Blue Sky Energy
Sun Charger 30 with LVD
30A, 12V PWM Charge Controller
Blue Sky Energy?s Sun Charger 30 solar charge controller charges 12 volt batteries at up to 30 amps. This is the first "non-MPPT" controller from Blue Sky and was specifically designed for the budget minded customer looking for a quality product. The Sun Charger 30 uses precise PWM charge voltage control combined with a sophisticated 3-stage charge algorithm to optimally charge flooded, GEL or AGM lead-acid chemistry batteries. To periodically condition flooded lead-acid batteries the Sun Charger 30 will also perform a manual or automatic Equalization charge.
The built in low power LED digital display combines excellent readability with very low power consumption, includes an automatic night time diming feature and may be turned off completely if desired. The high accuracy display shows battery voltage, solar charge current, and computes total solar charge amp-hours produced.
Blue Sky controllers are recoginized as reliable, quality products in the solar industry. Each controller is ruggedly made with conformal coated electronics, anodized face plates and stainless steel fasteners that resist corrosion.
The LVD version of this controller adds a connector for the load drive signal to the rear connector area. Set-up items are added to the set-up menu for LVD - including on/off thresholds and lighting control timers. ** Please NOTE: The SC30-LVD does not drive the load directly but provides a relay drive signal to drive an external mechanical or solid state relay (not included) which then switches power to the load.
