Our SPLasher device is a compact, all-in-one solar controller, flasher, and auto-dimmer for flasher beacons. The way it works is energy efficient and simple! The SPLasher uses Maximum Power point Tracking (MPPT) which extracts maximum power from the solar panel regardless of the environment.SPLasher (2-27-14)

Question: How long does the battery last?

Answer: Typically the average life span of a battery is anywhere from 3-5 years.

 

Question: If I furnish my own battery what type do I need?

Answer: You will need a 110 amp deep cycle battery. They make various types of batteries from wet cell to AGM batteries. Our recommendation would be a sealed AGM battery for maintenance reasons.

 

Question: Do you provide a battery with the system?

Answer:  Our standard system does not come with a battery but it may be purchased as an option. Please see our options tab for further information.

 

Question: What is the typical battery backup? (days to run without solar input)

Answer: Our standard systems have at least 7 days of battery backup using a 110 amp battery.

 

Question:  Does signage come with the unit?

Answer:  Our standard system does not come with a sign but it may be purchased as an option. Please see our options tab for further information.

 

Question:  How many hours per day are these systems designed to run?

Answer:  Our systems are designed to run 24 hours a day 7 seven days a week. Our standard system will work in most states but some of the more northern territories may require additional solar & batteries.

 

Question: Do I furnish my own pole or can I purchase on from your company?

Answer:  You can do whichever is most convenient for you. If you would like to use your existing pole simply let us know what type of pole you will be mounting to so we can supply the correct mounting hardware or If you would like us to provide a pole please see our optional poles under the options tab on the website.

 

Question:  What is the lead time for these systems?

Answer:  Our typical lead time is 4-6 weeks ARO.
