The PL series controllers offer complete control over the charge cycle and gives information about current and past performance.
PL regulators have a built-in low battery disconnect switch. In addition, the versatile event controller can switch power on or off according to criteria set by the user. This allows the PL to do extra tasks such as switching a light on at night or keeping a water tank full by operating a pump when needed.
Regulation can be done in slow speed switching and PWM in both series and shunt modes. Other features include backup generator control and charging a second battery.
Display shows battery voltage, charge current, ampere hours in and out of battery, load being drawn from the battery and charge status.
Information is available for the past 30 days - so even if the user doesn't remember what happed, the regulator will.
With the optional PLI interface, the user can access the regulator from a computer or via modem. Data can be read and setting adjusted.
Up to three units can operate in parallel.
