There is currenlty a lengthy lead time before these units ship. We are currently recommending theSchneider Electric 100 Amp MPPT controlleras an alternative. We have lowered its price to match the 80 Amp model.
NOTE: In order to program this controller, you will need the XW system control panel XW-SCP (865-1050-01).
This is the new Conext XW MPPT 80 amp, 600 volts DC charge controller by Schneider Electric. It's the highest voltage controller available. When dealing with very high power solar arrays, wire size and the distance from the charge controller are critical design elements. The 600 volts DC input limit allows for a higher string voltage and and overall higher system efficiency. This model is perfect when your solar array must be mounted far away from the charge controller. If you simply configure your array for a higher voltage, you can deliver the power to the controller using a smaller wire size. When you consider the cost savings by using a smaller wire size, this controller may end up saving you a substantial amount of money on installation. This controller may also be used to charge batteries from high voltage grid tie arrays.
