| November 8, 2013

Meteor is expanding sustainable lighting with new additions, SP-8 and SP-018, to its smart solar LED bollard selection. The SP-8 and SP-018 runs exclusively on solar power with zero power consumption and can be installed in wide range of new applications where traditional wired bollards have not been installed. Functions include separating pedestrian and vehicle traffic, increasing safety of walkways, improving landscape designs, and complementing its architectural surroundings with its understated design. The revolutionary bollards are ideal for installations near national parks or beaches where wiring and maintenance is expensive and impractical.

Simple form and modern finish enables the SP-8 and SP-018 to be incorporated into new and retrofit projects without altering existing structural elements. The smart illuminating bollards are ideal for marking pathways in applications such as public parks, university campuses, museums, shopping malls, airports, etc. Featuring high efficacy LEDs and Type IV design, the SP-8 and SP-018 provides functional illumination with full cutoff design, no glare, and zero light pollution.

Incorporating the latest microcontroller (MCU) technology, the SP-8 and SP-018 are programmed to offer efficient, flexible and intelligent lighting management and control. Step dimming capability helps achieve significant energy savings up to 65% and motion activated brightening ensures brightness increases to 100% for one minute before returning to 33% brightness. Customized solar panel increases power input and enables improved performance by 35% on sunny days and 54% on rainy days, lasting up to 10 overcast days on full charge.

Meteor’s smart solar illuminating bollards offer ideal sustainable lighting solutions for a wide variety of landscape designs.
