The SmartSolar MPPT RS solar charge controllers are Victron's solution for systems with large series-connected PV arrays charging 48 VDC battery banks. This product is perfect for large off-grid and grid-connected battery systems.
Available in a 5.76 kW and 11.52 kW model. Features include a wide 80-450 VDC operating solar voltage input, independent tracking inputs, full connectivity, isolated PV connections, display screen, fully programmable battery charging parameters and active cooling. The new metal enclosure design and fully covered electrical connections improve safety and modernize the presentation in line with Victron's latest product line.
MPPT: Ultra-fast Maximum Power Point Tracking.
The SmartSolar RS solar charge controller connects to an 80 to 450 volt Voc PV array and efficiently charges your 48V battery bank at 100A or 200A. Charge settings are fully programmable and can be set for different battery chemistries, such as lead acid, lithium and others.
Setup and monitoring with VictronConnect
The SmartSolar RS charge controller can be remotely controlled and configured via Bluetooth using the VictronConnect app. This allows for device setup and management, as well as at-a-glance information such as battery voltage and current, PV voltage and current, history data and trends.
Additional units connected in series
The SmartSolar RS charge controller is equipped with VE.Can bus connections. This allows communication with additional SmartSolar RS & VE.Can MPPT units. The additional units are simply "daisy chained" together with an RJ45 cable.
When linked together, all individual charge controllers synchronize their charge levels. They can also send their data to a GX device (such as the Cerbo GX) via the same cable for monitoring.
Remote monitoring and control
When the GX device is connected to the Internet, the Victron Remote Management Portal (VRM) provides access to the full power of your SmartSolar RS charge controllers.
If your installation is connected to a GX device and the internet, the Victron Remote Management Portal (VRM) provides access to the full power of your MPPT, anytime, anywhere; free of charge.
For remote installations - even if there is no internet connection nearby - you may be able to monitor your MPPT by connecting the GlobalLink 520
The SmartSolar RS charge controller is equipped with a display on the front panel. The display shows battery voltages, charge current, and voltages from both arrays individually, including instantaneous and total numbers, as well as device status, including all possible error codes.
The SmartSolar RS charge controller is equipped with a programmable relay and options for remote temperature and voltage sensing. The remote input can accept Victron smallBMS and other types of BMS with charging permission signals.
