Schneider Electrical Launches New Solar Charge Controller – Solar Business
Schneider Electric Solar, a multinational company that provides digital energy and automation solutions for efficiency and sustainability, has launched the MPPT 100 600 solar charge controller.
In combination with storage inverters from Schneider Electric, the MPPT 100 forms a Solar + storage solution that contributes to the global transition to a climate-neutral energy landscape. The Conext MPPT 100 expands the Schneider Electric line of solar charge controllers to include a larger power range for solar and storage systems. Compared to the MPPT 80 600 charge controller, the MPPT 100 600 offers 25% more charging power.
With the MPPT 100, homeowners can optimize battery charging via solar energy and maximize energy stability by installing large photovoltaic arrays (PV arrays) easily and flexibly to secure the entire house. It is also better suited for longer power outages. Even if the battery inverter shuts down at night due to a fully discharged battery, the MPPT charge controller allows the system to recover when the PV returns.
Taking into account oversized arrays, the MPPT 100 enables 7 kW solar power arrays. It is ideal for network-connected and network-independent systems in residential areas and is scalable for larger installations. For installers, the 600 V MPPT 100 offers faster installations and a lower balance of system costs. With 2 PV strings per charge controller, the MPPT 100 600 offers 50% less wiring than low-voltage charge controllers.
In addition to the Schneider Electric MPPT 60 and MPPT 80, the MPPT 100 is also compatible with the MPPT Disconnect RS accessories to ensure fast shutdown compliance, fire protection and arc fault detection. Schneider Electric MPPT solar charge controllers are part of the ecosystem of solutions for integrating Solar + storage such as XW and SW storage inverters, power distribution and energy management.
