Xantrex Conext MPPT 60/150 Solar Charge Controller
Our 1,300W solar system includes two of these charge controllers: one for the series of four 160W rigid panels and the other for the series of four 165W Flex Max panels. Using two controllers allows each series of panels to be optimized for the solar conditions they are experiencing… and since the rigid panels are tiltable, the two series of panels can operate at their most-efficient voltage, ensuring our array is putting out the most power it can.
The Xantrex MPPT Solar Charge Controller is a photovoltaic (PV) charge controller that tracks the electrical maximum power point of a PV array to deliver the maximum available current for charging batteries. The XW SCC can be used with 12, 24, 36, 48, and 60-volt DC battery systems.
Two or three-stage charging process, with manual equalization to maximize system performance and maintain expected battery life
Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) to deliver the maximum available power from a PV array to a battery bank
Configurable auxiliary power output
Two-line, 16-character liquid crystal display (LCD) and four buttons
for configuration and system monitoring in stand-alone applications
Battery Temperature Sensor (BTS) to provide automatically temperature-compensated battery charging
The Charge Controller is able to communicate its settings and
activity to other XanbusTM-enabled devices.
- Easy to program
- Well suited for warm climates. Large heat sink
- For 12, 24, and 48 Volt Battery Based Systems
