The English novelist and poet Roman Payne – now residing in sun-kissed North Africa – said it best when he wrote: “O, Sunshine! The most precious gold to be found on Earth!”
Indeed, Earth’s lone star and its quasi-mystical qualities have been a source of inspiration for the work of bards, artists, philosophers and even scientists since time immemorial. However, it is only fairly recently that it has come into the fray as a source of renewable energy to drive the gears of industry, in addition to finding its way into many a modern domicile. The rising popularity and ubiquity of solar power in many different applications can be attributed to its incredible versatility as well as the growing global movement around energy conservation, with solar notably producing zero carbon emissions and therefore benefiting the environment.
Solar energy is also extremely useful when it comes to providing power at very remote sites where a mains source isn’t readily available, or is located very far away. It is for this reason that we have designed our industry-leading range of access automation solutions to be fully solar-compatible, so you can harness the power of the sun to enjoy true security and convenience wherever you are.
In a previous blog post, we talked a little bit about the benefits of going solar and, in this article, we’ll introduce you to some of our solar-ready products.
We produce the most innovative, robust and reliable gate motors made from the most durable materials and operating at high speeds for maximum security – perfect for controlling access in any environment and all ready to harness the power of the sun.
Garage door motors
With whisper-quiet operation, extended battery life and easy installation, our solar-ready garage door motors are the automatic choice for domestic sectional, tip-up and roll-up garage doors.
CENTURION traffic barriers are designed to handle heavy traffic volumes and can perform thousands of operations a day. Their robust construction ensures reliable long-term performance even in harsh environments such as mines.
The WiZo-Link Solar Repeater is a self-contained device comprising a WiZo-Link with an onboard Lithium-ion battery, solar panel, mounting bracket and wiring harness.
This repeater will allow you to expand your WiZo-Link network even where no power source is readily available.
Imagine a large site such as a farm where you need to wirelessly control lighting or devices across many buildings. To extend the range of the network you might need to place a WiZo-Link between the buildings. Having a power source in the middle of nowhere is very unlikely. Enter the WiZo-Link Solar Repeater… problem solved!
