Instructions and waiver of liabilit
2.1 Safety
@The solar charge controller may only be used in PV
systems in accordance with this user manual and the
specifications of other modules manufacturers. No
energy source other than a solar generator may be
connected to the solar charge controller.
@Batteries store a large amount of energy, never short
circuit a battery under all circumstances. We strongly
recommend connecting a fuse directly to the battery to
protect any short circuit at the battery wiring.
(Batteries can produce flammable gases. Avoid making
sparks, using fire or any naked flame. Make sure that the
battery room is ventilated.
@Avoid touching or short circuiting wires or terminals.
Be aware that the voltages on special terminals or wires
can be as much as twice the battery voltage. Use
isolated tools, stand on dry ground, and keep your
hands dry.
©Keep children away from batteries and the charge
2.2 Liability Exclusion
The manufacturer shall not be liable for damages,
especially on the battery, caused by use other than
as intended or as mentioned in this manual or if the
recommendations of the battery manufacturer are
neglected. The manufacturer shall not be liable if
there has been service or repair carried out by any
unauthorized person, unusual use, wrong
installation, or bad system design.

№ To avoid any voltage on the wires, first connect the wire to
the controller, then to the battery, panel or load.
H Make sure the wire length between battery and controller
is as short as possible.
H Recommended minimum wire size: Shine06: 1.5 mmz;
Shine10: 2.5mm?.
H Be aware that the positive terminal of Shine are connected
together and therefore have the same electrical potential.
If any grounding is required, always do this on the positive
EM Connecting capacitive load may trigger short circuit
battery negative on the chassis, loads connected to the
controller must not have an electric connection to the car
body, otherwise the Low Voltage disconnect and electronic
fuse functions of the controller are short circuited.

5.Starting up the controller
5.1Self Test
As soon as the controller is supplied with battery,
it starts a self test routine. Then the display changes
to normal operation.
5.2System Voltage
The controller adjusts itself automatically to 12V
or 24V system voltage. As soon as the battery
voltage at the time of start-up is within 10V to 16V,
the controller implies a 12V system, else if the
battery voltage is within 20V to 30V, the controller
implies a 24V system.
If the battery voltage is not within the normal
operating rang(ca.10 to 16V or ca.20 to 30V)at start-
up, a status display according to the section 7.2
Error description occur.
5.3Battery Type
The Shine series controller applies to Liquid and
Gel battery, the factory default setting is suitable for
liquid battery.
6.Display Functions
The controller is equipped with 5 LEDS.
In normal operation, the controller shows charge or discharge
status, battery capacity and load status.

*2 Controller can protect itself, but loads might be damaged.
*3 Battery must be protected by fuse, or battery will be
permanently damaged.
*4 The solar panel voltage should not exceed this limit for a
long time as voltage protection is done by a varistor.
Warning: The combination of different error
conditions may cause damage to the controller.
Always remove the error before you continue
connecting the controller.

8.Low Voltage Disconnect Function
The controller uses state of charge to protect the
battery form being deeply discharged, Shine series
controller is disconnect at 11.0V/22.0V.

1. If the controller goes into low voltage protection, it will
restore only when the battery being recharged and the
voltage reaching the reconnect voltage.
2. Around oblique line value separately on behalf of 12V
