Stand-Alone Power Systems (SAPS)

CPS National’s Stand-Alone Power Systems (SAPS) are self-sufficient power generation systems designed to provide a continuous, reliable power supply to an isolated consumption source.

Designed to replace the traditional ‘pole and wires’ grid connection, SAPS utilise an array of technology including solar PV panels, inverters and battery storage to supply a consistent, clean, off-grid power source. The integration of a reserve diesel generator ensures the system’s ability to continually operate autonomously.

CPS National have designed and engineered three variations of the Stand-Alone Power System, the Nano SAPS to power small loads, the Solar Cube to power medium loads and the SAPS R-Series, a scalable solution designed to power larger loads.

SAPS R-Series

Designed to supply power to larger loads, CPS National’s SAPS R-Series are a popular solution to utility and commercial scale remote power applications.

SAPS nano stand alone power system


Designed to power smaller loads in harsh remote locations, the Nano SAPS robust and weather proof design sees it a popular power source for remote rail signalling, remote telecommunications, and small farming loads.

Solar Cube

The CPS National designed ‘Solar Cube’ is an ideal solution for medium loads located in remote locations where a reliable power supply is essential.

The Solar Cube’s modular design is key to its diverse application. The systems folding structure and plug and play commissioning facilitates a quick and simple on-site installation process. The integration of a back-up diesel generator, inverter, batteries and remote monitoring capabilities ensure a reliable off-grid power solution.

Designed to provide a reliable, off-grid power supply to medium loads, the Solar Cube provides significant benefit when utilised to support remote communication exchanges and small radio communication sites.


  • Modular, folding design that facilitates quick and easy installation
  • Plug and play commissioning, allowing simple replacement in the event off-site maintenance should be required
  • Integrated generator, batteries and inverter ensures reliable off-grid performance
  • Integrated remote monitoring and control capability

Single Day Commissioning

The Solar Cube goes from back of truck to supplying load in just 76 minutes.

SAPS R-Series

CPS National’s SAPS R-Series are designed to provide a reliable, off-grid power source to large loads located in remote areas. The largest of the three SAPS offerings, the SAPS R-Series is a robust stand-alone solution designed to completely replace the traditional mains power supply.

Designed as an adaptable solution to power large loads, the SAPS R-Series is available in three different iterations, the SAPS R-8, R-16 and R-24 (larger and customised systems also available). These iterations are correspondent to the kilowatt output of each units solar array.

The addition of remote monitoring and control capabilities ensure the SAPS R-Series offering is an ideal solution for commercial and utility scale application where a connection to the traditional overhead network is unfeasible.


  • Single or three phase power
  • Available in three capacities: R-8, R-16 and R-24
  • Custom designed to suit individual site requirements
  • Remote monitoring and control capabilities
  • Single control module manages power sources seamlessly

Designed as a power solution for utilisation within harsh, remote environments, the Nano SAPS was engineered with adaptability in mind.

Outputting 240VAC, the Nano SAPS is designed to power small loads with the systems small footprint providing ease of transportation, ensuring remote area suitability. A robust and weatherproof design coupled with a simple ‘plug and play’ commissioning process and integrated remote monitoring capabilities ensures a complete, off-grid stand-alone power solution.

Given its small stature, this system provides significant benefit to remote agricultural applications including providing power to small pumps, electric fences and dwellings.


  • Small footprint providing ease of transportation and remote area suitability
  • Simple plug and play commissioning
  • Completely off-grid, stand-alone solution
  • Outputs 240VAC
  • Remote monitoring and control integration
  • Robust and weatherproof design

Project Focus – Utilising Solar Power to Provide Continuous Power to Remote Communications System

SAPS communications stand alone power system cps national

CPS National was contracted by Kordia – Defence to supply materials and installation of solar panels, regulators, batteries, battery enclosures and inverters to two sites at the Bradshaw Defence Training Areas in the Northern Territory.

Installers were onsite to construct and install a solar remote area power system to continuously supply power to Defence communication systems. Sites were located on the Southern and Northern ridges of the valley. Access to the remote locations was only available via helicopter which flew the materials and installers in daily.

On completion of the project, a continuous power supply to the Defence communications system by solar powered backup was achieved. This provided uninterrupted communication between the sites in a remote area.
