Intended use
The SC1230-PWM solar charge controller (ref. no. 9600005819) can be installed in
motorhomes or caravans to be connected to solar panels to charge house batteries.
The device may only be used inside the vehicle.

Technical description
The SC1230-PWM solar charge controller enables mobile power supply from solar
panels for 12 Vg/24 Vg devices and two USB devices. The devices can be
simultaneously supplied with power while the 12 Vg /24 Vg battery is being
charged.
The solar charge controller ensures that the power supplied by your solar panels is at
the right voltage to charge your home or auxiliary battery. The solar charge controller
is PWM controlled. It is an intelligent 3 stage solar controller.

Technical description
Solar charge controller
The solar charge controller has the following functions:
• PWM controlled
• Three stage charging (Bulk, Boost/Equalize, Float)
• Battery types selectable: Sealed, Gel, and Flooded
• LCD display dynamically displaying operating data and working condition
• Two USB output ports (maximum output 2.4 A) as power supply charge for
electronic equipment
The solar charge controller has the following protective functions:
• Incorrect polarity protections for solar module and battery
• Battery overvoltage protection
• Battery overheating protection
• Battery over-discharge protection
• Load overload protection
• Load short circuit protection
• Controller overheating protection
Battery temperature sensor (available as an accessory)
The battery temperature sensor allows the solar charge controller to continuously
adjust charge voltage based on measured battery temperature. Temperature compensation of charge voltage assures that the battery receives the proper charge voltage as battery temperature changes during normal operation.
