SunWare Solar Panels

Quick Overview

The Sunware Series 20 solar modules are specifically designed to be lighter, more compact and more powerful that the previous generation Sunware solar panels. The Series 20 solar panels include high performance solar cells with an EVA laminate and ETFE coating for improved durability, even in harsh applications like sea buoys or other salt water marine environments. Solar cells are hermetically encapsulated and the cable outlet is completely sealed to the mounting plate. These solar panels are ideal for remote logging applications, eg weather buoys or other off-grid marine environments, to provide a regular recharge to the logging systems batteries.

Available in power ranges from 25W to 100W

Details

The Sunware Series 20 solar modules are more powerful, compact and lighter than the previous Sunware Marine and Compact solar panels. The solar cells are protected with an EVA laminate and ETFE coating to protect them from water ingress. The modules are specifically designed for the harsh marine and salt water use. The cable outlet is screwed to the mounting plate, completely sealed and 100% saltwater proof. By hermetic encapsulation cells and carrier plate are themselves well protected against the aggressive saltwater.

The junction box on the module is located on the front of the panels with a 3m cable. A convenient hole located next to the junction box to allow the cable to be safely pushed through to behind the panel for easier installation.

The carrier material is an Aluminium sandwich core. The new core material ensure the cells are perfectly supported and protected. The solar module can adapt to curved surfaces, with maximum curvature of 3cm/m module length. All modules can be screwed, glued or attached with clips and the module package includes white screw rosettes for countersunk screws to prevent damage to the module laminate by the screw head.

Features

  • 100% sea- & saltwater resistant
  • Non-Glass-module with unbreakable Nowoflon foil
  • Light-weight mounting plate made from aluminium sandwich, powder-coated white
  • Cable output screwed, sealed and utterly water proof, with strain relief at the cable outlet
  • Crystalline cells of highest performance class for maximum power
  • Ultraflat module construction (5mm), at cable output max. 16mm
  • Connection cable of 3m length
  • On the side, the laminate overhangs the mounting plate by approx. 5mm for a maximum of corrosion protection
  • Rounded corners to prevent risk of injuries
  • Structured surface reduces slip risks when wet
  • 100% maintenance-free, self-cleaning surface
  • Installation: without rear ventilation because modules are equipped with 39 or 40 cells
  • Walkable when installed on a solid surface (using boat shoes)
  • Modules can be slightly bent till max. 3% (3cm/1 meter)
  • 3 years warranty on power output

Please note that the power output of solar modules depends directly from the light intensity - not heat - and has strong seasonal fluctuations. For optimal performance, the module should be oriented, as far as possible, perpendicular to the sun and partial shade should be avoided. The cells in a module are connected in series, which means that if one cell is shaded, the whole chain is restricted and output is reduced to the level of the shaded cell. However, even in diffused light conditions or even in winter, the modules produce a high charging current.

If you need any help in selecting the correct size of panel, please contact us with details on your power requirements and we can advise on which panels would be most suitable for your own power requirements and geographical location.
