The SP10-PW is a 10 W photovoltaic power source capable of recharging batteries. Its 6.1 m (20 ft) cable terminates in a connector that attaches to a Campbell Scientific prewired enclosure. The connector in the enclosure then leads to a power supply or battery base to recharge the battery, allowing unattended operation of systems in remote locations, far from ac electrical sources.

This solar panel has a sufficient charging source for many of our system configurations in tropical to temperate latitudes.

Benefits and Features

  • Supplies electrical power in locations where ac power is unreliable, expensive, or not available
  • Quick, secure connection to Campbell prewired enclosures for more efficient setup
  • Recharges the sealed rechargeable battery of a PS150, PS200, BP12 (requires CH150 or CH200), BP24 (requires CH150 or CH200), CR3000, CR5000, CR6, or CRVW3

Detailed Description

The SP10-PW 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].


-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.
Maximum Peak Power 10 W
Current at Peak 0.59 A
Voltage at Peak 16.8 V
Dimensions 41.9 x 26.9 x 2.3 cm (16.5 x 10.6 x 0.9 in.)
Weight 2.1 kg (4.6 lb)



The SP10-PW is intended to recharge 12 V Gel Cell or AGM lead acid batteries such as the batteries used with the PS150, PS200, BP12, BP24, CR3000, CR5000, and CR6. It is not intended for user-supplied 12 V flooded batteries such as deep cycle marine or RV batteries.

Frequently Asked Questions

Number of FAQs related to SP10-PW: 1

  1. 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.
