With the ever increasing range of 12V appliances and accessories available to make camping and touring more comfortable, the drain on our batteries has never been greater.
12V solar panels provide an environmentally friendly, quiet, reliable and simple way to harness free energy from the sun. Today, modern technology provides more flexibility than ever when it comes to solar setups with a wide range of solar solutions available to suit your requirements.
Unlike domestic solar panels, Redarc monocrystalline panels are designed specifically for camping and caravanning with a 12V output. They are perfectly suited for the roof of your caravan, camper trailer or motor home and are designed to survive in even the harshest of conditions.
Monocrystalline solar panels offer the highest performance of all solar panel types, working in a variety of light conditions and are available in four popular sizes.
A Redarc monocrystalline solar panel kit is the simplest way to get started with solar power.
Each kit includes high performance monocrystalline solar panels mounted on a sturdy aluminium frame with fold out legs for versatile panel placement. All the benefits of the regular monocrystalline panels, with the added flexibility and portability of a folding and free standing design.
The stand-alone regulator allows you to relocate the regulator close to your battery and away from the heat of the solar panel. A cooler running regulator is more efficient and puts more power into your battery.
Each kit includes all of your solar charging needs in one bag, with your choice of a 90, 120 or 160 watt solar panel, regulator and LCD display monitor. Generous length cables allow the panel to bask in the sun while you stay cool in the shade.
The new REDARC solar blanket range allows anyone to become partially self-sufficient when travelling around Australia; relying on traditional camp sites with mains power sources is a thing of the past!
The range includes a flexible 112 watt red Solar Blanket Amorphous Cell and three black Solar Blanket SunPower® cells in 115, 150 and 190 watt power ratings. Portable and lightweight they can be easily moved around to capture the best energy output from the sun. The range is also smaller and lighter than a comparable wattage portable glass panel.
With amorphous solar panels laminated onto a durable canvas backing, these flexible panels are a third of the weight of comparable size folding solar panel kits and since there’s no glass to break they are a durable solar solution. Drape it over your windshield, awning or just spread it out on the ground – Redarc amorphous solar blankets are tough. And, when you’re finished using it just fold it up and store it in the boot.
Redarc also has a comprehensive range of solar accessories to complement your individual solar solution setup.
Never be left wondering how your solar panels and batteries are performing with a remote monitor attached to your solar regulator. Coupled with an optional temperature probe, you can be confident you are correctly measuring your solar solution’s performance.
Redarc solar regulators ensure that the power supplied by your solar panels is at the optimum voltage to charge your batteries, while the optional remote monitor ensures all vital information is readily available.
The Redarc solar range includes a wide variety of different cables and connectors to cater for a multitude of individual power setups.
Available with adapters to suit differing solar solutions and connection preferences, be they via Anderson plugs or alligator clips, all of the cables and connectors are designed to survive in even the harshest of conditions.
For permanent systems, Redarc also offers a range of mounting accessories and hardware. Ranging from adjustable aluminium mounting brackets that allow fixed panels to be mounted at the optimum angle for maximum performance to a range of side and corner mounts to allow secure fitment of panels to the roof of your vehicle, camper trailer or caravan.
