging which limits or stops lighting operation at night. The Ra80 panel can be set as much as 50 degrees from vertical, allowing snow to slide off more easily, without your help. This allows for better charging in all weather.
3. More light output. The Ra80 has up to 15W of lighting power, if you have the sun to support this light output. We allow the customer to select 15, 10, 6, or 3 Watt light settings to match with the sunlight you receive. It does no good to have 15W of LED power if the solar panel cannot charge the battery enough each day to power the light. If you have good sunshine, the Ra80 can deliver outstanding light output. If you have less sun available, reduce the brightness setting to allow you more lighting time. We offer a balanced, flexible lighting solution.
4. More lighting time. With a bigger capacity internal battery, the Ra80 required a larger solar panel. We jumped to a 60W solar panel to give a powerful charging performance each day.
5. Finally, flexibility. The Ra80 can be used as an on demand light, a pure security light that is off until motion is sensed, a low level light all night long until motion is sensed, full brightness light all night or you can use the light for preset #of hours each night. Or you can even turn off the light while away.
The Ra80 can work almost anywhere and give you a strong lighting performance to match your lighting needs.
