Blue Sky Energy, Sun Charger 30, PWM 30 Amp, 12 Volt RV Charge Controller
Blue Sky Energy’s new Sun Charger 30 (SC30) panel-mount solar charge controller will charge a 12 VDC battery bank at up to 30 A from a 12 VDC (nominal) PV array. It uses precise PWM charge voltagecontrol (not MPPT) combined with a sophisticated 3-stage charge algorithm to optimally chargeflooded, GEL, or AGM lead-acid batteries. All charge settings are user adjustable. To periodically conditionflooded batteries, the Sun Charger 30 will also perform a manual or automatic equalization charge.
The SC30 controller is designed to work with 12 VDC nominal PV modules (36-cell), and cannot be used with 60-cell or 72-cell modules. Maximum PV open-circuit voltage at STC is 24.0 VDC. Maximum PV short-circuit current (amps) at STC is 27 A. Maximum PV power output of the array (STC) is 450 W.
The built-in low power LED digital display combines readability with very low power consumption,
includes an automatic night time diming feature and may be turned off completely if desired. The high accuracy display shows battery voltage, and solar charge current, and computes total solar charge amp hours produced.
Conformal coated electronics, anodized face plate and stainless steel fasteners resist corrosion. Built-in protection for reverse polarity, battery/PV swap, transient voltage, over current, over temperature. Operating temperature range is -40°C - +45C. Maximum battery cable and PV array input wire size is #8 AWG.
The dimensions of the Solar Boost Sun Charger 30 are 4 5/8"H x 6 3/8"W x 1 1/4"D. 5-year warranty.
