IPN-ProRemote Display Combines Full-Featured Charge Controller and Battery System Monitoring

The IPN-ProRemote combines full-featured charge controller monitoring and battery system monitoring into a single user friendly remote display. A bright crisp backlit LCD display with plain English language text and three simple front panel keys is extremely easy to use.
With the IPN-ProRemote you no longer have to guess how much battery capacity remains. A high accuracy calculation of remaining battery capacity compensates for a variety of factors including charge/discharge current, battery size, type, temperature* and how the battery was brought back to full charge. It even learns from past battery behavior to continuously improve accuracy!
The IPN-ProRemote also monitors and controls Blue Sky Energy’s IPN based charge controllers. It can monitor both the combined total and individual status of up to eight IPN charge controllers on a single IPN network. Depending on the particular charge controller model, certain additional parameters or settings can be accessed or modified with the IPN-ProRemote.
By combining an advanced battery system monitor and charge controller display into a single unit, the IPNProRemote eliminates the need for a separate battery monitor. It also simplifies installation and eliminates the headaches of trying to setup and synchronize separate charge controller and battery monitor systems.

What Is The IPN™ Network?

The Integrated Power Net™, or IPN network is a simple yet robust digital network which allows Blue Sky Energy’s IPN compatible products to communicate with each other and work together. It is based on the RS-485 communication standard which is commonly used in harsh industrial environments.

Without the IPN network multiple charge controllers charging a common battery would operate as separate machines, each with their own charge parameters, display, temperature sensor and so on. While IPN compatible charge controllers work quite well alone, when multiple IPN controllers are combined they no longer behave as separate machines. They work together and operate as a single machine. Up to 8 IPN compatible controllers can reside on a single network. No special communication hardware is required. There is simply a twisted pair cable daisy chained controller-to-controller. One controller is considered to be the master and the others are slaves. Charge parameters are set only in the master, and the slaves automatically take on these settings and work with the master to behave as a single machine. They can also share a common battery temperature sensor and display, either the IPN-Pro Remote or the very low cost IPN-Remote.

Lower installed cost, simplified setup and coordinated charge control are obvious advantages of the IPN network. Another key advantage is the ability to grow a system as needs change. A small system may start with a Solar Boost 3024i, an IPN-ProRemote and a battery temperature sensor. Later when more power is required another Solar Boost 3024i (or other IPN compatible charge controller) can be added. To the installer there is no need to consider the new controller’s charge parameters, or add additional displays or temperature sensors. If settings need to be changed they still reside in one place as before. To the user the system operates the same, displays through the existing IPN-ProRemote, only now the system delivers twice the power.

IPN based systems offer the best in high performance charge control, full featured monitoring and easy expandability. Get an IPN based charge controller and IPN-ProRemote for your next solar system!
