Info

Refrigerator Lights Inverter Radio Appliances Spring Summer Fall C Winter All four panels regularly produce more than their rated capacity. The power from the PV panels is brought through a wiring center (from Steve Willey of Backwoods Solar Electric Systems, 8530-HP Rapid Lightning Creek Rd., Sandpoint, ID 83864, 208 263-4290) which provides a blocking diode and a charge regulator. The power then flows into two 6 Volt L-16 Trojan batteries (rated 350 Ampere-hours) wired in series to produce a...

And 120 Ampere Photovoltaic Charge Controllers

The CC-60 is a series Pulse Width Modulated charge controller providing complete and failsafe battery recharging. State-of-the-Art MOSFET technology gives the fullest possible charge by trickle charging the batteries once they reach float voltage. This is not possible with unreliable relay series Standard features include temperature compensation, 12 24 Volt selectable, 16 easy to select S.O.C. voltages, remote voltage sensing and low voltage warning. The CC-60 and CC-120 will interface with...

Things that Work

Home Power tests Backwoods Solar Electric's Battery Charge Controller This battery charge controller operates in two modes. As series resistance to control incoming energy from any DC source. And as a shunt regulator which connects loads to the batteries in order to control system voltage. Steve Willey's battery controller operates either or both ways. The strong points of Backwoods Solar's controller are versatility and quality. Shipping Container & Documentation The unit arrived in fine...
