Charge Controller is Important part of any solar power system installation
A solar charge controller plays an important role in prolonging the life of your solar battery. Solar charge controllers protect batteries from the dangers of being overcharged and completely discharged, both of which significantly reduce battery lifespan. EasySolar offer a range of solar charge controllers to prolong the life of your batteries.
What does a solar charge controller do?
Solar charge controllers, also known as solar charge regulators, monitor the condition of your battery according to the power generated by solar panels and charge battery according to the battery specification. A solar charge controller will determine when to disconnect or reconnect your battery to its power source according to voltage readings. Many contain digital screens to keep you informed of the charge status of your battery.
Easysolar Types of solar charge controllers:
- Pulse Width Modulation PWM controllers reduce the charging current as soon as maximum voltage is reached, and keeps the charge low to prevent overheating.
- Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) controllers: maintain optimum power levels between solar panels and battery. MPPT controllers are very efficient, particularly in cold weather, and come in a range of models.
