The Victron SmartSolar is a solar charger for 12V or 24V systems (auto select). The maximum nominal power that is passed through the solar charger at a 12V system voltage is 290W and 580W at a 24V system voltage. The maximum no-load voltage is 100V.
The SmartSolars have a programmable battery charging algorithm and have Bluetooth Smart built in as standard to adjust the solar charger and monitor the solar yield.
Bluetooth Smart built-in
Because Bluetooth smart is built-in, no dongle is required. This makes it possible to set up, monitor and update the controller via Apple or Android smartphones, tablets or other devices.
For a wired data connection with a Color Control Panel, Venus GX, PC or other devices, the SmartSolar has a VE.Direct port.
An ultra-fast MPPT improves especially when it is cloudy and the light intensity constantly changes the energy yield of the panels. This improves energy yield by up to 30% compared to PWM charge controllers and 10% compared to slower MPPT controllers.
If a solar charge controller cannot fully recharge the battery in 1 day, the result is often that the battery fluctuates between partially charged and fully discharged. This will cause irreparable damage to a lead-acid battery within weeks or months. The BatteryLife algorithm monitors the battery’s state of charge and, if necessary, slightly increases the load disconnect level until the solar energy is sufficient to charge the battery to full 100%. This will fully charge the battery about once a week.
