Solar energy driven street lights are being increasingly employed by people for lighting their surroundings. Using them grants them various benefits in terms of getting to use renewable source of energy, doing away with the electricity bills and protecting the environment. Before installing a solar LED street lighting system at your place, the installation personnel of the company from where you bought it, are going to test and inspect your light to ensure it is working perfectly and devoid of any defects. Its testing steps are as follows:
Firstly they will put the lights in a level area and cover the solar panel.
Then they will turn on the lamp by pressing the switch on the lamp. After a few seconds, it will be providing 100% light.
Next, they will pick up the lamp and make the solar panel face the sunshine. This will lead to the sudden disappearance of the light. They will then cover the solar panel and the LED light will appear again. This assures them that the lamp is working in a proper manner.
Then the personnel will turn their attention towards testing the PIR sensor. They will cover the sensor when it is lighting fully and then would wait for around 40 seconds. After this much time, it will give 30% light. This is because when the sensor is unable to feel any motion or heat outside, it automatically radiates up to 30% light.
Now they would be taking off the cover from the sensor when it is giving 30% light and it will immediately start glowing with 100% light. This assures them that the sensor is working fine.
Lastly, they will turn off the lamp and handle it carefully so it does not get damaged due to any movement. This thus completes the testing process.
If during the testing process of the solar LED street light system, the personnel find that it is not lighting properly or not lighting at all, they would take the necessary remedial action that may include replacing the light if it is absolutely needed. Similarly they will test other components of the system including battery and others and ensure these are fully functional before the installation process commences.
