Solar Powered Radio Transmitter

Solar Powered Radio Transmitter An off-grid solar power system allows you to install and operate a Radio Transmitter in locations where a traditional 120VAC wired power source may be impractical, expensive or not available. Solar power systems can be the perfect solution for saving money powering radio transmitters in remote locations.

A solar powered radio ransmitter collects, processes, and transmits analog, digital, and serial sensor data on events and timed intervals. The collection, processing, and transmission of sensor data is controlled by parameters that are most often programmed using software. The sensor data can be transmitted using multiple communication paths with mixed formats and protocols.

There are many different ways a solar powered radio transmitter can be used to get data from one remote location to another.

Solar Powered Radio Transmitter System

A solar power system for a radio transmitter consists of a solar module, a solar charge controller, a rechargeable solar deep-cycle battery, power converter, regulator or inverter and a weather-proof outdoor enclosure. This system is used to collect solar energy and the store electrical power, and then convert the stored power into the correct voltage to operate the radio transmitter.

What Size Solar Power System For A Radio Transmitter?

Solar Pump System To select the correct size solar power system to power a radio transmitter there are a few things that must be known.

1. What is operating voltage and power consumption in amps, or watts of the radio transmitter?

2. How many hours each day will the radio transmitter be required to operate.

3. What is the geographical location the solar powered radio transmitter will be installed.

4. How many days of battery reserve power are desired for "no sun" days?
