Most MPPT charge controllers require solar panels to be put in series to utilize their full potential. Only, most users won’t have enough space available for such a setup. Furthermore, when put in series, the output will be less in an environment with partial shadows compared to connecting the same panels in parallel.
With SUNBEAMsystem MoonRay 160 MPPT Charge Controller these outdated limitations belong to the past. It is constructed to make optimal use of single panels and panels connected in parallel but also supports 24V systems. The controller will maximize the output of any modern solar panel (no matter the brand) during daily sunlight variations. Combine SUNBEAMsystem MoonRay 160 MPPT Charge Controller with SUNBEAMsystem Shadow Optimized solar panels and you have the most versatile solar setup possible.
With the optional Bluetooth module, you gain full control of your system with the SUNBEAMsystem app. Not only does it feature real-time data at your hand, it also allows you to stack multiple MoonRay controllers in a single overview. Any SMART LITHIUM batteries installed in the system will automatically be included, allowing you to review the full system from the palm of your hand.
For the user aiming to install many solar panels, MoonRay supports the stacking of several controllers. The advanced networking app can show all controllers in a single clear overview, or only data from a specific controller. The extremely low self-consumption (<12mA) is industry-leading, ensuring no power goes to waste.
SUNBEAMsystem MoonRay 160 MPPT Charge Controller is fully configurable and most settings can be made by using the onboard LCD interface. It supports any type of battery. Traditional Lead-Acid and Gel charging profiles can be set via the onboard interface. Advanced charger profiles for batteries such as AGM and Lithium can be set via the optional display or optional app.
MoonRay is certified on both electrical emissions and its outstanding electrical safety functions. It’s also equipped with a more advanced safety function. For instance, when faced with the risk of overheating or too high currents the controller will not simply shut down, but instead dials down the energy flow to a sustainable level. It then saves a show and saves an event notification, helping the user to take suitable action later on.
