The SP10R is a 10-W photovoltaic power source capable of recharging batteries. It has an on-board voltage regulator. The user-defined-length cable has stripped and tinned leads that connect directly to a user-supplied deep-cycle battery.
The SP10R is a sufficient charging source for many of our system configurations in tropical to temperate latitudes. It allows unattended operation of systems in remote locations, far from AC electrical sources.
The SP10R includes mounting hardware consisting of the #17492 U-bolt and Matching Nuts. The #17492 U-bolt provides a 2.125" (5.398 cm) space between the U-bolt legs. This hardware allows the solar panel to be mounted to a 0.75" to 1.5" IPS pipe (1" to 2" OD).
|-NOTE-||Solar panel characteristics assume 1 kW m-2 illumination and 25°C solar panel temperature. Individual panels may vary up to 10%. The output panel voltage increases as the panel temperature decreases.|
