SOLAR TORRENT

Solar Charge Controller Series

The Solar Charge Controller offers by SolarTorrent.com are for use in solar photovoltaic systems,
which coordinate the working of solar panels, batteries, and loads. It adds protection functions,
so that the entire system can be used safely and efficiently.

WS-C series charge controllers are applicable to all types of photovoltaic panels and various
types of batteries, MCU (Micro-Processing Controller) has PMW (Pulse Modulation
Wide-frequency) 0~100% variable duty cycle process. According to the types and actual
charging situation of the battery, WS-C controller series can provide fast and best charging
voltage and electricity from the PV panel. C30 and C60 series are equipped with advanced
man-machine interactive function, so the user can adjust the charging voltage.

Function:
1. Overloading protection
2. Short circuit protection
3. Conversed discharge protection
4. Reversed polarity connection protection
5. Thunder protection
6. Low voltage protection
