Description

These weather-proof systems are ideal for remote applications. If you have a radio, monitoring device, Wi-Fi, security camera, telemetry, or lighting application our pre-packaged solar electric systems are perfect for your needs. They are also used in many custom applications where 12VDC, 24VDC or 120VAC is needed in a remote or portable environment.

Because these systems are shipped as complete, easy to assemble systems, they dramatically decrease the cost of installation. Just mount the solar modules and enclosure and connect the components with standard conduit and wiring. After that, you're ready to run your application with little or no maintenance.

Reliable, Industrial Quality Design

Every complete solar power system includes solar modules, support structure, sealed gel cell battery bank, charge controls with LVD and a weatherproof enclosure. All you have to do is determine how much power you need and follow our easy Design Guide.

Contact us if you need assistance.

Field Proven

These self-contained solar systems were designed for and have been rigorously tested in extremely harsh environments to ensure reliable, trouble-free operation. From broiling deserts to freezing mountains, these systems have proven they can take the heat...and the cold.

Thousands of these independent stand-alone solar systems have been deployed over the past 15 years in locations around the world. Each component is also completely factory tested prior to shipping, so you can be assured that when your system arrives, it's ready for work.

Preferred

More engineers choose these systems because they combine all the features they need in one, safe, sealed, simple-to-install unit. That is why you'll find these systems operating in every corner of the world, in every type of climate.

Plug your project into this solar system with NEMA rated enclosure and you'll never have to worry about where your power is coming from again.

Features include:

· High efficiency solar panels with 20+ year warranty
· Heavy-duty aluminum mounting structure with stainless steel hardware
· Weatherproof NEMA 3R durable powder-coated white aluminum battery control and component enclosure, lockable
· Sealed gel cell, maintenance free, deep-cycle, non-spillable batteries, UL Recognized
· Advanced PWM Charge Control, Class I Div II rated, with low voltage load protection and temperature compensated battery charging
· Extra room for your equipment - each system package has roughly 12 cu/in of extra space in the electronics compartment. There is plenty of room for you to add your own SCADA, radio, GPS, telemetry, VSAT, Wi-Fi or other electronic equipment.

What does a Class I Div II hazardous location certified system mean to you?

It means that one of the world's top safety testing labs, CSA, has independently certified these systems as safe for use in the highest level of hazardous locations such as a potentially explosive environment where there is the possible presence of flammable gases, vapors or liquids. This system line is the first solar power system in the world to meet CSA's most rigorous Class 1 Div 2 hazardous location safety standard.

Using these systems insures - no matter what your location or application - that you can safely and reliably generate electricity to power your equipment anywhere the sun shines, even under the most hazardous conditions.

These systems are the only complete stand alone solar electric systems designed for industrial, oil gas & mining and telecom applications that can be approved for Class I, DIV. II hazardous locations (UL Pending).

Frequently Asked Questions About Remote Area Solar Power Systems

How do I select the right solar power system for my remote application?
By using the system performance charts for our RAPS™ systems. Calculate the power consumption of your equipment, find the solar zone for your site, then easily locate the system you need on our performance charts. We also have excellent design software for a detailed performance analysis of your application. Contact us if you need assistance.

Do you have complete, packaged solar power systems with everything that I need?
Yes! Our RAPS™ Pole Mount PM Series systems are designed for low to medium power applications and include everything you need for the installation, except the mounting pole or concrete pad. Our larger RAPS™ Rapid Deployment RD Series and our Ground Mount GM Series systems also include all the components you need and are designed to operate in the harshest of environments.

Do I need to supply an outdoor enclosure for my equipment?
Not usually. Our RAPS™ PM Series line of enclosures have an upper electronics compartment with plenty of room for your equipment and a convenient space for mounting. Our larger RAPS™ RD and GM systems include electronic enclosures or walk-in shelters that have plenty of room, even for your 19"-23" radio relay racks! Contact us if you need assistance.

Are the solar power systems relatively simple and fast to install?
Yes. We provide detailed installation manuals with easy to follow instructions and wiring schematics. Many of the components are pre-assembled and pre-wired allowing for rapid field deployment. Minor civil work such as mounting poles or concrete pads may be required, but our larger RAPS™ systems can mount directly to level ground. Contact us if you need assistance.

What happens during cloudy or rainy weather?
All our RAPS™ systems feature sealed, maintenance-free batteries providing plenty of reserve power for rainy or cloudy weather and night time operation.

Are there complete solar systems that are Listed for use in Class I, Div. II hazardous locations?
Yes! Our RAPS™ CIDII systems are the only complete systems rated for use in Class I, Div II Hazardous Locations, so you can operate your equipment safely with solar power. For more information, click here.

Do you have solar power systems that are transportable or rapidly deployable?
Yes! Our RAPS™ RD Series systems are available in a trailer version for the ultimate in transportability. Our container and skid mounted RAPS™ RD systems are pre-racked, pre-wired and pre-tested so the field installation is truly plug and play. For more information, click here.
