The Certikin outdoor domestic solar roller is designed to be economical, flexible and simple.
It offers a progression from a standard manual pool roller without the hardship of providing an electrical supply. The roller is fully self-powered through a photovoltaic panel which steadily tops up a fully contained dry-cell battery. It can be installed on new and existing outdoor domestic pools and accommodates solar blankets up to 6 metres wide and 13 metres long. The sturdy anodised aluminium telescopic roller tube allows flexibility of size, while the aluminium and PVC stands give strong impact resistant end supports.
Outdoor Domestic Solar Roller
Certikin Solex Solar Powered Roller
Operation is by a simple switch mounted on one of the end stands. The 12 volt, in-tube motor has adjustable limits to ensure that the positioning of the cover is consistently accurate and automatic. The use of an Aquablade towing system is strongly recommended for covers using the Solex roller and the roller should be mounted over the end of the pool, not set back.
A photovoltaic (PV) cell is a device that converts light energy into electrical energy by the photovoltaic effect. The PV cell consists of one or two layers of a semi conducting material, usually silicon. When light shines on the cell, it creates an electric field across the layers causing electricity to flow. The greater light intensity, the greater the electricity flow. The collection and conversion of solar energy is a completely pollution free renewable energy process.
