The technology for Ecco Solar Charge Controller has advanced dramatically over the past five years. The most exciting new technology, Pulse Width Modulation (PWM, has become very popular. The solar charge controller is needed in all solar power systems that charge batteries. The job of the solar charge controller is to regulate the power going from the solar panels to the batteries. More modern charge controllers use Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) to slowly lower the amount of power applied to the batteries as the batteries get closer and closer to fully charged.
Ecco Solar Charge Controller 50A – 12V/24V
A 12v battery charge controllers voltage from the solar panel to the charge controller is around 18v. Using an MPPT controller allows much higher voltages from the panels to the solar charge controller. The MPPT controller converts the excess voltage into additional amps. Higher voltage from the solar panels to the charge controller is reduced power loss.
The final function of modern solar charge controllers is preventing reverse-current flow. You’ve worked hard all day using solar power to charge the batteries; you don’t want to waste all that power!
