Victron Energy Charge Controllers
Looking for proven, high-quality, easy-to-use, and technically-advanced solar charge controllers for your battery-based solar system? Victron Energy's line of Solar MPPT Charge Controllers are sure to please!
Victron Energy.Victron Energy knows their stuff when it comes to designing and making the components you need for independent energy production. They should! They've been at it since their founding in 1979. Since then Victron (based in Almere Haven, the Netherlands) has become a proven global leader in sophisticated, yet simple to use solar charge controllers and related equipment (like autotransformers, batteries, battery isolators and combiners, battery monitors, battery protectors, cables, chargers, DC-DC converters, DC distribution systems, inverters/MPPTs, isolation transformers, panels and system monitoring products, solar charge controllers, solar inverters and panels, and transfer switches). Whew.
BlueSolar MPPT & SmartSolar MPPT. The BlueSolar and SmartSolar MPPT solar charge controllers start with simple naming conventions. The first number in a model name is the maximum PV open circuit voltage. The second number is the maximum charge current. So for example, their MPPT 75/50 is a Victron charge controller with 75 Voc and 70 Isc. What is the difference between BlueSolar and SmartSolar models? They are exactly the same, except the SMART Solar has a Bluetooth chip built-in for communication with Victron's VictronConnect application--learn more at https://www.victronenergy.com/live/victronconnect:start.
Models. Victron Energy offers MPPT controller models in many, many capacity sizes (Voc and Isc) so if you don't see what you're looking for just ask!
Feature set. All Victron Energy MPPT controllers have robust feature sets, including "ultra-fast" MPPT, "Battery Life" intelligent battery management and temperature protection. Read more in the product pages below.
Communications. Victron Energy really excels when it comes to data and communications engineering. All their MPPT controllers (and other Victron Energy devices) are compatible with their "Control Control GX (CCGX)" visual interface device. Also, charge controller data is forwarded to Victron's VRM Online Portal for free data monitoring (via your mobile device).
