Description Technical Specs
 

The micro-processor based PVCM40D photo-voltaic (PV)
charge controller is used to connect PV panels to 12V or 24V
DC storage batteries.  The PVCM determines which mode to
operate in, 12V or 24V, by measuring the battery voltage that 
powers it.

Features
  • The micro-processor based PVCM40D photo-voltaic (PV)
    charge controller is used to connect PV panels to 12V or 24V
    DC storage batteries.  The PVCM determines which mode to
    operate in, 12V or 24V, by measuring the battery voltage that ENCLOSURE: Epoxy potted in PVC plastic
    powers it. 
      
    The PVCM40D performs five basic functions: 
    * It senses when the battery is fully charged and disconnects
    the PV charge current to avoid over-charging the battery.
    * It resumes charging the battery when the battery voltage
    has dropped sufficiently to accept additional charge current.
    *  I t  checks the availability of PV charge current, by cycling
    the relay every 4 minutes.  If there is insufficient charge
    current available, it’s internal relay will disconnect the battery
    to prevent discharge through the PV panels at night.
    * It also compensates for battery temperature and adjusts the
    charge threshold voltages when mounted in battery case.
    *  Its microprocessor reduces the charging rate of fully
    charged batteries to minimize water addition requirements.
      
    Three different colored LED’s indicate the status of the
    battery charge.  Grn = Full, Yel = Partial, blinking Org = low
    Note: When orange LED is blinking, due to low voltage, both
    the green and yellow LEDs will be dimly lit.
      
    The temperature compensation works as follows: (lead acid)
      
    below     08C On @ 13.3VDC Off @ 15.0VDC
    between 0-58C On @ 13.3VDC Off @ 14.8VDC
    between 5-108C On @ 13.1VDC Off @ 14.6VDC
    between 10-158C On @ 12.9VDC Off @ 14.4VDC
    between 15-308C On @ 12.7VDC Off @ 14.2VDC
    between 30-358C On @ 12.7VDC Off @ 14.0VDC
    between 35-408C On @ 12.6VDC Off @ 13.8VDC
    between 40-458C On @ 12.6VDC Off @ 13.6VDC
      
    Temperatures > 458C or no temperature sensor connected:
    On @ 12.7VDC Off @ 14.2VDC.
