Charge Controller & LED information lights
Includes the OptiMate Solar TM-522 2 Amp smart charge controller with 4 LED panel to provide comprehensive information on charging process and battery status.
OptiMate Solar charge kits are fully automatic. Mount the panel in a suitable location to receive maximum sunlight, hook up the charger-monitor to the battery and walk away. No more battery problems.
When the panel receives sun, the SOLAR CHARGE LED blinks confirming solar power is being delivered and one of the three battery status LEDs (SAVE, CHARGE, MAINTAIN) indicates charge progress. OptiMate Solar converts low solar energy to a high pulse charge which improves solar charge efficiency. When night falls or if the smart charger-monitor senses no solar power is being delivered it changes into a battery monitor with one of the three charge status lights now indicating battery status every three seconds.
The 20W TM-522-2 kit (12V 1.6A max.) is ideal for all vehicles with a 12V battery.
Each kit includes:
- fully weatherproof, high intensity poly crystalline solar panel
- solar panel corner mounts for easy wall or roof mounting
- outdoor rated OptiMate smart charger-controller (TM-522) with a 1m charge cable
- OptiMate O-1 weatherproof battery lead - 0.5m long (ring connectors for permanent battery connection - but easy to connect & disconnect with plug and socket included)
- OptiMate O-4 battery clamp lead - 0.5m long (crocodile clips for temporary battery connection)
Total length of cable from solar panel to the sae connector on the O-1 or O-4 battery lead is 3.15m (315cm). Use of the optional 4.6m extension cable takes this to 7.75m (775cm). In addition to this O-1 and O-4 battery leads are both 0.5m (50cm) long.
To connect via a vehicle's cigarette lighter socket please order optional adpater here: Optimate Cigarette Lighter Plug Adapter.
12V Solar Charger for small to medium electric fence energiser batteries
The 20W Optimate solar charger is useful for small, medium and large energisers and fencing runs. This 20W solar charger is powerful enough to meet charging requirements of larger electric fence energisers but is also useful for small electric fence systems where you cannot position the solar charger in an ideal un-shaded, south facing position or when adequate winter charging is important. The smaller 10W solar charger is likely to be underpowered for medium sized energisers when positioned in a less than perfect position particulalry in the darker winter months.
