PV Battery Charge Controllers from Xantrex, OutBack Power and more...

There are numerous charge controllers on the market with many different features and options, but they all have one thing in common:  preventing your batteries from being overcharged. Some of the older style charge controllers used a simple voltage-sensitive relay, connecting the solar array to the battery bank when the battery voltage was low and disconnecting it when the battery voltage was high. Most charge controllers today utilize pulse-width modulation (PWM) or maximum power point tracking (MPPT) charging algorithms (or both) to get the most power out of an array and to maintain batteries at the highest state of charge possible. Some of the options available on charge controllers include digital displays, battery temperature compensation, and low voltage disconnect of a DC load. We carry charge controllers from four different manufacturers, so please read the information below and feel free to call us toll free at 877-627-4778 with any questions.

 

Xantrex 
(formerly Trace) Charge Controllers

All charge controllers from Xantrex feature a 3-stage PWM charging algorithm, which is a big step up from the older relay style controllers. The C12 is a small, 12V/12A unit that is unique in that it can operate as a charge controller and 12 VDC load controller at the same time (something most other controllers can't do). The C12 also has a built-in automatic lighting control circuit that will turn a 12VDC light on at dusk and run it for a user-adjustable time period or from dusk to dawn if there is enough energy stored in the battery bank. Additionally, the C12 has user-adjustable voltage set points, a tri-color system status LED, battery temperature sensor option, is outdoor rated and has a very versatile 12V charge/load/light controller. The C12 measures 6.5" H x 4.3" W x 1.5" D and features a two-year warranty.   more info...

 

MorningStar
PWM Charge Controllers

MorningStar has a full line of PWM charge controllers ranging in size from their basic 4 amp SunGuard up to their brand new, top-of-the-line 60 amp TriStar. All their controllers feature a PWM charging algorithm and battery temperature sensing either built into the unit (SunGuard, SunSaver, SunLight & ProStar) or as an optional sensor (ProStar & TriStar). MorningStar is driven to make their controllers as efficient and reliable as possible while keeping the price competitive with other manufacturers. All of the MorningStar controllers feature a 5-year warranty, and we highly recommend them for small to medium sized photovoltaic systems.  more info...

 

Blue Sky Energy  Charge Controllers

RV Power Products was the first company to really pursue the Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) market with its line of Solar Boost charge controllers. Given the right conditions (low battery voltage and cool ambient temperatures), these controllers can increase your solar array's charging current by 30% or more as compared to other conventional charge controllers.  All Solar Boost charge controllers are covered by a 5-year limited warranty.

Blue Sky Energy created the Integrated Power Net™, or IPN Network, to provide both a charge controller communication strategy as well as create the next generation of Solar Boost MPPT charge controllers. The advanced high speed digital network allows up to 8 IPN-capable charge controllers to communicate with each other and operate as a single machine. The IPN Network also allows networked controllers to share an optional battery temperature sensor and remote display. The IPN Network does not require an additional controller, display, or other special communication hardware or software to operate. more info...

 

OutBack Power Systems 
Charge Controllers

OutBack Power Systems only makes one charge controller the FLEXmax, and many of us in the industry think it is the greatest thing since sliced bread.  more...

Midnite Solar
The Classic

One of the only MPPT charge controllers that offers arc fault detection, a feature that will soon be required by the FEC, click here to learn more.
