The SP40 is a 40 W solar panel. It is often used for system configurations that have higher-than-average power requirements, or in higher elevation and latitude locations. It connects to Campbell Scientific power supplies and battery bases to recharge the battery, and it allows unattended operation of systems in remote locations that are far from ac electrical sources.Read More
The SP40 uses the regulator in the PS150, PS200, CR3000, CR6 to recharge their batteries. The SP40 has a 5 m cable with stripped leads that connect to the power supply or datalogger battery base.
The SP40 is supplied with a regulator. It can recharge a user-supplied deep-cycle battery. This solar panel has a 5 m cable with stripped leads that connect to the battery. Please note that, the SP40 draws a continuous 5 mA current drain.
The SP40 and larger standard panels are supplied with a Solar Panel Multi-Fit bracket (Part number 006607). This is a substantial bracket that fits many different sizes of panels by simply clamping under the rear lip of the frame at either side of the panel (it works with panels up to 500 mm internal width). This allows easy exchange of the panel in the field, e.g. to upgrade to a larger size panel.
|-NOTE-||Solar panel characteristics assume 1 kW m-2 illumination and 25°C solar panel temperature. Individual panels may vary up to 10%. The output panel voltage increases as the panel temperature decreases.|
