First Light Technologies launches intelligent solar LED luminaire for area and parking lot lighting applications

May 17, 2016
Victoria, BC, Canada – First Light Technologies Ltd., a leading designer and manufacturer of architectural-quality, integrated solar-powered and high efficiency LED lighting products is pleased to introduce the SCL2 Series solar LED luminaire.

Building on the success of the SCL, the SCL2 Series is a higher output solar LED luminaire intended for larger commercial, public space and parking lot lighting applications. The SCL2 is twice as powerful as the popular SCL luminaire and typically produces 2000 lumens. The luminaire made its debut at LightFair International in San Diego in April.

With typical mounting heights of 15' - 20' and unmatched lighting power given its compact size, the SCL2 is a solar LED luminaire with tremendous versatility. The self-contained, unobtrusive design integrates its solar power, adaptive control and LED technologies into a compact and efficient form. With robust construction, and unequalled performance the SCL2 series is an excellent fit wherever cost effective, full cutoff lighting is required. The SCL2 comes equipped with First Light’s new high performance lithium battery with an exceptional 8 to 10 year life cycle.

Utilizing solar power and LEDs, the SCL2 series is completely self-contained and offers significant benefits:
• Cost effective design ships fully assembled and installs in minutes
• Low installation cost and minimal site impact with no trenching, cabling or wiring
• Minimal ongoing costs with no electrical bills or bulbs to change
• Operates entirely independent from the grid and is immune to power outages
• A sustainable choice without recurring carbon emissions

About First Lights solar lighting products:
Smart: All of First Lights solar powered lights are enabled by a proprietary Solar Lighting Controller (SLC). The SLC in each light is “self learning” and allows the light to predicatively adapt to their surroundings, providing a level of lighting performance and reliability unavailable in other solar lighting products.

Simple: The self-contained design ensures that the lights are a simple, plug n’ play installation. They are compact and require no trenching, wiring or onsite assembly, ensuring install costs are minimal.

Self-Contained: The self-contained approach facilitates the thoughtful design features noted above and offers a discreet commercial style that will complement most sites.

First Light provides architectural quality, innovative lighting solutions that are significantly less expensive than the solar lighting of yesterday.
