There will be a fully labeled drawing or pictorial representation of the assembly of the solar system.
The next section of the catalogues is all about the different types of solar LED street lights. Here, the manufacturer or reseller will explain the difference and where the system can be applied. Others will go further to list some of the advantages and disadvantages of the product.
For each solar led street light, they’ll provide a list of specifications. The suggested specification will contain information on
- The road width,
- Sun power radiation,
- Center luminous (LUX),
- Working hours
- Backup for rainy days (days)
- LED and Solar panel requirement (wattage)
- Battery energy charge (ampere-hour)
The next section of the catalogues describes each component of the solar LED street light. You should see pictures of the solar panel, battery, LED lamp, controller, and any electronic device installed to improve its performance. As for the different types of each component, you will find the presentations is their particular sections.
Here you will find assembled or exploded views of the drawing or pictures of each specific component.
For the solar module, expect specifications information such as:
- Material type
- Power rating
- Solar panel efficiency
- Operating temperature
- Maximum surface load capacity
Some catalogues may go on and briefly describe the type of material used, its advantage, and disadvantages.
Solar LED Lamp
For the LED Lamp specification expect information such as
- Lamp power range
- The LED chip Brand
- Type of LED
- Lamp efficiency
- Power factor
- Color temperature and rendering index
- Working temperature
- Fixture material
- IP rating
- Life span
- External Dimension
In case the manufacturer produces different fixtures, you will find these options with their specifications. The technology used in functions such as the automation and control of the solar LED streetlights will fall under this section.
For the Battery, expect the following specification information:
- The rated working voltage
- Storage capacity
- Interior resistance
- Charge and Discharge rate
- Casing or Housing material
- Working temperature
Alongside the presentation of the battery, you might find the description of the features in the component.
For the solar LED street light controller, most catalogues will list;
- The various types
- The working voltage and temperature
- The required current
- The timer
- The IP rating
- The lifespan
It may also include a brief description of the features, the modes, and functions of this component.
If the company deals with the manufacture of all in one solar LED street light lamp, all the specifications for each component will fall under one table.

- The material and treatment (galvanization, coating)
- Bolt and nut material and size
- Vertical and horizontal angle measurements
- Other special features that enhance transportation and installation
In this part of the documentation, you will find the foundation kit with specifications indicating the material, fastening tools, life span, and other special features.
The sixth section of a solar street light catalogue is a description of the special features or functions of the system. Here, you will find the street light intelligence control and switching modes. The sensory and LED technology illustrations will fall in this section.
Proof of Customer satisfaction
The last section of a Manufacturer’s catalogue will contain a showcase of the projects the company has handled in the installation of their solar LED streetlight in different locations of the world or country. Some documents will have feedbacks from various clients who have used their services. Others may list international institutions or organizations that they have associated with in the past.
