Installation Advice

When you receive the SolarEye 80, the batteries will probably be completely discharged. Full operational performance (200+ hours non-stop) will not be achieved until the batteries have been fully charged. In direct sunlight, this can take up to 9 hours. For installations during winter months therefore, expect a slow build up to full performance - until the batteries gradually charge up. All solar powered products need exposure outdoors to direct sunlight to function correctly - so be sure to take this into account when selecting the positioning for the SolarEye product. Placement in areas of shade, or where the product becomes covered by debris/leaves or rubbish, may not allow the batteries to recharge correctly - adversely affecting performance. Remember that the SolarEye 80 has 1 central LED - so it is non directional. It has been designed to provide a good signal throughout 360 degrees i.e. from all approach angles/directions. This unique omnidirectional delineation signal, ensures economic usage and wide visibility for both pedestrians and cyclists outlining the curvature/direction of the path ahead.
