The Contractor Solar Generator was originally designed for contractors that needed portability and power. They needed a system that could handle the cycling on and off an air compressor while operating saws and drills. Like the Spartan 300 it has a 5000 watt Inverter but only (2) 100 AH batteries. The Contractor weighs 80 pounds less than the Spartan 300 and a smaller foot print.
(2) 100 AH Batteries. It will run a medium sized refrigerator up to 37 hours.
Also comes with:
Internal 5,000 Watt Inverter
(10,000 Watt Surge)
Internal Solar Charge Controller (Charges system in approximately 6 to 8 hours depending on the amount of sum)
(Can handle 140V and up to 40A of solar input)
110V AC Charger (This system comes with a 2 bank charger which will charge three batteries in the same time most charges charge a single 100 AH battery. Charges system in 8 hours)
Electric Fan All of our systems were designed to be portable so they can be used outside for camping, hunting and other similar activities. Since the inverter can produce some heat we install a fan that automatically turns on when the system is in use. This allows the generator to be used with the lid closed without the threat of overheating.
1-Anderson Connector Port for Solar Cable
1-12 Volt Accessory Outlet
(1) 50” Cable (Anderson Connector on one end and standard MC4 Connectors on the other.
(a) The Deltron Connector allows the system to be connected to our Piggy Back generator which contains (2) 100 AH batteries providing you with a total of 500 AH of power.
(b) An additional connecting cable can be purchased that will allow the system to be connected to an external Inverter. This allows you to use a 220V inverter or a pure sine wave inverter in addition to the internal modified inverter.
When shopping for a portable solar generator or designing a permanent home system, it is essential to make a realistic assessment of your energy needs and the capability of your system. Every appliance in your home has a rating that is given in either Watts or Amperes (A). This number is expressed as an hourly rate of usage while the appliance is under load. To make sure that you are comparing apples to apples, all ratings expressed as Amperes should be converted to Watts. Here is the formula:
Amperes X Volts = Watts
For example, a power drill rated at 3A consumes 3 Amperes at 120 volts per hour while under a workload. Homes in North America have 120 volt receptacles. Therefore,
3 amps X 120 volts = 360 Watts per hour
