Su-kam has introduced one more innovative gadget in its solar product series.
“SolarCon” – The name itself tells the application of this product. Yes, it is a solar conversion kit for normal home inverters with single or double battery.
Targeting the home inverter market in India, Sukam has introduced this solar conversion kit with most advanced functions compared to other potential competitors.
What is Solar conversion Kit?
Solar conversion kit is an additional device which could be connected to your existing home inverter to convert it to hybrid solar inverter.
By converting your normal inverter to solar hybrid inverter, you can connect solar panels to it and start using the solar energy available in the day time for your normal home use.
Your electricity bill will come down in few months.
With solar hybrid inverter, you could handle severe Power cuts in summer. You could handle long power cuts like 12 hours to 15 hours per day easily.
But you should install correct ratio of solar panels according to your daily usage pattern.
Installing a single 80 watts panel with 800 va inverter and using all your fans, tubes and TV’s won’t help you get the benefit of solar energy.
Install 250 watts panels with 800 or 600 va inverter and minimum 135 ah battery.
Why SolarCon ?
More than 4 million inverters were sold every year in India, this is something huge and we should notice that all these inverters are normal grid powered inverters. We cannot connect solar panels directly to these inverters.
There are many Chinese make solar charge controllers are available to convert this normal inverters in to solar inverters, but their functionality is minimal and not innovative, there are some serious issues with these unbranded solar converters.
Warranty and service is also a big nightmare with Chinese unbranded solar converters and charge controllers.
Sukam has now come up with a branded solution to this problem. Sukam ‘Solarcon’ is built with unique features and comes with sukam warranty. Sukam has a very wide service network throughout the country.
It is not just an imitation of any other model available in Europe , America or china. Sukam has patents for the design and technology used in ‘SolarCon’ solar conversion kit.
Let us compare the price of other brand Automatic solar hybrid charge controller with Su-Kam ‘SolarCon’ automatic hybrid solar charge controller and conversion kit
Other Brand PWM Solar conversion Kit Price = Rs.2500 (12v 16 to 20 amp) (no panels included)
Su-Kam Solacon’ Solar conversion kit Price = Rs.3000 to 3500/- (12 v 16 amp) (no panels included)
Price difference between non-branded conversion kit and Sukam conversion kit is minimal, go branded!
Maximum solar panel capacity
With sukam ‘Solarcon’ PWM 12v 16 amp Solar conversion kit, we can connect up to 260 watts of solar PV modules.
250 watts recommended
If you want to install high capacity solar panels like 400, 500 or above 500, better you go for SolarCon 24 v (double battery inverter kit)
SolarCon solar hybrid conversion kit is available up to 48v 40 amp (4 battery system), in which solar PV modules up to 3000 watts could be connected. But it is expensive.
Sukam ‘SolarCon’ solar conversion kit is available in both PWM and MPPT technology
PWM – Pulse width modulation charging technology
MPPT – Maximum power point tracking technology
PWM is widely used and affordable technology which is inexpensive and suitable for middle class people.
MPPT is a choice of people who need more rigid configuration and who want to get most out of the available solar energy. Little expensive too.
Special features of Sukam solarCon – Solar conversion charge controller
