Battery Monitors & System Controllers

After you've spent a lot of time and money on setting up your Renewable Energy System, the first thing you want to know is… IS IT WORKING? The first pieces of equipment you’re going to want to look at are the System Controllers and Battery Monitors, usually they're not in the same unit.

A Battery Monitor most often includes an accumulating amp-hour meter, a volt meter and an amp meter with a shunt. This unit is best placed in the kitchen or somewhere that it is in view all the time. In the end the most basic question you’ll always ask is… "What is the battery state of charge?" Because it determines whether you can watch a movie tonight or not… see? With a Battery Monitor you really just get to look… It usually provides no system programming functions. There are exceptions to this.

A System Meter or System Controller is the brain of your system, this is where you program all the parameters of your system… the battery charge settings for the Inverter/Generator, sleep modes, Gen start etc. This unit goes right next to the Inverter and the Batteries. While it does give a little amount of information on the health of the system is usually can’t replace a Battery Monitor. So in the end you will probably need both, a System Controller near the Inverter and Batteries to do the programing and the Battery Monitor in your kitchen to tell you what is going on.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
