The award winning range of solar panels designed in Sweden by SUNBEAMsystem.
There are 4 ranges available, the TOUGH series have a 5 year manufacturer's warranty, the CLASSIC and Standard ranges have a 2 year manufacturer's warranty. There are models for either deck mounting or detachable versions for spray hoods and bimini use.
The type of plastic used in the standard range has UV protection will last up to 10 years and the TOUGH series has extra UV protection that lasts up to 20 years. We recommend TOUGH for use in the Caribbean and/or Mediterranean where the UV is particularly high compared to the UK and/or Northern Europe.
Controlling the power
In addition to your solar panel or panels, you will need a controller in order to manage the charging of your batteries. We recommend the intelligent control provided by an MPPT device and will guide you to the appropriate size for your system e.g. a 10amp MPPT will manage up to 130 watts of panel, 20amp for up 260 watts or the 40amp takes you up to 520 watts. These stop your battery from being overcharged and stop other charging systems from damaging your solar panels.
Semi-permanent attachment on any surface.
SUNBEAMsystem QuickFix with locked snap fasteners - German made LOXX in stainless steel. Used with the corresponding LOXX product for canvas or hard surface - available separately. The solar panel will semi-permanently attach and only be moved by choice.
SUNBEAMsystem QuickFix is available with both Tough and Standard surface 50W panels. The Tough surface features a longer life expectancy than traditional materials. The light transmittance of the surface is higher than pure glass resulting in slightly higher performance of the solar panel.
If the intended use is a bimini or canvas on a fast going motorboat. We recommend that you choose to add the Sunzip Backing which will distribute the forces on the canvas in heavy wind.
