Schneider Electric C-35, C-40 and C-60 PWM Controllers
The Schneider ElectricC-35, C-40, and C-60 PWM (pulse width modulator)
controllers can be used as PV charge controllers, DC load controllers
or DC diversion regulators in 12-, 24- and 48-volt systems (except only
the C40 can be used in 48-volt systems). They operate in only one mode
at a time, so to provide both PV charge controller and low battery load
disconnect, two controllers must be used.
As DC load controllers they disconnect the load at a user-settable low
voltage and reconnect at a higher voltage reconnect point. As diversion
controllers they send excess power to a “dummy load” (such as a water
or space heater) to regulate hydroelectric or wind generators. When
used in diversion mode, derate the amperage by 25%. All Xantrex
controllers, when used as a charge controller, have field-adjustable
bulk and float setpoints and perform automatic equalization every 30
days or whenever LVD is reached. Equalization can be manually initiated
with automatic shut-off. Order the optional temperature sensor for a
more accurate battery charge controller.
The optional LCD digital display shows battery voltage, array amps and
watts, cumulative amp-hours and a separately resettable “trip” amp-hour
measurement. The digital display is available for mounting on the front
of the charge controller, or with a 50- or 100-foot cable for remote
mounting in a double-gang electrical box.
