solar controller

This solar controller prevents harmful overcharging by adjusting the power generated by a solar panel before it reaches your RV batteries. It uses maximum power point tracking technology to compare solar output to battery voltage and converts that output to an optimal amperage. Typically, this type of technology is a good fit for larger systems with higher voltages.


Automatic Multistage Charging System

Using a multistage charging system, the controller automatically switches voltages while the battery bank charges. This accelerates the charge, but also helps extend battery life by adjusting the voltage during the different modes. The controller is compatible with multiple battery types and includes preset charging profiles for lithium, sealed, gel, and flooded/wet cell batteries.


Charging Modes

  1. Bulk: This mode charges at the full rated load for a quicker recharge time. As the name suggests, this is where the bulk of the charging happens. It typically charges the battery to at least 80% capacity.
  2. Absorption: This mode provides controlled voltage to ensure a full charge. Once the battery reaches between 80% to 90% capacity, the absorption state will kick in and start charging at a regulated voltage. In each charging profile, this mode is set to last for 30 minutes after the bulk charge is completed.
  3. Float: Once the battery reaches full charge, this mode maintains a lower voltage to compensate for self-discharge. This reduces battery stress and minimizes gassing and water loss.
  4. Equalization: On flooded/wet cell batteries, this mode activates to prevent stratification and sulfate buildup during extended float cycles. These two issues can damage a battery by causing the accumulation of acid at the bottom of the battery and hardened sulfate crystals on the battery plates. This mode is especially helpful when your battery is going unused during storage.

Practical, Convenient Features

This solar controller is built with parallel capability that lets you add another 60-amp MPPT controller to double your output capacity. This is useful if you expand your solar charging system with additional panels to generate more amperage.


Additionally, the controller includes several built-in safety features to help protect your equipment. The charging process will shut down if the controller starts to overheat and when an overcurrent is detected. Also, if the battery or solar panel is wired incorrectly, it activates a reverse polarity alarm.


How It Installs

The solar controller vertically mounts to a wall near the battery compartment. It is wired to the solar panel using MC4 cables. Then, the battery bank is wired to the terminals on the controller. You can also install a fuse or circuit breaker (sold separately) up to 60 amps between the solar controller and battery for additional current protection.


Available Accessories

remote

The optional fixed-mount remote (sold separately) lets you monitor and control the MPPT solar controller from inside your RV. It shows the charging current, battery voltage, and battery state of charge. It allows you to input your battery type and choose a charging profile. The remote also lets you use Maximum Power Boost Technology. You can simply press a button to activate Bulk mode for the highest charging voltage. This lets you quickly top off your battery bank before the end of the day by capturing as much power as possible.


bluetooth

Additionally, a Bluetooth dongle lets you monitor the controller's settings and data from your smartphone or tablet using the Go Power Connect app. It is compatible with iOS and Android devices.

no fault of etrailer.com, but instead 100% the GO Power MPPT product,
seems there is a broad range of specifications WITHIN "their PUBLISHED specifications".
the MPPT states capable of 150 voc (this is still on their pdf however it is only a SURGE rating not a REAL RATING) then their fine print states "100 voc dc" (see link below "for proof" (this is a wide range by dropping 50 voc dc) and array power limited to 1040watts (as stated on my original pdf from Go Power) at 12 vdc on before limiting occurs. So a SIX panel array of 100 watts each with a volt open of 22.5volts in series .....means 6X22.5= 135 voc.(should be good to go right)..can't do it.... so a max of 6 panels 6x22.5vdc VOC = 135 voc dc BUT can't do it ...blows the unit apart.....and needs warranty repair.....which I did....so it will not handle THEIR RATED SPECIFICATIONS! you will need to be AT 100voc on your design specs which is not stated anywhere
which states a MAXIMUM of 100 voc so that's only 4 100watt panels at 22.5 voc dc which of course is only 400 watts input power that this unit will handle... I'd challenge you to double check and triple check ALL OF YOUR PANEL specs before purchasing this unit as I've wrapped my brain around it and don't see how ANY modern PANELS will not achieve MORE POWER than this MPPT charger will handle unless your on 48V ONLY system..
to be short and simple I looked at perfectly matching 4 of these panels from reynogy for 200 watts each and guess what they have a VOC rating of 27 voc each so in series they are 108 voc so that should work due to being in a real world solution near 100 voc rating of this MPPT controller as most panels never really achieve 100% power in the real world....
Before dealing with me on tech support this MPPT controller was rated at 1040 watts ON THEIR PDF ... once I proved to them that IT WOULD NEVER ALLOW IT.... now their tech support documents state 800 watts and in reality it might be able to handle 800 watts (IF PERFECTLY MATCHED PANELS ARE INSTALLED) but I wouldn't rely on it..I changed out the controller to a victron controller and I keep this one because I can't return it and I might want to ADD portable solar panels some day which I AM SURE it will handle.

  • GoPower 60 Amp Solar Controller Temperature Control
    Lithium batteries are extremely sensitive to temperature both high and low. This is especially true while charging. Temps too low or high will cause permanent damage to lithium batteries. The Go Power MPPT Solar Charge Controller - LCD Digital Display - 60 Amp item # GP54FR offers no battery temperature control while charging. That's what the attached picture is referencing. It only offers overheating protection if the charger itself gets too hot while connected to you RV battery.

  • Can A PWM Solar Charge Controller Be Swapped Out With An MPPT Solar Charge Controller
    Yes, once you start getting into the 150w to 200w or higher range MPPT solar charge controllers are up to 30% more efficient than a PWM controller. Anything under 150w you're fine to just save your money and stick with a PWM controller as you'll see no added benefits from an MPPT. Since the Go Power Weekender ISW RV Solar Charging System # 34282183 you referenced is 190w you'll see an increased efficiency in the system when used with the Go Power MPPT Solar Charge Controller # GP54FR....

  • Solar Charge Controller Needed For A 600 Watt Go Power Solar Flex Solar Power System
    To determine the correct rated solar charge controller for your system you'll need to divide the wattage coming in from your panels (in this case 600watts if you added the sixth panel) by the voltage of your battery bank and add another 25% for unexpected energy surges. If you run your batteries in parallel the voltage will remain the same but if you run them in series the voltage will increase the voltage (i.e. two 6v batteries in series would be 12v). So for example 600watts / 12v = 50...
