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 many different manufacturers, so please read the information below and feel free to call us 406-777-4321 with any questions.

 

Magnum Dimensions

Magnum Energy has entered the Charge Controller world with their Magnum PT-100 model.

Xantrex 
 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 Charge Controllers offers PWM as well as MPPT charging technologies, 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 NEC, click here to learn more.
