New Product Introduction: SEPCO™ SolarViper — Solar-powered, pole-mounted LED area, parking lot, roadway and walkway lights. Units provide crisp white, ultra long-lasting light precisely where needed at motorist and pedestrian levels, without dependence on any electrical-utility grid system. SEPCO™ SolarViper is 100% solar powered at all times, “off the grid,” self-storing and self-recharging.
Product Design: SEPCO,™ the Solar Electric Power Company, In-House Solar-Lighting Product Development and Engineering Team.
Manufacturer: SEPCO™, founded 1994, is a U.S. entrepreneurial family-owned manufacturer exclusively of luminaires, solar lighting and solar-power systems for “off grid” outdoor lighting.
Product Applications: One SEPCO™ much lower-watt SolarViper replaces up to 1000-watt metal halide or high-pressure sodium lights; any multi-unit linear fluorescents or CFLs in the same outdoor area, parking, road or walkway applications; whether easy retrofit or new installation.
SEPCO™ SolarViper consumes as little as 10 up to 425 off-grid solar- power watts, with a minimum of five nights autonomy from stored power. SEPCO™ solar-power assemblies are integral to the light and pole, sized according to customer requirements, installation location or site conditions.
SEPCO™ SolarViper is available in four light distribution patterns and five mounting options. Each model and its wattage saves 100% of grid-based electrical energy, lowers maintenance costs, and lasts for decades. SolarViper qualifies for LEED points on projects. It exemplifies the most energy-efficient, most cost-efficient, longest-lasting, lowest maintenance contemporary outdoor lighting design available anywhere today.
SEPCO™ SolarViper places direct-downward, high color-rendition light along public or private areas of any kind: primary, secondary or tertiary roads; pedestrian walkways; public/private parking lots or curbsides; throughout cityscapes, suburban, semi-rural — even rural — applications. SolarViper is Dark-Sky™ compliant, low-glare; minimizes light trespass, spillover or wasted light.
Product Description: SEPCO™ SolarViper has a slender, curved wedge-shaped, aerodynamic light head that easily complements newer or older site areas, structural architecture, all roadways and walkways.
Integral sloped, flow-through vertical cooling fins on the underside of light-head surfaces retard sediment or moisture buildup. Much less heat gets trapped within SEPCO™ SolarViper luminaires, significantly reducing junction temperatures, maximizing LED light output with 100,000 hours rated lamp and electrical component life. Critical LED components remain cool because of the lighthead and LED lightsource design; no grates, screens or other debris-control devices are needed.
Compact solar-panel assemblies for SEPCO™ SolarViper are selected and programed by SEPCO™ in-house solar-lighting engineers to recharge concealed storage-battery assemblies, customizing SolarViper illumination to location and use.
Many SEPCO™ SolarViper light-pole options are available in accordance with power-assembly size, wind-load requirements, and with direct burial, anchor- or transformer-base options. Poles available in aluminum, composite fiberglass or galvanized steel.
Light arrays range from twenty-two to thirty LEDs, with individual wattages, ranging from 15 to 70, in square or rectangular patterns on thermally-efficient metal-clad circuit boards. SEPCO™ SolarViper has no additional at-installation ventilation requirements. IESNA Type II, III, IV, V and other light-distribution patterns readily available. For ocean shore areas, SEPCO™ turtle-friendly lighting is also available.
Individual LED dimming drivers are sealed to IP66 or IP67 standards. They are located on the inside of a removable screw-fastened swing-down door, providing access to drivers and to a time-saving push-button terminal block. A field-rotatable, twist-lock photo-control receptacle is optionally available for use with standard or “smart” light-control devices. SEPCO™ SolarViper is CSA certified for wet locations, employs UL recognized components, and is made in the USA.
Construction and Finishes: SEPCO™ SolarViper housings and doors are precision-tooled die-cast aluminum. Polyester powder-coated finishes are standard for the entire SEPCO™ lighting system.
