Sol Launches Outdoor Lighting Range
The company is touting the line as a cost effective and reliable alternative to on-grid lighting. It says the product is particularly suitable for parking lots, according to Zdnet.
The new 20/20 lights can withstand winds of up to 150 miles per hour, run for up to five nights off solar power without power being applied to the panels and can be linked to motion sensors to ensure that they are only on when needed, the web site reports.
Sol is targeting the product at banks, drug stores, retailers and fast-food outlets, Zdnet says.
In other environmentally friendly lighting news, the Optical Society has published a special“focus issue” on organic LEDs – LEDs in which light is emitted when an electrical current is passed through a layer of organic compound – in a supplement to its journal Optics Express.
The special issue provides the names of a number of studies carried out by researchers over the last few years which aim to overcome certain problems associated with the production of OLEDs, including low out-coupling levels and difficulties manufacturing stable emitter materials.
