SCC3 - 12 Volt 20 Amp Solar Charge Controller Kit
The SCC3 kit is the heart of a 12 Volt solar power system,
it regulates the charging of batteries from photovoltaic (PV) solar panels.
A charge controller is an essential part of any solar power system.
A 12 Volt solar power system can provide power to a wide variety of devices
such as lighting systems, Ham and CB radios, car stereos, cell phone chargers,
laptop computers, televisions, recording equipment, fans, water pumps and
other 12V DC loads.
With the addition of a DC to AC inverter, the DC power can be converted to
120 Volts AC for running many household electronic devices.
The SCC3 is suitable for stationary and portable solar power systems.
It is an excellent choice for emergency backup and stand-alone building
The SCC3 is also perfect for recreational vehicle solar power systems.
Combine the SCC3 with a solar panel and rechargeable battery for a reliable
source of DC power that's available, even when the power company is not.
Controls and indicators include
a battery float voltage adjustment, a battery equalize (overcharge) switch
and a red/green Charge/Float LED.
