We have extensive product knowledge and experience in designing, commissioning and testing systems with charge controllers and inverters
Charge Controllers and Inverters
A Charge Controller, or charge regulator is basically a voltage and/or current regulator to keep batteries from being overcharged. It regulates the voltage and current coming from the solar panels going to the battery. Most “12 volt” panels put out about 16 to 18 volts, so if there is no regulation the batteries will be damaged from overcharging.
Charge controllers come in all shapes, sizes, features, and price ranges. They range from small 4.5 amp controllers, up to 60 and 80 amp MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) programmable controllers with computer interface.
Classic and TriStar Charge Controllers with MPPT Technology
Innovative MPPT technology ensures that your solar array is operating at its peak power regardless of age, shading or environmental conditions – increasing the performance by up to 30%.
The new Radian Series Inverter/Charger is an integrated power appliance that does it all.
