8. INSTALLATION AND ACTIVATION
The bollard should be installed on a hard flat surface: paving stones, concrete block,
decking, etc.
Fix the base to a foundation block or a buried accessory you can order separately (see
section 9. Accessories).
§
Precautions
If you plan to network a number of bollards:
•
check that each bollard is no more than 70 metres away from another
bollard on the same network
•
it is advisable to test networking before final installation to make sure the
bollards communicate with one another
•
for bollards installed along a path, make sure the bases of each bollard
face in the same direction, as indicated by an arrow on the base, so that
you can then select the lighting side uniformly for all the bollards (see
section 13. ADJUSTMENTS, Simple adjustments, Side)
§
General instructions
•
Unscrew the screws fixing the base to the housing
•
The bollard comes packed with two batteries: Insert the batteries into the bollard
(see section 11. BATTERIES)
•
Install the base using your chosen fixing method: fix to the ground with 3 M12
bolts or onto a block with the embedding accessory
•
When the base is firmly secured to its bearing element and the batteries are
inserted into the bollard, place the bollard on its base
•
Screw in the lateral screw retaining the housing to its base
11
§
Fixing on a block
1. Cast the embedding accessory in the
concrete, the fastening flange should be

OPERATING PRINCIPLES
The Alpha bollard is a self-powered outdoor light. Its power is supplied by a
photovoltaic collector (solar cell) located in the upper section of the bollard. The
energy is stored in built-in batteries.
The bollard turns on and off automatically according to ambient luminosity
In order to accumulate enough energy in the daytime to be able to come on at
night, it should be placed out of any shade in such a way that it receives
unobstructed sunlight directly on its top all day long.
Users can adjust night-time lighting to limit energy consumption and provide
effective markings at night for the necessary time.
In winter, we therefore recommend setting the number of hours during which the
bollard is lit based on sunset times (see section 13. Settings, Timer).
A bollard must be installed in accordance with the installation instructions. Once
fixed to the ground, it takes two or three days for the bollard to charge up direct
sunlight (in clear weather, Southern European conditions) in order to have enough
energy to proceed with the configuration and settings.
15
13.
SETTINGS
You control and adjust the Alpha bollard's settings with an infrared remote control,
supplied separately. Settings should be made in sufficiently dark conditions to
enable the bollard to come on automatically. While adjusting settings, users
should pay close attention to the light signals emitted by the bollards.
When first brought into service, bollards are standalone and thus not networked
(network code 0). At nightfall the bollard comes on and you can adjust the
settings, which will be memorized until you next adjust them.
Command Mode
To adjust settings you first need to switch the bollard to Command Mode.
•
Press and hold down any key for 6 seconds, pointing the remote control
at the bollard, which should be no more than 5 metres away.
•
The bollard will emit a short flash, indicating it is now in Command Mode
and ready to receive orders.
•
If the remote control is not used for 90 seconds, the bollard emits another
flash, indicating it is no longer in Command Mode.
Sequences
The bollard features two independent sequences (S1 and S2), which are sets of
brightness, colour, and other user-definable parameters.
Networking
The bollards can work in standalone mode or be networked. If several bollards
are networked, you can control any of them with the remote control for the entire
network. The bollard receiving orders from the remote control transmits them to
the other bollards on the same network when you press the confirm key on the
remote control. The network should only be controlled from one bollard at a time.

previous save and communicates them to the other bollards on the same
network. The bollard emits a green flash to confirm it has sent its settings to
the other bollards. If you do not
press any settings for 30 second, the
bollard reverts to its previous settings.
• Standalone bollards: simple changes in settings (colour, brightness, side,
choice of sequence, cycle) are saved without the need to confirm by pressing
Security code
If the bollard has a particular security code, enter it with the remote control before
adjusting the settings.

