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.

Ask the Experts about this Go Power Solar Charge Controllers

  • Go Power Solar Controller That is Compatible With Lithium Batteries
    There isn't a setting you can use on your Go Power solar controller for lithium batteries if it is not compatible, so you will need to upgrade your solar controller to one that is compatible. I'm not sure which solar power system you currently have, so I'll list out the options for solar controllers from Go Power, and each of these are compatible with lithium batteries. - 10 Amp: Go Power PWM Solar Charge Controller with USB Port - LCD Digital Display - 12V # 34280503 - 20 Amp:...

  • Is There Advantage to Upgrading Go Power Elite Solar System to MPPT Controller
    You can upgrade the GO Power Elite part # 34282184 with the MPPT controller # GP54FR and Bluetooth dongle part # GP94FR which gives ability to monitor the system from your phone. MPPT controllers do give better charging returns as the voltage of the charge increases. So if you upgraded to the MPPT you'd see a slight bump in charging speed and quality plus you'd be able to monitor it with your phone.

  • MPPT Solar Charge Controller Recommendations
    Let's see if we can break this down some, several questions here that I am not certain I can answer completely, part of this is opinion on how to set-up and not necessarily best practice choices or hard technical/qualitative information you are asking. I have linked the page that has the MPPT controllers we carry, but to make a recommendation to you is challenging as I do not know what the charge rating is you are looking for and what expansion options you are looking at for the future....

  • Solar Panel Controller that Can Handle Two 190 Watt Solar Panels
    The controller you have now can only accept up to 190 watts of power so you will need a new one. We have the Go Power MPPT Solar Charge Controller # GP54FR which can handle the wattage you'll have. This can handle 12V up to 800 watts, 24V up to 1,600 watts, 36V up to 2,400 watts, and 48V up to 3,200 watts.

  • Does the Go Power Remote Continue to Allow the Inverter to Draw Power After Turned Off
    The Remote for Go Power Pure Sine Wave Inverters part # 34266886 for the Go Power Industrial Pure Sine Wave Inverter part # 34279948 will allow you to completely shut off the inverter eliminating any power draw. If you are using a solar controller like the Go Power MPPT Solar Charge Controller part # GP54FR or something similar which is recommended the controller will draw a very minimal amount of power to show charge levels and status of the battery or batteries.
