Victron BlueSolar 45A MPPT Charge Controller 150/45 (12/24/48V)
Victron's BlueSolar 150/45 MPPT charge controller will optimise the charging current from larger solar arrays up to 2600W (1300W at 24V, 650W at 12V). The latest MPPT algorithms developed by Victron allow adjustments to be made much more quickly. Rapidly adapting to changing conditions means that the Victron MPPT 150/45 can produce up to 10% more than standard MPPT controllers.
One of the biggest problems in off-grid solar installations is partial shading. When this happens, there might be more than one maximum power point for the shaded array. Standard MPPT controllers tend to use only one power point, but the Victron MPPT algorithm is able to shift the power point according to the conditions. Partial shading of the solar panels will never be completely eliminated, but Victron MPPT controllers make the best of a bad situation.
To improve reliability, the Victron MPPT 150/45 is fitted with advanced 'fan-less' cooling and housed in a robust case. For optimum charging, there are also 8 different charge settings to choose from, depending on your battery type. For advanced users, an optional Bluetooth dongle or MPPT Control Panel allow you to change nearly all of the charge controller's settings and an MC4 connector option makes installation easier and quicker.
