The solar powered ParkLight is fitted to Basketball Towers to allow for play after dark - see Mode of Operation. Playing basketball in parks is a positive group activity that helps people stay active and social. Basketball growth in New Zealand is phenomenal and there is a significant undersupply of facilities. Extending the usability of basketball courts in parks assists with this need in a very simple and cost effective way.
Mode of Operation
The Daylight / Night-time sensor will activate the solar light to 100% illumination for the first 2 hours of dark, thereafter it will reduce to 30% illumination. When activity is detected via the radar sensor the light will increase to 100% and reduce down to 30% when there is no activity. At sunrise the solar light reverts to sleep mode and recharges the battery.
