The SmartSolar MPPT solar charge controllers from Victron Energy in the 150 volt series include the following four models 150/60, 150/70, 150/85, and 150/100.  The first number in the model name is the maximum PV open circuit voltage and the second number is the rated battery charge current.

Bluetooth Built-in

Remotely control and monitor the extensive features of your SmartSolar MPPT solar charger with built-in Bluetooth by pairing it with your smartphone or other device via the VictronConnect app.  A VE.Direct port enables a wired data connection to a Color Control GX, other GX products, PC or other devices. A remote on-off to connect for example to a VE.BUS BMS.  A programmable relay can be programmed to trip on an alarm or other events

Ultra-fast Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT)

Especially in case of a clouded sky, when light intensity is changing continuously, an ultra-fast MPPT controller will improve energy harvest by up to 30% compared to PWM charge controllers and by up to 10% compared to slower MPPT controllers.

Advanced Maximum Power Point Detection in case of partial shading conditions

If partial shading occurs, two or more maximum power points may be present on the power-voltage curve.  Conventional MPPTs tend to lock to a local MPP, which may not be the optimum MPP.  The innovative BlueSolar algorithm will always maximize energy harvest by locking to the optimum MPP.

Outstanding conversion efficiency

No cooling fan. Maximum efficiency exceeds 98%.  The full output current up to 40°C (104°F).

Flexible charge algorithm

Fully programmable charge algorithm and eight pre-programmed algorithms, selectable with a rotary switch (see manual for details).  Includes a LiFePO4 (lithium iron phosphate) battery profile.

Extensive electronic protection

Over-temperature protection and power derating when temperature is high.  PV short circuit and PV reverse polarity protection.  PV reverse current protection.

Internal temperature sensor

Compensates absorption and float charge voltage for temperature.

Optional external battery voltage and temperature sensing via Bluetooth

A Smart Battery Sense or a BMV-712 Smart Battery Monitor can be used to communicate battery voltage and temperature to one or more SmartSolar Charge Controllers.

Fully discharged battery recovery function

The SmartSolar charge controller will initiate charging even if the battery has been discharged to zero volts.  It will also reconnect to a fully discharged Li-ion battery with integrated disconnect function.

Optional: SmartSolar pluggable LCD display

Simply remove the rubber seal that protects the plug on the front of the controller and plug-in the SmartSolar Control display.

      Notes 1a-  If more PV power is connected, the controller will limit input power.
      1b - The PV voltage must exceed Vbat + 5V for the controller to start. Thereafter the minimum PV voltage is Vbat + 1V.
