Description

The SB3000i 30A/12V MPPT charge controller by Blue Sky Energy manages 400W for 36-cell panels or 12V/22A 290W for 60-cell solar panels. A smart choice for anyone wanting a full-feature MPPT controller for a single 60-cell module in the 280-310 Watt range, or for an array of standard 36-cell modules.

Compact, reliable, and fully programmable, the SB3000i. The SB3000i, featuring Blue Sky’s patented MPPT technology, is ideal for RVs and Marine applications with a second battery output and IPN connection for remote display and networking. This controller can be programmed from its onboard display or in conjunction with an IPN ProRemote. This gives maximum flexibility when operating PV street lighting or using for small-scale off-grid electrification.

Compatible with FLA, AGM, Gel, and Lithium batteries. Its IPN Network interface can communicate with other Blue Sky Energy charge controllers as a single charging system, allowing increased flexibility and optimization in system design.

Functionality…
  • Patented MPPT technology charges batteries faster
  • Networks with other Blue Sky controllers for higher power (SB3000i only master)
  • Longer battery life with advanced multi-stage charging (FLA,AGM,GEL)
  • Equalize batteries automatically or manually
  • Charge a second battery or control a DC load output
  • Program for Dusk-to-Dawn Lighting Control with the IPN Pro Remote
  • Battery Temperature Compensation (with external battery temp. sensor)
  • Protects battery from deep discharge (via load output)
  • Automatically reconnects load when power is available
