Solar module takes on the desert – ANTARIS SOLAR sponsors a team at the R4 Paris–Marrakesh Rally with a mobile PV system
By installing a solar module on the roof of the car, ANTARIS SOLAR enables a rally team to power lights and communication technology with solar energy. The rally with a humanitarian background, under the patronage of UNICEF, starts on 16th February.
Mobile PV system from ANTARIS SOLAR as technical support
ANTARIS SOLAR is helping this year’s 4L Trophy with a special kind of sponsorship. The German photovoltaics supplier is providing a French rally team with a complete transportable photovoltaic (PV) system, which will be used to power and charge lighting and other technical equipment such as a laptop and mobile phone. A type AS P 230 ANTARIS SOLAR module was installed on the roof of the Renault 4 using a substructure. The hinged attachment is used to elevate the module, allowing it to be aligned with the sun. Spare tyres and other material can be stored underneath the module. A distribution box with a regulator is used to control the functions, display the battery capacity and incorporates the device connections. A leak-proof AGM battery is fitted inside the car to store the solar electricity generated.
ANTARIS SOLAR off-grid PV systems as role models
When installing the “rally-tough” PV system, robustness and ease of operation were priorities – properties which are also important for the flexibly configurable off-grid ANTARIS SOLAR photovoltaic systems.
Dr. Michael Goede, CEO of ANTARIS SOLAR, commented as follows on the sponsorship: “The ANTARIS SOLAR modules have proven very robust and heat-resistant in practice. That made them the obvious choice when equipping the rally team with our photovoltaic technology.”
