Planning the installation.
Check your options for locating the solar panel
  • It will need to be in sunshine for as long as possible
  • Facing the sun (usually due south) at noon
  • There are no obstructions as they will adversly affect the performance
  • The suns altitude will change during the year and this also depends on the latitude. For the uk an angle of 65 degrees will be OK
  • It will need to be mounted on a rigit surface eg a vertical wall or a pole
Do not mount the panel
  • on a felt covered flat roof as the fixings may cause a leak
  • under trees or other obstructions which will restrict the sun on the panel
  • close to the ground where it may be damaged or vandalised
What can we expect.
  • On a sunny day you should expect an average charge of between 4 and 6 amps for most of the day
  • If it is sunny for 14 hours this will charge the battery with 56 to 84 AH which is enough to provide a full days cricket for most of our scoreboards
  • The panel will top up the battery whilst a game is in progress.
  • The current will be reduced in early mornings, late evenings and in the winter.
  • The control panel will automatically switch the scoreboard off if the battery volts are low
