Solar Power Systems
LI-COR solar power supplies are robust power sources developed to our specifications by SunWize® Technologies. Each system conforms to rigorous standards to ensure it will provide reliable power to your instruments in remote field deployments.
Complete systems are delivered ready for deployment
Designed to provide 4 dark-days of operation with LI-COR eddy covariance systems
High wattage output to provide continuous power and prevent data loss
24-volt systems to distribute power with greater efficiency than 12-volt systems
UL and CE certified, demonstrating safety and performance compliance
Which solar power system is right for you?
Systems are available in 25, 40, 50, and 65 watt in configurations for locations with 1.5 or more sun hours. Contact a sales representative to determine which system is best for your instrument setup and location.
Each system includes:
Solar Panel Array
Power Distribution Box
Solar Panel Power Cables
Solar Panel Mounting Hardware
Power Distribution Box
The 7900-231 Regulated Power Distribution Box is ideal for any LI-COR 24-volt solar power supply. It connects directly to the power supply and provides six unregulated outputs with power output equal to power supplied and two regulated 12-volt outputs.
The 7900-230 Power Distribution Box is ideal for a 12-volt power supply. It connects directly to the solar power supply and provides 11 connections for powered sensors, with the power output equal to the power supplied.
Power distribution boxes and cables are available separately or in combination with LI-COR solar power supplies. A 20-meter cable in aluminum conduit is used to carry power from the solar power supply to the box. A 40-meter extension cable without conduit is used for tower installations.
Biomet Backup Battery System
A recommended 12V backup battery system enables the biomet system to continue operating for 2 to 3 days if the primary power supply fails.
