Trace / Xantrex
C12 Charge Controller
12 Amps

The C12's field configurability and feature packed design makes it the only small PV controller you need!

Photovoltaic Charge Controller
      • Silent, solid state, series pulse width modulated (PWM) charge control with 3-stage (bulk, absorb, & float).
      • Field adjustable set-points with removable knobs to reduce tampering (bulk range: 13.0 to 17.0 VDC).
      • Electronic short circuit, overload, over-temperature and reverse polarity protection improves reliability.
      • Automatic reset of overload protection system--eliminates problems of tripped breakers and blown fuses.
      • High efficiency, "No diode" design without electronics in the negative conductors (as per NEC code).
      • Optional plug-in/replaceable temperature compensation sensor --ideal for sealed batteries.
      • Continuous rating of 12 amps @ 113°F /45°C and 8 amps @ 150°F/65°C for severe environments.
      • Designed for 15 amps of short-circuit PV array current (typically about four 50 watt modules).
      • Two stage lightning and surge suppression through both active and passive protection components.
      • Equalize mode (@ bulk+1DC for 2 hours) with automatic activation every 30 days or if LVD is reached (defeatable).
DC Load Controller
      • Automatic low voltage disconnect (LVD) with adjustable set-point (LVD range 10.5 to 12.5 VDC).
      • Automatic low voltage reconnect (LVR) with adjustable set-point (LVR range 12.0 to 14.0 VDC)
      • Selectable automatic or manuals re-connection of loads after low voltage disconnect accurs.
      • Electronic short-circuit, overload, over-temperature and reverse polarity protection improves reliability.
      • Continuous rating of 12 amps @ 113°F /45°C and 8 amps @ 150°F/65°C for severe environments.
      • Low voltage disconnect warning system--blinks loads on-off-on when the battery voltage is below the low voltage disconnect setting after a two minute delay. Loads are then disconnected after a 5 minute additional time delay unless loads have been reduced and voltage has risen above the low voltage disconnect set-point.
      • Manual reset switch on bottom of enclosure allows one-time 10 minute grace period for operation of DC loads after reset has occurred. Additional pushes have no effect until voltage reaches the low voltage reconnect setting.
Automatic Lighting Controller
    • Automatic control of lighting systems with nighttime detection by using the PV array as a photocell.
    • Adjustable run duration from 2 to 8 hours or "dusk to dawn" all night operation of lights, unless LVD is reached.
    • Electronic short-circuit, overload, over-temperature and reverse polarity protection improves reliability.
    • Continuous rating of 12 amps @ 113°F /45°C and 8 amps @ 150°F/65°C for severe environments.
    • Manual reset switch on bottom of enclosure allows testing of lights during daytime or after LVD has occurred.
