Solis Energy debuts LPT140 to provide power to wireless access points, security cameras and IoT devices, from a streetlight

Solis Energy, provider of continuous outdoor power generation and connectivity technology, has developed a new light pole power tap designed for smart city and Internet of Things (IoT) deployments.

The new light pole power tap, the LPT140, allows users to access power from streetlights for powering surveillance cameras, WiFi hotspots, traffic monitors, IoT devices, decorative holiday lighting and more.

The LPT features integrated surge protection, a UV-resistant enclosure built to withstand extreme weather conditions and temperature variations, a locking quick-connect adapter for easy cable changes in the field, and a rubber gasket underneath to protect the light pole’s socket from weather. It is a rugged, utility grade component designed for reliable, long term use.

The LPT140 is fully compatible with both ANSI C136.10 three conductor twist-lock photocell receptacles and ANSI C136.41 seven conductor twist-lock dimming photocell receptacles, and will not interfere with the functionality of photocell controllers.

Orlando-based Solis Energy is a privately held manufacturer of outdoor power products including solar generators, battery backup systems and power conversion components.

Solis Energy’s products offer reliable, rugged, flexible and cost-effective outdoor powering solutions available. Established in 2005, and with thousands of systems installed, the company’s products today power vital applications and devices for public utilities, state/local/municipal government, airports, telecommunications companies and corporate enterprises.

“Streetlights and parking lot lights are ubiquitous and often the preferred location for deployments of IoT devices, communications equipment and security cameras,” said Solis Energy’s president Robert Reynolds. “The LPT140 allows for fast and easy installation of this equipment.”
