What makes the difference?
We all know the term "light pollution”. The latter indicates
that too much artificial light is emitted into the dark, nocturnal sky. This
undesirable illumination leads to a considerable waste of energy and funds.
Maximum lumen is often used as performance criterion for the
comparison of different lighting systems. Actually, this value has only limited
significance. The relevant criterion is maximum lighting performance covering
certain grounds for a defined period of time in combination with the distribution
of light within the relevant area. Superior light distribution is one of
Photinus’ strengths and achieved using LED luminaires from Hella.
- Photinus photovoltaic – technology -
Photinus has developed a unique procedure for photovoltaic
cells that allows us to store much more electrical energy in batteries than
normally possible. Hereby, photinus mono crystalline high performance
photovoltaic modules, comprising 36 cells, represent the centrepiece and
prerequisite for this unique selling proposition regarding service security and
Outdoor lighting takes place in an architectural and natural
environment and has to be integrated harmonically. Our "energy tower”
definitely meets this requirement.
- EFFICIENCY -
Highest efficiency is a prerequisite when targeting
customer’s enthusiasm. Highest efficiency within the segment of
self-sustaining, solar LED street lighting enables extensive autonomous times
and hence service security and reliability in continuous bad weather conditions
such as fog, snow falls or smog.
This requirement is met by Photinus due to its 360° PV
module solution, the sophisticated control system managing energy and time,
latest battery technology as well as a luminaire, which illuminates the right
place without deficiency.
The combination of all these efficiency values makes
