The schemes of the solar panel, load connection and measurement means are depicted on the control unit front panel.
The following equipment is also located on the front panel:
- mains switch;
- functional switches;
- lighters with halogen lamps (4 pcs.);
- digital indicators.
The solar modules are movable frames made of steel section. Each unit has two solar panels mounted on it. The angulation of the panels could be adjusted from 0 to 90 degrees at fixed 5 degree intervals. The temperature of each panel is controlled by a digital thermometer.
The lighthead is a movable frame made of steel section with 8 (2 groups of 4 pieces) halogen lamps, each 0.5 W power. Each group has it’s own power switch.
