PS120A, PS180A Intended use 4 Intended use The portable solar panel is a mobile power supply with a solar controller attached to the back for charging a 12 Vg battery and connecting a 12 Vg device. 5 Technical description The portable solar panel is designed as monocrystalline construction with tempered glass coating. The integrated solar controller attached to the back enables a DC consumer unit (e.g. a cooler) or inverter to be simultaneously supplied with power while the 12 Vg battery is being charged. The solar controller has the following protective functions: • Incorrect polarity protection • Battery overvoltage protection • Battery undervoltage protection • Battery open circuit protection • Battery over-charge and over-discharge protection • Output overcurrent protection • Short circuit protections for output and solar panel • Temperature compensation function

Using the appliance PS120A, PS180A Connecting to a battery ➤ Connect the Alligator clips to the battery terminals. Connect the red lead with red clamp to the positive (+) battery terminal. Connect the black lead with black clamp to the negative (–) battery terminal. Ensure that the connection is secure and tight. ➤ Connect the Anderson plug to the Anderson socket. ✓ The battery is loading. ✓ The green LEDs on the solar controller light up. The number of green LEDs show the battery capacity. The LEDs light in cycle dur ing charging status. The LEDs stop shinning and light on when the battery is fully charged. In over-discharge status, LED 1 (25%) flashes quickly to warn the user to charge the battery immediately. For safety reasons the solar controller will start buzzing if the battery connection is in reverse polarity to protect against reversing the polarity and short circuits when con necting to a battery. To protect the battery, the solar controller switches off automatically if the voltage is insufficient (see table below). 12 V Switch-off voltage 11 ± 0.3 Vg Switch-on voltage 12 ± 0.3 Vg Connecting a 12 Vg device or inverter ➤ Connect the lead to the positive (+) and negative (–) terminal. Ensure that the connection is secure and tight. Connecting the temperature sensor The battery temperature sensor allows the charge controller to continuously adjust charge voltage based on measured battery temperature. ➤ Attach temperature sensor to the battery with tape, ensuring good contact. Disconnecting the solar panel ➤ Disconnect the load first, then disconnect the Anderson plug from the solar panel, finally disconnect the Alligator clips from the battery.
