MPPT

MPPT regulator from the SmartSolar range, manufactured by Dutch company Victron Energy - one of the market leaders in solar power electronics equipment. This 50A MPPT charge controller is capable of providing significantly more power to a battery bank from the solar array, compared to conventional PWM charge controllers, in addition to maximising the battery lifespan. The in-built Bluetooth enables you to see how your solar panels are performing on your Smartphone using the Victron Connect App.  

Mounting

This kit includes our ever popular adjustable tilt mounts - telescopic tilt legs enable adjusting of the panel angle to help your solar charging kit perform better when the sun is lower in the sky. Check out the instructions linked in the Tell Me More box above. 

Connections

The 7m PV cables have been specified due to the constraints of trunking through the roof and down to the controller and batteries, but if you don't need that length, simply cut it down. If you need longer cables let us know.

NB: John at 'Never Enough Cruising' specified the requirements of his kit - whereas yours may differ. Space availability on narrowboats is always difficult so please measure the space available to you. Different panels are now offered. Also, the cable lengths are adequate for his needs but you may need longer lengths if running to a different place on your boat.
