5w Flexi Solar Panel Roof and Deck Top Kit

This 5w PV Logic solar panel roof and deck top kit enables the solar panel to be professionally fitted to the roof of a caravan, motorhome, yacht or narrow boat. Benefitting from a five year product warranty, the 5w flexi solar panel is the ideal choice to provide a continuous trickle feed maintaining and extending the life of any 12-volt battery and delivers up to 32.5wh per day. Fitted with a blocking diode to prevent reverse current drain, the 5w panel is supplied with a cable feed gland, bonding agent, a 4m cable, connectors, fuse and detailed installation instructions. NOTE – The 5W panel kit does not require a charge controller if the battery to be used is larger than 35Ah. ... View more

Product information

Overview

PV Logic Flexi solar panels are the ultimate choice for flat or slightly curved surfaces.

Benefit from the semi-flexible panel's 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 semi-flexible range can even be walked on with soft deck shoes! 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.

Completely waterproof

Each panel is assembled to ensure complete encapsulation. This ensures the six 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 above PV Logic flexi panels have up to two shading diodes housed within the fully waterproof junction box to prevent this occurrence.

Superior design

There are no square edges on a PV Logic flexi solar panel! 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.

Underside cable exit (100w and 150w panels only)

The cable of the 100w and 150w flexi panels exits the panel from the underside allowing for a completely flush fit to your roof or decking. A remote shading diode box is ensures consistent performance even in partially shady conditions. The 100w and 150w panels are available with a white back sheet or all black.

Easy fix

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.

Installation method

Please only use the glue pattern below (this is covered in more detail in the instructions), which ensures air flow under the panel is achieved preventing heat build-up and potential warping under extreme heat.

Take control

The PV Logic flexi roof and deck top kits 20w and above include the 10A charge controller. For for high performance PWM technology and the ultimate in rapid solar charging, you can upgrade to the all new MPPT Pro. Both are capable of charging 12V and 24V single or dual batteries.

The MPPT Pro charge controller increases solar yield by up to 20% over a standard charge controller by artificially modifying the voltage from s solar panel system to actively match any battery's requirements. This means that whatever the weather conditions your panels will deliver maximum power with minimum electrical loss.

The MPPT charge controller comes with its very own free-to-download Bluetooth app (Apple and Android) to display how the solar system is performing. The app software links your smartphone to the MPPT Pro and shows performance figures for a single or dual battery/batteries - very useful in a motorhome where the system can intelligently charge the leisure and starter batteries.

An optional activity monitor is also available to provide all performance data on a LCD display.

All of our semi flexible panels will only bend from the top (location of cable and logos) to the bottom a maximum of 10% of panel length.
Bending the panel greater than this, or trying to bend the panel from left to right, will possibly damage the panel and also invalidate your warranty.
