SCL Series

Solar Powered LED Integrated Commercial Area Light

Why Choose the SCL


The self-contained, unobtrusive design of the SCL series integrates its solar power, adaptive control and LED technologies into a compact and efficient form. Robust construction and unparalleled performance combine to make this luminaire an excellent fit wherever cost-effective, full cutoff lighting is required.

The SCL series incorporates our innovative Solar Lighting Controller (SLC) which makes all of our solar lights “self-learning.” This allows the light to predicatively adapt to their surroundings, providing lighting performance and reliability unmatched by other solar lighting products.

Photometric Diagrams


Our optical system efficiently focuses light where it’s needed. For the SCL, we offer a number of standard lighting distributions to optimize performance for applications from parks to plazas.

All of our lighting distributions are full cutoff, meaning that they are complaint with dark sky requirements. Measurements are in footcandles.

Lighting Profiles


The profile that you choose will control the timing and performance of your light through the night. The default for the SCL is profile 04.


On at dusk > Off at dawn


On at dusk > Off after 6 hours


On at dusk > dim to 30% after 6 hours > Off at dawn


On at dusk > Off after 5 hours > On 1 hour before dawn> Off at dawn

04 (default)

On at dusk > Dim to 30% after 5 hours > Brighten to 100% 1 hour before dawn > Off at dawn
