Solar Signmaster™ is the ideal solution for new and existing traffic island schemes, offering increased visibility at night without the direct mains electricity costs. It requires minimal maintenance and annual servicing, limited to the exterior cleaning of the bollard as with a
The Solar Signmaster also presents opportunities to save costs in the development of rural schemes, where mains power may not be conveniently located by the road side.
During daylight hours, the solar panel charges the large capacity batteries which are housed in the sealed (IP67 rated) below ground chamber.
The large 300mm LED sign face is operated by LDR for night-time illumination. Powered by a smart ‘Eco Mode’ LED circuit when battery voltage is below 6V (50%) to maximise the run-time of the LED.
- Zero Direct Energy Costs: Solar panel charges large capacity batteries. Enters ‘Sleep-Mode’ to preserve battery when light level is too low to generate charge.
- Smart Power: 2 x 20Ah batteries provide 40Ah capacity. The batteries should not reach a critical level of charge, even when daylight hours are at their least during Winter. Solar panel ‘Sleep-Mode’ feature. Large 300mm LED sign face operated by LDR, ensures the unit is only illuminated during the hours of darkness preserving the battery life so that it can go longer between charges. Powered by smart ‘Eco-Mode’ LED Circuit when battery voltage is below 6V (50%). Maximises LED run time (approx. 4150 hours per annum).
- IP Rated Protection: Sealed, domed below ground battery chamber provides IP67 rated protection* for batteries and circuit. Circuit and batteries are protected below ground in
case of an impact, so the bollard will continue
to operate after an impact. Bollard IP56 rated*. Protects internal electrical components from water spray. Solar panel cover protects the LDR and solar panel in event of impact. Future proof - plug in power connector allows for quick and easy bollard only replacement.
- Visibility: Large 300mm LED sign face provides easier recognition for road users with L1 Mean Luminance and U3 Uniformity*. Very bright for excellent visibility and evenly distributed for easy recognition. Retroreflective conspicuity patches are highly visible by day and by night*. Side patches have class-leading size and are angled for a wider side view.
- Versatility: 606, 610, 611 & 616 ‘No Entry’ signs as standard. Other sign options available. Includes front and 2 x side retroreflective patches as standard. Additional Side and Rear Patches available for 360 degree visibility at junctions.
- Passively Safe: One piece bollard with integral fixing points prevents twisting. The bollard body is made from double-skinned, passively safe Impactapol® material. Bollard and battery chamber drive-through tested to meet BS EN 12767 and achieve 70, NE4.
- *Meets the requirements of BS 8442:2015.
