Ridgetec Solar Power Pack
Available on backorder
The Ridgetec Solar Power Pack is all your camera needs to provide year round, 12v amperage to the camera. Get the most out of your investment by providing continuous power to your camera eliminating the need to visit the camera.
Included in this kit is the battery box with solar controller, a 10 watt solar panel, and a steel mounting bracket. The kit also includes all cabling needed to connect the system to a camera up to 6 feet (2m) away.
The system uses an ip67, waterproof, durable, lockable enclosure to warehouse a solar charge controller capable of handling up to 10 amps, and a sealed lead acid battery. The battery is not included as part of the kit. All wiring is provided within the box for a complete turnkey system, capable of providing continuous 12v power to the Lookout cameras. The solar charge controller provides battery overcharge protection, night time discharge protection as well as battery protection from over discharge which promotes optimal life for your sealed lead acid battery.
Note: When the battery voltage drops below 10.7V, the controller will cut power to the camera, and provided there are AA batteries installed (preferably non-alkaline), the camera will switch automatically to the internal AA batteries, while the sun charges the SLA battery back up to 12V. Once the sealed lead acid battery reaches 12V the controller will reconnect the power to the camera’s external port.
The sealed lead acid battery required for use with this kit should be 12 volts and have the following dimensions: (approximately)
- Length: 5.94 in
- Width: 2.56 in
- Height: 3.86 in
Generally the batteries in this category run from 7 amp hour to 9 or 10 amp hour. This a common industry standard size, available online and locally through some battery outlet stores.
