The Xantrex xw 60A 150v Mppt Solar Regulator allows to connect 800w, 1600w or 3200w in panels for systems at 12, 24 and 48V respectively.
The Xantrex xw 150v 60A Mppt Solar Regulator is a configurable maximizing controller for lead acid, gel and agm batteries valid for 12, 24, 48 and 60 volt systems. It has equalization and can be connected to a network through the conext combox if we also have xantrex inverters to monitor the photovoltaic installation and view it using computers and tablets. It allows to connect 800w, 1600w or 3200w in panels for systems at 12, 24 and 48 volts respectively.
The Xantrex xw 60A 150v Mppt Solar Regulator for a perfect battery charge
With the xantrex xw 60A maximizing regulator we will have the peace of mind that the batteries of the photovoltaic system are of whatever type they are going to receive millimeter charges and we will always obtain the maximum of their energy in well dimensioned systems. The xantrex xw 60 regulator is capable of obtaining the maximum daily production from the solar panels and will show all the information on its lcd screen with input and output voltages and instantaneous charging energy.
Advantages of a 60A 150v Xantrex xw Mppt Solar Regulator compared to a conventional pwm
In the market there are two types of regulators, the maximizers or mppt like the xantrex xw of 60 amps 150v and there are also the so-called pwm (modulation by pulse width). Mppt regulators have many advantages over pwm and are the recommended option as long as the budget allows.
- In the first place, an mppt regulator allows the series connection of panels, that is, we can enter the regulator at a voltage higher than that of the battery. In this xantrex mppt 60Ah regulator we have a maximum of 150 volts in photovoltaic input open circuit, so for example in a 24 volt system we can connect panels in three series like this Amerisolar 265w panel. For an example of a 265w three-plate system we will have to:
- At the input of the xantrex xw 60Ah regulator we will have 90 volts in a closed circuit and about 8.7 amps. The mppt will act on the battery output and lower that voltage to charge the battery and raise the amps. with what we will have at the output (depending on the charging stage) for example 27 volts and 29 amps of battery charging. By being able to enter a higher voltage, we facilitate series connection by reducing the wiring section and minimizing losses due to voltage drop.
- Secondly, with a xantrex xw 60 mppt regulator we obtain more production than with a pwm, the mppt takes advantage of 100% of what the photovoltaic panel produces, obtaining yields of up to 30% higher than pwm. With fewer panels we obtain the same performance as with a pwm regulator and more panels, so the higher investment of the mppt is justified by lowering the investment in the photovoltaic panel. For example, 8 300w panels with a pwm dimmer will perform roughly the same as 6 300w panels with a mppt dimmer.
- Thirdly, we have that the mppt charges more on cloudy days since by connecting panels in series and entering a higher voltage, on cloudy days the mppt will charge earlier thanks to the fact that it will always have enough voltage to exceed that of the battery . In an mppt regulator like the voltronic we enter at 90 volts, if it is cloudy this value can go down due to the low irradiation to 60-70v which is higher than the 24 volts of the system and therefore will contribute the load produced by the panels. In the pwm we enter 35 volts, so if it is cloudy we can have less than 24 volts at certain times and we cannot exceed the battery voltage and therefore charge.
