Modern charge controllers regulate battery charge for off-grid battery banks and hybrid emergency battery back up systems. The charge controller keeps a solar or wind system battery array charged and balanced. Toboa Energy’s high quality selections are offered primarily for solar and wind energy systems using deep cycle battery packages but can be applied in other applications.
A series charge controller or series regulator disables further current flow into batteries when they are full.
Shunt controllers, or shunt regulators, divert excess electricity to an auxiliary or “shunt” load, such as an electric water heater, when batteries are full.
Charge controllers are offered as separate devices in conjunction with solar or wind power generator electronics systems. Normally used in solar systems for RV’s, large boats, and off-grid home battery storage systems where temporary or stationary solar is used. In solar applications, charge controllers may also be called solar regulators, regulating the flow of voltage to the battery bank keeping it charged and balanced.
Toboa Energy Resources offers a wide range of name brand solar charge controllers for applications requiring accurate power distribution and balancing. Several sizes and types to choose from including ethernet capable. Contact Toboa Energy for pricing delivery and application help 262-654-3833.
