IEC Solar Energy Demo Panel Lamp Capacitor BuzzerOrder code: EM3730-001
A large solar panel producing 50 to 100mA at 3, 6 or 9 volts connects to an Australian made module with a simulated storage battery (a capacitor) and two switched loads comprised of a buzzer or a lamp which can be run by the solar cell, (with or without the storage cell in circuit) or by the storage cell. Operates best in sunlight but will operate from a 100W lamp - don't get it too close to the hot lamp as it will melt. For cloudy days batteries can be fitted to the demonstrator module to simulate solar power.
