1481 X 669 X 35 mm.
The 1 KW solar panel kit includes a set of six 170 watt Monocrystalline solar modules.
A 60-Amp, 5-stage PWM charge controller.
A pre-assembled wiring harness.
Two, 3-port roof caps. To easily add more POWER!
A pre-wired fuse between battery and charge controller for safety.
6 Sets of solar panel mounting feet – The clamp style allows easy removal for servicing
Digital LCD display with remote display option.
Amps: 60 A.
Lithium Compatibility: Yes.
Remote Display Compatible: Yes - Remote Display Included.
Battery Temperature Sensor Compatible: Yes.
Mounting Options: Surface mount only.
The 1kw solar panel comes with a pre-wired kit complete with ring terminals and fuses.
This includes a UV-resistant wire to connect from the roof cap to the charge controller. Also, a UV-resistant wire connects from the controller to the battery.
The fuse block is for safety and protection of the 1Kw solar panel.
The roof caps make it an easy
When expanding it is a case of
plugging the extra panel into the roof cap.
Install the remote display away
from the 60 Amp controller. You can then check the LCD display on the charge
This is a durable frame. It is corrosion-resistant and ensures extended outdoor use for several decades.
This is an Omni mount frame. You do not need pre-drilled holes. You can mount the mounting feed anywhere on the frame. You slide it into the perfect position to mount the panel.
The 1Kw solar panel frames come with superior rigidity. It is strong and has infinite mounting options.
With the easy release mounting feed, it becomes so easy to remove a panel when you need to do so.
The frames are of high quality with aluminum walls. This is to ensure that the panels can withstand heavy snow loads and high-speed winds.
The frame is IP67 rated.
To make the 1kw solar panel fully operational we need a charge controller, battery and an inverter.
The 1 Kw solar panel system comes with a 60 Amp charge controller
Size the battery by dividing the total watt by volts.
This is 1020 watt x 5 hours sunlight ( Depending on your area.) X .85 for losses/ 12 volt x 2 for DOD.(Depth of discharge.)
This is 1020 x 5 x .85 / 12 x 2 = 722 Amp Hours .
A 750 Ah battery will be a good choice. In this case it could be best to buy 4 X 200 Ah batteries. Connect them in parallel and we will have a steady 800 Ah battery bank for our 1 Kw solar panel system.
Size the inverter by deciding the max watts to be utilized at once.
The max output of the panel is 1020 watt.
Rule of thumb is to use an inverter 1.25 to 1.5 times more than max watts.
In this case we can work with a 1020 x 1.5 = 1530 watt. A 1500 watt inverter will be a good choice.
Use it for off-grid applications when and where needed.
The Omni Mount frame as well as in the Omni feet make it easy to install.
The solar cables are for use between the modules and the charge controller. Also between the controller and battery. It makes the system flexible and easy to install.
The only maintenance that you as a user have to do is making sure the cables are not damaged. This is to ensure a good working condition.
Cleaning the surface of the a solar panel is also very important. Use a damp cloth to perform this duty.
If necessary you can buy a proper solar cleaning liquid.
You can also buy a a convenient solar brush for cleaning the surface of the panel.
A dirty panel leads to a big drop in efficiency.
A professional person must perform all other maintenance functions.
Remember the order of connection on the 1 kw solar panel is very important.
This 1kw solar panel system is
worth the money. The panels are well built. The frames are sturdy and well
manufactured. It ensures long years of use in outside and harsh weather
These panels are good and
strong and provide good amps for recharging your batteries.
The charger seems small, but that is not an indicator of quality. It is reliable and the performance is excellent.
Remember you have to cover the panels with a blanket or something while you are installing. This is to avoid any electric shock.
The 1KW solar panel system is good for several power applications. You do not have the hassle of laying expensive cabling.
Convenient with a quick and easy setup.
