Choose the best……cutting edge technology
Not all solar panels are equal. At Solar Technology we use only the finest crystalline silicon technology, which is more efficient and long lasting than other solar cell structures. This is particularly true for low light conditions, making it the best choice for our cloudier climate.
How it Works
Put simply, the solar panel charges your caravan, motorhome or boat battery during daylight hours. The power in the battery is available for use at any time to power applications directly if powering 12v appliances or through an inverter if powering 240v appliances. The system will work even in overcast weather conditions, both in summer and winter.
The PV Logic Solar Panel Rooftop Kits range from 20wp to 150wp and has been designed for simple installation. These solar panels are ideal for a range of uses; from preventing battery drain in a caravan to creating energy self sufficiency. Each Panel Rooftop Kit includes step by step instructions, as well as customised bracket for practical stylish fitting. As a Premier Dealer Homestead Caravans based in Essex can arrange retro-fitting of these Solar Panel Rooftop Kits in their state-of-the-art workshop facilities.
Homestead Caravans have found the most popular models to be the 80w & 100w PV Logic Solar Roof Top Kit (Premium ABS Profile Roof Kit). The PV Logic Solar Panel features a high efficiency crystalline cell for “all weather” charging encased in a corrosion resistant tough aluminium frame, complete with 4 ABS mounting brackets, all cables and connectors together with 12v/24v Dual Battery Charge Controller and full easy to follow assembly instructions.
Paul Hull Homestead Caravans Workshop Director was impressed with the premium quality and affordability of the Solar Panel Rooftop panels and the fact that the Premium ABS Profile Roof Kit allows the solar panel to be removed easily from the mounting brackets, should this be required for any reason in the future, rather than trying to prise off a solar panel that has been glued directly to the caravan or motorhome roof panel, with the possible mess and damage that may occur.
The PV Logic Fold Up Solar Panel is fully portable and does not require fixing to the caravan or motorhome roof, it connects directly to the caravan and motorhomes leisure battery and folds into a tough and portable briefcase. It can be located outside the caravan or motorhome to face the sun by means of adjustable support legs. The PV Logic Fold Up Solar Panel is available in 40W, 60W and 90 Watt from Homestead Caravans in-store or online.
This range of fold up solar panels is perfect for anyone looking for a highly portable system which is quick and easy to use. Each panel has its own integrated stand, charge controller and battery connectors, so all you need to do is open it up, stand it up and connect it to your battery for instant power. These rugged, weatherproof panels are supplied with a premium padded carry bag.
Solar Technology International have produced an extremely helpful step by step guide Calculating your solar power requirements’ which gives a simple explanation on how to calculate the solar panel size you require for your caravanning and motorhome needs. This chart can be found under our Buyers Guides section on our website.
Why choose PV Logic Solar Panels from Solar Technology International?
Our semi-automated ISO9001 compliant production line reduces manual handling to a minimum which results in consistently high quality output. Each panel is 100% electrically and mechanically tested in accordance with TUV Rhineland and IEC 61215 standards and our test equipment is calibrated regularly to ensure consistent compliance with these standards. In addition all panels are electro luminescence tested to ensure there are no life shortening micro cracks in the cell circuit and this rigorous test procedure enable us to provide a robust warranty.
All crystalline panels are guaranteed to withstand the effects of salt water spray, frost, hailstones, ammonia, dust and sand in the globes harshest of environments from -40 to +80 degrees C. PV Logic Rigid panels have a 10 year frame integrity warranty in addition to having a 20 year cell warranty and a 30 year plus life cycle.
Each panel has a unique bar code which contains the DNA of the panel from the electrical test data taken during production to the components used in the construction. This gives each panel total provenance enabling us to conduct ongoing batch testing of panels in the field to ensure long term compliance with our warranties.
Lightweight and Efficient
We us only A grade cells to ensure the delivery of maximum power in all spectrum's of light but with the smallest overall dimension. This results in a more compact, robust and lighter solar panel. Increased spacing between the cells and frame edge also results in improvements in yields by up to 2.5%.
