FOX-260, FOX-260 Li and FOX-360 are programmable charge controller for 1 or 2 seperate battery systems with integrated LCD display. The display has a backlight. The characters are kept extra large, so that it can be read from a distance. The controllers are characterized by its ease use of operation and elegant design.
The controllers are designed for up to 20A charge current, suitable for AGM-, Gel- and Lead-Acid-batteries. Also a special Lithium version is available. Using the keyboard, you can select between different displays and the base settings can be adjusted. The optimized charge characteristic curve in combination with the hardware PWM control achieve a significantly faster and gentler charging of the battery, dangerous gassing or overcharging are prevented.
The backlit graphical LCD display shows actual informations for:
- Voltage of the battery 1 [V]
- Voltage of the battery 2 [V]
- Load current [A]
- generated module current [A]
- Power consumption [A]
- Battery state of charge (as a bar diagram)
Display and keypad are used to set several parametes. E.g. set type of the battery type, various screens are available. After pressing a button, the backlight remains active 30 sec.
The adaptive deep discharge protection monitors and protects the battery from harmful discharge. If the battery voltage is reduced too much, the devices connected at terminals L + / L- are switched off automatically. If the battery voltage is increasing again, consumers are switched on automatically.
Alternatively the night light function can be used. When using the nightlight function, a consumer will be switched on during the time the modules do not supply charge current (i.e. when it is dark). Ideal for the operation of an orientation light or small lights for the prevention of break-ins.
12V / 24V automatic recognition
The charge regulator detects the voltage automatically. The active reverse current protection provides during charge an extremely low voltage drop between panel and battery. By night it stops any current flow back to the panels.
more about FOX-360
Fox-360 is designed to charge two independant battery systems. The battery types can be different and can be set by using the display and keypad.
Ex works 90% of the energy will be flow to battery 1 and 10% to battery 2. The charging ratio could be set individually between 5%/95% and 95%/5% (B1/B2).
The consumers connected at the terminals L + / L – are always powered by battery 1. Battery 2 is typically the starter or service battery. If no second battery is connected, battery 1 receives automatically 100% of the energy.
