More SmartSolar 250 Volt MPPT models announced

From time to time we let you know what’s new, in stock and available now – just in case you’ve missed anything in the pricelist or on e-order.

In March we announced the MPPT 250/100 and MPPT 250/85 (shown in the blog headline image with optional plug-in LCD display) – now we can add more 250V SmartSolar models.

New models

The latest in the ultra-fast Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) Smart Solar Charge Controller range are the following, available with MC4 or Tr cable connections.

  • SmartSolar MPPT 250/60-MC4 Solar chargers (SCC125060310)
  • SmartSolar MPPT 250/70-Tr Solar chargers (SCC125070210)
  • SmartSolar MPPT 250/70-MC4 Solar chargers (SCC125070310)
  • SmartSolar MPPT 250/60-Tr Solar chargers (SCC125060210)

These all cater for a maximum PV open circuit voltage of 250V (under maximum coldest conditions) with a 245V start up and maximum operating voltage. If you are not familiar with calculating voltages for differing temperatures please read the Bob Hopman blog on ‘Matching solar modules to MPPT charge controllers‘ which includes a link to the VE-MPPT-Calc.xlsx spreadsheet.
