Solar charging kits for security and alarm systems
An increasing amount of security and alarm systems are required in remote locations, where there is no mains power available. Recent examples include: a shipping container in Felixstowe requiring protection 24/7; CCTV monitoring a remote holiday chalet in Spain; and an alarm system fitted to an electronic gate. In all of these instances, complete solar charging kits were capable of running the alarm or security system.
We can provide all of the different parts of your solar charging kit that you will need to keep you safe and secure:
Kits based on framed solar panels are the best value option - and they can be mounted at an angle to get more sun. Depending on how long you require power (be it for 2 hours everyday, or 24 hours everyday), you will need to work out the current draw of your security device and then pick a suitable sized solar panel that can generate this amount. The larger the panel - the more power can be harvested from the Sun!
50W Midsummer Compact All-Black Solar Charging Kit
The smallest solar panel per watt you can get! The compact design and all-black aesthetic allow this kit to be used in any application where space and looks are important. Kit includes: 50W all-black, framed solar panel, PWM controller (other regulators available), solar cables and battery cable harnesses. Suitable for 12V battery systems.
160W Midsummer Mono Solar Charging Kit
A 160W solar charging kit using our own high-efficiency monocrystalline Midsummer Panels - the best value for small to medium installations. Kit includes: 160W mono panel, 20A MPPT controller, solar cables and battery cable harnesses. Suitable for 12V or 24V systems.
250W Sapphire 12V/24V Solar Charging Kit
A 250W solar charging kit using our high build quality, polycrystalline Sapphire Panels - the best value for medium to large installations. Kit includes: 250W poly panel, MPPT controller, solar cables and battery cable harnesses. Suitable for 12V or 24V off-grid systems.
All of our solar kits are only suitable for charging batteries. Most security devices can be run directly from a 12V battery, and we suggest Gel batteries due to their hard resistance to cold weather, ability to stand on their side as they are non-spillable, and maintenance free qualities.
Rolls S-480 6V 375Ah battery
The Rolls 4000 series of batteries are ideal in heavy duty, off-grid applications. With up to a 7 year warranty. 6V 375Ah.
12V 115Ah Crown Battery
A 12V 115Ah battery designed especially for renewable energy systems
Haze 55Ah Gel 12V Battery
A good quality 55Ah gel battery with many advantages over standard leisure batteries.
Haze 120Ah Gel 12V Battery
The Haze 120Ah gel battery is perfect for large remote power projects, yachts and vehicles, particularly when spillage must be avoided.
Some security alarms, devices and security lights require 230V AC, like the power you get from a wall socket in your home. This can be easily obtained from one of our inverters, but beaware - these devices add their own power draw to your system and will require a much larger solar power system to cope, as a result. We would recommend our most efficient inverter - the Victron Phoenix 180W pure sine wave inverter.List of links...
