Intelligent Integrated "1659" Solar Controller and LED Driver for managing and controlling a solar-charged battery-powered ActiveLED® light fixture

Intelligent Integrated Solar Controller and LED Driver manages the charging of a 24 or 48-volt Battery Pack from a Solar Array (up to 250 Watts NOCT rating), maximizing battery life, light output and illumination time.

ActiveLED® Intelligent Integrated "1659" Solar Controller and LED Driver is specifically designed to manage and control an ActiveLED® solar-charged battery-powered light assembly. It harvests the maximum available solar energy and maximizes the available battery energy to power a nighttime light.

The ActiveLED Integrated Solar Controller can be used with any compatible Solar Panel Array and Battery Pack. The product is micro-processor controlled and provides six major functions:

Monitor and control the attached solar array and battery pack.
Drive and power the attached ActiveLED Light Fixture.
Harvest the maximum available solar energy for recharging the battery pack.
Maximize the life of the battery pack by preventing over and under-charging.
Maximize the light output and illumination time by managing the power consumption of the light fixtures.
Protection of battery pack, solar array and electronics when any component is disconnected or when a low-battery condition exists.

Physical Overview

Integrated Solar Controller / LED Driver consists of a ActiveLED designed and manufactured PCBA (Printed Circuit Board Assembly) complete with heat sink for mounting inside an appropriate ActiveLED Light Fixture for maximum protection and heat dissipation.

The Solar Controller has external connectors for connecting to the Battery Pack and Solar Array, with factory-configured internal connections to the Light Fixture.

Solar Controller Compatibility

The ActiveLED Integrated Solar Controller / LED Driver is designed to be compatible with most 24-volt and 48-volt DC Battery Packs, which typically consists of four (4) 12 Volt DC batteries connected in series. Typical battery packs are 40 AH, 80 AH, 120 AH and 250 AH capacity, dependent upon the application. Supported Battery technology includes SLA and LiFePO4.
The Solar Array can be one or more solar panels connected in series, minimum 22 Watts to a maximum of 250 Watts.

Unique ActiveLED® System Capabilities

When the Integrated Solar Controller / LED Driver is used in combination with the appropriate ActiveLED Lighting Fixture then additional capabilities and benefits associated with that fixture are available to the total system, including the following:

Cost savings - by implementing either smaller solar arrays (wattage) or smaller battery packs (wattage), or both, to power the highly efficient ActiveLED lighting fixture.
Extended battery life and extended illumination time of the chosen ActiveLED lighting fixture from a battery pack.
Further extend the illumination time of the ActiveLED light by deploying the optional Digital Dimmer and/or Motion Sensor.

Management - SLA Battery Pack

The highly efficient ActiveLED Integrated Solar Controller / Driver has three levels of battery charging for Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) batteries at room temperature:

1 Bulk Charging - of the battery pack until the battery voltage reaches about 29.4 volts for a 24-volt system or about 58.8 volts for a 48-volt system.
2 Absorption charging - for 2 hours.
3 Float or Trickle charging - at 27.0 volts for a 24 volt system and 54 volts for a 48-volt system.

Management - LiFePO4 Battery Pack

The highly efficient ActiveLED Integrated Solar Controller / Driver version for LiFePO4 battery packs has a charging system designed specifically for these Deep Cycle Batteries at room temperature:

1 Bulk Charging - of the battery pack until the battery voltage reaches about 29.4 volts for a 24-volt system or about 58.8 volts for a 48-volt system.
2 Stop charging - and monitor battery voltage.
3 Monitor - When battery voltage drops to 27.0 volts for a 24 volt system and 54 volts for a 48-volt system restart Bulk Charging.
