Leisure Technical Services – Dromore

Caravaning Posted on Sun, August 08, 2010 17:50:47

Simon at Leisure Technical Services in Dromore is renowned for the quality of his workmanship and commitment to his customers. His motorhome installations, service parts and repair business is flourishing and recommendations come from near and far.

When sourcing a battery suitable for motorhomes (which tends to have a higher requirement than caravans as people are not always plugged in to a supply point) Simon was looking for a product with the highest quality and reliability – which lead him to Elecsol. Fitted as standard to the Autotrail motorhome rnage, the Elecsol Battery is reliable and compact.

LPC Caravan and Camping – Bangor now selling Elecsol

Caravaning Posted on Sun, August 08, 2010 17:32:13

LPC Caravan and Camping are the latest to join the Elecsol team. Situated off ballo Bay in Bangor Co. Down, LPC sell new and used caravans, camping equipment and accessories such as electric movers, LED lighting, lightweight awnings and more.

The Elecsol Batttery provides a higher storage capacity with less weight and more importantly – smaller external dimensions than many competitors. With many motorhome and caravan battery compartments already tightly packed, the extra space given by an Elecsol battery means that additional wiring such as that required for an electric mover can be neatly coiled above the battery. Or use the extra space and fit a larger battery – with Elecsol you have the power when you need it.

An added benefit is that the Elecsol Leisure battery is dual purpose and can be used in the marine environment for both house and engine start battery.

Elecsol Leisure Batteries are capable of 1000 cycles (most lead acid alternatives will do 300) and backed up by a full 5 years warranty.

Off Grid Ireland

Off-grid Ireland Posted on Wed, July 21, 2010 23:04:49

After a lot of searching and investigation (which included going down several garden paths) we’ve decided upon a CHP system using known technologies. Not because renewables don’t work – to the contrary, they do work – and work very well if the system is designed and installed correctly. No, in our case it was the imminent arrival of the newest member of the family that focused the final decision. Of course, since it’s known controllable technology there’s not as much risk but what a system like this does provide is the freedom to start your renewable journey.

So what’s in our off grid system?

Genset – Lister Petter LPW3 powered 3 cyclinder diesel genset with sound attenuated canopy and residential silencer. The set is controlled by a system from Deep Sea Controls allowing remote start and infinte monitoring possibilities. 8.6Kw with the ability to run 10% overload for 1 hour in every 12.

Charger/ Inverter combi units – Victron Multiplus 3KVA/ 2.5Kw units – 24 volt models proving 70A charging per unit. These units can be paralleled to increase inverter and charger output and you can also create 3 phase if required, perfect for farm applications or remote workshops. The ability to log in via laptop or pc to reconfigure the majority of the settings means each system can be individuall set up dependant on other components, power supply etc.

Deep cycle Batteries – Elecsol AGM Solar and Marine Series, 8 X 250A units wired in series/ parallel to provide 24 volts and 1000ah. Capable of more than 6000 cycles when discharging to only 15% DOD or 1500 cycles when going to 80%.

Various other ancilliares such as A rated water pumps, Bowman exhaust gas heat exchanger and Victron BMV 602 battery monitor completed the package.

The system works extremely well saving money by providing all of our electricity and the majority of our heating requirements all year round. But how does it help us become greener??
