A new multi power point tracking (MPPT) charge controller designed to give caravan, motorhome and boat owners up to 20% more energy per day from their existing solar panels has been launched by Solar Technology International.
The PV Logic MPPT Pro is a compact, 15 amp solar charge controller with unique single or dual battery charging capabilities. The device can increase the charging capability of any 12V or 24V solar panel (up to 220W) by as much as 20% per day through its ability to map the voltage from the solar panel to suit the condition of the battery.
With built in Bluetooth technology, the MPPT comes with free Apple and Android apps to provide access to charging data via a mobile phone. The simple-to-read dashboard clearly displays the live solar panel charging status and the charging current/voltage in the connected batteries.
The app also features three pre-set programmes for sealed, gel and flooded batteries plus a fully customisable profile for other battery types.
Created specifically for the MPPT Pro, an additional Activity Monitor can be attached to the controller through a 5m link cable to display PV performance. This gives users all the information they require at a glance without needing to access the data via the app.
“The MPPT Pro is a great addition to our PV Logic range,” explains Adrian Williams, Managing Director of Solar Technology International. “We are seeing more and more caravan, motorhome and boat owners take advantage of the benefits solar energy to power equipment. The addition of the MPPT Pro means they can gain extra power with just one simple to use, compact device.”
Adrian added: “By including Bluetooth connectivity and a free app on both Apple and Android platforms, users can keep track of the charging status of their solar panels and batteries via their phones.”
