Victron SmartSolar MPPT 100/30 Solar Charge ControllerVictron
With a worldwide reputation for innovation, reliability, and quality, Netherlands based Vitron has been serving the marine, vehicle, and off-grid markets with their power systems for over 45 years. We're hard-pressed to find anyone that matches Victron for quality.
The Victron BlueSolar MPPT 100/30 is a great choice for controlling up to 440 watts of solar panels at 12 volts, or 880 watts of panels at 24 volts, with a maximum recommended PV open circuit voltage of 90vDC. It automatically selects between 12 and 24 volts on the output.
Besides great build quality and a 5-year warranty, the BlueSolar has a number of unique features.
The Victron MPPT 100/30 can be connected right out of the box, and a rotary switch lets you choose between 8 preset battery type profiles. More extensive configuration and monitoring is possible with:
• The Victron Bluetooth Dongle and the free app on your smartphone, tablet, or Mac, for graphical presentation of real-time and historical data. Setup can also be done via the app.
• The Victron Color Control GX Panel, which can also connect to Victron battery chargers, inverters, and battery monitors.
• The new MPPT Control remote, a dedicated monitor/control for all current Victron MPPT controllers with a VE.Direct port.
• The VE.Direct cable can connect Victron MPPT controllers with VE.Direct ports to a Windows PC (more details here).
Outstanding maximum efficiency exceeds 98%, with no cooling fan needed. Full output current up to 40°C (104°F). Internal temperature sensor compensates absorption and float charge voltages for temperature. Electronic components are resin encapsulated to protect against the elements.
