Authentic MPPT Technology Ensures the MPPT Tracking Efficiency ≥99.5%, Conversion Efficiency ≥97.8%.
The MPPT controller utilizes SMK Solar Maximum PowerPoint Tracking (MPPT) technology to extract maximum power from the solar array.
The tracking algorithm is fully automatic and does not require user adjustment. SMK technology tracks the array’s maximum power point as it varies with weather conditions, ensuring that full power is harvested from the variety throughout the day.
4-stage Charging Mode: The MPPT Solar Charge Controller has a 4-stage battery Charging algorithm for rapid, efficient, and safe battery charging
The green backlight LCD, LED Indicator: Large backlight LCD Real-time status Monitoring, also equipped with LED indicators
Fan Cooling: this Controller has a built-in Cooling Fan to help Heat Dissipation during the Controller running, thereby protecting the component and ensuring the Controller’s Performance.
Multiple Protections: Multiple Protection against battery overcharge, battery over-discharge, battery overvoltage, solar reverse current, solar overpower, short circuit, overload, solar reverse, battery reverse, and over temperature.
Solar Panel Controller Price Comparison and why I chose this Controller
Usually, a 60 amp MPPT charge controller is very expensive on the market. When choosing a 60a MPPT controller, stability is the aspect first to consider because there are many fake MPPT controllers on the market.
Good quality is important.
In our experience, the most welcomed 60 amp controller with safety and reasonable price is renogy and zhcsolar’s Controller. But a Renogy 60 Amp Commander MPPT Solar Charge Controller charged $499, compared to the abilities and price. The best choice is to take this Controller.

4 Charge Stage of this Solar Panel Charge Controller
Bulk Charge Stage
In the bulk charge stage, the battery is not at the 100% charge stage, and the battery voltage has not yet charged to the absorption voltage set-point. The Controller will deliver 100% of available solar power to recharge the battery. The green LED will blink once 0.5 seconds during bulk Charging.
When the battery has recharged to the absorption voltage set-point, constant-voltage regulation is used to maintain battery voltage at the absorption set-point. This prevents heating and excessive battery gassing. The battery can come to a full state of charge at the absorption voltage set-point. The Green LED will blink once per two seconds during absorption charging.
After the battery is fully charged in the absorption stage, The MPPT controller reduces the battery voltage to the Float voltage set-point. When the battery is fully recharged, there can be no more chemical reactions, and all the Charging current is turned into heat and gassing. The float stage provides a very low rate of maintenance charging while reducing the heating and gassing of a fully charged battery. The purpose of the Float is to protect the battery from long-term over-charge. The green LED will keep green during float charging.
Equalize Charging will start working in 30 days. It will charge at a higher voltage to activate the battery activity, usually 30 mins, depending on different battery types. The equalized charge will make a longer battery life.
