Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

1. A device for continuous illumination for complete indoor/outdoor lighting directly from Solar Panel consisting of DC current driven LED Lights, a set of Luminaire, a Grid with Auto Control and two 300 milliamp 12V Relay Switches;

wherein one of the Relay Switches is co-located with the Solar Panels for switching off solar input in case of lower solar insulation below an acceptable adjustable threshold resulting in triggering the 2nd Relay Switch co-located with the set of Luminaire to seamlessly switch over to the grid, thus catering for inadequacy in erratic solar insulation.

2. A device for continuous illumination as claimed in claim 1, wherein the solar panel is used as a sensor and is a particular panel built of low power, being connected to a Luminaire Load through a 12V 60 miliiamps Relay Switch used to switch off the solar input to the Auto Grid Control to determine illumination pattern to differentiate changes in dim/bright light conditions.

3. A device for continuous illumination as claimed in claims 1 and 2, wherein the input and output modes of the main solar panel are connected to a pair of Relay Switches in Normally Off (NO) mode in case of adequate supply of solar power and in Normally Connected (NC) mode in case of power shortage thereby disconnecting power transmitted to the Auto Grid Control.

4. A device for continuous illumination as claimed in claims 1 to 3, wherein the components in the arrangement of the Auto Grid Control consists of:

Balancing Resistors in Parallel 220 miliiamps;

Remnant 20 miliiamps as scope for dimming allowed by user;

a pot with variable resistance of 44 Ohms - 60 Ohms situated by means of a pre-set rotating switch to allow the user to configure the cut off point and to harness more solar energy albeit with a lesser illumination or define the acceptable illumination by cutting off the solar energy appropriately in order to cater for multiple illumination specifications.

5. A device for continuous illumination as claimed in claims 1 to 3, wherein a DC distribution box is used next to the Auto Grid Control where DC drivers are arranged duly sized for luminaire to be used on standard configuration pattern viz. 3W down lights NOs to 36W flat panels batched together.

6. A process for continuous illumination consisting of a Photovoltaic Sensor & Control and a coil, wherein:

the sensor panel provides power to the coil of the relay in the solar sensor;

the excess current provided by the sensor panel is drained by resistors parallel to the coil resulting in the presence of only a minimal amount of current therein;

the relay switches off when the solar irradiation reduces beyond a determinable threshold.

7. A process for continuous illumination as claimed in claim 6 consisting of Solar to Grid Tie-up Sensor & Control wherein:

the positive end of a DC adapter is connected to the Normally Connected (NC) mode and the positive end from the solar panel is connected to the Normally Off (NO) mode of the relay switches; the negative terminals are connected together with diodes;

a COM acts as the positive terminal for applications.

8. A device for continuous illumination as claimed in claims 1 to 5 substantially as herein described and exemplified.

9. A process for continuous illumination as claimed in claim 6 and 7 substantially as herein described and exemplified.
