BASED ON A PRESS RELEASE
Xantrex has added two new solar charge controllers designed for use with popular battery chemicals such as lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4).
The new 30A MPPT charge controller features dual bank output and advanced MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) technology to maximize energy harvest. The dual bank output function allows solar to charge and maintain the house and starter batteries. The batteries can have different chemical properties as long as they have the same nominal voltage, either 12 V or 24 V.
With an advanced multi-stage charging algorithm, the MPPT charge controller offers an industry leading energy conversion efficiency of 98%. The built-in LCD display offers easy programmability and real-time data about the solar system, including volts, amps, watts and watt-hours.
THE OTHER NEW CHARGE CONTROLLER is the entry-level 30A PWM charge controller with a flush-mounted industrial design for a clean, aesthetic finish. It also has a built-in LCD display that offers easy programmability and real-time data about the solar system.
Optional accessories including a battery temperature sensor and an MPPT remote control are now available. The list price for the 30A MPPT regulator (Part No. 710-3024-01) is $ 299. The list price for 30A PWM regulator (Part No. 709-3024-01) is $ 159.
Both charge controllers are in stock and ready for dispatch.
