A Perfect Match for your Panel
With continuous, high-speed Maximum Power Point Tracking, night consumption of only 0.9mA, and typical electrical efficiency greater than 97%, the GV-10-PCB delivers.
Wide Power Band
Efficiency matters. Many controllers are designed simply to not burn up at high power levels, with no attention to efficiency in low light. At Genasun, we understand that a watt-hour collected during bad weather is worth even more than a watt-hour collected on a sunny day. We tuned our power conversion circuitry to maintain high efficiency over the full range of power levels. Whereas other controllers may charge with efficiencies as low as 80% or worse in low light, the GV-10-PCB maintains greater than 96% efficiency while operating at only 10% of its rated input. When other controllers have given up and are draining your battery, the GV-10-PCB will still be charging.
Genasun controllers are deployed to the most remote locations on earth. They endure years at sea, harsh Antarctic winters, freezing conditions in the upper atmosphere on solar powered airplanes, and in a few off-the-map locations. Made in the USA, each controller is put through complete electrical testing to ensure reliability. If you need mission-critical power, this is your controller.
High-Speed MPPT: Always on Target
Not all Maximum Power Point Tracking controllers were created equal. Most use a “sweep and sleep” method that scans every 30-60 seconds. That’s okay for a clear day, but traditional controllers are constantly off target when used on vehicles or in changing cloud conditions – exactly when power is scarce and is needed the most. Genasun controllers adapt to changing light conditions 15 times every second. They are always on target, capturing every bit of available sunshine. Simply put, other controllers can’t keep up.
Tailored Lithium Charging Profiles Available
Our Lithium charging algorithms draw from a decade of experience building lithium battery packs for harsh environments. We’ve worked with every chemistry and have tailored charge profiles to help you get more capacity and cycle life from your battery pack.
Custom Voltages Available
Genasun stocks the GV-10-PCB for lead-acid batteries and for a variety of Lithium chemistries and cell configurations. A custom charge profile can be programmed at the factory to match the specs of your lead-acid or Li battery.
