    EXAMPLE:
    An ActiveLED Billboard Lighting System of 300 watts (4 x 75 watt fixtures) that is dimmed down to light level 50, for example after 2 AM when it is very dark and traffic is light, consumes just 48 Watt (16% of 300 Watt), saving 252 Watt, 84%

  • Choice of light fixture wattage, see table for details

    Choice of fixture colors - Silver, White, Charcoal Grey, Bronze or Brown finish.
    Custom colors available on request

  • Precise adjustment of the angle of the billboard light via the convenient end-mounting bolts (10mm) allows the fixture to be adjusted for most billboard sizes and configurations



FLBB-S Series ActiveLED® Solar-Ready LED Billboard Lights - Integrated Solar Controller for LiFePO4 Battery Systems

Solar-Ready ActiveLED® Billboard Light Fixtures have a highly-efficient Solar Controller integrated into the LED Driver / Power Source.

The FLBB-S Series is a market first from Ringdale - a market leader in LED lighting systems

FLBB-S Series ActiveLED fixtures make off-grid solar lighting an easily achievable reality.

With an integrated Solar Controller, the FLBB-S Series ActiveLED light fixtures have one less system component compared to other solar light solutions, making the installation and maintenance process far simpler and less expensive. The innovative billboard light design effectively eliminates the need for a costly separate Solar Controller.

The Solar-Ready BillBoard Lights are cost effective to install and have a light output similar to 75 through 600 watt HPS / HID fixtures.

Both the optional Solar Array and the optional Battery Pack connect directly to the FLBB-S Solar-Ready fixture via low-voltage DC cables. One Solar Array (up to 220 watts and 46 Volts DC) and one Battery Pack (12, 24 or 48 Volt DC, 48 VDC recommended) are supported.

With its patented design and superior LED elements, the FLBB-S Series of fixtures are a reliable light source with a 90,000-hour lumen life, making it a maintenance-free solution for applications where changing bulbs and ballasts can be hazardous and expensive.

FLBB-S Series Solar-Ready Product Overview

Any 12, 24, 48 or 72 Watt version ActiveLED BillBoard light fixture can be factory-configured as a Solar-Ready BillBoard Light Fixture.

Battery Pack Management by ActiveLED

The ActiveLED FLBB-S series fixtures employ a highly efficient Integrated Solar Controller / Driver that has three levels of battery charging (the following data is for room temperature):

1 Bulk Charging of the battery pack until the battery voltage reaches about 14.7 volts for a 12-volt system or about 58.8 volts for a 48-volt system.
2 Absorption charging for 2 hours.
3 Float or Trickle charging at 13.5 volts for a 12 volt system and 54 volts for a 48-volt system.

ActiveLED® Technology

Ringdale uses the latest in energy efficient LEDs and LED Modules producing equal or greater light output than legacy bulb fixtures. Our state-of-the-art electronics monitor current and temperature of the substrate to assure maximum performance under the prevailing environmental conditions and a Lumen Lifetime of 90,000 hours (90% Luminous Flux).

ActiveLED® Diffuser Technology

We use state-of-the-art diffuser technology with a minimal amount of light loss within the fixture providing for maximum lighting efficiency.

To meet varying application requirements, the ActiveLED Solar-Ready BillBoard Lights can be configured with either a clear or a "diffused" second diffuser.
This second diffuser completely seals the underside of the fixture, preventing the ingress of water, dust and insects.

ActiveLED® Warranties

We provide mechanically robust outdoor lighting systems; our warranties are 10 years on LED elements, fixtures and integrated solar controllers. / drivers
