A charge controller is an essential component of your photovoltaic (PV) system. The controller maintains the life of the battery by protecting it from overcharging. When your battery has reached a 100% state of charge, the controller prevents overcharging by limiting the current flowing into the batteries from your solar array.
Maximum Power Boost Technology
Our 30 Amp Digital Solar Controller features Maximum Power Boost Technology (MPBT). This allows you to override the normal charging algorithm of the solar controller to ‘boost’ the solar charge, which is ideal at the end of the daylight to ensure batteries are topped up for the evening. Performance of the solar controller will not be affected if MPBT function is not utilized.
