GTO / Linear Pro FM123 Solar Panel 10Watt 600mA with all Mounting Equipment
If your gate system is located far from an AC power outlet (or greater than 1,000 feet) you can choose to charge your GTO / Linear Pro gate opener system with these high output solar panels. Mounting hardware included.
• (4) M8 Nuts
• (4) M8 Bolts
• (2) Wire Nuts
IMPORTANT INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
• Place the panel facing due south in the path of the sun.
• The solar panel must be placed in an open area away from shade.*
• The solar panel should receive at least 8 hours of direct sunlight for a full charge.
• Mount the panel using the curved pipe provided to maintain the proper angle to the sun.
*If the solar panel must be placed more than 10 ft. from the control box in order to receive direct sunlight, you can use up to 250 ft. of multi-stranded, 16 gauge, direct burial, low-voltage wire [RB509]. NEVER use telephone wire or solid core wire.
*For optimal efficiency, wipe the face of the panel frequently with a soft, damp cloth. The output of the Solar Panel is variable during the day depending on the intensity of the sun and the angle of the rays striking the panel. The output may vary from a few millivolts to as much as 22 volts. To check the output, simply disconnect the solar panel leads from the control board and connect them directly to a dc voltmeter. In bright sunlight, the 10 watt panel output should read at least 18 volts dc at approximately 600mA.
NEVER USE THE SOLAR PANEL AND THE AC TRANSFORMER AT THE SAME TIME! It will damage the control board.
*Accessories will draw additional power from the battery; the more accessories you connect, the more power your system will require. If you have a gate opener that will accommodate an additional battery (see gate opener Installation Manual for specifications), we recommend that you purchase an extra 12V, 7 amp hour battery [RB500].
*An operational cycle is one full opening and closing of the gate. Number of openings per day will depend on the length, weight, hardware and environmental conditions.**The PRO-SL2000B will require a 24 amp hour battery and a minimum of 10 watts.
