Off-Grid Solar, Granite Belt

The above picture shows the 3 post mount solar arrays – 4.7 kW total used to supply the Selectronic SP Pro 5 kW inverter/charger (pictured below). Selectronic’s philosophy in designing a unit like this is very simple…if you chose to live off-grid you shouldn’t have to compromise on the amount of available power and should be have same amount available as your metropolitan counterparts.

The Selectronic SP Pro inverter/charger range can be connect up to 3 units together to combine their output. They also can be combined with a generator to  deliver the output rating of the inverter and generator. They can also start a generator automatically if more power is required.

The SP Pro can deliver a massive 15 kW for starting up motors in air-conditioners, washing machine spin cycles, deep bore pumps and anything with requires a large surge in power to get it going. In fact the SP Pro has over 200 settings from watering your lawn when it’s dry to turning on a security light while you’re away.

The deep-cycle battery bank (pictured below) supplies over 50 kW/hours of electrical energy. In the advent of overcast weather the owners still have continuous and reliable power. Once the sun shines again, the 4.7 kW array recharges the battery bank in less than 2.5 days, even whilst using power.
