The SP10 is a 10-W photovoltaic power sources capable of recharging batteries. Its 6.1 m (20 ft) cable has stripped and tinned leads that connect to the PS150, PS200, CH150, CH200, or battery base of the CRVW3, CR3000, CR5000, CR7, CR9000X, or CR6. The SP10 has a sufficient charging source for many of our system configurations in tropical to temperate latitudes. It allows unattended operation of systems in remote locations, far from AC electrical sources.Read More
The SP10 includes mounting hardware consisting of one pn 17492 U-bolt and matching nuts. The U-bolt has a 5.398 cm (2.125 in.) space between the U-bolt legs. This hardware allows the solar panel to be mounted to a 0.75 in. to 1.5 in. IPS pipe [25.4 to 50.8 cm (1 to 2 in.) OD].
A 788 connector must be soldered onto the solar panel leads to use the SP10 with a 21XL rechargeable base.
|-NOTE-||Solar panel characteristics assume 1 kW m-2 illumination and 25°C solar panel temperature. Individual panels may vary up to 10%. The output panel voltage increases as the panel temperature decreases.|

Multiple SP10 solar panels can be used together if required. For assistance with this type of installation, contact Campbell Scientific.
Regulators control the current flowing to the battery and prevent the battery current from flowing to the charging source. These solar panels do not include an on-board voltage regulator, so a stand-alone regulator would be required to complete a power supply.
Typically, these solar panels are connected to a CH100, CH200, PS100, or PS200, as well as to the battery base of a CR3000 or CR5000. The PS100 and the PS200, as well as the battery base of the CR3000 and CR5000, include an internal regulator.
