Solarland line of CSA certified polycrystalline solar panels are made with a standard 30mm aluminum frame. They also use large conduit-ready junction boxes to meet UL1703 standards. They are manufactured using the highest quality components to ensure longer life and excellent performance. SolarLand CSA solar modules are made to operate in Class 1, Division 2 hazardous environments commonly found in facilities serving the oil and gas industry.
Small photovoltaic applications require protection for battery charging. A small 10A charge controller is sufficient to maintain the batteries in a healthy state of charge when using solar panels up to 45W. The Phocos ECO-N-10-T is fully encapsulated charge controller with a IP68 casing made to handle harsh environments, it is the perfect match for Solarland CSA certified solar modules.

Each time you charge deep cycle batteries with solar panels, it's necessary to use a charge controller in the circuit to protect the battery from over charging, and in some instances from over discharging. The only exception is when using solar panels smaller than 5W. Choosing the most suitable charge controller is simple and only requires two steps:
Step 1 - Voltage selection
Select a charge controller that is compatible with the system voltage. The standard configurations are 12, 24, and 48 volts. If you are wiring your batteries for 24 volts you need a charge controller that is rated at 24 volts.
Some controllers are voltage specific, meaning that the voltage cannot be changed or substituted. Other more sophisticated controllers include a voltage auto-detect feature, which allows it to be used with different voltage settings.
Step 2 - Current capacity
Select a charge controller that can handle the maximum output current of the solar panel (or solar array). The maximum possible current that a PV panel can generate is the “short circuit current,” indicated as Isc in the panel’s label or specs sheet.
It’s recommended to include a safety factor for isolated events as well. For example, a solar panel with a Isc of 7.89 amp could potentially produce an extra 25% on a sunny day with very clear snow pack. (additional light reflected off the snow). This results in a possible maximum of 9.86 amp (7.89 x 1.25 = 9.86 amp). In this case, a 10 amp charge controller would be recommended.
Below you will find a quick guide to choosing the proper charge controller for several popular solar panel sizes.
