Innovative Kiosk Design Uses Solar Power

EcoTech Computers partnered with the University of Florida to provide engineering students and visitors with wayfinding kiosks powered by solar energy.

“The self-contained system draws its power requirements directly from a solar array and stores the collected energy in its deep cycle battery bank, allowing kiosk usability even in times of little to no sun exposure. Even the kiosk’s fanless processor and 21-inch LED high contrast monitor operate without the need for a traditional power supply. The university gathers information from each solar farm and displays it directly on the kiosk, refreshing it every 15 minutes. The kiosk also provides wayfinding to each of the solar farms, along with access to the university’s website.”

    When you are serious about your move to solar energy and begin using panels that sink more than 6 watts, invest in a solar controller. These small controls help maximize the efficiency of the charge cycle and prevent any wasted overcharging from occurring. When there is a lot of energy at stake, these are a must have for your solar-home.;
