Let me share you the useful info. here for your reference.


There is a simple way to know the Lighting range:

    Crosswise Lighting range=Pole height*2.5*2

      (It determines the installation distance bettween lights Normally, we suggest to make it 5-10M overlapped to make sure the lighting effect.)

    Lengthways Lighting range=Pole height*1.5

     (It determines how wide a road could be covered.)

In LED lighting industry, we have professional tool DIALUX to simulate the actual lighting effect according to the IES file of street lights.

We can see if your installation design is appropriate.


For Instance: 120W All in one solar street lights installed on 10M height and with 50M distance as bellow, the distance is so long that cause a long dark area too. 

- It's not appropriate for the actual lighting.
