Solar Charge Controller
The La Marche Solar Charge Controller is available in two models, the SCM (Solar Charge Controller – MPPT Technology) and SCP (Solar Charge Controller – PWM Technology). Both models regulate the voltage and current from the solar modules to properly charge the battery and supply the load. In order to maximize the power that can be extracted from the solar modules, the SCM Controller utilizes Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) algorithm. For a simplified version, the SCP controller regulates the charging power using Pulse Width Modulation (PWM). The Solar Charge Controller is available in 10A and 20A versions with 12/24V auto-select output. Both controller models feature built-in protection for solar modules, batteries and load connections. Additional features include Low Voltage Load Disconnect, Status LEDs, USB connection for diagnostic parameters and an extra set of output terminals for additional loads.
USC Ultra Series Charger
The La Marche Ultra Series Charger is a High Frequency Switch Mode charger specifically designed to charge various types of chemistries, such as Lead Acid, Nickel Cadmium and Ultra Capacitors.The case is specifically designed with 16 Ga anodized aluminum for maximum strength against corrosion, while its weight gives the ability to the user for easy handling and installation, without the necessity of a second person. Case is equipped with knockouts, for optional cable entry, either from the sides or the bottom. Removable cover, located on the front, gives access to the customer connections, temperature probe, as well as, the alarm terminals.
