160W Midsummer Polycrystalline Solar Charging Kits
This 160W Midsummer polycrystalline solar charging kit is suitable for medium off-grid installations. In motorhomes, caravans and liveaboard boats, it should be capable of keeping a 12V battery charged with minimal-medium usage (such as LED lights; small 12V TV; small 12V fridge; water pump; phone charging).
This kit contains:
160W Polycrystalline Midsummer Energy Solar Panel.
20A Tracer-A MPPT solar charge controller - 20% more power
1.5m 4mm2 20A Fused Harness
Pair of 3m solar cables with MC4 connectors
The 160W polycrystalline solar panel has a sturdy 35mm silver frame protects some of the highest quality glass available. Good glass permits better light transmission and thus higher energy yields. The polycrystalline solar cells are manufactured to stringent standards. The backing sheet that coats the back of the solar panel is durable and weather-tight ensuring many years of performance. A sturdy junction box coupled with double-insulated solar cables ensures effective energy transference. The cables are fitted with the industry standard MC4 compatible connectors.
To effectively charge your 12V or 24V battery bank you will need a solar regulator. We provide only high quality regulators from industry leaders. This kit comes with the fantastic Tracer-A MPPT 20A from EPsolar. We have been working with EPsolar for many years and have always been impressed with the high quality of their products. This small 20A regulator builds on the great performance of the BN series whilst improving conversion efficiency and including a built-in LCD display, allowing keeping an eye on generation that much easier compared to older generations.
Conversion inefficiencies exceeding 98% and high speed maximum power point tracking (MPPT) ensure little to no power whatsoever is lost from your solar system. Protection measures include battery short circuit, reverse polarity and overcharge protection as well as temperature compensation (using optional temperature sensor) to ensure batteries last as long as they should. This regulator can also be connected to a PC, combined with the free to download Solar Station Monitor Software you can view and log your solar panels performance.
To connect this kit to your 12V system you will need suitable cables. We provide two x 3m cables with MC4 connectors on to enable you to connect the panel to the regulator. We also provide a suitable 1.5m 20A harness to connect the regulator to your battery bank.
