SunSaver MPPT

SunSaver MPPT

The SunSaver MPPT™ with TrakStar technology is the perfect charging solution for smaller off-grid solar systems up to 400Wp. An industrial-grade design proven in challenging applications and environments, SunSaver has been called the single most successful charge controller in the solar industry.

“…an amazing product…well built, and well designed”

Key features and benefits

  • Maximum power point tracking (MPPT) optimally matches the solar array to the battery—no wasted PV electricity.
  • Use of high voltage modules – In addition to 12V crystalline modules,
    enables use of high voltage modules for off-grid battery charging.
  • Converts 36V or 24V arrays for use with either a 24V or 12V battery.
  • Automatic Lighting Control – four programmable timer sequences for PV lighting applications using MSView.
  • Extensive electronic protections include short-circuit, over-current and reverse polarity to ensure the controller will not be damaged by wiring mistakes or overloads.
