Product Description

A solar charger gathers energy from your solar panels, and stores it in your batteries. Using the latest, fastest technology, Victron Energy SmartSolar MPPT 150/85-Tr VE.Can maximizes this energy-harvest, driving it intelligently to achieve full charge in the shortest possible time. SmartSolar maintains battery health, extending its life. The VE.Can feature is the ideal solution for synchronised parallel operation of up to 25 controllers.

By constantly monitoring the voltage and current output of your solar (PV) panels, MPPT technology ensures that every drop of available power is rinsed out of your panels, and harvested for storage. The advantage of this is most noticeable when the sky is partially clouded, and light intensity is constantly changing.


  • Ultra-fast Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT)
    Especially in case of a clouded sky, when light intensity is changing continuously, an ultra-fast MPPT controller will improve energy harvest by up to 30% compared to PWM charge controllers and by up to 10% compared to slower MPPT controllers.

  • Advanced Maximum Power Point Detection in case of partial shading conditions
    If partial shading occurs, two or more maximum power points (MPP) may be present on the powervoltage curve. Conventional MPPTs tend to lock to a local MPP, which may not be the optimum MPP. The innovative SmartSolar algorithm will always maximize energy harvest by locking to the optimum MPP.

  • Outstanding conversion efficiency
    No cooling fan. Maximum efficiency exceeds 98%.

  • Flexible charge algorithm
    Fully programmable charge algorithm, and eight pre-programmed algorithms, selectable with a rotary switch (see manual for details).

  • Extensive electronic protection
    Over-temperature protection and power derating when temperature is high. PV short circuit and PV reverse polarity protection. PV reverse current protection.

  • Bluetooth Smart built-in
    The wireless solution to set-up, monitor, update and synchronise SmartSolar Charge Controllers.

  • Internal temperature sensor and optional external battery voltage and temperature sensing via Bluetooth
    A Smart Battery Sense or a BMV-712 Smart Battery Monitor can be used to communicate battery voltage and temperature to one or more SmartSolar Charge Controllers.

  • Fully discharged battery recovery function
    Will initiate charging even if the battery has been discharged to zero volts.
    Will reconnect to a fully discharged Li-ion battery with integrated disconnect function.

  • VE.Can: the multiple controller solution
    Up to 25 units can be synchronised with VE.Can

  • VE.Direct or VE.Can
    For a wired data connection to a Color Control GX, other GX products, PC or other devices

  • Remote on-off
    To connect for example to a VE.BUS BMS.

  • Programmable relay
    Can be programmed to trip on an alarm, or other events.

  • Optional: SmartSolar pluggable LCD display
    Simply remove the rubber seal that protects the plug on the front of the controller, and plug-in the display.

  • 5 year warranty
