SunSport 6 Amp - Advanced Solar Control
Our latest innovation in solar charge controllers, the SunSport series. Tough, easy to install and practically indestructible.
This high performance solar charge controller increases battery life by preventing overcharging. Starts charging at 2.5 battery volts.
The control also prevents power loss back into the solar modules at night, so an external blocking diode is not required.
Unique no battery drain - Battery standby power consumption is zero! In the dark they use absolutely zero power, ideal for PV systems where efficiency is important. Boaters can leave it connected all winter without draining the batteries. Other controls, which have a standby current draw, will drain the battery over the winter with no solar input, reducing the freeze protection of the battery.
Efficient Design – our latest innovation; automatic nighttime shutdown with an intelligent design results in the controller using < 1/10th the power of the industry average. Other controls stay on all night, wasting precious power. Save up to 10% more power from a 5 Watt module.
Safer - SunSport controls have more built in protection and safety features than any others on the market. They feature automatic over-temperature shutdown, protection from battery removal conditions, over-current, solar and battery reverse polarity, short circuit and over-voltage protection of the inputs and outputs. Eco Energy is the first to combine all of these safety features into one controller. In remote applications, there is no need to worry about accidentally damaging the controllers.
The new Sunsport 6 Amp charge controllers provide you with many benefits over the Sunguard.
