In October 2015 the first shipment with Plectre Sun columns was delivered in the Netherlands. For this small project our local partner, Lighting Pole Services, delivered 5 Plectre Sun columns with a light point height of 4,0 m. The base tube is 2,2 m high, which ensures that the solar panels cannot be vandalized easily form the ground.
It is a standalone solution with a battery compartment next to the column, therefor the the batteries can be changed easily. The customer chose a Siteco SL 10 Micro luminaire. We have had very good experiences with this particular luminaire. For this installation the customer will have web access so the columns can be monitored from a computer, table, smartphone etc. In the PRIESS control unit there is a small modem, which will send data of the energy consumption, energy production and the battery current to a server to monitor the data.
Alfred Priess A/S and Lighting Pole Services BV have delivered a full, ready for installation package to the customer including the concrete foundation. Therefor everything is ready for installation.
