12V/30A 400W MPPT solar charge controller
12V/22A 290W MPPT controller with 60 cell modules.
Blue Sky Energy's new Solar BoostTM 3000i solar
charge controller charges 12V batteries at up to
30 amps from conventional 36 cell 12V PV modules.
Patented MPPT technology operates the modules electrically
in a manner that harvests all available PV power
and can increase charge current up to 30% or more
compared to conventional PWM type controllers.
voltage step-down operation of the MPPT power converter
also allows use of higher voltage lower cost 60
cell grid-tie PV modules at up to 22 amps of output
current. The process of converting the much higher
60 cell input voltage down to battery voltage may
produce a charge current increase approaching 200%.
Boost 3000i's sophisticated 3-stage charge control
plus auto/ manual equalization optimally charges
flooded, GEL and AGM lead-acid chemistry batteries.
A user configurable auxiliary output is also provided
which can serve as either a 20 amp LVD load controller,
20 amp lighting controller with LVD, or 2 amp auxiliary
battery charger for a second battery such as the
engine start battery in an RV.
low power LED display combines excellent readability
with very low power consumption, includes an automatic
night time dimming feature and may be turned off
completely if desired. The high accuracy display
shows battery voltage, input and output current,
auxiliary battery voltage, and computes total solar
charge amp-hours produced. To provide optimal charge
control for various battery types all digital setpoints
for charge control and load control are user adjustable.
Boost 3000i may also operate as an IPN Network Master
controlling up to 7 remote Blue Sky Energy IPN compatible
charge controllers such as the SB3024iL.
Blue Sky Energy's IPN Network allows multiple charge
controllers to communicate with each other and coordinate
their activities to charge the battery as a single
coordinated charging machine. All networked controllers
display through the SB3000i's digital display and
may share a battery temperature sensor, IPN-ProRemote
display for high accuracy battery system monitoring,
or Universal Communication Module (UCM) for remote
access over the Internet.
