This 150 Watt flexible solar panel kit contains everything you need to install the lightweight and semi flexible solar panel onto the deck of your boat or roof of your campervan, caravan or motorhome with a clean smooth finish with its reverse cable entry
The Flexi panel offers a wide range of advantages
Self-healing top surface The ETFE top layer gives the PV Logic Flexi extra resilience in really tough conditions. ETFE has a memory effect or self-healing capacity in the event the panel comes into contact with branches etc, thus ensuring any slight abrasions are healed within a few hours. The Flexi range can even be walked on! During production the ETFE is dimpled to further protect the panel and provide an anti-slip surface, particularly useful if the panel is fitted to a boat deck.
Each panel is assembled to ensure complete encapsulation. This ensures the 6 layer heavy duty laminate protects the solar cell circuit from extreme conditions. The junction box is also injected with special silicon, guaranteeing no water ingress.
Cells protected from hot spots
Where used on a camper van or boat, partial shading of a solar panel is typical. In these circumstances, heat build-up and damaging hot spots can occur leading to a significantly reduced life cycle of the panel. The larger 60w and 80w PV Logic Flexi panels have up to two shading diodes housed within the fully waterproof junction box to prevent this occurrence.
There are no square edges on a PV Logic Flexi! Rounded panel corners and a unique curved junction box provide superior adhesion, no snag lamination and no sharp edges. The junction box is mechanically fixed in addition to being bonded to the panel. Strain relief is provided for the fitted 4m UV stabilised PV cable ensuring it cannot be accidentally pulled from the junction box.
The Flexi range can be bonded to flat or slight curved surfaces (3cm curve per metre) such as painted aluminium, metal, GRP and fibreglass using Simson ISR 70-03. The aluminium layer is also pre-drilled with 4.5mm holes should the panel need to be mechanically fixed as well as or instead of bonding.
Warranty The Flexi range is setting new standards with a 5 year product and a 20 year performance warranty* .

Cell performance warranty states that at 20 years the output will be no less than 80% of new performance valuesâ€”ie the cell degradation rate will be no greater than 20% in 20 years.
The PV Logic MPPT Pro charge controller has been designed to deliver the highest possible power from any 12v or 24v solar panel into a 12v battery. MPPT (multi power point tracking) technology increases solar yield by up to 20% over a standard PWM charge controller by artificially modifying the voltage coming from the solar panel by actively matching it to suit what a battery or batteries require, whatever state of discharge they may be in. This advanced algorithm ensures that whatever the weather conditions, a solar panel or panels will deliver the maximum power to a battery/s and with the minimum of electrical losses.
In addition to its high performance, the MPPT Pro also provides charging and voltage protection for single and dual battery charge systems. Whether charging two leisure batteries or a leisure battery and a vehicle battery, the MPPT Pro concentrates power solely on the battery connected to its No 1 terminals until that battery is 70% charged and thereafter provides a simultaneous and equal charge to both batteries.
To ensure you have complete visibility of how your solar system is performing, a Bluetooth App has been developed which is free to download search pvmobilesuit in a devices app store â€“ and this links to the MPPT Pro allowing Apple or Android system users to see how their solar panel is performing and also data regarding either one or both batteries.
The MPPT Pro provides protection for a battery against overcharging for any solar panel or solar array up to 225w and is either an excellent choice for new installations or as an upgrade to an existing solar systems. Whether for leisure (caravan, motorhome, boat), industrial or solar off grid systems the MPPT Pro will more than pay back its cost through the extra power it delivers.
