First of all, before designing the height of the street light, we should first understand and know the type of street light you want to install

Types of solar street lights

There are many types of solar street lights. According to the light source, they can be divided into LED lights, solar street lights, energy-saving solar street lights, etc. According to the occasion, they can be divided into ordinary solar street lights, high pole solar street lights, courtyard solar street lights, landscape solar street lights, etc. .

Solar street light height

The pole height of conventional solar street lights is generally configured with 4 meters, 5 meters, 6 meters, 8 meters, 10 meters, etc. In addition, the height of the street light is closely related to the width of the road section that is actually illuminated. Generally, the height of the street light and the road surface are arranged on one side. The width is the same, or the height of the street lamp is less than 1 meter of the road width. The relationship between common LED street lamp power and lamp pole height is generally: 30~60W street lamp height below 6 meters, 60~100W street lamp height below 8 meters, and 100~150W street lamp height below 10 meters.

After understanding the height selection of solar street lights, let's take a look at the spacing settings of solar street lights!

Solar street lamp spacing

The spacing of solar street lights is determined by a variety of factors such as the lighting power of the street lights, the height of the street lights, and the width of the road. There are standards, and some are required to achieve the illuminance value, there is no hard requirement. Generally speaking, the street lamp interval is related to the height of the lamp pole and the wattage of the lamp holder. 60-watt LED lamp holders, about 6 meters of light poles, 15-18 meters apart; 8 meters of light poles are 20-24 meters apart, and 12 meters of light poles are 32-36 meters apart.

In addition, we are looking at the knowledge of the light source of solar street lights

Solar street light source

Street light sources include LED lights, induction lamps, ordinary energy-saving lamps, metal halide lamps, etc. Which street light source is better? Metal halide lamps and ordinary energy-saving lamps are not expensive, have a long life, and are easy to maintain, but this type of street light source The electricity consumption is relatively high, so it is not recommended to choose; the induction lamp is also a kind of energy-saving lamp, the theoretical life is quite long, but the cost is high, the maintenance is not easy, this kind of light source is not recommended; the street lamp LED light source is the most used in recent years The light source is high efficiency, energy saving, environmental protection, long life, convenient maintenance, and inexpensive. Many countries and regions are vigorously promoting LED. LED street lighting is recommended. LED solar street lighting is the first choice for road lighting.
