An easy way for DC protection. Gives you the option for using familiar housings/distribution centres.
The only negative is the design is not compatible with load centre bus bars but can be overcome by grinding out the cb housing to allow bus bar tab to enter under screw head. Obviously voids warranty though
One of the arrow buttons got stuck easily and LCD display went off after 4 days operation. Seeking return and refund
Could have included a short assembly instruction or pics of an assembled frame. Supplied with stainless hose clamps to facilitate fixing to a pole. These were useless and allowed the frame to "windmill' in high winds. I substituted the hose clamps with Stainless Steel 'U' bolts and saddles which are far superior and don't allow the frame to "windmill'. In all other respects I was happy with the product.
The MCCB was missing it's accessories such as mounting bolts and separation plates. The 100A and 125A units i also purchased had them but as this one was unboxed it did not. My collogue and I brought this to the staffs attention last week but neither of us have had a reply.
I ordered the product on 2nd October, it was listed in stock, but wasn't dispatched until 11th October. The item still hasn't been delivered (25th October). The product may be great, but it definitely dampens the experience when an in stock item takes up to a month to be delivered from an online store (and is still not delivered yet).
I purchased two small items that were roughly $20 each. I needed them delivered in one weeks time so I paid the extra $35 for express delivery.
After a week had passed and nothing had arrived I called asking where the products were. The response I received was “sorry we’ve just been a bit busy, we’ll get round to it today”… absolutely spewing. Paying basically twice the value for the items only for them to not show up in time. I had to call the electrician off who was not able to come back for another month to finish the job. DON’T BOTHER PAYING FOR THEIR EXPRESS SERVICE OR USING THESE GUYS IF YOU ARE IN A HURRY!
A friend of mine bought a couple of these 1000 x 400mm panels. The price was very good on sale, so I bought 2 as well. Friends panels have performed well on a trip to QLD, mounted on a boat. I picked up from their warehouse, easy peasy. Clearance panels near the foyer even cheaper, if your close, pip in to save more, 80W $40.
After many phone calls regarding delivery, this company couldn’t care about they flogged me off to the freight company .
Well it’s turned up Melbourne to Albury only took 3 weeks.
But they delivered it to the wrong town so they sent a email telling me where it is and get it.
After 3 weeks trying to get an answer from this company they have put me on to another shit freight company Aramax .
If I was anyone I’d never buy from them.
First and last time
Ordered Monday, Processed Tuesday, shipped Thursday.
Terrible handling times!!!
Still waiting on two panels to be delivered to near Albury freights slow.
I’ve paid top dollar for freight $60plus.
Product was as described. Good quality frame on the panel. SBP themselves were good to work with, they just need to change their shipping agent. Worst shipping I have ever experienced. Was only being shipped from one side of Melbourne to the other. Panel took over 2 weeks to arrive. I could have walked and picked it up quicker. You cannot ring the shipping agent, only talk by their website. Waite time was over 2 hrs and no resolution.
Fantastic quality outstanding output exceeds specifications great store to deal with
Following on from the previous review,.
We had scratched the frame ourselves storing before installing out of the packaging.
This panel is light weight but very sturdy.
We are getting great performance, even under a caravan cover (roof installed) we are getting maintenance value of charge.
Well made panel at a low price. Junction box well made to keep moisture out fitted 15 amp cable with no problems with solder connections. Would buy again. Fast delivery.
