Victron Energy Solar Panel 115W-12V Mono series 4a BlueSolar – SPM041151200
The Victron 115W 12V Monocrystalline Solar Panel is the perfect addition to any off-grid application. They are pre-wired with MC4 connectors, making for easy installation. Their sturdy, anodized aluminium frame allows the solar panels to be easily roof-mounted with a variety of standard mounting systems. A sealed, waterproof, multi-functional junction box provides a high level of safety.
This Victron 115W solar panel is monocrystalline, which means that each solar PV cell is made of a single silicon crystal. Monocrystalline solar panels are more efficient than polycrystalline solar panels, so you will get a higher solar yield from your panels.
Victron 115W solar panel – use cases
The Victron 115W solar panels are suitable for off-grid applications such as campervans, boats and tiny houses. When used in a campervan setting, we would recommend a minimum solar array of 200W. This will ensure that you are able to generate enough solar power even in winter or cloudier days. An open circuit voltage of 15V or higher is required to charge your system, so we would recommend wiring your solar panels in series to achieve a higher total system voltage.
Solar panel mounting options
Depending on your application, the Victron 115W solar panels can be mounted in a number of ways. If you have a roof rack you can mount directly to this. Otherwise, you can use the Renogy Z brackets or the Renogy corner mounting brackets to attach your solar panels to the roof of your campervan.
Solar charge controllers
Once you’ve decided on the size of your solar array, make sure you find the correct solar charge controller! You can calculate your maximum open circuit voltage by adding together the voltages of each of your panels (if wired in series). Your maximum open circuit current will remain the same (when wired in series). Victron charge controllers are sized based on these 2 numbers – e.g. the 100/30 charge controller is suitable for an open circuit voltage up to 100V and an open circuit current up to 30A.
