200 Volt maximum PV open circuit voltage
The T80HV is the only MPPT charge controller that works with the newer higher voltage PV modules. Specifically, the Sanyo HIT 200 modules have Vmp of 51.75v at 50oC which will not charge a 48 volt battery, but they generate up to 79.88 volts open circuit at -40oC. Two of these modules in a series string will generate 103 volts at Vmp, but the Voc is almost 160 volts which will destroy all the 140/150 volt charge controllers. The T80HV is designed to operate up to 200 Voc and 160 Vmp and works with the Sanyo HITs.
FREE Energy Monitor Built In
The T80HV includes a built-in Energy Monitor using TriMetric™ Technology from Bogart Engineering. The monitor tracks power production and consumption to calculate the energy remaining in the battery. State-of-Charge (SOC) is displayed in Percent Full, Amp-hours, Watt-Hours, and Bar- Graph format. In addition, 90 days of energy-harvest history is stored in the T80HV.
Power and Control in a Single Device
The T80HV TurboCharger™ integrates Maximum Power Point Tracking, battery charge management, state-of charge
information, and communications into a single device.
Integral Performance-and-Update Communications
The slot for optional add-in cards provides data communication to Wireless Remote Displays, PCs and the Internet. System performance can be monitored remotely and the T80HV accepts software upgrades using a PC and the Remote Display SD Card.
Continuous Power Rating Up to 45oC/113°F Ambient
The T80HV TurboCharger™ produces full-rated power without de-rating at up to 45oC ambient temperature. Above that temperature, the output current is reduced gradually to protect the life of the T80HV and then automatically ramped
up as the temperature decreases. High-efficiency power circuits and robust thermal design minimize heat generation.
The internal temperature-controlled variable speed fan runs just fast enough to maintain optimum reliability.
Optimum MPPT/Charging Efficiency Cuts Costs
The T80HV captures up to 35% more power from the photovoltaic (PV) array with patent-pending MPPT technology. The Apollo MPPT algorithm starts early and locks onto the peak power during rapidly changing insolation and temperature. The T80HV dramatically cuts the cost of a PV system by reducing the number of PV panels required, eliminating the need for heavy gauge wiring, and increasing the life of the storage batteries.
