System Overview

The ZimSolar Explorer ZE series of Off-Grid 12Vdc Solar Power Systems are the best choice if budget is the limiting factor or if you simply want to explore the benefits of solar power by starting up with a DC voltage system whilst still retaining the option to upgrade later to an AC voltage system.

These solar energy systems are designed to generate 12Volt DC electricity for off-grid settings where there is no 230V/50Hz AC mains electricity grid or any other AC voltage power source such as a generator.

The ZimSolar Explorer range is designed to work only with electrical appliances that are rated for use with DC voltage at 12Vdc (or lower at 9Vdc, 6Vdc and 3Vdc).
Applicable Settings:
  • rural homes
  • rural shops or stores
  • urban homes (off-grid)
  • farm houses
  • safari game lodges
  • rural clinic - nurse accommodation
  • rural school - teacher accommodation
  • cell phone charging station or business
  • CCTV security cameras and lights
If your appliances require a 230V/50Hz AC mains type voltage, then check out the ZimSolar Essentials or ZimSolar Autonomy or ZimSolar Navigator range of 230Vac/50Hz AC systems

How to Upgrade the ZimSolar Explorer packagesExpandability: The power available from each of the above packages can be upgraded by:
  • adding more solar panels (within design limits)
  • or adding more solar batteries(of same size and batch)
  • or adding an inverter and addional safety components.
Installation ServiceEach package comes complete with the installation service from ZimSolar.
Maintenace ServiceZimSolar also offer a post-installation maintenance service if required.
Wiring Installation ServiceZimSolar provide an Electrical Wiring Installation service for homes or buildings in rural or urban locations if required.

Package Usage Options:

Each ZimSolar Explorer package can be used to provide electrical power to any DC operated appliances as follows:
  • Home Lighting
  • Audio Visual Entertainment
  • Refrigeration
  • Computing and Communication
  • CDMA Wireless Phone Terminals
  • Cell Phone Charging
  • Motion Sensor PIR Security Lights
  • CCTV Security Camera Systems
Upgrade Path highlightNote: DC voltage cannot be used to power electrical appliances that are rated to only operate from AC voltage power source (e.g. 230Vac/50Hz).

Upgrade Path highlightIf you plan in future to use appliances that require an AC voltage system, you can easily upgrade later when you are ready by adding an Inverter and additional safety components to the system.

Key Features and Benefits:
Great starter package.
Easy to upgrade from DC power to AC power
Initial costs cheaper; therefore more affordable.
starSimpler wiring; therefore quicker & cheaper to install
starLow DC voltage is safer than AC; therefore requires less safety components
starDC voltage cannot be used with mains operated appliances


If your appliances require an AC voltage, then choose from the right package from the ZimSolar Navigator range of 230V/50Hz AC Solar Power Systems
Key Components:
A - Solar Array Panels or Modules
B - Solar Charge Controller or Regulator
C - Solar Battery Bank (Deep Cycle)
D - Solar Array Combiner (junction box)
E - Customer DC electrical load (appliances)

Additional components:
F - Solar Array Mounting Frame
G - Earth Bonding Kit (if mounted on the roof)
H - Cables, Connectors, Conduits and accessories

Pricing Information:



We promise to do our best to respond promptly to your enquiries.

Optional Components:
  • Electrical Wiring for the Building
  • Battery Storage Box
  • PV Array Circuit Breakers (installed in Array Combiner Box)
  • DC Disconnect Enclosure
  • DC Disconnect Breaker (installed in above enclosure)
  • DC Circuit Breakers for DC Enclosure
  • Lightning Arrestors
  • Energy Efficient CFL (DC) Light Bulbs

If your appliances require an AC voltage system now, then simply choose the right package from the ZimSolar Navigator series of AC Solar Power Systems

Upgrade Path highlightHot Tip: If you are planning to buy DC appliances, then try to purchase the type that operates on both DC and AC mains voltage if possible. This will enable you to continue using your appliances should you later decide to upgrade to an AC power system.
Upgrade Path highlightZimSolar offer an electrical wiring installation service.
Upgrade Path highlightZimSolar can supply you with a wide range of energy efficient DC appliances that operate on DC only (e.g. Light bulbs) or on both DC and AC mains power (e.g. Fridges, Freezers and Fridge/Freezers)



Upgrade Path highlightSolar electric panels produce the type of electricity called direct current (DC). This is the type of electricity that is stored in or produced from a battery (e.g. 12V battery).

The ZimSolar Explorer ZE range of Off-Grid DC Solar Power Systems are designed to provide the above type of electricity to your 12V DC operated electrical appliances. ZimSolar can also supply systems that run at 24dc and 48Vdc.



Upgrade Path highlightIn Southern Africa, the mains electricity grid (e.g. ZESA, Eskom) supplies the type of electricity that is called alternating current (AC) and this is delivered to your home at a voltage of 230Vac/50Hz.

If you need the above type of power, then have a look at the ZimSolar Essentials or ZimSolar Autonomy or ZimSolar Navigator packages.

Soalr Array PV Combiner

This is used as a juncion box in situations where there are many panels in order to connect up all the wires coming out of all solar panels into a two-wire circuit. In addition,.the combiner is used to hold the over current protection breakers for the solar array modules.

The Combiner is designed to survive outdoor environments. Its rainproof, UL type 3R powder coated aluminium chassis can be mounted on a wall, sloped roof or pole.

The unique angled negative terminal bus bar design makes wiring fast and easy without the larger output conductors blocking access to the smaller input terminals. Dual output lug terminals are included for up to 2/0 AWG conductors.
