The Xantrex XW-MPPT60-150 charge controller can be used with PV arrays with voltages up to 150 VDC (Voc must not exceed 150V) and can support an output of up to 60 amps into the battery. Battery bank can be configuring from 12 to 60 volts DC.
The Xantrex XW-MPPT60-150 Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) allows the charge controller to deliver to the batteries the maximum energy available from the PV array. The MPPT algorithm continuously adjusts the operating points in an attempt to find the maximum power point of the array. The algorithm can then determine if it is harvesting more or less power than the previous operating points.
The charge controller has a configurable auxiliary output (producing 5 to 13 volts at 200 mA) to drive a relay for load control or to turn on devices such as vent fans or indicator alarms. The auxiliary output can be configured to perform only one function at a time.
The Xantrex XW-MPPT60-150 charge controller features a large aluminum heat sink that allows it to operate at full power with only convection cooling, without the need for a fan. Built-in PV ground fault protection allows code-compliant installation without the need for additional ground fault protection. The front panel features a 2-line 16-character display and four buttons for configuration and system monitoring. A battery temperature sensor is included with the controller.
