Questions & Answers

What is the purpose of the load output? I am assuming the output with the light bulb symbol is the load output.

Is it preferable to connect an inverter to the load terminals as opposed to connecting it directly to the battery? Why?
Asked by: Pete
I don't want to be contentious, but "Me" in Oregon is not correct (with all due respect, see more below). The only reason i know is that I thought the same thing he/she did and kept draining my batteries every night. So here's the answer: This thing is basically a street light, or night light controller. So you can basically program the "Load" to turn on at sunset and turn off at dawn, or you can vary that by several hours before/after dawn each way. It is NOT a Load "DIVERTER", which is what "Me" describes. If your batteries are fully charged, then it WILL divert some power to the load; that's true. So at 2pm when the sun is bright, the load will be activated. But at night, it will turn the load on as well, and run your batteries down to the disconnect voltage, about 11.xV. If you want a true load DIVERTER, then you're looking at something like the Xantrex Schneider C40 series which can be used as an charge controller, OR as a Load Diverter. THIS IS the type of product that "Me" actually describes. I thought the same thing at first. The only thing I think of for an application similar to the one "Me" describes, would be to hook up a dump load, which i don't see on the HD website, to divert excess power when batteries are charged, and install a blocking diode inline with the battery connection that prevents battery discharge, but that is not how this thing is designed. Think of it as a Street Light controller, which it is good for. It will overcharge batteries if the solar panels are large enough.

Can you select your own charging profile, i.e. Boost Voltage, Float Voltage and Equalization Voltage with this controller?
Asked by: HappyCamper
http://www.grapesolar.com/docs/GS-PWM-40BT%20manual.pdf The manual is available online here. It appears that some parameters are user settable. However, some of the parameters you mention can only be set by select Pb/Acid, Gel, AGM, and Lithium presets. The lithium charging value can be selected it appears.

I decided to invest in a better quality & this controller has proven to be better than the rest. Just don't know how to get the code for using Bluetooth app. there was no instructions in the manual-should have been included. Controller works great though & even has output controlled with a daylight switch-no need for extra hardware.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Using it, but not real pleased This product was advertised to manage and monitor load. Any load drawing more current than a small LED lightbulb trips the circuit. I set the over-discharge and recovery voltage per technician guidance, but no joy. Charging management works fine so far.
