[MUSIC PLAYING] Ideal for use in multiple applications such as boats and RVs, the Grape Solar GS400 Kit operates a wide variety of AC and DC powered devices, including pumps, LED lights, computers, and other small electronics. The kit is also suitable for small cabins and emergency backup systems. This kit has been designed to include everything you need to charge a 12-volt battery bank so you can get up and running as quickly as possible. Let's take a look at the components that make up the kit. This kit is exceptionally easy to assemble and use. First, the heart of the system is the Grape Solar 100-watt crystalline panel. The panel is designed with industry standard MC4 connectors used for their durability and weather resistance. The back of the panel has mounting tools which allow you to mount the panel in various ways. Using the included MC4 cables, you connect the Grape Solar panel to the Xantrex C35 charge controller. The cables include an MC4 connector on one end and a bare wire on the other end, which connects to the charge controller's terminal block. The Xantrex C35 charge controller is a PWM-style charge controller that is large enough for you to expand your system for a total of five solar panels. With a multicolored LED status light, three-stage control, temperature compensation, and manual or automatic equalization, this durable charge controller will maximize your system performance and increase battery life. The Xantrex Prowatt SW2000 features pure sinewave output, which is perfect for sensitive and heavy-duty loads, including refrigerators, freezers, small microwave ovens, and lighting. Extension cables from the panel to the Xantrex C35 charge controller and 12-volt batteries can be purchased separately, if you don't have already have them.
