PPT units with 24V 60 Cell panel compatibility added
Solar Converters Inc. has updated three pump driver controllers with the capability of efficiently using 60 cell 24 volt nominal panels. While they are still backwards compatible with 72 cell panels, the new option allows the end user to select 60 cell panels if they are being used. 12 volt panel compatibility remains the same. The following parts have the new option. Part numbers and cost remain the same.
Any of our products can have 60 cell panel compatability or can be modified for odd panel voltages upon request. Contact us for more information.
Sunrise Pump Controller
Many years ago Solar Converters Inc. built the Sunrise pump controller for Dankoff's Sunrise pump. These pumps proved to be reliable, along with the controller, operating for over 10 years and still going. In the past we have been able to repair damaged controllers. However now that these controllers are seeing run times of up to 14 years, age is becoming a factor. Certain electronic components do have a reliable life time after which their reliability becomes an issue. Repairing these aging controllers is no longer recommended from a reliability stand point. For this reason Solar Converters Inc. is now building new Sunrise controllers, model SC1-PV, to replace failed or damaged controllers. Contact us for pricing.

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.
