FAQ: T80HV Charge Controller

Q.

Does the T80HV have ground fault protection?

A. No, Ground fault protection is not built in, but Apollo Solar offers GFP circuit breakers for both the T80 and T80HV.

 

Q.

How does the T80HV increase battery life?

A. The T80 & T80HV incorporate precision charging.  Through 4-wire measurement of battery terminal voltage; high resolution analog to digital conversion of critical inputs; and battery temperature compensation, the batteries are charged more efficiently.  This equates to longer battery life.

 


Q.

Does the T80 automatically sense the battery size and type, and configure appropriately?

A. The T80 & T80HV automatically sense the battery voltage, and prompts the installer to enter the battery type and capacity through an easy-to-use user interface.

 


Q.

Can I reduce the number of panels needed by using the T80 HV Charge Controller?

A. The T80 & T80HV MPPT algorithm harvests up to 35% more energy than comparable units.  This gets you more energy with less panels.

 

 

Q.

What is the maximum input voltage? Max VOC?

A. The maximum operating voltage of the T80 is 140 Vdc. Above this, the unit will shut down to avoid damage. The absolute maximum applied input voltage the controller can accept without damage which is 150 Vdc. Each PV module has specific ratings for voltage and current at standard test conditions and temperatures, the manufacturers also publish current and temperature coefficients. The Voc for any PV module increases in cold temperatures. Modules are rated with an assumed cell temperature of 25o C, when calculated at 0o C there may be as much as a 25% increase in the rated Voc. The Voc voltage temperature coefficient for the specific location of the installation must be calculated from known weather data. Once the maximum Voc of the module is found a series string voltage may be determined

 

Q.

What makes the Apollo Solar Charge Controller so efficient?

A. The Apollo Solar TurboCharger is the most efficient PV battery charge controller available today due to 3 specific areas in the core design:

The use of Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) makes the entire PV system up to 30% more efficient because it uses all of the output from the PV panels regardless of sunlight, latitude or temperature conditions. Our patent-pending MPPT system provides the quickest tracking to follow rapid changes in these conditions.

All the power circuit components are designed for very low resistance. The amount of power lost in any conductor is proportional to the resistance times the current squared. Since the output current can exceed 75 Amps, we have used special design techniques to keep all the resistances as close to zero as possible.
