Operation procedure of Solar Charge Controller PWM:

 A. Working state indication:

.  Charged state indication: the solar indicator light is on, as the input voltage of solar battery panel reaches a certain point., as the storage battery is charging. The indicator light will flash quickly, as the system is over voltage.

. Storage battery indication: when the battery is under voltage, the indicator light is yellow.  Over-charged for more than 10 seconds, the indicator light is red and the load is off. In normal working state, the indicator light is green..

. Load indication: when the load is in normal working state, indicator light is on continually. In over current, indicator light flashs slowly. In short circuit, the load is off at once and the indicator light flashs quickly. While the current is more than 1.25 times of rated current or more than 1.5 times for 5 seconds, the load of controller will be off.

B. Setting methods:

To press the button for 3 seconds, the LED flashes and the system of the device is under mode of regulation. After releasing the key, the data

in the LED changes along with every key-press till matches with the model designated by customers.  To finish the setting, please wait until the LED stops to flash. Or just press the button for 3 seconds.

C. Modes description

.Lighting control: without sunshine the light intensity decreases to start point. Then the controller recognizes the start signal after 10 minutes. Based on the parameter, the load is on. While under sunshine, the light intensity increase to start point, and then the controller recognizes the close signal The load is off.

 Time control: The starting procedure is the same with that of pure lighting control. Timing control is dual period control; hence the double load can be regulated respectively. The load-on and load-off are alternated till the load is off in daytime. The time for the load-on and load-off can be adjusted to realize the different control effect. If the time for load-on is zero, the load will be off at night till the time for load-off is past. If the time for load-off is zero, the control effect will be the same with that of pure lighting control.

General mode: Regardless of the daytime or night, users can control the load-on and load-off by key-press under this mode. This mode is used for some special load or regulation.

Test mode: this mode is designed for system regulation. It is almost the same with pure optical mode except that the cancelation of 10 minutes delay (Please refer to pure lighting control). The load is on with optical signal. In reverse, without optical signal, the load is off. This feature makes it easier to check the system installation.

Installment and use of Solar Charge Controller PWM-Simple Type

1.The controller should be fastened firmly.

Physical size: 140 X 90.5(mm)

Mounting hole size: 133.5 X 70(mm)

2.Preparation of the conductor wire: it is suggested that the stranded copper insulated conductor wire be used. The length of the wire should be as short as possible for the purpose of reducing electricity loss with the premise of safety. According to the current density of 4A/mm2, the cross sectional area of the copper conductor wire is chosen and the connector lug of the controller is stripped off 5mm.

First link the terminals of the battery and the controller, pay attention to the positive hole and the negative hole, and avoid reverse connect. If it is linked well, the indicator light will be on and you can press the button to check for appropriate connection.

3.Load connection: Connect the load wire to the load output end of the controller and pay attention to the positive hole and the negative hole and avoid reverse connect in order to prevent it from burning out.

4.  There is a radian that is located under the terminal connecting the battery and the load conductor according to the graph, thus preventing rain water from leaking into the controller along the wire.

System description:

The controller, which is equipped with functions of overcharge, over discharge and over-current protection, has a system of solar energy DC, designing for solar street lamps. It also has indicators for charging, battery state and load. It employs the mode of PMW battery, which guarantees the battery to work well and extends its service life.

 

The use description of the indicator light state:

When the indicator light(1) becomes red, it reflects the battery is on charging and when the indicator light(1) flashes red and green alternately, it indicates the battery is fully charged. When the indicator light (2) becomes green, it is in the course of normal working state. When the indicator light (3) becomes red, it is under voltage and the controller will be powered off, then reminding the users to recharge. The controller will recover normal working state and the indicator light will become red after the battery reaches the normal working scope.

The load is opened and the load indicator light (4) is always being on.  What’s more, the load current is two times more than the rated current of the controller or it is short current, the controller will shut down its output. The load indicator light (4) turns into being always-being-on-red, users should check the connection of the load and it can recover to work after shutting down the load of fault and pressing the button.

  1. Neil Zak says:

    I have a 160W mono solar panel and a Intelligent 30A PWM solar charge controller, this is hooked up to 4 6V golf cart batteries with a 12V output as a power supply to the trailer, originally, I had a 20A PWM solar charger that worked very well set on 16 load value, during a bad storm, this unit was ruined.

    My problem now is, that I cannot set the load value on my current Controller, it keeps on flashing, looks like slow, no matter what value (0-17) I set it at. The solar led and the battery led are both on solid green. What do you think is wrong?

  2. J. Moulin says:

    I purchased a 12V PWM solar charge controller 30A associated with 150W solar pannel and 120AH battery.
    let me know how can I obtain permanent power supply day & night.
    does it correspond to number 0 of lightning control option ?
    or is it number 16, then how do I obtain “ON” mode ? thanks for help
