The Xantrex XW Solar Charge Controller (XW SCC) is a photovoltaic (PV) charge controller that tracks the electrical maximum power point of a PV array to deliver the maximum available current for charging batteries. When charging, the XW SCC regulates battery voltage and output current based on the amount of energy available from the PV array and state-of-charge of the battery.
The XW SCC can be used with 12, 24, 36, 48, and 60-volt DC battery systems and is able to charge a lower nominal-voltage battery from a higher nominal-voltage array. For example, the XW SCC can charge a 12-volt battery from a 36-volt array. This provides flexibility for installers to use longer wiring runs without compromising efficiency. The XW Solar Charge Controller can be installed (in single or multi-unit configurations) with Xantrex XW Hybrid Inverter/Charger(s) or can be used in other solar energy systems where a solar charge controller is needed.
The Xantrex XW Solar Charge Controller incorporates a dynamic Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) algorithm designed to maximize energy harvest from the PV array. The MPPT constantly adjusts the operating points of the array to ensure it stays on the maximum power point. It does not stop energy harvest to sweep the array like some other competing products. This feature is beneficial all sunlight conditions, especially
in areas with fast moving cloud cover and quickly changing solar conditions.

Specifications subject to change without notice.
Mine began malfunctioning after less than a year of use in my jungle location, but Xantrex (Shneider) replaced it under warranty. I really like the charge controller, and the menus and manual were helpful and not too difficult to figure out. Getting

Works like a charm,very little baby sitting.rnOnce set up ,Provides massive ammounts of data via front screen and over xanbuss network
Great charge controller, has built in MPPT technology and data logging capabilities. Nice upgrade from a PWM charge controller with a 10-15% increase in power harvested, especially in winter months.
