Detailed Description

The SP85's mounting hardware provides two sets of U-bolts and nuts. One set contains the pn 17492 U-bolt that provides a 2.125" (5.398 cm) space between the U-bolt legs. It is used to mount the solar panel to a 0.75" to 1.5" IPS pipe (1" to 2" OD). The other set contains the pn 17446 U-bolts and matching nuts. The 17446 is used to attach the solar panel to a tower's legs. The 17446 provides a 1.5" (3.8 cm) space between the U-bolt legs.

One SP85 can be connected to the SOLAR charge input of the CH200 or 18529 SunSaver regulator to provide a peak charge of 85 W. Two SP85 solar panels can be wired in parallel to the charge inputs of the SunSaver 18529 regulator to provide a peak charge of 170 W. 

Specifications

-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.

Voltage at Peak 17.8 V
Dimensions 120.9 x 53.7 x 5.0 cm (47.6 x 21.1 x 2.0 in.)
Weight 7.7 kg (17.0 lb)

Compatibility

One SP85 can be connected to the SOLAR charge input of the CH200 or SunSaver 18529 regulators to provide a peak charge of 85 W. Two SP85 solar panels can be wired in parallel to the charge inputs of the SunSaver 18529 to provide a peak charge of 170 W.
