Blocking Diode?

I am getting a Xantrex C35 and I am wondering when I hook my 60W panel to it will I be required to use a blocking diode?

Re: Blocking Diode?

Hi Max.  You do not need a blocking diode for this controller.  I am running a C-40 controller which is similar except for usage at 48 volts as compared to your C-35 which is for use with 12 or 24 volt systems.  When there is no sun, the controller simply goes to sleep, so to speak, and draws a minimal operating current.  I wish you good fortune. :-)  Jon C.
