Apollo Solar | 4048 | t80hv turbocharger high voltage input, 80 amp mppt battery charge

HIGH VOLTAGE INPUT, 80 AMP
MPPT BATTERY CHARGE
MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
180 Volt maximum PV open circuit voltage
T80HV TURBOCHARGER
™
The T80HV works with the higher voltage PV modules. For
example, some of the Sanyo HIT modules have Vmp of
51.75v at 50oC which will not charge a 48 volt battery, but
they generate up to 79.88 volts open circuit at -40oC. Two
of these modules in a series string will generate 103 volts at
Vmp, but the Voc is almost 160 volts which can damage the
140/150 volt charge controllers. The T80HV is designed to
withstand 200 Voc, run MPPT to 180V and to operate up to
160 Vmp. They work well with the Sanyo HIT modules.
FREE Energy Monitor Built In
The T80HV includes a built-in Energy Monitor using
TriMetric™ Technology from Bogart Engineering. The monitor
tracks power production and consumption to calculate the
energy remaining in the battery. State-of-Charge (SOC) is
displayed in Percent Full, Amp-hours, Watt-Hours, and BarGraph format. In addition, 90 days of energy-harvest history
is stored in the T80HV.
Power and Control in a Single Device
The T80HV TurboCharger™ integrates Maximum Power
Point Tracking, battery charge management, state-of-charge
information, and communications into a single device.

Our proven MPPT provides the
best Energy Harvest available
Easy stacking of up to 16 T80HV’s
in parallel for higher currents
Precision charging of 12/24/36/48V
batteries using voltage sense wires
The slot for optional add-in cards provides data
communication to PCs and the Internet using our
Communication Gateway. System performance can be
monitored remotely. T80HV also accepts software upgrades
using a PC and the Remote Display SD Card.
Continuous Power Rating Up to 45oC/113˚F Ambient
The T80HV TurboCharger™ produces full-rated power
without de-rating at up to 45oC ambient temperature. Above
that temperature, the output current is reduced gradually to
protect the life of the T80HV and then automatically ramped
up as the temperature decreases. High-efficiency power
circuits and robust thermal design minimize heat generation.
The internal temperature-controlled variable speed fan runs
just fast enough to maintain optimum reliability.
Optimum MPPT/Charging Efficiency Cuts Costs
The T80HV captures up to 35% more power from the
photovoltaic (PV) array with patent-pending MPPT
technology. The Apollo MPPT algorithm starts early and
locks onto the peak power during rapidly changing insolation
and temperature. The T80HV dramatically cuts the cost of a
PV system by reducing the number of PV panels required,
eliminating the need for heavy gauge wiring, and increasing
the life of the storage batteries.
Enhanced Battery Performance and Life
The T80 supports Flooded Lead Acid (FLA), GEL and
Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) batteries. Four-stage charging
with adjustable set points for all parameters.
