I just saw that this came out:

 

https://solar.ui.com/

 

This looks very cool and I could see that there would be heaps of options for deployments in NZ.

 

Single PoE switch with battery terminals, PV terminals straight into a solar panel, 4 PoE ports and a built in AP if required for configuration.

 

I can think of one installation in Upper Hutt that would have loved to have this solution.

That is really cool. Great for little "repeater" sites where just a couple of radios might be needed.

Interesting it is set up as a 24 Volt system.

 

Shame no support for Lithium batteries.

 

But yes very cool.

I was fairly sure that Lithium batteries weren't typically used in remote solar deployments because they can explode with extreme temperature changes and depending on the cell they are only good for 300-500 cycles. Whereas the deep cycle batteries will last a whole lot longer. But I could be completely wrong here.

Pretty sure it's 24v because most of the Ubiquiti AirMAX equipment runs on 24v passive POE.
