Blue Sky Solar Boost 3000i 12V-30A 400W MPPT Charge Controller
The Blue Sky Energy Solar Boost 3000i Solar Charge Controller charges 12V batteries at up to 30 amps from conventional 36-cell 12V PV modules. Patented MPPT technology operates the modules electrically in a manner that harvests all available PV power and can increase charge current up to 30% or more compared to conventional PWM type controllers.
The voltage step-down operation of the MPPT power converter also allows use of higher-voltage, lower-cost 60 cell grid-tie PV modules at up to 22 amps of output current. The process of converting the much higher 60-cell input voltage down to battery voltage may produce a charge current increase approaching 200%.
The SB3000i's sophisticated 3-stage charge control plus auto/manual equalization optimally charges flooded, gel and AGM lead-acid chemistry batteries. A user-configurable auxiliary output is also provided which can serve as either a 20 amp LVD load controller, 20 amp lighting controller with LVD, or 2 amp auxiliary battery charger for a second battery such as the engine start battery in an RV.
The low-power LED display combines excellent readability with very low power consumption, includes an automatic night time dimming feature and may be turned off completely if desired. The high-accuracy display shows battery voltage, input & output current, auxiliary battery voltage, and computes total solar charge amp-hours produced. To provide optimal charge control for various battery types, all digital setpoints for charge control and load control are user-adjustable.
The Solar Boost 3000i may also operate as an IPN Network Master controlling up to 7 remote Blue Sky Energy IPN-compatible charge controllers such as the SB3024iL. Blue Sky Energy's IPN Network allows multiple charge controllers to communicate with each other and coordinate their activities to charge the battery as a single coordinated charging machine. All networked controllers display through the SB3000i's digital display and may share a battery temperature sensor, IPN Pro Remote display for high accuracy battery system monitoring, or Universal Communication Module (UCM) for remote access over the Internet.
