We are one the same page Redpacket. This is exactly the intension using a dual actionhydraulic 'Pull' ram and linkages plus cable operated spring loaded latches. Two MPPT SCC's . The previous vehicle owners chequerplated the whole roof so we have a robust fixing platform as a starting point.Redpacket said:Mezbatt said:Quick question here..... I'm planning a setup whereby the automation will allow only one bank (2S2P x2banks in total) of panels to tilt at a time to pick up a more efficient angle to the sun. They will tilt in opposite directions (one way or the other) via a clever method we have come up with but this will give rise to different charging currents feeding the batteries almost all of the time. IE: A lead bank and a trailing bank with reference to charging potential. Any thoughts or input on this idea please..????
Should work fine, probably should use two separate MPPT chargers for best results.
Maybe you could run this length-ways along the van with the hinge side down the centre line?
Lift drivers side row or passengers side row up from outside edge.
