Stand Alone - Remote Area Power Systems
Springers Solar has a several years experience now designing and installing Off-Grid remote area power systems using solar power the primary source of power.
It is absolutely critical with RAPS systems that high quality, proven products and technology is used. It goes without saying that the failure to design these systems correctly with proven products can result in the loss of power to the home or property. The consequences of this could be dramatic and at the least costly and inconvenient.
Springers has selected and use the following major components in its RAPS stand alone solar power systems:
The FLEXmax family of charge controllers is the latest innovation in Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) charge controllers from OutBack Power Technologies. The innovative FLEXmax MPPT software algorithm is both continuous and active, increasing your photovoltaic array power yield up to 30% compared to non-MPPT controllers. Thanks to active cooling and intelligent thermal management cooling, both FLEXmax charge controllers can operate at their full maximum current rating, 60 Amps or 80 Amps respectively, in ambient temperatures as high as 104°F (40°C).
Included in all of the FLEXmax Charge Controllers are the revolutionary features first developed by OutBack Power, including support for a wide range of nominal battery voltages and the ability to step-down a higher voltage solar array to recharge a lower voltage battery bank. A built-in, backlit 80 character display shows the current status and logged system performance data for the last 128 days at the touch of a button. The integrated OutBack network communications allows FLEXmax series Charge Controllers to be remotely programmed and monitored via a MATE system display and provides unrivaled complete system integration.
FLEXmax MPPT Charge Controllers are the only choice when you demand a high performance, efficient and versatile charge controller for your advanced power system.
Springers use RAYLITE Solar, flooded cell - Deep Cycle batteries.
