With a weight of only two kilograms, the FLINpole+ is very light and is therefore also suitable for use on regatta yachts. Thanks to the lightweight and very rigid construction, the FLINpole+ is very stable in the wind and can remain permanently mounted. It is therefore ideal for maintaining battery charge on board.
The FLINpole+ can be attached to the pushpit or to an equipment carrier via the pre-mounted clamps. With the help of the lines and the integrated clamp, the solar panel can be aligned as desired and continuously, making it particularly efficient. In addition, the back of the bifacial solar panel captures light reflected from the water and deck.
The performance of a solar module depends on its alignment at the perfect angle. For maximum energy generation from solar radiation, the solar module in the FLINpole+ can be aligned at the perfect angle to the sun. This allows considerable daily yields to be achieved even with the small solar surface.
The FLINpole+ uses a bifacial solar panel that harvests energy equally from both sides. The back of the solar panel captures the light reflected from the water or deck, generating up to 20% more energy compared to conventional solar panels of the same size.
In contrast to the classic busbar technology, our solar modules are manufactured using the latest G-Wire technology and have a very high number of electrical contacts. The solar module in the FLINpole+ is reinforced by an anodized aluminum frame and connected to the flexible joint via robust carbon fiber rods. For a reliable power supply of your on-board electrics, all components of the FLIN products are manufactured with high precision and in Europe.

Yes, a charge controller and a suitable connector to the FLINpole+ are required. If you have a suitable charge controller and interface, you can connect your FLINpole+. You can find a suitable charge controller for your FLIN product here.
We are happy to advise you and offer a charge controller and connector for your FLINpole+.
The FLINpole+ is a plug & play system. Therefore, no design changes need to be made to the sailing yacht in order to use the FLINpole+. The cables can be routed watertight below deck using any deck grommet.
