NOTE - The 20a Victron in this kit has a 290w/20a output limit, but is fine with the 295w panel input.
We have chosen this to make a saving, because there is going to be very little to no loss in production if flat mounting in the UK.
If you wish to swap for the 30a, feel free, ensure you also swap the breaker for the 32a version to go with.
A solar charger gathers energy from your solar panels, and stores it in your batteries. Using the latest, fastest technology, SmartSolar maximises this energy-harvest, driving it intelligently to achieve full charge in the shortest possible time. SmartSolar maintains battery health, extending its life.
The SmartSolar charge controller will even recharge a severely depleted battery. It can operate with a battery voltage as low as 0 Volts, provided the cells are not permanently sulphated or otherwise damaged.
MPPT: Ultra Fast Maximum Power Point Tracking
By constantly monitoring the voltage and current output of your solar (PV) panels, MPPT technology ensures that every drop of available power is rinsed out of your panels, and harvested for storage. The advantage of this is most noticeable when the sky is partially clouded, and light intensity is constantly changing.
Remote Monitoring and Control
Remotely control and monitor the extensive features of your SmartSolar MPPT charger with built-in bluetooth by pairing it with your smartphone or other device via VictronConnect. If your installation is connected to the internet with a GX device, the Victron Remote Management Portal (VRM) provides access to the full power of your MPPT, anytime, anywhere; both VictronConnect and VRM are free to use. For remote installations - even when there is no internet connection nearby - you may be able to monitor your MPPT by connecting the GlobalLink 520.
295W MONOCRYSTALLINE SOLAR MODULE
The 54 cell, Black Plus is ideal for UK roofs due to its compact design that allows more panels to be installed in tighter spaces to maximise the solar potential of every roof. Black Plus Series is an excellent all-round module, which is sleek and robust. Proven performance, stylish appearance and high-efficiency monocrystalline PERC cells. Concealed link busbars at either end of the module provide a more elegant finish than other black modules on the market. Crafted with precision and expert skill, the Black Plus Series offers outstanding build quality and reliability.
Long Aluminium Mounting Brackets - Stick down on Boats - Rivet down on vans
Use one pair for up to 100w panels and 2 pairs larger panels. Three or more pairs for the largest panels over 2m long is highly recommended. Bear in mind judgement is important when using this guidance, each fit is different and you need to judge the best fit for yourself.
