Key Features and Benefits
  • Low Cost
    The SHS was specifically designed to meet the needs of the rural electrification market. The low cost resulted from using the latest electronic technology and high volume manufacturing.
  • Designed for High Quality and Reliability
    The SHS controller has no moving parts which greatly reduces failure rates.
  • Electronic Protections
    The SHS has built-in electronic fuses that do not require replacement. Any wiring mistakes during installation will not damage the controller.
  • Tropicalization
    The SHS electronics are protected with a moisture-tight coating, minimizing damage from humidity and from nesting insects.
  • Easy to Use
    The SHS controller is fully automatic and requires no adjustments or user selections.
  • Reduces Cost of Battery Replacements
    The low voltage disconnect will increase battery life. The loads are automatically disconnected when the battery is low and automatically reconnected after the battery is recharged. Complete charging will increase battery life and storage capacity. The controller will maximize the amount of solar energy into the battery and avoid drying out the battery.
  • Provides Useful Information
    LEDs display status information and battery level which helps the user to better operate the solar power system.
