Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) is a technique used to get the maximum possible power from a solar panel. It is achieved by putting a variable load on the panel so that it achieves its optimum output voltage, and then converting that voltage to the optimum required by the battery. The effect of this can be to produce output up to 30% higher than a similar panel without this technology. This Victron MPPT charge controller automatically adjusts for 12 or 24 volt systems.
This charge controller can handle 200 Watts of solar if your battery is 12 Volts and 400 Watts if your battery is 24 Volts.
This charge controller can handle up to a maximum of 75 Volts from the panels even though the battery voltage is only 12 or 24 Volts. The panel voltage must be at least 5 volts above battery voltage.
Yes Bluetooth is built in and is accessed using the free Victron Connect app on your phone or tablet. The app can be downloaded from the Apple or Android stores and you can try it out in demo mode.
This charge controller is fully programmable using the Victron Connect Bluetooth app on your phone. There is a pre-programmed option for Lithium batteries.
This charge controller comes with a five year manufacturers warranty.
This is a Smart Solar Charge Controller. In Victron terminology "Smart" means it has Bluetooth built-in, so you don't need a dongle.This charge controller is good for 200 Watts if you have a 12 volt battery bank or 400 Watts if you have a 24 volt battery bank.
