The SmartSolar MPPT RS solar charge controllers are Victron’s solution for systems with large series-connected PV arrays charging 48 V DC battery banks. This product is perfect for large off-grid, and grid-connected battery systems.
Available in a 5.76kW and 11.52kW model, features include a wide 80-450 VDC operating solar voltage input, independent tracking inputs, full connectivity, isolated PV connections, display screen, and fully programmable battery charging parameters and active cooling. The new metal case design and fully covered electrical connections improve the safety and modernize the presentation in line with the latest suite of Victron products.
MPPT: Ultra Fast Maximum Power Point Tracking
The SmartSolar RS solar charge controller connects to a PV array of between 80 and 450 Volt Voc and will efficiently charge your 48V battery bank with either 100A or 200A.
The charge settings are fully programmable and can be set up for different battery chemistries, like lead-acid, lithium, and more.
Setup and monitor with VictronConnect
The SmartSolar RS charge controller can be remotely controlled and configured over Bluetooth via the VictronConnect App. This allows device set-up, management, and at-a-glance information, such as battery voltage and current, PV voltage and current, historical data and trends.
Daisy Chain Additional Units
The SmartSolar RS charge controller is equipped with VE.Can bus ports. This allows for communication with additional SmartSolar RS & VE.Can MPPT units. The additional units are simply “daisy-chained” to each other with an RJ45 cable.
When connected to each other, all individual charge controllers will synchronize their charge stages. They can also send their data, via the same cable, for monitoring to a GX device (such as the Cerbo GX).
Remote Monitoring and Control
If the GX device is connected to the internet, the Victron Remote Management Portal (VRM) provides access to the full power of your SmartSolar RS charge controllers.
If your installation is connected to a GX device and the internet, Victron Remote Management Portal (VRM) provides access to the full power of your MPPT, anytime, anywhere; for free.
For remote installations – even when there is no internet connection nearby – you may be able to monitor your MPPT by connecting the GlobalLink 520.
The SmartSolar RS charge controller is equipped with a display on the front panel. The display reads battery volts, charge current and voltages from both array’s individually including instantaneous and total figures and unit status including any possible error codes.
The SmartSolar RS charge controller is equipped with a programmable relay and options for remote temperature and voltage sensing. The remote input can accept the Victron smallBMS and other types of BMS with allow-to-charge signals.
