This Victron 100V 50A MPPT controller comes from the intelligent BlueSolar range, which uses the latest ultrafast MPPT technology to maximise energy harvest whilst maintaining optimal battery health. BlueSolar MPPT controllers uniquely boast an intelligent battery life function, along with advanced communication options for remote system monitoring.
Ultrafast MPPT Technology:
This 50A MPPT solar charge controller is designed to deliver the highest possible energy yield in the shortest amount of time. This is achieved through the use of high speed Maximum Power Point Tracking technology, which tracks the maximum power voltage point of the solar panels as it varies depending on sunlight exposure and temperature.
This technology enables the controller to produce up to 30% greater energy yield than PWM controllers and as much as 10% more power than slower MPPT controllers. This advanced technology allows the controller to perform extremely well in low-light or cloudy conditions, as the controller consistently strives to extract the maximum available power from the solar array.
Inbuilt safety protection:
Fully equipped with an extensive range of safety features, this controller offers complete protection against potential hazards such as PV short circuit, PV reverse polarity, PV reverse current, battery reverse polarity and battery overheating - monitored via the internal temperature sensor. The controller also has self-diagnostic capability and highlights any system errors using sophisticated fault-targeting technology. These are signalled via the high intensity LED indicators.
Advanced programming and monitoring:
The user can connect an optional MPPT Control panel (sold separately) to the controller to access a range of monitoring and programming functions. The display shows charging parameters (voltage, current, power) for the solar panel and battery as well as 30 day performance data. The user can also set the duration and voltage of each charging stage.
The Victron BlueSolar MPPT 100-50 model is ideal for a wide range of applications as it is resistant to extreme temperatures, high altitudes, dusty environments and marine environments. The unit enclosure is IP43 water resistant with resin encapsulation of the internal electrical components and has a PD3 pollution rating.
This solar charge controller is also compatible with a wide range of battery types, including AGM, Gel, Tubular plate and Lithium batteries.
