Deep discharge protection:
The integrated deep discharge protection automatically turns the load output off as soon as the battery voltage drops below the minimum voltage. If the battery has been recharged and the battery voltage raises above the reactivation voltage the solar controller reactivates the load output automatically.  Overcharging is prevented by virtue of the integrated overcharging protection.

Automatic temperature compensation:
The temperature sensor (built-in for the 8 A, external for the 20 A) allows for the best possible charging of the battery in the case of fluctuating temperatures. The cut-off voltage and the gassing-end voltage are adapted dynamically to the prevalent temperatures. In the case of high temperatures the cut-off voltage will be decreased, at low temperatures it will be increased.

Gassing regulation:
If a lead battery is operated for a longer period of time without a controlled gas evolution harmful acidic layers may be built. The solar controller eliminates respectively prevents the forming of acidic layers by means of controlled gassing. This behavior also depends on the temperature and is compensated by the temperature sensor.

LED indicator:
The two LEDs inform about the real time charging condition as well as about the operation status of the battery.






PWM charging method
Solar controllers which operate based on the PWM principle charge the battery with maximum current at the beginning of the charging process. As soon as the respective cut-off voltage is reached the current flow is stopped, so that overcharging is prevented.

Most of the times the battery is not fully charged after this first charging step. A drop of the battery voltage is to be expected. Therefore the charging current is initiated again if the voltage falls short of a defined value. This process will be repeated until the battery is fully charged.
