Renogy Rover 60 Amp MPPT Solar Charge Controller
Find your freedom with Renogy's 60A MPPT Charge Controller. With a solid aluminum frame, heat dissipation fin, and open-circuit voltage of 30V, this controller is ideal for a RV or solar lighting and communication system. Renogy's 60A MPPT Charge Controller is built with protections against reverse polarity, short-circuiting, overheating, and more. Its built-in app can be used in remote monitoring and control of the system to ensure uninterrupted use.
The Rover automatically detects 12V/24V/36V/48V DC system voltages and is ETL listed to UL1741 and CSA C22.2. It supports Deep Cycle Sealed, Gel, Flooded, and Lithium battery options. Renogy's innovative MPPT technology enables high tracking efficiency up to 99 percent and peak conversion efficiency of 98 percent. The Rover features diverse load control and also is capable of charging over-discharged lithium batteries.
The LCD screen and multiple LED indicators displaying system operation information, customizable parameters, and error codes. And the RS232 port allows the Rover to communicate with the BT-2 Bluetooth module, which can pair with the Renogy BT smartphone app.
With an MPPT controller, rather than regulating voltage, it actually behaves as a DC voltage converter. By doing this it essentially acts as a power regulator. This allows the controller to accept any input of power (within its voltage/current range) and convert it to the appropriate voltage for the battery bank. DC voltage converters typically have an efficiency above 90%, depending on the level at which the converter is run. Depending on the input, the efficiency can actually range from 90 to 99 percent. The output current of an MPPT controller will always produce more current flow to the battery than a PWM controller will. Since we know on average that the PWM controllers have an average efficiency of around 79 percent (max) and MPPT has an average efficiency of 94 percent, an MPPT will produce a current of about 1.2 that of the array current or 20 percent higher than the array. it maintains a higher efficiency and boosts the array current to more quickly charge the battery rather than wasting energy as heat. In addition, MPPT controller typically supports a higher voltage input which allows for the wiring of the panels in series. This can be advantageous in systems with long panel to-controller wire runs as it will overcome voltage losses in the wiring. MPPT controllers attempt to ensure maximum power conversion and for that reason are typically used in critical power applications and are essential for bigger systems. 500W solar power systems and more should use an MPPT charge controller.
Renogy’s Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) controllers maximize the production output of your solar system. Rather than dissipating excess energy as heat, an MPPT controller monitors and regulates your system’s current. While this typically means a lower voltage yield, your overall output will increase as a result of current management and you can expect efficiency ratings of 90 percent or higher.
