The high-tech company dilitronics presents the Solar LED controller ESoLUX as a world first. This controller unit for solar-powered LED lamps provides the eco-friendly and efficient operation of off-grid lighting systems. The intelligent control of the components – solar panels, accumulators and LEDs – is the heart of the controller.
In the next years, all the local luminaires will have to be changed to energy-efficient lights (EC regulation 2005/32/EC). Stephan Schulz, Managing Director of dilitronics, explains: “Against this background, the demand for long-lasting lighting concepts is increasing. With ESoLUX we offer an innovative and competitively priced product that allows the reliable solar lighting based on LED technology.”
ESoLUX can be programmed via USB interface and thus it can be adjusted to very different operating conditions. The integrated software offers a unique variety of configuration options of the controller. The capability of the components can be optimally used by programming. Mr Schulz: “The efficient use of the solar panel, battery and LED outputs allows to save energy by ten percent compared to conventional LED systems and thus guarantees a longer luminous period.” A residual lifetime prediction and a low voltage disconnect for accumulator protection ensure the operating reliability of the system.
Apart from the advantage of an energy-independent and CO2-neutral operation the controller maximizes the lifetime of the accumulators, panels and LEDs. Moreover, the programmability allows the movement-, time- or weather-dependent control of the lighting systems. The ESoLUX controller enables a space-saving integration into the lighting units. Additional electronic components are not required for the operation of the light source.
