The Schneider XW-MPPT60-150 can be used with PV arrays with voltages up to 150 VDC and can support an output of up to 60 A for battery voltages between 12 to 60 VDC. Maximum power point tracking (MPPT) maximizes energy harvest and provides increased flexibility in module selection and string sizing.
A large aluminum heat sink eliminates the need for an internal fan for added reliability. Built-in ground fault protection (GFP) eliminates the need for a separate GFP breaker. The XW-MPPT60-150 can be mounted on the side or top of the XW power distribution panel, or used stand-alone in other PV systems.
The front panel features a 2-line 16-character display and 4 buttons for configuration and system monitoring.
A battery temperature sensor is included with the controller.
The charge controller has a configurable single-function auxiliary output (producing 5 to 13 VDC at 200 mA) that can drive a relay for load control or activate devices, such as vent fans or indicator alarms. The XW-MPPT60-150 is able to communicate its settings and activity to other Xanbus-enabled devices, such as the XW Series inverter/charger, the System Control Panel II (SCP), XW Automatic Generator Start (XW-AGS), and other XW-MPPT solar charge controllers through the Xanbus network.
