With the 116Wp Carbon model, SUNBEAMsystem introduces an extremely durable and lightweight solar panel for use on a canvas surface.
The Tough+ Carbon 116W is a highly advanced panel, capable of transforming your sprayhood and bimini into efficient solar power generators. Mounting a large solar panel on a canvas surface has always been a challenge, mostly because of the lack of structural support will increase the risk of early panel failure. The Tough+ Carbon 116W Quick Fix is equipped with Sunpower solar cells with an efficiency of no less than 23.7%. This gives the panels an extremely high surface vs. yield ratio.
By reinforcing the panel with carbon fiber, the Carbon model achieves the perfect strength to weight ratio needed to tackle this problem. It makes the panel not only stiff enough to support itself, but also light enough to protect the underlying canvas from damages. The soft transparent edges do not only protect the fabric from wear, but also provide a smooth color transition from any colored top to the uniform black panel surface.
The Quick Fix system allows for quick and easy mounting, using stainless steel LOXX buttons and waterproof MC4 connectors.
For use of the Carbon model in heavy wind or on fast-moving vessels, we recommend the Carbon Velcro Batten. These will even out the forces on the underlying canvas using velcro strips.
