12V 8A Water Resistant PWM Solar Charge Controller

via Jaycar
Suitable for both wet-cell and sealed lead-acid batteries and uses pulse width modulation for optimal 3-stage charging. It is compatible with all types of solar arrays and is potted in epoxy resin making it water resistance and suitable for use in areas of high humidity, such as outdoor or mounted to the back of a solar panel. The controller also features a night light load output which will automatically connect the load during the evening and disconnect it during the daytime, which also has low-voltage disconnect/re-connect protection. Reverse current flowing through the solar array is automatically blocked in this unit which removes the requirement for a separate blocking diode, and different charge voltages are selectable for wet or sealed type lead-acid batteries. Over current, over voltage, short circuit, over temperature and reverse polarity protections also featured. Full specs available on our website.
