Solar Home System SHS 200




The SHS 200 is standard Solar Home System designed to provide electricity to individual households and small public utilities. The SHS 200 packages are available as a complete system ready for installation and direct use.

The SHS 200 is offered with an energy efficient lighting set comprising 3 lamps including fittings. This lighting set is in compliance with the most stringent efficiency, lifetime and radio interference requirements in the market.

Under typical weather conditions the available electricity per day will be up to 200 Watt-hours.

System configuration:

In order to offer the market a reliable and long lasting Solar Home System, we only apply components that have been well tested and proven in tropical conditions.

The SHS 200 package contains all necessary components and mounting materials ready for easy installation of the complete Solar Home System. The main components are: a solar module with support, which converts daylight into electricity, a lighting set of 3 lamps with

fittings and preassembled cable and an electricity Storage and Distribution Unit (SDU) including a battery.

The SDU is equipped with an electronic energy management system, which regulates and protects the battery and all connected appliances. For installation a cable set, a mounting set and a manual are also included.





The SHS 200 has been designed for simple and easy operation. The solar module, once positioned correctly, converts the daylight directly into electricity. This electricity is automatically stored in a battery through the SDU. The amount of electricity available in the battery is shown by a level indicator on the SDU.

SHS 200 features:

The SHS 200 is typically developed for domestic application at remote sites in rural areas, which are not covered with a conventional electricity distribution network. It operates fully automatically and guarantees an optimal system performance with a maximum life span.

The only maintenance is a regular check and the topping up of the battery. In very dusty areas half-yearly cleaning of the solar modules is recommended. The system components applied are of high quality and are appropriate for use under typical rural conditions.

To increase the system reliability, we offer a Storage and Distribution Unit (SDU) concept where the battery and battery housing, electronic energy management system and connections for the appliances are fully integrated.
