Neuschwanstein – one of the most beautiful places in the world – the Solar Street Light merkur300, from photinus, illuminates the castle driveway!
Strong – stronger – the strongest
Photinus stands for innovation, elegance and highest quality with its unique LED solar lights. Based on these attributes, photinus developed the new merkur, a solar light with the highest possible light performance. Solar lights were only used up to illuminance class S5 until today. Now, merkur moves the field of application into another dimension. Panel performance of roughly 1000 watt can be achieved due to the sophisticated, modular tower and offers thus unexpected light performance. Therefore, solar street-, place-, or way lighting can be used – in accordance with nearly any norm – at any place regardless of the existence of electrical infrastructure. Hereby, Photinus offers the highest operational safety and light quality even under bad weather conditions (fog, snow or smog).
From solar paradise to the alps
The vertically, specially arranged photinus high performance modules prevent snow from accumulating on it in winter and supply therefore a lot of energy – regardless of summer or winter. A sophisticated energy management system guarantees secure functionality over several nights even in poor weather conditions. The merkur family is best suited for residential streets, side streets, cycle routes and footpaths as well as car parks due to its excellent and unique light performance.
The merkur300 stands out for its exceptional, cubic design and guarantees a secure supply in all different climate zones. The merkur300 solar light is a solar powered LED street lamp, which is used in regions without electrical infrastructure or in which it would not be economically feasible to implement one. The luminaire is especially used in areas that demand a secure supply and excellent light quality even in dim conditions.
The merkur300 is able to generate sufficient energy via the diffuse light component in regions with poor weather (snow, fog, etc.) due to the cubic aluminum construction with 16 photinus High Performance photovoltaic modules. The vertically arranged modules prevent snow from accumulating on it in winter. A sophisticated energy management system guarantees secure functionality over several nights even in poor weather conditions. The merkur300 is best suited for residential streets, side streets, cycle routes and footpaths as well as car parks etc. in accordance with DIN EN13201 due to its light output.
The integrated battery is charged via 16 photinus High Performance photovoltaic modules and powers efficiently the LED array during the night.
As well as the standard anthracite colour, the merkur300 can also be ordered in other RAL colours on large projects for an additional charge.
