What is TBB solar charge controller?
Solar Mate is a solar charge controller with built in MPPT(Maximum Power Point Tracking) technology, which enables them to increase the output from a PV(solar photovoltaic) array by as much as 30% compared with non-MPPT designs.
Solar Mate can optimize the PV's output and eliminate the fluctuation due to shading or temperature variables. It is a multi-voltage MPPT with built in sophisticated battery charging algorithm for both lead acid battery or lithium-ion battery, of which could support a wide variety of system designs. Meanwhile, the data management with 365 days of history record can tell user actual performance of its system.
Thanks to its self cooling design, it is suitable for most rugged environment with dust or bugs. All range products can operate at their full rating in ambient temperatures as high as 40ºC.
What are TBB solar charge controllers' advantages:
- MPPT conversion efficiency 99.9%
- No power derating for continuous output.
- Wide MPPT operating voltage range from 50V to 250V
- Up to 8 units in parallel.
- 12V/24V/48V battery system automatic recognition.
- TBB premium multiple stages charging for lead acid batteries.
- Low self consumption
- Data logging 365 days
