Ecogreen Multis is a self-propelled electric machine designed to harvest zucchini, eggplants, bell peppers, strawberries and other products. It is extremely versatile and customizable, so much so that it can also be used for transplants and manual weeding.
"It is now available with an on-board battery charging system made up of 2 monocrystalline PERC photovoltaic panels. Each panel is connected to a charge regulator that obtains the maximum instantaneous power in all weather conditions and which charges the 24V 260Ah lead-acid battery pack," explains company owner Leonardo Zanarini.
The system also features a backlit 2x16 LCD screen displaying the following information: current, voltage, instantaneous Watts produced by the single panels and total Wh produced.
"The photovoltaic plant was developed in collaboration with Aicon Industry, which also supplied the materials. The prototype was tested at Fratelli Tramonti Società Semplice in San Mauro Pascoli (FC) during the 2020 zucchini summer harvesting season. The machine was completely autonomous for the entire season. Lithium batteries are currently being tested."
The solar panel version has become very popular in the past year, with an increasing number of pleased customers both in Italy and abroad.
