Solar Charge Control with Digital Display
What sets this panel aside from the competition is the solar charge controller with built in digital display which means no more cryptic LEDs and instant access to the charge status of your battery, accurate voltage level, charging current and confirmation of proper connection.

  • Monitor the state of charge of the battery;
  • Voltage and charging current (Amps) reading
  • Battery charge status
  • Easy error indication
  • Controls the charging process
  • Control the connection/disconnection of loads
  • Make sure Solar system works at proper condition.
  • Manual load switch with automatic re-start
  • This intelligent charge controller has temperature compensation and boost function to condition the battery and extends its life by preventing the build up of sulphate deposits on the plates inside the battery.
  • Perfect for use as a touring charger on motorhomes, caravans, boats and general battery charging. Suitable for sealed and open leisure batteries as well as Gel and SLA.

With 7 hours of suitable light per day at up to 5.71 Amps per hour this 100W panel gives up to 40 Amps per day, enough to stay off mains and run TV, water pump and lights for 5 or more hours per day.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What type of batteries can be used with the kit?

  •  Sealed lead acid battery
  • Gel battery
  • Flooded battery

Will the solar panels over charge my battery?

The charge regulator ensures that a steady charge is supplied to the battery and will not be over charged.

Can I extend /lengthen the battery lead?

If the lead is extended this can result in a loss of voltage and insufficient power transferred from the solar panels to charge the battery

How do I clean the solar panel?

Dust & dirt should firstly be swept off the panel surface using a soft brush and then use a wet cloth to wipe the panel surface to remove remaining dirt & grime. It is recommended that any bird droppings be removed as soon as possible as if left can cause damage to the surface.

 

Trouble shooting if system does not function

  • Check all connections to ensure they are secure and free from moisture & debris
  • Protection of solar charger controller:

 

PV Array Short Circuit

If PV array short circuit occurs, clear it to resume normal operation.

Load Short Circuit

Fully protected against load wiring short-circuit. After one automatic load reconnect attempt, the fault must be cleared by reapply power or pressing the setting switch.

Battery Reverse Polarity

Fully protection against battery reverse polarity, no damage to the controller will result. Correct the miswire to resume normal operation.

Overheating Protection

If the temperature of the controller heat sink exceeds 85°C, the controller will automatically start the overheating protection.

High Voltage Transients

PV is protected against high voltage transients. In lightning prone areas, additional external suppression is recommended.

    As caravanner we do a lot of rallies, one of my friends had purchased a fixed solar panel from Falcon and he found it very useful. I had got a Freedom caravan its very small but it does me on my own. Only thing was not much room on the roof for the fixed solar so after a chat with Falcon I bought the 100 watt folding system. What a difference it has made. This year I went to the Caravan nationals at Norfolk which if you want electric its a lot at £150 for a week. I was there for 8 days with my solar topped up my batteries a treat. I had my telly working lights etc and still my battery had charge at the end of the event. Since used it when out on the rallies a worthy addition to my camping kit. Martin Sampson Wiltshire.
