High power solar charge controller

15 Mar 2021

Schneider Electric Solar’s Conext MPPT 100 expands Schneider Electric’s solar charge controller product line with a greater range of power ratings for solar and storage systems. The MPPT 100 allows homeowners to optimize battery charging from solar and maximize energy resiliency, with the easy, flexible installation of large PV arrays for whole-home backup. It is also suitable for prolonged blackouts. Even if the battery inverter shuts down due to a fully discharged battery during night, the MPPT charge controller allows the system to recover when PV returns. With the allowance for over-sized arrays, the MPPT 100 allows for 7kW solar power arrays. It is suitable for residential grid-tied self-supply and off-grid systems and is scalable for larger installations. For installers, the 600V MPPT 100 offers fast installations and low balance of system costs. With 2 PV string per charge controller, the MPPT 100 600 offers 50% less wiring than low voltage charge controllers. The MPPT 100 is also compatible with the MPPT Disconnect RS accessory for rapid shutdown compliance, fire safety, and arc fault detection. Customers can utilize Schneider Electric’s Insight, their robust digital energy management platform for Solar & Storage systems. The system performance is accessible through their local, cloud, and mobile interfaces. Homeowners can easily monitor, operate, and upgrade their solar and storage installation with peace of mind thanks to the advanced cybersecurity. For installers, powerful features like remote settings management and firmware updates make it easy to maintain the sites while keeping truck rolls minimum. Insight also offers installers a suite of portfolio monitoring and management tools, allowing them to keep track of a large number of install sites.
