Rugged Charger

Used in the trucking industry to charge refrigeration unit batteries by using extra power from truck lighting wire harness, this extends the battery life and ensures the batteries are ready for use at all times. These controllers are pre-set to charge lead acid or gel cell batteries with Constant Voltage Regulation to your required voltage. They can run electronics directly from a solar module without a battery.

Solar 20W & 50W

Efficient Design – our latest innovation; automatic nighttime shutdown with an intelligent design results in the controller using < 1/10 th the power of the industry average. Other controls, which have a standby current draw, will drain the battery over the winter with no solar input, reducing the freeze protection of the battery.

Solar 6 Amp

Efficient Design – our latest innovation; automatic nighttime shutdown with an intelligent design results in the controller using < 1/10 th the power of the industry average. The control also prevents power loss back into the solar modules at night, so an external blocking diode is not required. This high performance solar charge controller increases battery life by preventing overcharging.

Voltage Switches

Excessive discharge reduces battery life, can cause equipment to malfunction and can cause batteries to freeze and crack at low temperatures. Voltage Controlled Switches These high performance low voltage disconnects increase battery life by preventing excessive battery discharge. When the battery voltage is too low the control automatically switches the load off. When the battery voltage has recovered the control turns the load back on.
