This Photonic Universe 820W 24V Complete Off-grid Solar Power System is the perfect ready-to-use kit for off-grid applications requiring a reliable and constant source of power for household appliances or industrial equipment in areas without access to or without stable mains electricity. This kit can provide power to small/medium household or office appliances such as LED lighting, TV, radio, computer, printer or a fridge. This may vary significantly according to the location and season.

This complete off-grid kit has been expertly designed to maximise efficiency and output and therefore comes equipped with some of our most premium quality products; including two monocrystalline solar panels and a state-of-the-art Iconica hybrid power inverter - an intelligent combination of a high efficiency MPPT solar charge controller, pure sine wave inverter and smart mains battery charger in one single unit.

Kit includes:

  • 2 x 410W monocrystalline Sharp solar panels, each with 2 x 1.25m solar cable and MC4 connectors
  • Iconica Hybrid 3000W 24V pure sine wave inverter
  • 2 x 100AH 12V AGM deep cycle Photonic Universe leisure batteries
  • 120A circuit breaker or fuse
  • A pair of 5m 4mm2 solar extension cables with MC4 connectors
  • A pair of 1m 35mm2 tinned copper battery cables
  • Battery linking cable
  • Loose ring terminals
     

2 x 410W Sharp Solar panels:

The two high quality 410W solar panels, from leading solar panel manufacturer Sharp which has over 60 years of experience with solar technology, feature the unique PERC technology with 10 busbars to extract more power from a smaller surface area, increasing the output of each panel without increasing the size. The Half-cut cell construction of the panels decreases internal losses, reduces risk of hotspots and improves performance in shaded conditions. Their robust design is IP68 (waterproof) rated, and tested for resistance against PID, salt mist, ammonia, heavy snow, dust and sand. This thorough testing ensures a long service life even in harsh marine or wilderness conditions. A pair of male / female MC4 connectors are crimped on the end of the cable for easy waterproof connection.
 

3000W 24V Iconica Hybrid Inverter:

This inverter intelligently combines the functions of a 3000W pure sine wave inverter, 40A MPPT solar charge controller and a 25A smart battery charger in one single unit:

1. 3000W 24V Pure sine wave inverter: Converts DC current from the solar panels into 230V AC mains electricity, to run various household appliances such as a TV, laptop, lighting, fans etc. Able to generate 3000VA of continuous power with a strong peak power handling capability of up to 6000VA (to start appliances with electric motors). This inverter is a pure sine wave type, which easily surpasses modified sine wave inverters in terms of efficiency and compatibility with a wider range of appliances.

2. Inbuilt 40A MPPT solar charge controller: The high efficiency MPPT controller regulates the input from the solar panels to the batteries or to load, with a full range of safety functions including protection against overcharge, overheating, reverse current etc. The controller operates at up to 98% efficiency to extract the maximum possible power from the solar array.

3. Enhanced 25A Smart battery charger: Designed to enable safe and efficient unattended charging of a battery from a mains power source or generator, with full overcharge protection and multiple charging stages.

Additional features: This model also features an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS), and can accept input from the solar panels, mains power/ a generator and the batteries - either from a single or combination of input sources.

The inverter is supplied with a PC connection cable and PC software CD for convenient viewing of important system information, and can also be connected to a mobile Wi-Fi monitoring module or Wi-Fi connection kit (purchased separately) to unlock access to email status updates for the inverter, remote system monitoring from any location and much more.
 

2 x Photonic Universe AGM Batteries:

Our AGM deep-cycle batteries are non-spillable, completely sealed and maintenance free - amongst the very safest batteries you can find. They have a much longer service life compared to standard wet-cell batteries due to lower degradation and corrosion inside the battery. AGM batteries hold charge very well and have a low self-discharge rate.

Additional items:

This kit also includes 1m positive and 1m negative 35mm2 tinned copper battery cables with loose ring terminals for connecting the inverter to the batteries, a 120A fuse or circuit breaker for use between the hybrid inverter and the batteries, 5m solar extension cable with MC4 connectors to connect to the existing 1m of solar cable fitted to the solar panels and battery linking cable to connect the batteries together.
