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
- Epoxy encapsulated and rated for outdoor use
- Designed using extremely efficient power electronics and is rated
for use in Class 1, Division 2 hazardous locations, making it an ideal
controller for solar powered oil/gas applications.
- 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.
Electronic Protections - Fully
protected against reverse polarity, short circuit, overcurrent,
lightning and transient surges, high temperature and reverse current at
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.
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.
- 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
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.
