Solar Traffic Systems


Solar traffic control systems are widely used around the world in developed municipal areas, highways, and rural and remote areas where a full-blown traffic signal is too costly yet some level of control is needed. Traffic solar control systems can be used in solar-powered crosswalk systems; flashing beacons for school zones; continuous-duty flashers; radio-activated systems; and sensor-activated flashers, and many other applications on the road, in airports, industrial areas, coastal areas, and many others.

The common components of a solar traffic system include a solar array comprising a solar module, mounting structure, system controls panel, battery, an enclosure which holds the electronic controls and batteries, and the LED lamp assemblies.

 A well-designed system will operate unattended and requires minimum periodic maintenance. Maintenance for solar modules is generally limited to shading from surrounding plants and accumulations of dirt on the modules. A properly-designed solar traffic system will function in all weather conditions day and night, and it will hold and supply enough power to run the equipment for its duty cycle. Duty cycle is the number of hours per day each piece of equipment in the load will be operated. The maintenance-free batteries of the solar traffic system will usually last from 5 to 7 years.

Residential applications

Use the free solar and wind energy to generate electricity for your home, heat water for home and pool use, illuminate your garden, or just take a portable power on your next trip to the outdoors.

Commercial applications

Use the free solar and wind energy to power buildings and warehouses, pump water for irrigation and cattle, desalinate sea water, and to cool and heat commercial buildings and outdoor areas.
