Product Details

RS 5wp panel Bulk Pack

The 5wp panel is ideal to prevent battery drain in caravans, motor homes and boats. It contains a reverse feed diode to prevent back feed and is supplied with all the necessary cable, connections and detailed instructions.
The ideal choice to prevent battery drain. The 5 watt panel provides a continuous trickle feed maintaining and extending the life of any 12 volt battery. The 5 watt solar panel is fitted with a blocking diode to prevent reverse current drain

High efficiency crystalline cell for “all weather” charging
Perfect for battery maintenance and off grid lighting projects
Water resistant, robust construction for outdoor use.
In built diode protects against battery discharge
20 year cell warranty and 10 year module warranty**

Note

The 5W panel kit does not require a charge controller if the battery to be used is larger than 35Ah
**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 panel’s 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 Installation

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.

Grid Connect Kits:

Solar Energy Kits to supply grid connected electricity, offsetting electricity used are available through Product Plus. These roof mount type systems start at less than 8 square metres for 1kW.
