PT 90-15


90 V 15 Amp Charge Controller

Model: PT 90 – 15


 


This unit has Maximum Power Point Tracking and voltage conversions. What is Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT)?

FEATURES

Single unit Mutlivoltage operation

  • will even charge a 12 , 24, 48 or 96 V battery from a 90 V array or an “odd voltage” array

Real world 15 – 30 % more current than conventional technology into discharged batteries

  • means faster battery charging or higher system power at similar cost

Maximizes Battery Life

  • Dual Float Charge Technique
  • recommended by battery manufacturers (1) for maximum capacity and lifetime

Transient Protection

Low Noise

Overvoltage Protection

  • Regulates output at float level even without batteries connected (or bad batteries). Will substantially recover lost battery if recoverable.

REMOTE INTERFACE

Temperature Compensation:

  • Uses a National LM335Z temperature sensor available from Solar Converters Inc.

LVD Control:

  • Short these terminals together with a relay contact, (rated 32 V @ .1 A – be careful of dry contacts) or a similiarly rated transistor and the LVD will open; forming an effective load disconnect.
