Solar-powered wireless device
February 2, 2010 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
The FlexPower solar supply, BWA-SOLAR-001, by Banner Engineering Corp. is specifically designed for powering the vendor’s SureCross Wireless Network devices—offering an integrated charge controller, rechargeable battery pack, AC wall charger and mounting hardware.
The battery pack recharges in direct sunlight and continues to power the SureCross devices autonomously when sunlight is not available. The solar supply is well-suited for applications where wired power is not available or that require more power than a single-cell DX81 battery supply can provide. The FlexPower solar supply can be used in addition to the DX81P6 six-pack battery supply as a backup power source. If the solar panel is damaged, the DX81P6 battery supply will provide backup power for a few weeks or longer depending on the load.
