Solar Panels & Regulators

We supply and can install solar panels for your vehicle or even your caravan. We use quality Redarc Monocrystalline Solar Panels & Solar Regulators/Controllers and also Thunder Monocrystalline Solar Panels & Solar Regulators/Controllers.

We also have a range of low output OEX Amorphous panels for battery maintenance and some Projecta solar Regulators/controllers!

We get asked a lot about panel sizes and what is the best to use. As everyone's setup/usage is different this can be a tricky call. However, for most of our customers, we recommend an 80 watt panel as a good base line/starting point. Opting for a slightly larger regulator (20 or 30 amp) this allows you to easily add a second panel if so needed in future.

Redarc standard monocrystalline flat panels are highly efficient with a robust design. A tempered glass coating and a sturdy aluminium frame ensure that these panels will withstand harsh road conditions and extreme weather conditions. Each panel is tested at time of manufacture to conform to CE standards, so you can be sure that the panel output is exactly as described in its specification. Also requires solar controller/regulator.

Features:

• Monocrystalline construction

• Strong Aluminium Frame

• Tempered glass coating

• Diode protected

• 5 year structural warranty

• 25yr/80% efficiency warranty

Solar Panel Mounting Accessories

Redarc offers a range of accessories designed to make mounting and installing your solar panels as easy as possible. The ABS Plastic mounting system is simple and easy to install and fits any panel size in the Redarc selection. Corner mounts are designed to provide a stable mounting for any size of standard solar panel. Side mounts are designed for mounting multiple panels together. Spoiler mounts are designed to reduce any wind noise whilst travelling. The Aluminium mounting kit allows you to adjust the angle of your solar panels. Direct sunlight on your panels increases the amount of power they will produce. The cable glands make it easy to wire your solar panel setup into your Caravan, Trailer or RV with a sealed entry.

Used to connect solar panel cabling to an anderson plug. This also allows you to custom make cables (instead of pre made cables) to the specific size for your application without cutting off the plugs on your solar panel (which can void warranty).

RedarcSolar Control

These are the solar controllers on offer from Redarc. Depending on the panels you use determines which controller to use for your application.

REDARC solar regulators ensure that the power supplied by your solar panels is at the right voltage to charge your house or auxiliary batteries. Redarc regulators are suitable for charging up to two separate battery banks and come in both 10A and 20A models. These regulators come with an informative, user friendly remote monitor which allows you to keep track of what your solar panels are producing and the state of your battery. 

Features:

• Multi-stage charging

• Dual battery outputs

• LED indication

• Remote monitor (optional)

• Remote temperature sensor (optional)

• 2 year warranty