§
Networking
Alpha bollards can be networked, which allows you to adjust all their settings
without needing to move from one bollard to the next. Each bollard should be
between 1.5 m and 70 m from another bollard on the same network.
A network is a set of bollards that communicate by radio link and that share the
following identifiers: a security code and a network number. For bollards to be
part of the same network, they therefore need to be assigned the same network
number and the same security code.
Assigning different network numbers lets one user group bollards into separate
networks according to location, while retaining for instance the same security for
all the bollards. A network can have no security code, in which case settings can
be accessed directly.
For a bollard you have just added to a network to have the same settings as this
network, just go to another bollard on the same network, switch to Command
Mode then press OK
. This bollard's settings will be applied to all the bollards
on the same network, including those newly added to the network.
To assign a network number to a bollard:

twice
• A A A A A A or A B A B A B combinations are not accepted. If either of
these combinations is entered, the bollard emits a red flash when
is
pressed. So you need to repeat the current step to enter a valid number.
After 3 unsuccessful attempts, remote control access to the bollard is locked
for 2 minutes and the bollard reverts to its initial light settings
• If the security code is more than six digits long, only the first three are taken
into account.
• For networked bollards, the same security code must be entered for each
bollard of the same network.
20
§
Recovering the security code
If you lose the security code, it can be recovered in the form of six light
sequences emitted by the bollard. You communicate these six light sequences to
Geoled or an approved representative, who will communicate the code in return.
This procedure presupposes than Geoled can check that the user wishing to
recover the password is duly authorized to do so.
Recovering light sequences:
1. Switch to Command Mode;
2. The bollard emits red flashes;
3. Enter the sequence 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 on the remote control then confirm
with
;
4. The bollards flashes red and yellow alternately to indicate it has switched to
Recovery Mode;
5. To recover one of the six light sequences, press a number between 1 and 6;
6. Note the number of blue, red and green flashes. The sequence ends with a
long white flash;
7. Repeat from step 5 until you have noted down the flashes of all the light
sequences 1 to 6;
8. If a sequence of flashes has not been noted, just press the corresponding key
(1 to 6) to repeat it and note it down;
9. When you have noted down the flashes of all the sequence 1 to 6, enter
to exit the security code recovery procedure;
The bollard then flashes red, prompting you for the password. As you don't
know it yet, press
again to quit the recovery process.
After noting the six light sequences, send them to Geoled or its approved
representative and get the code in return, subject to the checks referred to at
the beginning of this section.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
1. If a bollard fails to light up at nightfall or during the night, check that:
a. the window above the photovoltaic cell is not obstructed from sunlight
(which recharges its batteries);
b. the bollard has not suffered any knocks that may have damaged its light
diffusers, solar collector or electronics;
c. the lighting duration after sunset has not already been exceeded (see
Settings/Timer section, page 18), in which case it is normal that it does
not come on. The bollard will come on again if you change the Timer
settings (increase the duration or switch to lighting all night long, for
instance) or when night falls again;
d. the bollard has been in direct sunlight for at least 12 hours in luminosity in
excess of 30 Klux for a minimum battery charge;
e. the batteries have been properly inserted as instructed in this manual
(see 11. BATTERIES).
2. If the bollard emits red flashes when you want to adjust its settings: the
bollard is protected by a security code, enter it to be able to adjust its settings.
3. If you cannot change the settings of one or more bollards (colour, brightness,
sequences, periods, networking, etc.), check that:
a. the bollards are in Command Mode before attempting to change any
settings or network configuration;
b. that a security code has been set and that you have entered it before changing
any settings;
c. if a bollard fails to follow the settings of a network, check that it has been
duly assigned to the said network.
4. If one or more bollards cannot be networked, check that:
a. they all satisfy the necessary conditions for charging their batteries (see
point 1 above);
b. that each bollard is no more than 70 metres away from another bollard on
the same network;
5. At dawn or nightfall, not all the bollards on the same network come on or go off
simultaneous, is that normal?
➟ Yes, each bollard activates its LEDs solely according to the luminosity received by
its solar collector, which may be slightly different from bollard to the next.
22
6. Colour cycle scrolling is not synchronized for the same network, is that normal?
➟ Yes, this function primarily serves to show the palette of colours displayed by the
Alpha bollard. Real-time synchronization of bollards on the same network is
unnecessary for marking or guidance applications. Bollards are networked solely to
share identical settings, to avoid the user having to move to each bollard to change
its settings.
7. Can networks with different, albeit similar, identifiers have their own settings
without any risk of interference?
➟ Yes, each bollard communicates only with its network, identified by its
network number (and the security code if one has been set).
