Natural light powers safety

NuTech National Solar provides sun-driver illumination

Solar panels installed atop the lights at bus stops provide the advantage of less battery power and longer lasting service

NuTech National Solar, Maitland, FL, specializes in the development and manufacture of bus stop lighting for public transit systems and school bus transportation, as well as college campuses and large corporations. Available in a variety of configurations, each set up provides illumination large areas with the highest intensity of light with a plethora of safety features.

Solar panels of 40 to 50 watts installed atop the lights at bus stops provide the advantage of less battery power and longer lasting service, extending the margin of safety at less cost. The reason being NuTech National employs its proprietary Lightstop LED solar power lighting, which uses smaller solar panels. The 10-, 20-, 40-, 50-watt solar panels vary in size from vary from 24 to 70 inches in length, which the company customizes to meet specific shelter requirements with its custom drop in panels of rust-proof color-coated aluminum.

NuTech says the Lightstop LED solar powered system ensures the safety of passengers waiting for their bus. With the push of a button, the waiting customer can alert the driver to stop.

The light turns on and stays on for 15-, 30- or 45-minute intervals. This feature alone can save time on the route when no one is waiting and the driver does not have to stop.

To ensure extra security precautions, NuTech can also equip the bus stop shelter with video from a complete pan-tilt zoom camera and audio which the agency can monitor, permitting direct communication with the person and summon for help if necessary. The wireless video operates on existing power from lighting or solar energy.

The system features a high tech-high ampage sealed, spill-proof, battery with a fused harness that promises as much as 50,000 hours maintenance free LED lighting — as much as 14 years of trouble free lighting from the sun. The battery fits into a weatherproof recycled PVC housing, which mounts easily with custom bracket kits for most style shelters. NuTech offers a 20-year life warranty on the solar panel. BR
