  • Description

    The most efficient, high-yield battery charging technology available, at a price normally associated with PWM designs.

    In any PV/solar energy system with energy storage, performance is dependent on the batteries, and the batteries in turn entirely depend on the charge controller for charging efficiency and longevity. SmartHarvest makes it possible for a wider range of PV solar electricity systems to take full advantage of premium Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) charging technology with the SCCM20-100—MPPT, for the price of the usual Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) style products generally found in smaller-scale systems.

    The SmartHarvest SCCM20-100 improves system economics in several ways. It is designed for installation and set-up simplicity, reducing labor time in the field. By maximizing solar energy harvesting under a wider variety of environmental conditions, MPPT technology helps the system extract as much electricity as possible for more effective energy storage. It is ideal for use in a wide-range of residential, light commercial, agricultural, community and other applications that can benefit from better yields through more advanced charge controller technology.
