Renogy 40 Amp Commander MPPT Solar Charge Controller

Take command of your off-grid solar power system with this new and improved 40A MPPT charge controller. Unlike a basic PWM Controller, this charge controller is compatible with sealed lead-acid, flooded, and gel batteries (all deep cycle). This controller keeps the batteries from becoming over-charged or discharged, increasing the longevity of your batteries. This high tech controller features Multiphase Synchronous Rectification and Maximum Power Point Tracking technologies, which increases charging efficiency and improves system performance.

The Renogy Wanderer - 30A PWM Charge Controller

The Renogy Wanderer is a 30A PWM charge controller. This advanced negative-ground controller is designed for off-grid solar applications and can be used with a 12V battery or battery bank. Integrating highly efficient PWM charging, the Wanderer increases battery life and improves system performance. The controller comes equipped with fully comprehensive self-diagnostics and electronic protection functions to prevent damage from installation mistakes or system faults. Negative grounding controller ensures the broader off grid applications and safety, especially to be used on a vehicle which has battery negative on the chassis. A little extra investment on the right charge controller will generate a much higher return and prevent system failure.

Renogy 20 Amp MPPT Solar Charge Controller

MPPT circuit solar charge controllers are considerably more elaborate than standard PWM solar power controllers. The voltage of the solar panel changes with time of day and temperature. The optimum voltage for battery charging changes as the state of charge of the battery changes. The MPPT photovoltaic charge controller matches these voltages and can result in 30% more efficient transfer of power. This means that quality MPPT solar charge controller can reduce the number of solar panels needed by up to 30% ­ a tremendous benefit. While only a small part of system price, a MPPT solar panel charge controller can leverage the rest of the system to better performance.
