Utilizing Solar Panels

Have you ever considered setting up a solar system for your home or business. There are a number of benefits to utilizing solar panels, as they can provide a quick return on your investment. Most people see a huge difference in their monthly utility bills, and this is enough to pay off their investment in a few years.

Homeowners and Buyers

There are many aspects that need to be considered when shopping for the right type of panels. This environmentally friendly source of energy comes in a variety of options. It is quickly gaining popularity among homeowners, and it is an investment that can increase their home’s value. Many people look for homes that have solar panels already installed, as this is an investment that some buyers know they want to make up front.

Collecting Sunlight

Panels are used to collect energy from the suns rays. It then converts it into power that can be used by your applications. However, there are many parts of a solar system that you need to know and understand before you make this investment. solar panels

The energy that is collected and generated by your panels is Direct Currents, and in order for you to use this energy with your applications, it needs to be converted into Alternating Currents. Therefore, you will need to have an inverter to ensure you can efficiently use the energy that your panels collect.

The best thing about using solar energy is that you will never run out of it. This type of energy can be collected and stored. Some people even sell their excess energy to their local utility company. Power outages will not be a worry, as your system will still run efficiently because it is powered by the sun. That is why this system is ideal for those who experience frequent power outages.

Setting Up Your System

Many people choose to set up their own solar systems because they are not hard. There are tons of information available that can help you get everything up and running in no time. If you are looking for resources on how to set up your own solar system, YouTube is a great place to start. They will show you step by step how to get your solar energy up and running.

This power can be used to run your whole house or just a few applications. You have a lot of options when it comes to installing an alternative energy source. Mounting can be done on your rooftop or on the ground. There are some panels that are portable, which means you can take them with you when camping or hitting the open road with your RV. The amount of power you will need will depend on the number of applications you plan to run on your system.

Upgrading is not hard, as it is a matter of adding more panels to your system. That is why so many people choose to set up a system and then add on as they can. Many different manufactures offer solar panels and there are a variety of types. They can be used on grid, off grid, or on the go.

Battery Management System

The Time Tracker is a sophisticated battery management system that monitors your battery through the interactive LCD screen. The screen displays things like battery current condition, battery capacity remaining, charge time remaining, current charging cycle, battery type, battery size selection. The new ArkPak will fit up to a group size 31 battery(approx. 130Ah) Batteries are not included with the device for shipping reasons most likely. But hey I like that because then I get a good price on the unit itself and I can choose what kind of battery I want to put into it. BatteryPete recommends using an AGM/Gel/ or Lithium type of battery. They are more expensive than a traditional lead acid battery but you get what you pay more with anything in life. Batteries are no exception! Nor can a traditional lead acid battery be shipped via common carrier because they are not a totally sealed battery.(They can leak, and they out gas with charging and discharging) Because of the type of device we are referencing here and the usage options that are available to the end user. We want you to get the most out of this device. Learn more about AGM batteries here. BatteryPete even offers some of the best in lithium battery technology from brands like CTC and Super B. The new ArkPak comes with a new Integrated 7 Step Smart Charger as well. The 7 stage smart charger monitors your battery through the following cycles to optimize performance:

Stage 1: Charge – Commences recovery of your battery back to peak voltage. Then charges the battery at 6 amps up to a set voltage, at which point the battery is approximately 90% charged.

Stage 2: Testing – Checks the battery capacity and predicts the hours left until fully charged.

Stage 3: Bulk – The period just before boost when the volts are constant.

Stage 4: Boost – Peak charge for maximum performance. Battery is charged for 4 hours at constant voltage.

Stage 5: Resting – Allows the battery to consolidate after boost. The ArkPak ceases charging and allows the battery to rest while allowing voltage to drop to 13.2V.

Stage 6: Float – This maintains performance and prolongs battery life – as your battery is continually monitored and the voltage is maintained at 13.2V by automatically adjusting charge current for 500 hours.

Stage 7: Condition – This exercises the battery and avoids sulfide build-up. After 500 hours of conditioning the charger automatically returns to charge cycle.

Recharging Options:

  • AC Input 110VAC
  • DC Input via your Vehicle (While running/driving your car, truck or Rv will charge using its internal charging system via the alternator)
  • Anderson Plug / Socket (Ac Input)
  • Solar (DC or AC) (Will depend on how your system is set up or where you place the ArkPak in the mix)

Here is a little chart from Ark that gives a idea of the power in this super cool package. Some basic numbers to charge any specific device with a traditional re-charger. Then any device you might want to power or charge comparing the ArkPak 730. Simply Incredible!  Buy Now!
