What is a solar charge controller
The solar controller is one of the core components of an off-grid solar system. Its main job is to regulate the process of charging the solar panels to the batteries, and it comes with a protection function to protect the solar panels and batteries from being damaged.
If you have a home solar system, a solar charge controller with remote display will help you monitor your system’s performance remotely and timely. Unlike traditional charge controllers, these units can be configured to direct power to either of the batteries at various times. Moreover, they allow you to choose charging priorities between two different battery banks in increments of 10%. If one battery is fully charged, the controller will switch to the other battery. Some charge controllers even come with a remote display that gives you information about your solar panels’ performance and tilt.
What is a remote display
A remote display is a device that can remotely control and display real-time parameters of the system, which is connected to the solar controller via cable, wlan or Bluetooth.
Most of the advanced charge controllers have an LCD display that displays several useful parameters about your solar system. These meters typically display the amount of energy collected by the solar array, the amount of energy credited to the battery, and diagnostic error messages. Some units even come with a remote display so you can monitor and adjust your system from anywhere. This is particularly convenient for users who are not close to their solar panels all the time. Lastly, some solar charge controllers with remote displays have buttons to help you control the system.
Benefits of a remote display
The solar charge controller with remote display has several advantages to help you better accomplish solar charging The main advantages are as follows:
- Remote control: you can set up, control and observe the system operation from a distance.
- Easy access: only a cable or Bluetooth network is needed to access the system.
- Instant Alerts: If there is a system failure, the remote controller can notify in a very timely way.
- Data statistics: You can view the system power generation and usage remotely.
Best Solar Charge Controller with Remote Display
The most important thing to keep in mind when buying a solar charge controller with remote display is the power rating. While the higher the rating, the more expensive it is, it will allow you to scale your system and account for different weather conditions. Make sure you choose one that has the power you need, or else you will be disappointed. In any case, the more power the solar charge controller has, the more likely it will run your system at a lower efficiency level.
