 I'm using a trace C40 controller so I don't need to use diodes on paniels but decided not to remove them. How does this affect my output? Is there any loss? Thanks Ernie

Re: diodes

Ernie..diodes are just check valves...allowing current to only pass one way...they have a high resistance in one dirction and very little resistance in the other...

Yes you do loose a little voltage - depending on diodes type.. (0.5, 1 or even 2 volts)
