Renogy Solar Panel 2 Pack

320 Watts Each

  • Although we did not use them, we added these Renogy solar panel links as a good substitute because we were unable to find online links for our LG 410W commerical solar panels. 

  • Reliable EL tested solar modules; No hot-spot heating guaranteed; Minimizes micro-cracks PERC Solar Cells, Black frame solar panel Low power loss in cell connection Better shading tolerance

  • Durable Capable of withstanding heavy wind load up to 4000 pa corrosion-resistant aluminum frame for extended outdoor use Anti-reflective, high transparency, low iron-tempered glass with enhanced stiffness and impact resistance IP68 rated junction box provides complete protection against environmental particles and low-pressure water jets.

Victron Smart BatteryProtect 

12/24V-220A

The Smart BatteryProtect disconnects the battery from non-essential loads before it is completely discharged (which would damage the battery) or before it has insufficient power left to crank the engine.

Blue Sea Systems MaxiBus

250A BusBar with Four 5/16

  • Busbars are used to consolidate multiple wires or feed multiple circuits

    • Insert molded stainless steel studs eliminate need for securing nut and allow high torquing for excellent electrical contact

    • Raised bus provides easy access to multiple wires on a single stud

    • UL 94-V0 rated base material resists high heat

    • Recessed mounting holes eliminate accidental shorts to aluminum and steel mounting surfaces

SunPower Flex Solar Panels

110 Watts

Space is scarce on the roof of your boats so you will want to use the best in the industry.  These panels are powerful because they are the most efficient solar panels currently on the market and they are weather resistant because they are made with a thick copper foundation allowing their solar cells to be able to withstand harsh weather conditions and are almost impervious to corrosion and are constructed with top-grade, light-weight polymer materials, allowing for easy transport, installation and panel flexing up to 30 degrees.

Trumeter Amp Meter

Neg LCD w/o Outputs

A general purpose meter for measuring AC & DC current

The APM Amp Meter is a general purpose meter for measuring AC & DC current for applications including control panels and power supplies.

Benefits include:

  • Auto-detects AC or DC input

  • Measures 5A direct or up to 10,000A with a current transformer

  • 1% accuracy

Victron Direct to USB Interface

250A BusBar with Four 5/16

  • The VE.Direct to USB interface connects products with a VE.Direct connection to devices with a USB port, for example a computer. With this cable it is also possible to connect more than two VE.Direct products to a single CCGX

Victron SmartSolar MMPT 

100-Volt 30 amp 12V Solar Charge Controller

In order to make our solar charging as efficient as possible and to protect against shading, Blown Away has each of its large LG 410W solar panels independently controlled with a dedicated MMPT. 

 

These solar chargers gather energy from your solar panels, and stores it in your batteries. Using the latest, fastest technology, SmartSolar maximises this energy-harvest, driving it intelligently to achieve full charge in the shortest possible time. SmartSolar maintains battery health, extending its life.

Blue Sea Systems MaxiBus

250A BusBar with Four 5/16

  • Busbars are used to consolidate multiple wires or feed multiple circuits

    • Insert molded stainless steel studs eliminate need for securing nut and allow high torquing for excellent electrical contact

    • Raised bus provides easy access to multiple wires on a single stud

    • UL 94-V0 rated base material resists high heat

    • Recessed mounting holes eliminate accidental shorts to aluminum and steel mounting surfaces

Victron SmartShunt

500A 50m - Volt

  • The SmartShunt is an all in one battery monitor, only without a display. Your phone acts as the display. The SmartShunt connects via Bluetooth to the VictronConnect App on your phone (or tablet) and you can conveniently read out all monitored battery parameters, like state of charge, time to go, historical information and much more.

  • Alternatively the SmartShunt can be connected and be read by a GX device. Connection to the SmartShunt is made via a VE.Direct cable.

  • The SmartShunt is a good alternative for a BMV battery monitor, especially for systems where battery monitoring is needed but less wiring and clutter is wanted.
    The SmartShunt is equipped with Bluetooth, a VE.Direct port and a connection that can be used for: monitoring a second battery, midpoint monitoring or a temperature sensor.
