Re: Towed Generator that We Really Need

I have two of these panels I plan on installing to a dodger I'm going to make and try to fit them as best I can... sew them onto the dodger...

Here are the specs:

Electrical Specifications

PVL-128 18ft x 15˝ in.x 0.16 in. 17 lb.
Electrical Specification: PVL-128
Rated Power Pmax 128 Watts
Nominal Operating Voltage 24 Volts
Operating Voltage (Volts)Vmp 33.0 Volts
Operating Current (Amps) Imp 3.88 Amps
Open-Circuit Voltage (Volts) Voc 47.6 Volts
Short-Circuit Current (Amps) Isc 4.8 Amps
Series Fuse Rating (Amps) 8 Amps
Min. Blocking Diode 8 Amps

That's 256 watts total for both panels... not bad.... they are a little long and have to figure how to attach to the dodger but I'm sure I'll work it out...

These can be bought on Fleabay and they cost about $1 a watt or slightly higher... what is good about them is the flexibility and long wear since it must meet the current building codes... they are really tough and I have walked on them and so has my science kids when I used them for demonstration... very sturdy!
