Ultra-fast Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT)
In the case of a cloudy sky, when light intensity is changing continuously, the Victron Energy SmartSolar MPPT controller will improve energy harvest by up to 30% compared to PWM charge controllers and by up to 10% compared to slower MPPT controllers.
Advanced Maximum Power Point Detection in case of partial shading conditions
If partial shading occurs, two or more maximum power points may be present on the power voltage curve. Conventional MPPTs tend to lock to a local MPP, which may not be the optimum MPP. The innovative SmartSolar algorithm will always maximize energy harvest by locking to the optimum MPP.
Outstanding conversion efficiency
No cooling fan required. Maximum efficiency exceeds 98%.
Flexible charge algorithm
Fully programmable charge algorithm, and eight preprogrammed algorithms, selectable with a rotary switch.
Extensive electronic protection
Over-temperature protection and power derating when temperature is high. PV short circuit and PV reverse polarity protection. PV reverse current protection.
Internal temperature sensor
Compensates absorption and float charge voltage for temperature.
Bluetooth Smart built-in
The wireless solution to set-up, monitor and update the controller using Apple and Android smartphones, tablets or other devices.
For a wired data connection to a Color Control GX, other GX products, PC or other devices
Can be programmed (a.o. with a smartphone) to trip on an alarm.
Optional: pluggable LCD display
Simply remove the rubber seal that protects the plug on the front of the controller, and plug-in the display
