So, I think I have to put my Update here.
Posted before this: Installation Pictures
Choked all wires and get rid of that USB hub:
(don’t ask about this pencil ;))
That is what you know from my post before :
Right now it getting terribly hot. Measured 60°C in the case while standing in the shade. More to that on the end of this post.
Everything is Powered with Solar:
Voltage is Converted with a East 300W modified sinus inverter (not the efficient way).
20€ Solar charge controller from amazon (works verry well). Using this to charging my USB devices, too.
Thats how i put the Cable from the Solar Cell down on the ground, so that nobody can fall over the wires
50Wp Solar Cell from PhaeSun. Gives me up to 3 Amps input to the solar charger.
Thats how i mounted the solarpanel to the balcony railing.
That is my SNR:
My only known problems with this setup:
- Powering everything in winter time can make some problems
- Not as efficient as I want because of the 300W Inverter. Takes up to 10W to Power the Chip and the SDR
- Getting very hot. When I do the Conversion to only run from 5V (without the Inverter) I put a 5V Laptop fan in it so it
gets some circulation.
- Someone can hit his head on my solar panel
-The whole setup is located in the room of my sister. (Satellite and Sun are in the South )
And that is how my Setup looks. Feel free to comment on that or give some suggestions.
