Product Details

RS PRO PV Logic Flexi Solar Panel

From the trusted RS PRO brand, the PV Logic Flexi solar panel is well suited for use where a super robust, low profile and lightweight panel is needed, or the substrate to which the panel will be fixed has a slight curve. Ideal for marine buoys, boat decks and camper vans. Each panel is assembled to ensure complete encapsulation. This ensures the 6 layer heavy duty laminate protects the solar cell circuit from extreme conditions. The junction box is also injected with special silicon, guaranteeing no water ingress

Features and Benefits

Self-healing top surface Completely waterproof Cells protected from hot spots Superior design: No square edges Easy fix

Applications

Solar photovoltaic panels use the power of the sun to generate electricity and can be used in a variety of applications from calculators to homes. They are most effective, versatile and cost-saving in many commercial and leisure applications for charging 12/24V batteries. Solar panels provide power through batteries at off-grid and isolated locations and are widely used in critical telecommunications and telemetry applications. Solar panels enable rapid installation of equipment at remote sites, either temporary or permanent, avoiding the costs and inconvenience of grid connection. They are designed for very low maintenance and longevity.

How Much Power?

The daily power production of a solar panel can be calculated by multiplying the panels peak power rating by between 0.5 and 6 depending on the time of year, angle and location. For example; an 80Watt solar panel produces a peak current of 4.55A.

What is the best way to install solar panel systems?

Installing solar panels at a 55-65° angle increases optimal wintertime performance. For a year-round power supply, solar panels can be combined with wind chargers. Solar systems can be connected in parallel to increase power and in series to increase voltage. To complete the system deep cycle batteries, a voltage regulator and electrical cables are required to get up and running. A range of convenient mounting kits are available for pole or wall mounting.

Do solar panels work on cloudy days?

To optimize solar energy generation, solar power panels and charging implements work most effectively in direct sunlight. They can still charge on cloudy days, though it will not provide as much power.

Note

All of our semi flexible panels will only bend from the top (has the cable and logos) to the bottom a maximum of 10% of panel length.Bending the panel greater than this or trying to bend the panel from left to right will possibly damage the panel and also invalidate your warranty
