"I wanted to let you know I am very pleased with the service you gave & the quality & condition of the solar panels I received from EcoDirect. I will purchase more items in the future from EcoDirect and will be sure to tell others about your fine operation."

"Thanks EcoDirect! My solar system is up and running; waiting for City and San Diego Gas & Electric inspections this week; so far so good!"

- J.L.,

"I enjoyed ordering what I needed. It was simple and fast, no issues what so ever. If I need something else and its at a good price, I will defiantly order from here again. Also the shipping is at a good price."

- Simon
My shipment arrived on time, as predicted. Very, very good performance by EcoDirect. What more could you ask for from an online material supplier? Looks like the quantity from Quick Mount is spot on & the rails were bundled safely. EcoDirect will be my recommended source to my friends & neighbors for solar.

  • Display Panel: CM, CMR/50 or CMR/100-A back-lit meter which continuously displays: battery voltage, DC amperage, cumulative amp hours and amp hours since last reset. CM mounts on front of C Series, C35, C40 and C60, charge controllers. The remote meters CMR/50 and CMR/100 use simple telephone type plug-in connectors. 50 ft. (15 m) or 100 ft. (30 m) cable included.
  • Battery Temperature Sensor: BTS/15 or BTS/35 Monitors battery temperature and adjusts charging voltage for maximum performance. A 15 ft. (4.5 m) or 35 ft. (11 m) cable with standard telephone type connectors is included.

Detailed Description

Silent Microprocessor Control

All C Series controllers have a powerful microprocessor at their core which increases system performance and maximizes battery life. They are fully solid state and operate silently.

PWM Charge Performance

C Series controllers all use Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) charging profiles which are designed to provide a full charge to your battery while, at the same time, minimize gassing which can shorten battery life.

3-Stage Battery Charging

All C Series controllers automatically initiate a 3-stage battery charging cycle. Bulk, Absorption, and Float modes are used to ensure that voltage and current settings accurately match the batteries' actual state of charge. This means fast-as-possible charging and extended battery life. An auto equalize mode can be easily switched off when the controller is used with sealed batteries. C Series controllers are factory set for solar PV battery charging operation.

Field Adjustable

There are a number of field configurable, user adjustments for C Series controllers. C35 and C60's can only be set for 12 or 24 VDC operation. The C40 may be configured for 12, 24 or 48 volt systems. Bulk and Float voltage set points are user adjustable which allows use with a wide variety of battery technologies including; flooded lead acid, gel, and absorbed glass mat. In addition, there are manually selectable settings for Nicad batteries.

DC Load Controller Mode

When used as a load controller, the C Series will automatically turn a DC load on or off at predetermined battery voltage settings. Both LVD (low voltage disconnect) and LVR (low voltage reconnect) set points are user adjustable.

DC Diversion Mode

In this mode, all power, which is not used to maintain a full charge on the batteries, is diverted to a load dump such as water or space heaters. Diversion mode is used to regulate microhydro and wind turbine systems which need a constant load.

LED Status Indicator

A simple to read, multi-color LED indicates operating status and is standard on all C Series controllers.

UL and cUL Listed

C Series controllers are listed by UL to exacting UL 1741 and cUL CSA 22.2 107.1-95 standards. C Series controllers are also CE compliant (European countries) and are designed to CTIK standards (Australia). Their current ratings are "real world" and do not have to be derated to comply with USA NEC 125% over-current requirements.
