The Plasmatronics PL Series (PL20, PL40, PL80 - Formerly PL60) have been used in stand alone power systems for many many years...
We have supplied approximately 1000 Plasmatronics regulators to the Coffs Coast since 2000 and they are extremely reliable... They may not be the most exciting to look at, but the form and functionality of the Plasmatronics PL series regulators are definitely tried and tested.
The PL series of charge controllers give you the freedom to operate your stand alone solar power system the way you want to.
They offer complete control over the charge cycle, plus an unprecented amount of useful information about current and past performance.
PL regulators help to protect the system with 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.
The user can select either Pulse Width Modulation or slow speed switching. Regulation can be done in both series and shunt modes. Other features include backup generator control and charging a second battery.Features and Benefits:
- Display shows battery voltage, charge current, ampere hours in and out of battery, load being drawn from the battery and which part of the charge cycle the battery is in.
- Easy to maintain
- Information is available for the past 30 days - so even if the you don't remember what happened, the regulator will.
- Well Connected
- With the optional PLI interface and PLcom software, the user can access the regulator from a computer. Data can be read or settings adjusted. This can be done remotely using a modem.
- Its capacity to handle 12, 24 and 48V systems and allow complete control of the regulation cycle mean you can use it almost anywhere.
