Our partner in the Netherlands, Lighting Pole Services BV has in corporation with Rijkswaterstaat installed Plectre Sun solar cell columns at a rest stop next to highway A15. This reststop is situated between the Dutch cities Arnhem and Tiel. The project consists of 5 stand-alone columns with a LSH of 6,0 meters. The light fittings used at the columns are 31W Boos Naica 18 LED’s.
The column consists of 2 solar panels at the columns 3 sides. The solar panels are located from a height of approximately 4,4 meters onwards. This location makes it more difficult to commit vandalism. The column has easy to access batteries located next to the foundation.
Priess Light Column Controller (LCC) take care of optimal charging of the batteries and light control. Priess LCC are equipped with remote access via WiFi and GSM, for monitoring of the columns operation.
