The C40 has long been the mainstay of the solar charge controller line-up, its versatility and reliability have made it an industry standard.
Now the C40 is a fully solid state, microprocessor-driven controller, UL and cUL listed.
C Series controllers may be configured for PV battery charging, or DC load control or DC diversion operation.
When used as a load controller, the C Series (C40) will automatically turn a DC load on or off at predetermined battery voltage settings.
Both LVD (low voltage disconnect) and LVR (low voltage reconnect) set points are user adjustable.
Features: DC Diversion Mode Temperature Compensation Silent, pulse width modulated (PWM), high efficiency operation.
Three-stage battery charging (bulk, absorption, and float).
Automatic overload protection in both active and passive modes.
PV array short circuit and reverse polarity protection.
Voltage configurations: 12, 24, 48 Vdc Max.
