Morningstar SunSaver SS-10-12V, PWM Charge Controller, 10 Amp, 12 Volt
The SunSaver is a very reliable charge controller and uses the same battery charging algorithm as the ProStar and offers many of the advantages of the ProStar for smaller systems, at a reduced cost. Constant voltage pulse width modulation (PWM) charging is a proven advance compared to the common on/off PV regulators. SunSavers are field-selectable for sealed or flooded batteries. A rugged anodized aluminum case and epoxy encapsulated electronics ensure durability and longevity. A temperature compensation sensor in the charge controller varies full charge voltage with temperature.12V, 10A. 5-year warranty. Dimensions: 6" x 2.2" x 1.3".
Morningstar SunSaver SS-10-12V, PWM Charge Controller
Rated Solar Current: 10 Amp
Rated Load Current: 10 Amp
System Voltage: 12 Volt
The MorningStar SunSaver line of controllers (8 models in all) have built-in temperature compensation, they are epoxy encapsulated, but are not outdoor rated since they have an exposed front mounted 7 position terminal strip. Units are available for 12 or 24V systems ranging in amperage capacity from 6-20 amps. The regulating voltage is adjustable for sealed or flooded batteries by simply removing/installing an included metal jumper between terminals 6 and 7.
A green "charging" LED is standard on all SunSaver units while the units with the optional low voltage disconnect (LVD) for a DC load also have a red LED to indicate when the load has been disconnected to prevent the battery from being over discharged. Each terminal can accept up to two #10 AWG wires.
Dimensions are 6" x 2.2" x 1.3"
