Solar Module Array Battery Charging and Solar PV Panel Battery Voltage Regulator Xantrex Model: XW-MPPT80-600
This excellent MPPT Charge-Controller can accommodate open circuit voltages up to 600 VDC, which reduces wiring needs, increases module selection and string sizing flexibility, and enables greater distance between power source and battery bank. The MPPT PV array input window is 195 to 550 VDC, which supports an output of up to 80A for 24 or 48 VDC battery banks.
The Xantrex XW MPPT80-600 regulates the battery voltage and output current based on the amount of energy available from the PV array and the present state-of-charge of the battery. Standby and night time power draw is less than one watt.
The charge controller has a configurable auxiliary output to drive a load control relay or to activate devices such as vent fans or indicator alarms. Full output power of 4,800W is available without de-rating in ambient temperatures up to 113ºF (45ºC). Over-temperature protection de-rates the power throughout when ambient temperatures are higher. The XW MPPT80-600 also feature protections for input over/under voltage, otput over current, and back-feed (reverse current). Built-in ground fault protection (GFP) eliminates the need for a separate GFP breaker. This unit is configurable for positive, negative, and ungrounded PV systems.
The XW MPPT 80-600 can be used with the XW inverters and power distribution panel, or stand-alone in other PV systems with a SqD HU361RB 600 VDC array disconnect. For two strings, wire both poles of the disconnect into the controller terminals. Use a 100A breaker on the battery side of the control.
A battery temperature sensor is included with the controller. The XW MPPT80-600 is compatible with the Xanbus-enabled devices, such as the XW Series inverter/charger, the System Control Panel (SCP), XW Automatic Generator Start (XW-AGS), and other Schneider Electric Xantrex XW solar charge controllers through the Xanbus network. It can also be installed in a stand-alone mode with XW System Control Panel XW SCP.
XW MPPT80-600 dimensions are 30"H x 8.63"W x 8.63"D, weight is 29.8 lbs and it is covered by a 5-year warranty. with an optional extension to 10-years. Listed to UL 1741 and CSA 107.1 for the U.S. and Canada.
