The role of solar road studs

Solar road studs are installed on the highway a kind of indicator, its role and road markings are similar, but solar road studs can be active in the night, so as to drive the vehicle to guide the road, the use of road studs, to a large extent, can reduce the occurrence of traffic accidents.


 In recent years, with the rapid development of road construction, especially highway construction, people's road safety awareness is becoming stronger and more humane. As a kind of traffic safety sign, road studs are widely used in domestic high-grade highways and municipal roads. Solar positioning lights have a better visual effect than ordinary positioning lights. Solar road stud lights are available in die-cast aluminium housing or plastic housing, with solar cells as charging elements. NiMH and lithium batteries are used as energy storage elements and LED beads are used for illumination. Most road stud products with passive lighting are used on motorways.
Road studs flash at a certain frequency or are always illuminated in the evening. People's vision is sensitive to changes, so their dynamic warning effect is very strong, and active lighting not only minimises rain and fog interference, but also removes dependence. Photovoltaic conversion is carried out using monocrystalline silicon solar panels. Monocrystalline silicon is a relatively active non-metallic element with the advantages of high purity and high solar energy conversion in addition to its general characteristics. The reflective luminance of an ordinary reflective pin is only 300MCD to 400MCD, while the luminance of a solar reflective pin can reach 2000MCD, which is 6 to 7 times higher than the former. This high intensity light can penetrate the rain and fog at night and guide the driver safely and effectively through the LED beads.
Cat eye road stud can achieve synchronous flashing mode, which can guide drivers on rainy days, foggy days, and low visibility areas, play a warning, guidance, etc. Compared with traditional plastic and cast aluminum solar road studs, they have a self-cleaning function, absorb sunlight quickly, have a large luminous area, high brightness, high warning, beautify the road and enhance the image of the road. And so on. The effect after installation is like a diamond set in the road. In case of dim light, the solar road stud light will automatically turn on the flashing function, and the effect will be more obvious in foggy and other weather. This is a new development of advanced technology such as high-efficiency solar panels and cast aluminum and plastic housings. In the past, some road studs needed to be connected to a power supply, and the solar road stud light optimizes the function of the road studs to a certain extent. Although small in size, they can withstand up to 30 tonnes in operation. The service life is usually around three years.
Once the cat eye road studs have been installed, the glue needs a period of time to cure in order to attach the studs tightly to the ground - 6-8 hours is recommended. In practice, however, many people remove the installation barrier less than two hours after installation; in such cases, if a vehicle crashes and rolls, the road studs can deform lightly or fall off. The mounting adhesive for the studs is epoxy resin. The cement and curing agent should be proportioned and mixed well in order to work. However, as epoxy resin glue condenses more severely in cold winter weather, mixing evenly is difficult, so it must be heated first to soften the glue before use.
