Solar Powered Traffic Signal

Solar Powered Traffic Signal An off-grid solar power system allows you to install and operate a Traffic Signal in locations where a traditional 120VAC wired power source may be impractical, expensive or not available. Solar power systems can be the perfect solution for saving money powering traffic signals in remote locations.

Solar powered traffic signals, also known as traffic lights, traffic lamps and signal lights are signalling devices positioned at road intersections, pedestrian crossings and other locations to control competing flows of automobile traffic.

There are significant differences from state to state in how solar powered traffic signals are mounted or positioned so that they are visible to drivers. Depending upon the location, solar traffic signals may be mounted on poles situated on street corners, hung from horizontal poles or wires strung over a roadway.

Solar Powered Traffic Signs

A solar power system for a traffic sign consists of a solar module, a solar charge controller, a rechargeable solar deep-cycle battery, power converter, regulator or inverter and a weather-proof outdoor enclosure. This system is used to collect solar energy and the store electrical power, and then convert the stored power into the correct voltage to operate the traffic signal.

What Size Solar Power System For A Radio Transmitter?

Solar Traffic Signal To select the correct size solar power system to power a Traffic Signal there are a few things that must be known.

1. What is operating voltage and power consumption in amps, or watts of the traffic signal?

2. How many hours each day will the traffic signal be required to operate.

3. What is the geographical location the solar powered traffic signal will be installed.

4. How many days of battery reserve power are desired for "no sun" days?
