Light-weight panels with textile cover made of high-quality tarpaulins. TX modules have been specially developed for mounting on Bimi or Sprayhood. These areas provide sufficient space for powerful solar modules. Finally enough power for the fridge, tablet, sat nav and autopilot.
Quick release fasteners LOXX tops are used in the binding band. The package also includes a watertight plug-in connection (cable plug and socket), LOXX sockets and a 10m connection cable for a particularly simple and fast assembly.
If the panel is no longer needed, it can be quickly removed - Loosen the coupling on the cable, open the LOXX, fold the panel and store it. Thanks to the compact dimensions there is always a place.
The panels consist of one or more wings. In the case of multi-wing panels, these are firmly connected by textile joints. The cable between the panels runs along the joints, tensile forces and kinking loads can not affect the cable at all. The compact dimensions of the panels enables an easy transportation and the folded panel will find space in almost every storage space on board. Even carrying a 200Wp panel - the TX-42052 - in the aircraft is now possible.
Each wing of a multi-wing panel works independently! This special interconnection technology used by SunWare ensures that when one element is shadowed, the other wings continue to produce full power.
The multicrystallinehigh-performance solar cellsare protected in an EVA laminate and ETFE coatings against weathering. Even in diffused light conditions or even in winter, the modules produce a high charging current.
Assembly The panels are fastened to the Bimini with the LOXX fasteners. Cut holes for the LOXX elements in the Bimini with the enclosed punch, screw the LOXX into the Bimini with the enclosed sealing washers and clip on the panels. To remove the panels, raise the head of the LOXX element and release it from the lower part.
On the module is 1m cable, to this the attached cable plug is mounted. To the 10m long cable, the cable socket and the cap is mounted. Along the Biminipipes, the cable is led to the deck and fixed with the enclosed UV-resistant cable ties. On deck, the cable is routed through a deck passage way to the inside and then to the charge controller. Alternatively, a pluggable waterproof deck bushing can be mounted on deck.
If the panels are removed from the Bimini, the connector on top of the Bimini can be loosened. With the cap, the cable socket is watertight sealed and can remain on the Bimini.
Serial connection of 12V TX panels only permitted if a cell protector is used per module.
I have two Cristec inverter/charger (one of 60A, one of 20A) on my Oceanis 45. what other hardware will I need to connect a TX module of 12A to my system, other than what you supply with the panels? do I simply connect to the Cristec?
On the website of Cristec I can't figure out if the charge has also a special input for a solar panel, I think not. Additionally to the package of TX-panel you need a charge regulator e.g. FOX-360 and a decks passage like: https://en.sunware.solar/produkte/artikel_detail/30104050
Can the modules remain permanently installed?
TX modules are fitted with a high-quality tarpaulin. The substance has similar aging properties as bimini and sprayhood. Should the fabric be attacked after many years, a new textile frame can be sewn to the module at our company.
The TX panels are clipped onto textile surfaces with LOXX / Tenax quick-release fasteners.
