12V/24V 30A MPPT Solar Charge Controller

Powertech



MPPT technology uses DC to DC conversion along with some electronic smarts to be able to extract the absolute maximum charging power from your solar panels, giving you up to an extra 10-40% from your solar panels when compared to a normal PWM charge controller. Adding to the benefits of MPPT technology are the features of this charge controller, such as 3-stage battery charging, twin timer programming, 30A load control with automatic load disconnection/reconnection, and much more. Programming is simple and intuitive via the front panel buttons whilst the LCD screen shows you what's happening. Suitable for 12V or 24V systems.
