Sunkeeper™ Solar Controllers
Cat. No. SK-6
Weight 1 lbs

Morningstar's SunKeeper solar controller, rated for 6 amp or 12 amp at 12VDC, provides a low cost regulated output directly from the solar module to maximize battery life in small solar power applications:
  • Epoxy encapsulated and rated for outdoor use
  • Designed using extremely efficient power electronics and is rated to 70°C
  • Certified for use in Class 1, Division 2 hazardous locations, making it an ideal controller for solar powered oil/gas applications.

High Reliability - Rated to 70°C to operate in high temperatures at the solar module.
More reliable than controllers mounted inside the junction box. Uses very low on-resistance power MOSFET's. No need to re-rate.

Outdoor Rated - ETL approved for outdoor use without an additional enclosure.  Rugged
IP65, UV resistant case. Epoxy encapsulated printed circuit board and watertight connection to the module junction box.

Extensive Electronic Protections - Fully protected against reverse polarity, short circuit, overcurrent, lightning and transient surges, high temperature and reverse current at night.

  Longer Battery Life - Series PWM with 3 stage charging: bulk, PWM regulation and float.
Includes temperature compensation at the controller or alternatively at the battery when using optional remote temperature sensor.  Able to charge a zero voltage battery.

 Rated for Hazardous Locations - Specifically designed for solar power systems in the oil/gas industry.  Approved for use in Class 1, Division 2, Groups A,B,C,D.

More Information - Bi-color LED is easy to read from the ground when the solar module
is pole-mounted. Indicates solar charging, regulation, normal nighttime operation and any controller or system faults.

 Easy to Install - Fits standard half inch conduit knockout (PG 13.5, M20) in module
junction box. Quickly fastens with included locknut. Wires have fork connectors for easy connection to solar module terminals.
