For many years, HOPPECKE has been using the long-term experience for the development and production of storage systems in the field of using self-produced energy. The increasing use of renewable energy enhances the importance of rechargeable energy stores. HOPPECKE develops saleable future concepts and contributes to the solution of the big challenges of today’s society that arise from the realization of the climate protection goals. We offer a wide range of different individual solutions: For detached houses, for commerce and industry and for energy stores in energy supply grids.
Since the beginning of 2017 all sun products are adapted to the HOPPECKE companys naming strategy. This brings a consistent product naming system and will therefore be easy and logically to understand for our customers.
sun is one out of four HOPPECKE application areas, the others are grid (stationary energy solutions), trak (mobile energy solutions) and rail (railway and metro systems).
A further differentiation is made with the basic technology:
V = vented batteries
VR = valve regulated batteries
The HOPPECKE sun portfolio is now named as follows:
Energy storage for using the self-produced energy
sun | powerpack premium (former: sun.power pack LiOn):
An innovative solution designed for the changing requirements of the customers for a higher service life and highest security guaranteed by the integrated battery management system with redundant switch-off mechanism. Easy handling and installation and a space-saving design. Neither active cooling nor ventilations at the installation site required.
sun | powerpack classic (former: sun.power pack):
Based on the proven lead technology combined with an appealing and up-to-date design. The awarded AGM-technology of HOPPECKE has been optimised particularly for this application, for instance by adapting the material of the electrode.
The result: Improved price-performance ratio at a comparable cycle performance compared to batteries of the design OPzV (battery with liner plate).
The sun | powerpack classic offers many benefits for the installer and user. Installing and servicing of the system is even simpler. Additionally, it is the first choice for price-oriented and environmentally conscious customers.
Compatible batteries for photovoltaic resp. renewable energy storage systems
sun | power V L (former: OPzS solar.power):
Vented lead-acid battery for cyclic applications. Highest cycle stability during PSoC (Partial State of Charge) operation. Maximum energy efficiency by optimized electrolyte recirculation sun | air prepared as standard.
sun | power VR L (former: OPzV solar.power):
Valve regulated lead-acid battery for cyclic applications. Maintenance-free regarding water refilling - due to innovative gel-technology. Very high cycle stability during PSoC operation due to tubular plate design with efficient charge current acceptance.
sun | power V L bloc (former: OPzS bloc solar.power):
Vented lead-acid battery for cyclic applications. Easy assembly and installation - battery lid with integral handle.
sun | power VR L bloc (former: OPzV bloc solar.power):
Valve regulated lead-acid battery for cyclic applications. Easy assembly and installation - battery lid with integral handle. Maintenance-free regarding water refilling - due to innovative gel-technology. Very high cycle stability during PSoC operation due to tubular plate design with efficient charge current acceptance.
sun | power VR M (former: Solar.bloc)
Valve regulated lead-acid battery for cyclic applications. Optimizied cycle stability - due to improved electrode design for efficiently charge current acceptance. Optimum operational safety - integrated backfire protection and central degassing system.
Components for sun | power batteries
sun | fusebox (former: sun.fusebox):
Battery back-up load disconnector for disconnecting and protecting the battery installation. Used both in PV home storage solutions as well as in off-grid applications. Battery protection according to the DIN EN 50272-2 with all-pole disconnection of the battery installation. Suitable for connection to 24V and 48V battery inverters.
sun | air (former: Electrolyte Circulation System):
Pumps ambient air to the bottom of each battery cell. Emerging air bubbles rise through the electrolyte, ensuring a homogeneous electrolyte density distribution in each cell. The system is switched on and off automatically and is virtually maintenance free. The system is easy to install (plug and play), works independently and can be retrofit to sun | power V L batteries. For safe operation the system is equipped with maintenance free pump monitor and filter for air intake.
