The Xantrex (Schneider) C60 PWM (pulse width modulator) controller can be used as PV charge controller, DC load controller or DC diversion regulator in 12 and 24 volt DC systems. They operate in only one mode at a time, so two controllers must be used to provide both PV charge controller and low battery load disconnect. As DC load controllers they disconnect the load at a user-settable low voltage and reconnect at a higher voltage reconnect point. As diversion controllers they send excess power to a "dummy load" (such as a water or space heater) to regulate hydroelectric or wind generators. When used in diversion mode, derate the amperage by 25%. All Schneider (Xantrex) controllers, when used as a charge controller, have field-adjustable bulk and float set points and perform automatic equalization every 30 days or whenever LVD is reached. Equalization can be manually initiated with automatic shut-off. UL Listed. 2-year warranty.
Order the optional temperature sensor for a more accurate battery charge controller. The optional LCD digital display shows battery voltage, array amps and watts, cumulative amp-hours and a separately resettable "trip" amp-hour measurement. The digital display is available for mounting on the front of the charge controller, or with a 50-100 foot cable for remote mounting in a double-gang electrical box.
