Blue Sky SB3000i Solar Boost 30 Amp 12 Volt MPPT Charge Controller
Blue Sky Energy Solar Boost 3000i MPPT Charge Controller
Blue Sky Energy’s SB3000i panel-mount solar charge controller charges 12 VDC batteries at up to 30 A from conventional 36-cell 12 VDC PV modules (up to about 400 W), or with a single 60-cell PV module at up to 22 A of output current (up to about 290 W). The maximum input voltage limit is 50 VDC, so it cannot be used with 72-cell modules.
Solar Boost 3000i’s sophisticated three-stage charge control plus auto/manual equalization optimally charges flooded, gel and AGM lead-acid batteries. A user-configurable auxiliary output is also provided which can serve as a 20 A LVD load controller, 20 A lighting controller with LVD, or 2 A auxiliary battery charger for a second battery such as the engine-starting battery in an RV. All set-points for charge control and load control are user adjustable.
The LED display combines excellent readability with very low power consumption and includes an automatic night-time diming feature, or it may be turned off completely.
Solar Boost 3000i may also operate as an IPN Network Master controlling up to seven remote Blue Sky Energy IPN-compatible charge controllers such as the SB3024iL. All networked controllers display through the SB3000i’s digital display and may share a battery-temperature sensor. Dimensions are 6.4”W x 4.6”H x 2.2”D. Operating temperature range of -40 ºC to +45 ºC. Can be panel or wall mounted using the optional surface-mount box (see Accessories).
