Product Information

Victron's Smart Solar MPPT charge controllers are the latest in their world class range. Smart Solar is the first to have bluetooth built-in, allowing you full access to the performance and settings of the controller, without an additional bluetooth dongle. Smart Solar charge controllers are also the first Victron products to have an optional LCD display and control interface. To fit the display option, you just need to remove the rubber seal and plug in the display.

Optional: pluggable LCD display
Simply remove the rubber seal that protects the plug on the front of the controller, and plug-in the display.

Ultra-fast Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT)
Especially in case of a clouded sky, when light intensity is changing continuously, an ultra-fast MPPT controller will improve energy harvest by up to 30% compared to PWM charge controllers and by up to 10% compared to slower MPPT controllers.

Advanced Maximum Power Point Detection in case of partial shading conditions
If partial shading occurs, two or more maximum power points may be present on the power-voltage curve. Conventional MPPTs tend to lock to a local MPP, which may not be the optimum MPP. The innovative SmartSolar algorithm will always maximize energy harvest by locking to the optimum MPP.

Outstanding conversion efficiency
No cooling fan. Maximum efficiency exceeds 98%.

Flexible charge algorithm
Fully programmable charge algorithm, and eight pre-programmed algorithms, selectable with a rotary switch.

Extensive electronic protection
Over-temperature protection and power derating when temperature is high. PV short circuit and PV reverse polarity protection. PV reverse current protection.

Internal temperature sensor
Compensates absorption and float charge voltage for temperature.

Bluetooth Smart built-in: dongle not needed
The wireless solution to set-up, monitor and update the controller using Apple and Android smartphones, tablets or other devices.

For a wired data connection to a Color Control panel, PC or other devices

Remote on-off
To connect for example to a VE.BUS BMS.

Programmable relay
Can be programmed (with a smartphone) to trip on an alarm, or other events.
