PL series (20 – 60 A) Solar Charge Controllers

PL series (20 – 60 A)
Solar Charge Controllers
The PL series offers complete control over the charge cycle
and various information about past and actual battery
performance. The PL regulators have a built-in battery load
disconnect function. In addition, the versatile event controller can switch power to lamps and pumps on or off, depending on the program. Regulation can be switched between
series and shunt modes. Other features include backup
diesel generator control and the charging of a second
battery. This enables the regulation of wind turbines and
12 V, 24 V, 32 V, 36 V and 48 V (menu selectable)
Multifunctional LC display
Widely programmable charging characteristics
External current sensing (shunt)
Built-in 30-days data logger
Control of hybrid systems
Built-in programmable logic controller
PLI interface (optional)
small water turbines, also in hybrid systems. The LC display
shows battery voltage, charging current, ampere hours
(entering and leaving the battery), load current, and charge
status. External shunts can be connected to the PL.
Information is available about the past 30 days. With the
optional PLI interface, the user can access the charge
controller from a computer. Data can be read or settings
adjusted. The PL can be operated from 12, 24, 32, 36, or 48
volt systems and is thus appropriate for all PV applications.
