Victron SmartSolar MPPT 20A Bluetooth Solar Charge Controller Product Features:

Bluetooth Smart: Built-in for Easy Solar Management

Experience the ease of wireless setup, monitoring, updating, and synchronising with our SmartSolar Charge Controllers.

VE.Direct: Your Wired Data Connection Solution

For a seamless wired data connection to a Color Control GX, other GX devices, PC, or other devices.

Ultra-fast Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT): Optimise Solar Energy Harvest

Perfect for cloudy skies and fluctuating light intensity, our ultra-fast MPPT controller can boost your energy harvest by up to 30% compared to PWM charge controllers, and up to 10% more than slower MPPT controllers.

Load Output: Avoid Battery Over-discharge

By connecting all loads to the load output, over-discharge of the battery can be prevented. The load output disconnects the load when the battery reaches a pre-set voltage. Discover our intelligent battery management algorithm for optimal operation.

Battery Life: Intelligent Battery Management for Longevity

Our Battery Life algorithm ensures your solar charge controller recharges the battery efficiently, avoiding cycles between a ‘partially charged’ state and the ‘end of discharge’ state, which can shorten battery life. Achieve near full recharge about once every week.

Programmable Battery Charge Algorithm: Customisable to Your Needs

Explore the software section on our website for more details about customising your battery charge algorithm.

Day/Night Timing and Light Dimming Options

For more information on this feature, please visit the software section on our website.

Internal Temperature Sensor: For Accurate Charge Compensation

Our internal temperature sensor compensates absorption and float charge voltage for temperature fluctuations.

Optional External Battery Voltage and Temperature Sensing via Bluetooth

Use a Smart Battery Sense or a BMV-712 Smart Battery Monitor to communicate battery voltage and temperature to one or more SmartSolar Charge Controllers.

Advanced Charging Features of Victron Energy's MPPT Solar Charge ControllerVictron SmartSolar 30A 50A MPPT Simple Wiring Schematic

Adaptive 3-Stage Battery Charging

Victron's MPPT Solar Charge Controller utilizes a sophisticated 3-stage charging process, comprising of Bulk, Absorption, and Float stages for efficient battery charging.

Bulk Stage

During the Bulk stage, the solar charger delivers the maximum charge current to rapidly charge the batteries. As the battery voltage gradually increases and reaches the set absorption voltage, the Bulk stage transitions into the Absorption stage.

Absorption Stage

In the Absorption stage, the solar charger switches to a constant voltage mode, and the current supplied to the battery slowly decreases. When the current drops below 2A, the charger transitions into the Float stage. The Absorption time is adaptive, short for shallow discharges but longer after deep discharges, to ensure optimal battery recharging.

Float Stage

The Float stage maintains the batteries at a reduced voltage, preserving their full charged state. The absence of a storage stage sets our solar charger apart, as it ceases charging at night when there is no solar power.

Flexible Charge Algorithm

The VictronConnect App provides a choice of 8 pre-set charge algorithms, or alternatively, a fully programmable charge algorithm. Customize the charge voltages, stage duration, and charge current for maximum charging efficiency. A rotary switch can also be used to set 8 pre-programmed algorithms.

Equalization Charging

For some lead-acid battery types, periodic equalization charge is essential. This process increases the charge voltage above the regular charge voltages for cell balancing. If required, enable equalization charging using the VictronConnect App.

About Victron Energy Markets

Automotive

The automotive market comprises a broad range of applications requiring a reliable power supply. In vehicles such as fire engines, ambulances and police cars a human life may depend on an autonomous system. So it is vital that all systems function flawlessly. Victron Energy offers you such an answer. We are proud to offer you our modern translation for freedom and independence. Energy. Anytime. Anywhere.

Off-Grid and Backup

The presence of a functional electricity grid is not always as obvious as it would seem to be. An insufficient infrastructure is often the cause for an unreliable grid. Things become even more difficult when there is no grid at all. And yet you are in need of a reliable electricity supply. A local and properly functioning system is the only answer at this point. Victron Energy offers you such an answer. We are proud to offer you our modern translation for freedom and independence. Energy, Anytime, Anywhere

Marine

Whether you’re going on a short fishing trip or planning to sail across the ocean, you’ll need reliable power to enjoy your adventure to the fullest. But at Victron we believe reliability isn’t enough. We believe in Optimal Energy instead. In our view, a boat needs an intelligent power grid that adapts to any challenges you may encounter. With unparalleled reliability, without effort and at great value for money. That’s what we call Optimal Energy.

Energy Storage

As more solar and wind power comes on line, it becomes increasingly difficult and expensive, to ensure stability of the grid. Intermediate energy storage is therefore rapidly becoming an essential tool to keep power fluctuations on the grid within manageable limits. Moreover, as feed-in tariffs are decreasing, the business case for a home energy storage system that increases self-consumption becomes more solid every day. Intermediate energy storage increases self-consumption of harvested solar and/or wind power. The natural next step is 100% self-consumption and independence from the grid.
