Smartsolar Charge Controller


  • Ultra-fast Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT)
    Especially in case of a clouded sky, when light intensity is changing continuously, an ultra-fast
    MPPT controller will improve energy harvest by up to 30 % compared to PWM charge controllers
    and by up to 10 % compared to slower MPPT controllers.
  • Advanced Maximum Power Point Detection in case of partial shading conditions
    If partial shading occurs, two or more maximum power (MPP) points may be present on the
    power-voltage curve.
    Conventional MPPTs tend to lock to a local MPP, which may not be the optimum MPP.
    The innovative SmartSolar algorithm will always maximize energy harvest by locking to the
    optimum MPP.
  • Outstanding conversion efficiency
    No cooling fan. Maximum efficiency exceeds 99 %.
  • Flexible charge algorithm
    Fully programmable charge algorithm, and eight pre-programmed algorithms, selectable with a
    rotary switch (see manual for details).
  • Extensive electronic protection
    Over-temperature protection and power derating when temperature is high.
    PV short circuit and PV reverse polarity protection.
    PV reverse current protection.
  • Bluetooth Smart built-in
    The wireless solution to set-up, monitor, update and synchronise SmartSolar Charge Controllers.
  • Internal temperature sensor and optional external battery voltage, temperature and current
    sensing via Bluetooth
    A Smart Battery Sense, a BMV-712 Smart Battery Monitor or a SmartShunt can be used to
    communicate battery voltage and temperature (and current, in case of a BMV 712 or a
    SmartShunt) to one or more SmartSolar Charge Controllers.
  • VE.Direct or VE.Can
    For a wired data connection to a Color Control GX, other GX products, PC or other devices.
  • Synchronized parallel charging with VE.Can or Bluetooth
    Up to 25 units can be synchronized with VE.Can, and up to 10 units with Bluetooth.
  • Fully discharged battery recovery function
    Will initiate charging even if the battery has been discharged to zero volts.
    Will reconnect to a fully discharged Li-ion battery with integrated disconnect function.
  • VE.Can: the multiple controller solution
    Up to 25 units can be synchronised with VE.Can.
  • Remote on-off
    To connect for example to a VE.BUS BMS.
    Programmable relay
    Can be programmed to trip on an alarm,
    or other events.
  • Optional: SmartSolar pluggable LCD display
    Simply remove the rubber seal that protects
    the plug on the front of the controller,
    and plug-in the display.
