Integrated charging unit constantly monitors the state of the batteries.
3-PIR Sensors, the only light offering detection for a wider range of motion.

The Prolectric ProTemp is a temporary solar lighting column that delivers powerful and reliable year round lighting without noise or emissions for sites such as construction compounds, temporary car parks, outdoor events and festivals.

Smart Technology

Every ProTemp is fitted with smart Passive Infrared Sensor (PIR) to optimise power usage in the unit. A bright light is activated when the area is entered by a vehicle or person. When the area is unused this ‘smart eye’ technology switches off to save battery usage and minimise light pollution.

Reliable Year Round Lighting

The Prolectric ProTemp has been proven in operation at a number of major construction sites across the UK. Working with our partner manufacturing suppliers we have developed and tested the unit, so we can be confident it will operate reliably even during dark days and winter conditions.

Continual Savings

The ProTemp lighting column delivers a powerful and reliable year round lighting solution without noise or emissions. The ProTemp offers a clean, low-carbon lighting solution that requires minimal maintenance.

Easy Install

The ProTemp can be moved into position quickly and easily with a forklift or telehandler to provide high-quality bright light that will continue reliably even through dark days and winter conditions. For contractors and events organisers, the ProTemp is a ‘setup and forget’ asset that does not need to be refuelled or serviced.

No Mains Power Required

With no mains power, the ProTemp dispenses with the need for a contractor to dig trenches, install trunking or cables and saves significantly on groundworking and installation costs.

Clean, Low Carbon Lighting

As an alternative to temporary diesel lighting, the ProTemp offers a clean, low-carbon lighting solution that requires minimal maintenance. Available for purchase, it is straightforward to switch to the ProTemp.

What’s the difference between solar lighting and traditional street lights?

Solar lights are entirely off-grid and require no cables or trenches.

Can the lights be programmed?

Yes, all of the settings are customisable. The lights will illuminate at dusk. The light intensity at both triggered and no triggered mode can be adjusted based on customer requirements. Additionally the lights can be set to turn off at a particular time if in a residential area.

Do the solar street lights work in winter?

Yes, we have been installing lights in the UK since 2011 and we have developed the software and knowledge to ensure the lights work consistently up and down the UK.

What applications are the lights suitable for?

The solar street lights are used across both small and large sites in both commercial and residential settings including housing estates, parks, car parks, seafronts, campuses, hospital estates and military bases.

What’s the battery life expectancy of the Solar Street lights?

2,500 cycles. However, this is not 2,500 days.  Majority of the year (roughly 9 months), the lights do not go thru a full cycle every day. They are expected therefore to last between 4 – 7 years dependent the level and number of full discharges.

Can I monitor my street lights remotely?

Yes, we’re able to offer you access to our Street Lighting portals. A master and then gateways are added to the panels including a sim card for connectivity. The portal will give access to each panel and light connected to the specific setup network. You can see battery soc, generation, lights on or off. You can also put the lights on a time schedule away from their usual UK settings

Do Solar street lights work on a cloudy day?

The latest panel technology means that even on a cloudy day, power will still be generated. The battery has capacity for around 5 consecutive days of n0 solar yield, to cover even the worst periods of UK weather.

Can solar street lights, light all roadways?

Our lights can be used on all unadopted roads, but not on adopted roads.

Adopted roads are looked after by councils and maintained accordingly. They also like to use a control system with all street lighting and have it on a set program. Due to the way our PIR’s work they are not effective enough to work on highways due to the speed of vehicles. By the time the car gets detected by the PIR, the light comes on after the car has passed the light.
