Description[edit]

The Solar Panel generates power by absorbing sunlight, depending on solar intensity, up to 500W per panel on the moon. Can be manually rotated using a Wrench. Can be built in two configurations, one with opposite side split power/data ports, or two with same side combined power/data ports.

Data ports can interact with Daylight Sensors and logic i/o writers or batch writers to automatically rotate the panel to face the sun.

At the extreme altitude settings (0/100) the solar panel still faces 15 degrees above the horizon. Thus the total arc of vertical rotation is only 150 degrees from input values 0-100.

Notes[edit]

After placement be sure to install one Glass Sheet to make it functional.

See Sensors and Solar_Logic_Circuits_Guide for panel automation using logic circuits.

Data Network Properties[edit]

These are all Data Network properties of this device.

Data Parameters[edit]

These are all parameters, that can be written to with a Logic Writer, Batch Writer, or Integrated Circuit (IC10). The outputs are listed in the order a Logic Writer's "VAR" setting cycles through them.

Parameter Name Data Type Description
Horizonal Set the horizontal rotation of the Solar Panel
Vertical Sets the vertical angle of the Solar Panel
On Boolean Turns the solar panel on or off

Data Outputs[edit]

These are all parameters, that can be read with a Logic Reader or a Slot Reader. The outputs are listed in the order a Logic Reader's "VAR" setting cycles through them.

Output Name Data Type Description
Charge Returns the power generated in Watts
Horizontal Returns the horizontal rotation of the Solar Panel
Vertical Returns the vertical angle of the Solar Panel
Maximum
Ratio
On Boolean Returns the on/off state of the solar panel
