Types of LED Solar Lights Control Methods
Unlike the normal led lights powered by electricity, solar lights have a whole system to generate solar power into electrical power, then light up the led lights. The core technology of solar lights is the controller system, which decides the working theme of the solar lights under different situations.
Some new beginners who start buying solar lights may be a little confused about how the solar lights control system work. As a solar lights manufacturer in this solar lights industry for more than 10 years, here we’d like to share some information about it.
Basically, there are 4 types of solar lights control methods.
NO.1 Light Control
To make it simple, we can understand that solar lights are controlled by the changing of the light.
The light controller will automatically control the light on and off by sensing the intensity of the light on the solar panel. After installation of the solar lights, you don’t need to adjust the light on and off time according to the season. It will automatically turn off during the day and turn on at night. This kind of light control is now widely used in lithium-ion solar lights.
Some people will ask if the solar lights will turn on automatically if it is cloudy. It depends on the cloudy extent. Under the common cloudy extent, it will not light up. It will only light up under extreme conditions that cloudy make the surroundings as dark as that at night. Also, in such kind of cloudy moment, the solar lights shall be on for lighting.
NO.2 Time Control
In this time control mode, the solar lights will be lighting up in different modes according to time changes. The time setting is made in advance during the production of the solar lights. Normally solar lights manufacturers will make the time control based on light output brightness, for example, 3 hours 100% brightness, 2 hours 70% brightness, etc. Most of the solar street lights that are built along the main roads need a time control mode setting. Based on different applications, solar lights manufacturers will also customize the time control mode accordingly.
NO.3 Remote Control
The remote control is widely used in led light fixtures include solar lights. It is not difficult to understand the functions. Solar lights manufacturer will design several lighting modes in advance in the controller built inside the solar lights, then send them together with the compatible remote controller. You can change different working modes of the solar lights by using the remote. Different solar lights manufacturer will have different designs of the remote, remember to get clear instructions for it.
NO.4 ON/OFF Button
Some solar lights have an ON/OFF button on the housing, most of them are solar lights for gardens or homes so that people can decide the lights are on or off according to their needs. Some solar lights manufacturer may design the button hidden in order to make the solar lights with good waterproof function. It is essential to give instructions to consumers and make sure they know how to find the ON/OFF button.
Above are the four main control methods of solar lights, when you are importing solar lights from a solar lights manufacturer in China, you can check what control methods the solar lights have, then you can have a better understanding of what functions you will get.
