Charge controller C-40 is ideal for solar battery charging. You can use this Solar PV Panel and Solar Module Charge Controller and lighting Controller for your 12, 24 and 48 VDC battery charging systems. Regulate your batteries voltage to not over charge and over dis-charge keeping your batteries voltage in optimum range to power your electrical and lighting loads. The C-40 is rated up to 40 amps at the 12 VDC setting.
Charge controller Trace C40 can be used as a PV charge control, DC load control or DC diversion regulator in 12, 24, and 48 volt systems. The C-40 can operate in only one mode at a time. To provide both Solar PV charge control and low battery load disconnect, two controls must be used. Order the temperature sensor for accurate battery charge control if you are in a cold or hot climate.
Charge controller C40 has field adjustable bulk and float set points and perform automatic equalization every 30 days to help maintain your battery, or battery bank.
A solar DC load control the C40 disconnect the load at a user settable low voltage and reconnect at the low voltage reconnect point.
Used as a diversion controller they send excess power to a "dummy pad" such as a water or space heater to regulate hydroelectric or wind generators.
Chose the optional LCD Digital Display shows battery voltage, array amps and watts, cumulative amp-hours and a separately re-settable "trip" amp-hour measurement. The digital display is available for mounting on the front of the charge control, or with a 50 to 100 foot cable for remote mounting in a double-gang electrical box. This is a terrific charge controller proven in the field and reliable.
