We fitted our first Avtex Snipe Pro yesterday alongside a 140w solar panel coupled to a votronic MPP250 MPPT regulator and associated Votronic 1250 Solar Monitor Panel and just wanted to let our readership know our thoughts on this new piece of kit.

We often have customers who have old none working satellite systems on their roofs who are wanting to upgrade to something new / operational.
This is possible and if done correctly has no issues. Firstly you unscrew / unbolt the main system.

Once the bulk is removed then get to work with elbow grease and clean off the area using solvent cleaner (We use IPA) and then finally you are ready to install afresh.
We finally got around to mounting some of our certifications & accreditations on the wall this morning.
