What is Solar Street Light IP65 Waterproof

IP (International Protection) level is the protection of the product shell against dust and water as stipulated by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). Many outdoor products need to pass the waterproof test, and for electrical products,  there may be a short circuit, leakage, decay, interference with signals and so on if the IP lever is not good.

IP54 is the protection level of outdoor ordinary lamps and lanterns, with basic protection against dust and water spray. Generally, the light source and electrical appliances of this type of lamps and lanterns are not used in buried or submerged environments, such as garden lamps, lawn lamps, road lamps, etc. IP54 standard can be used. General outdoor lamps and lanterns Like solar street lamps with IP65 or higher IP67 or IP68 are dustproof and waterproof better and can be used directly in the underwater environment.

Waterproofing an LED Solar Street Light consists of making all parts resistant to water: the controller, solar panel, and the luminaire.

The solar panel converts solar energy into electrical energy throughout the day, the controller manages this process and the battery powers the streetlights with electricity at night. The solar panel converts solar energy into electrical energy throughout the day, the controller manages this process and the battery powers the streetlights with electricity at night. Waterproofing the LED street lamp luminaire is also crucial. The stability and safety of the LED street lamp lighting at night can only be ensured by effectively waterproofing the LED street lamp luminaire. The stability and safety of the LED street lamp lighting at night can only be ensured by effectively waterproofing the luminaire.

How to make Solar Street Light pass IP65 waterproof Level

1. Lamp design: The lamps of solar street lights need a waterproof design, such as choosing a special sealing structure, waterproof joints waterproof switches, etc., to ensure that rainwater will not penetrate the interior of the lamps.

2. Circuit protection: The circuit of the solar street light needs to be protected, such as choosing waterproof and moisture-proof circuit boards and electrical components to ensure that the circuit will not be short-circuited or damaged by rain.

3. Installation location: solar streetlights need to be installed in a suitable location to avoid being affected by heavy rain or flooding. For example, components such as solar panels and circuit boards should be installed at a higher position from the ground, and sturdy and stable mounting brackets should also be selected.

4. Maintenance: Regular maintenance, such as cleaning, checking circuit components, replacing damaged parts, etc., to ensure that the waterproof performance of solar street lights will not be affected.

5. In short, by comprehensively adopting the above measures, the waterproof performance of solar street light can be effectively improved to reach the waterproof grade of IP65, to ensure the normal work and service life of the street light under adverse weather conditions.

To improve the waterproof treatment of the solar street light controller, most of the controller is installed in the lampshade, and the battery box, generally will not get into the water, but in the actual case of the project will be some, such as improper installation or the controller’s circuit board did not do the three anti-painting treatment, which led to the rain will be along the controller’s terminals outside the wiring flows into the solar street light controller, which in turn caused the emergence of a short-circuit situation.
