Sunware FOX-220 12/24V 20A Solar Charge Regulator (with night light)
The FOX-220 is a solar charge controller for modulated currents up to 20 A, suitable for AGM, gel and lead acid batteries. Consumers can be connected up to a current consumption of 20 A maximum. The adaptive total discharge protection monitors and protects the battery against damaging total discharge, and alternatively the nightlight function can be used. When using the nightlight function, a consumer will be switched on during the time the modules do not supply charge current (i.e. when it is dark). Ideal for the operation of an orientation light or small lights for the prevention of break-ins.
The optimised charge characteristic curve in combination with the hardware PWM control achieves a distinctly faster and gentler charging of the battery; hazardous gassing or overcharging are safely prevented.
On switching on, the controller recognises fully automatically whether a 12 V or 24 V battery system is connected. The active battery cut-out ensures the protection against reverse current and allows for an extremely low voltage drop between module and battery.
The charge controller can be operated in parallel to other charging devices (such as alternators, generators, fuel cells).
Modules of all manufacturers can be connected to the controller, the no-load voltage of the solar modules must be lower than 50 V (see type plate of the module).
The LEDs at the front of the controller give information on the charging state of the battery, status of the consumer connection and whether a charge current is flowing from the modules or whether the battery is fully charged.
