Solar Powered Gates
We offer a wide range of solar gate systems for above ground and underground use. All these systems can be battery powered, and the battery charged via a solar panel.
Why Solar Power?
A solar powered gate opener is completely self-sufficient and can work miles away from the nearest mains power. If your mains power is above 75 metres away there is a significant saving compared to the ground work and the cost of armoured cable.
Which Solar Panel?
Solar panel technology has advanced over the years and the latest mono crystalline panels are capable of producing electricity with full cloud cover. Some people refer to these as moon light panels. Choosing the right panel is important, our panels have built in diodes to stop them discharging the battery at night.
What else do I need?
A quality leisure battery is recommended, because they withstand being charged and discharged better. We supply a tried and tested marine battery 75Ah for 12V or 2 x 26AH for 24V. The battery is protected by a voltage regulator
Tip - We would highly recommend the 24V Roger Technology Brushless, the brushess motors use approx. half the power of brushed low voltage motors. This is why the latest cordless tools are brushless.
