Brantford ON, July 13, 2011 EST - Proquip International is pleased to announce the release of their new MaxSUN TM line of feature rich, cost effective, commercial scale outdoor solar lighting solutions.


MaxSUN TM is the result of over 2 years of development combined with PQI's over 15 years of experience in solar energy, LED lighting and solar lighting as well as critical customer feedback. The MaxSUNTM system addresses the issues that are essential to lighting customers: predictable operation, maximum performance versus cost, and the utmost in reliability.

To achieve these results, PQI combines purpose-built electronics, the highest efficiency LED light engines developed by PQI and select partners, and world class solar panels and batteries. MaxSUN TM solar lighting systems are designed to work not only on the day they are installed but for the life of the installation ensuring reliability, safety, and lowest lifetime costs. We do not cut corners.

At the heart of the MaxSUN TM solar lighting system is the PQMaxTM charge and lighting controller. This high performance controller incorporates:
● MPPT technology optimized for efficiency at all levels to maximize energy production
● A wide input voltage range to support commercial scale solar panels
● 20A charge current to support large scale systems
● Fully programmable lighting profiles to adapt to any lighting requirement / system size
● Real-time, data logging enabling quick diagnostics and minimized downtime
● Windows TM configuration management and data download tool accessible via a USB interface
● Multiple levels of circuit protection and a 20-year design life

Our luminaires incorporate the latest LED technology from class leading suppliers and, when coupled with our PQSmart-M TM LED Driver, achieve system level efficiencies approaching 100 lumens/watt. Multiple available lighting distributions put that light exactly where it is needed.

The PQSmart-I TM driver with built in motion detection, temperature and charge level monitoring can also be coupled with our high performance light engines and PWM charge controllers to enable a high performance, cost effective solution for transit and other shelter applications.

The MaxSUN TM solar lighting system joins other advanced solar LED lighting systems manufactured and distributed by Proquip International enabling Proquip to be your one stop solution for off-grid lighting requirements. When you need "Solar Light. Done Right™", call PQI and be confident you will receive the best solution for your needs.
