Charge controller protects your 12/24-volt gel or lead-acid batteries and controls large solar arrays.

28 Amp charge controller handles solar arrays of up to 450 watts. Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) technology provides higher charging efficiency and maintains a higher battery reserve than standard charge controllers.

Protects battery (or multi-battery bank) from overcharging, high voltage surges, short circuits, low voltage discharging and reverse current. The charge controller is designed to protect your 12/24-volt gel or lead-acid batteries. It prevents overcharging and discharging of the battery. It also comes equipped with a built-in blocking diode to avoid reverse current overnight.
