RS 60wp Solar Panel Kit Bulk Pack
The 60wp Solar Panel Kit provides much higher power and is the only choice if considering long term caravan touring. Also useful for charging more power hungry consumer appliances such lap top computers, TVs and much more.
The 60 watt panel provides a continuous trickle feed maintaining and extending the life of any 12 volt battery
High efficiency crystalline cell for all weather charging
Perfect for powering colour pond pumps / fountains* and for use in larger caravans over a weeks period
Water resistant, robust construction for outdoor use.
20 year cell warranty and 10 year module warranty***
The 10Ah (STCC10) (RS 905-4532) Charge controller (sold separately) should be used with this kit to protect the battery from being overcharged and to prevent reverse current drain
* An inverter is required to power or charge 240Vac appliances - not included (RS 905-4532)
***Cell performance warranty states that at 20 years the cell output will be no less than 80% of new performance values – i.e the cell degradation rate will be no greater than 20% in 20 years
Solar Panels and Chargers
Solar photovoltaic panels use the power of the sun to generate electricity and can be used in a variety of applications from calculators to homes. They are most effective, versatile and cost saving in many commercial and leisure applications for charging 12/24V batteries.
Solar panels provide power through batteries at off grid and isolated locations and are widely used in critical telecommunications and telemetry applications. Solar panels enable rapid installation of equipment at remote sites, either temporary or permanent, avoiding the costs and inconvenience of grid connection. They are designed for very low maintenance and longevity.
How Much power?
The daily power production of a solar panel can be calculated by multiplying the panels peak power rating by between 0.5 and 6 depending on the time of year, angle and location. For example; an 80Watt solar panel produces a peak current of 4.55A.
Solar panels are usually installed at a 55-65° angle for optimal wintertime performance. For a year round power supply solar panels can be combined with Wind chargers.
Solar panels can be connected in parallel to increase power and in series to increase voltage.
To complete the system deep cycle batteries, a voltage regulator and electrical cables are required to get up and running. A range of convenient mounting kits are available for pole or wall mounting.
