Tank Alert® Solar

Solar Powered Indoor/Outdoor Alarm System

The innovative Tank Alert® Solar alarm warns of potentially threatening liquid levels in water and wastewater applications by utilizing a solar panel with battery backup for easy installation and operation. It’s a simple, ideal solution for seasonal homes, cabins in remote locations, or for retrofitting existing systems.

The Tank Alert® Solar alarm is powered by a rechargeable battery via 12 VDC, 10 watt solar panel. Lithium Ion batteries provide backup power. The unit must be installed in a location with adequate sunlight for solar charging. When an alarm condition occurs, the beacon will illuminate and the horn will activate. The horn can be silenced with the test/silence push button. Once the condition is cleared, the alarm will automatically reset. In full alarm, the unit will run for approximately 24 hours. Idle unit without any solar charging will run for approximately 5 days.
