    Default Echo Power Panel EPP12AS Solar Connection

    Hello All

    First I must apologise if this has already been answered I have searched but cannot find anything specific.

    I have bought a solar panel and now on closer inspection I see that my Echo Panel Model EPP12AS Rev 2 has "100w Solar charge controller (Optional)" on it. How do I know if the option is fitted. Not too keen on opening it up but will do if necessary. I have attached 2 pictures. Front and top. The solar connection is fitted to the top but it does not have a "socket" fitted so I assume that mean it does not have the solar option fitted, and I need to add a solar charge
    controller.

    Thanks in advance for advise.

    There are no connector blocks on Sol?

    Presumption that it is not solar ready, thus no charge controller.

    Yes no solar connection. I fitted a victron 75/15 solar charger separably, as the echo panel could not take the 180 watt solar panel.
