480 Watt Premium Quality RV Solar Kit
An excellent RV / Off Grid system for years of safe dependable and continuous power.
With New Cutting Edge Bogart Technology. Tandem 30a Charge Controller & Trimetric System Monitor
Probably the smartest PWM RV solar charge controller ever made
It uses the Trimetric 2030 smart meter for the brain to tell it what to do. The 480W system is a great match with 1-2 pairs of Golf Cart type 6v deep cycle batteries. For optimum charging of batteries we recommend setting the SC2030 the exact voltage settings from the battery manufacturer, plus temperature compensation and the high voltage limit.
For different types and brands of batteries see the Bogart charge parameter calculator here
The Trimetric knows the exact status of the battery charge state because it's tracking everything in and out. It controls and customizes the charging parameters of the SC-2030 for maximum efficiency and to obtain a greater state of charge.
The SC-2030 is a superior solar controller that uses temperature sensing to follow the recommended charging procedures specified by battery companies. Many if not most charger controllers being sold charge at voltages lower than recommended even without temp sensing, which results in gradual steady loss of battery capacity. Several companies recommend voltages occasionally to be as high as 16.3 volts at low temperatures when batteries are at 32 degrees F.

SC2030 Controller NOTE:
Assembled, the solar in and battery out lugs are exposed.
To make the temperature sensor or communications connections, which are on the back of the TRIMETRIC board, the end user needs to drill holes in the housing. (The Trimetric 2030RV housing does not have any holes either)
You can drill the entrance holes where they would be best for your particular setup.
