C12 Charge Controller
12 Amps

    The C12's field configurability and feature packed design makes it the only small PV controller you need!

    C12 Charge ControllerPhotovoltaic Charge Controller

    • Silent, solid state, series pulse width modulated (PWM) charge control with 3-stage (bulk, absorb, & float).
    • Field adjustable setpoints with removable knobs to reduce tampering (bulk range: 13.0 to 17.0 VDC).
    • Electronic short circuit, overload, overtemperature and reverse polarity protection improves reliability.
    • Automatic reset of overload protection system--eliminates problems of tripped breakers and blown fuses.
    • High efficiency, "No diode" design without electronics in the negative conductors (as per NEC code).
    • Optional plug-in/replaceable temperature compensation sensor --ideal for sealed batteries.
    • Continous rating of 12 amps @ 113°F /45°C and 8 amps @ 150°F/65°C for severe environments.
    • Designed for 15 amps of short-circuit PV array current (typically about four 50 watt modules).
    • Two stage lightning and surge suppression through both active and passive protection components.
    • Equalize mode (@ bulk+1DC for 2 hours) with automatic activation every 30 days or if LVD is reached (defeatable).


    DC Load Controller


    • Automatic low voltage disconnect (LVD) with adjustable setpoint (LVD range 10.5 to 12.5 VDC).
    • Automatic low voltage reconnect (LVR) with adjustable setpoint (LVR range 12.0 to 14.0 VDC)
    • Selectable automatic or manuals reconnection of loads after low voltage disconnect accurs.
    • Electronic short-circuit, overload, overtemperature and reverse polarity protection improves reliability.
    • Continous rating of 12 amps @ 113°F /45°C and 8 amps @ 150°F/65°C for severe environments.
    • Low voltage disconnect warning system--blinks loads on-off-on when the battery voltage is below the low voltage disconnect setting after a two minute delay. Loads are then disconnected after a 5 minute additional time delay unless loads have been reduced and voltage has risen above the low voltage disconnect setpoint.
    • Manual reset switch on bottom of enclosure allows one-time 10 minute grace period for operation of DC loads after reset has accurred. Additional pushes have no effect until voltage reaches the low voltage reconnect setting.

    Automatic Lighting Controller

    • Automatic control of lighting systems with nighttime detection by using the PV array as a photocell.
    • Adjustable run duration from 2 to 8 hours or "dusk to dawn" all night operation of lights, unless LVD is reached.
    • Electronic short-circuit, overload, overtemperature and reverse polarity protection improves reliability.
    • Continous rating of 12 amps @ 113°F /45°C and 8 amps @ 150°F/65°C for severe environments.
    • Manual reset switch on bottom of enclosure allows testing of lights during daytime or after LVD has accured.

    Applications:

    • Village Power
    • Cabin/Vacation Homes
    • Outdoor Area Lighting
    • Sign Lighting
    • Bus Shelters
    • Telecommunication.

    Size:

    • 605" H x 4.3" W x 1.5" D
    • 16.5 cm x 11 cm x 4 cm

Good controller, but much room for improvement.

by

When I first recieved this controller, I wanted to wire it up to run some outdoor lighting at night. I already had a Xantrex C35 charging my battery bank with a 100 watt panel. This controller would have a smaller 15 watt panel connected to it. Wiring the C12 was a pain. The small holes youre su...

RV battery charging

by

I have this unit wired to 45 watts of solar panels. I use this system to keep six deep cycle batteries charged on 2 RVs that get used every 4-6 weeks. Every time I have used the RV the batteries were about 12.8 volts. During a weekend usage I rarely have to start a generator unless I need the A/C...
