Tycon Solar’s new TP-SC24-20 solar controllers are 3 stage PWM type temperature compensated battery charging controllers. They have multiple load operating modes which can be set through the “key” button on the controller.
The load output has a soft start feature so it can smoothly and reliably power up high capacitance loads up to 20A. There is a convenient On/Off button to disconnect load power when the unit is operated in the default mode (15).
They have full electronic protections for short circuit, reverse current, overvoltage, overcharge, over-discharge and over-temperature.
All protections are auto-recovery.
An automatic battery equalization charge automatically engages once every 30days. The equalization charge helps to balance the batteries in an array and reduce the possibility of battery sulfation. The equalization charge is limited to 1- hour duration to preserve battery life.
A special feature is the 5V 1A USB charging port, so a technician can charge his phone or tablet while on site.
Connections are via 6 screw terminals for wire size up to 10AWG. There are four screw holes(3.5mm) for mounting. The controllers are internally fused for protection, but we recommend always using an external 20A fuse between the controller and the battery. There are four screw holes(3.5mm) for mounting.
