The SP305-L 305 W Solar Panel is a photovoltaic power source capable of recharging batteries. It is used in systems that require high-power solar panels. The SP305-L allows unattended operation of systems in remote locations, far from ac electrical sources. The cable length for the solar panel is user-selectable.
To use this solar panel, a CH400 charge regulator or equivalent, based on the SP305-L output and battery bank being charged, is required.
For ease with mounting the solar panel to the mast and leg braces of a CM106B tripod, mounting hardware is available as an accessory item.
The SP305-L comes with 1 m (3.28 ft) of cable pre-attached. When ordering the solar panel, specify a cable length in feet that is in addition to the 1 m (3.28 ft) length of pre-attached cable. If you do not desire a longer cable, select "0" (zero) for the cable length, and a set of mating MC4 connectors will be included for you to make your own cable.
