Surviving the Storm with Low Power Burn
Every controller uses power. While a typical PWM controller burns 9mA, the Genasun GV-5 burns a scant 0.15mA. That slow burn is perfect for waiting out a snow-covered panel, or a few bad weeks of clouds.
Partial Shade Ÿ?? In-City Applications.
Genasun controllers shine in partial shade. The 50% power increase from GenasunŸ??s advanced MPPT is often enough to prevent system downtime from partial shade. From street signs and tree branches, to coffee cups and stickers placed on panels by pedestrians, Genasun MPPT keeps partially shaded solar panels generating more power than any other controller.
Complete Power Management
The GV-5-L does it all. Plug in the solar panel, connect the battery, and connect the load. The GV-5 will automatically maximize the solar power collected. The advanced battery charging algorithm will maximize the lifetime and capacity of your battery system. The load output will provide smooth, filtered power without the AC chatter found in lesser controllers. This little black box does it all, efficiently and consistently.
Steady Power Source
Life is unpredictable. PWM controllers amplify that unpredictability. A small amount of shade can drop PWM power output to 2/3's of what a Genasun MPPT controller can draw from the same panel. By constantly adapting to changing light conditions, GenasunŸ??s advanced MPPT controllers provide a steadier source of power, keeping your system running in uncertain weather.
Most MPPT solar charge controllers broadcast Radio Frequency noise from the DC/DC conversion circuit. Unfiltered inputs and outputs waste energy and interfere with nearby or attached electronics. Genasun worked to eliminated RF emissions from our line of charge controllers. During third-party testing for FCC compliance, the test engineer asked us, Ÿ??Is it on?Ÿ?�. Mission accomplished.
No Fans. No Relays.
Fans get clogged with dust and dirt. Relays eventually stop switching. Genasun controllers use advanced electrical design that obsoletes these parts. With fewer moving parts to wear out, Genasun controllers outlast the competition.
Plug and Play, with Advanced Error Protections
We all make mistakes. People plug panels in backwards. Rodents chew through cables and cause short circuits. Stuff happens. But don't worry, we've got you covered. Advanced built-in electronic protections will instantly cut power to a short circuit. The controller will automatically test to see when the short is removed. Once it's clear, normal operation will resume.
