Ultra Low Voltage Booster
A new addition to our Constant Voltage (CV) line of products is this ultra low voltage booster. The new CV unit is capable of boosting from as low as 1.2 volts up to a range of 5 to 48 volts. This can be customized as well. Possible application could be boosting from as few as 3 x 0.5V solar cells to trickle charge a 12V battery. Standard units will be added to the respective CV sections under products. Custom inquiries can be sent to our e-mail or any of our dealers.
We are pleased to announce that we are introducing new products this year. The first of these products is an addition to our PPT lineup of linear current boosters. The PPT 16 is a new LCB that is capable of using 12, 24 or 36 volt PV input and capable of running a 12 or 24 volt pump at up to 16 amps. For more information follow this link to the new PPT 16 page.
Welcome To Solar Converters Inc.
Solar Converters Inc. is a manufacturer of highly efficient power control products for the renewable energy field. What makes us so unique is our products can work with any renewable power source to charge virtually any battery voltage or type to operate virtually any load. We have successfully designed and manufactured many custom controllers to solve unusual system configurations.
To address the needs of the renewable energy enthusiast and optimize the value and performance of your renewable energy system, we have developed several product lines of rugged and highly functional Linear Current Boosters, Battery Equalizers, Power Tracker™ charge controllers with Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT), Cathodic Protection Controllers, Generator Starters, Battery Desulphators, Constant Voltage Pump Drivers, Voltage Controlled Switches, Solar Lighting Controllers, DC-DC Converters, and more.
Our products will do voltage conversions between battery and equipment voltage classes. This is especially uselful when long distances are required between the renewable power source and the equipment to be used. This allows smaller wire to be used substantially reducing the wiring cost to the extent that the controller more than pays for itself in wire savings
- 65 V panels charging a 12 V battery
- 48 V panels driving a 24 V pump
- 12 V panel charging 1.5 V Ni-CADs
- 45 V panels charging 24 V battery
Our advanced ultra high efficiency PWM (Pulse Width Modulated) charge controllers and motor drivers trademarked as Power Tracker™ are the cornerstones of our business. This new technology provides 15 - 30% more power from solar panels into discharged batteries and 15 - 50% more drive power for solar pumps and motors than current technology.
This translates into solar panel and battery savings! Why?
Because panels and batteries are EXPENSIVE! By using our Power Tracker™ controllers, fewer solar panels are needed. Our advanced charge control technology treats batteries properly, which saves in expensive battery replacements and landfill space. In addition, our Battery Desulphator extends the life of a battery system and will even recover dead batteries from sulpahtion that would otherwise be trashed.
