A solar charger gathers energy from your solar panels, and stores it in your batteries. Using the latest, fastest technology, SmartSolar maximizes this energy-harvest, driving it intelligently to achieve full charge in the shortest possible time. SmartSolar maintains battery health, extending its life.
Bluetooth Smart built-in: dongle not needed- The wireless solution to set-up, monitor and update the controller using Apple and Android smartphones, tablets or other devices.
VE.Direct- For a wired data connection to a Color Control GX, other GX products, PC or other devices
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 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 BlueSolar 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 (see the software page on our website), and eight pre-programmed algorithms, selectable with a rotary switch (see manual for details).
Programming, real-time data and history display options- Modern Apple and Android smartphones, tablets, macbooks and other devices: see the VE.Direct Bluetooth Smart dongle and the MPPT app discovery sheet for screenshots.
Programmable relay- Can be programmed (a.o. with a smartphone) to trip on an alarm, or other events.
Optional: pluggable LCD display- Simply remove the rubber seal that protects the plug on the front of the controller, and plug-in the display.
Remote on-off- To connect for example to a VE.BUS BMS.
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.
Internal temperature sensor- Compensates absorption and float charge voltage for temperature.

|1a) If more PV power is connected, the controller will limit input power.|
|1b) The PV voltage must exceed Vbat + 5V for the controller to start. Thereafter the minimum PV voltage is Vbat + 1V.|
|2) A PV array with a higher short circuit current may damage the controller.|
|3) MC4 models: several splitter pairs may be needed to parallel the strings of solar panels|
